Am I going to far ?
« on: January 11, 2016, 02:17:26 PM »
We needed scatter cushions for the settee.  So I had my first go at Meeple stacking...

Hi nottsian,
I like the meeple pillows. Did you made them yourself?

Not at all! Not everyone here is on Facebook and/or Twitter so it's great that you were able to share your photo here too.

Nice meeple stacking too btw! :) :(y)

Yes we did. My wife made them out of micro fleece. We will have 5 eventually a yellow one and a purple one to complete the set. They are 17 ins (43cm) high 19ins (48cm) wide. I only wanted a small plush one for the sofa but she thought it such a good idea she went and made 3.

You're right, Dan. I'm neither Facebook nor Twitter for example. :green-meeple:

You needed not worrying about going too far. I'm pretty sure other members here have gone down that road!  :yellow-meeple:

Post a video of a pillow fight and we'll tell you if you went too far. :)

Seriously, they look good. Well done!

I tried to make the image smaller to view it is really big. Not looked round the forum to see if you have resizing button. I used to have "a smaller image" but won't run on win 10. What do people used to reduce size of pics in posts.

If it's a big picture hosted somewhere else, I usually you can add a width=450  into the img markup tag.

[ img width=450] URL [/img ]

Or sometimes I just attach it, if it's small in size.  Worst case I'd just resize it in MSpaint.

I used to do it in Photoshop but that program takes forever to launch sometimes. Paint on Windows 10 works great to re-size an image.

For me I simply right-click on the image and choose Open With -- Paint (or select other app and then find Paint on the list).
  There is a re-size button with % and pixel options. Afterwards you go to Save as... and choose a new name or overwrite the ol' one.

Great (and free) program for image basic manipulation (including resizing) is XnView.
