    Click the image for a larger version on black background.

    As you know, I’m not at all sure whether I approve of this sort of thing (though it’s quite entertaining to play about now and again). I wondered what your honest opinion might be. Do say!

    That’s a better way of displaying pictures. Are you going to tell us how it is done?

    The picture you see in the post is one I uploaded to my CPS private gallery. I inserted its address (i.e. URL) into the post in the usual way, so that it would be displayed in the body of the post.

    I also have a larger copy of this picture on Flickr, and I opened it there in Lightbox (where it displays full size and with a black background). I copied the URL of that web page. I then came back to my post on the CPS site, highlighted the picture displayed there, and clicked the ‘Insert Link’ icon; I then pasted the Flickr URL in the link address field.

    The effect of this is to turn the picture in my post here into a live link to the one on Flickr’s Lightbox.

    (Wallace is using this method a lot.)

    (PS: you can use a completely private Flickr account, but getting the right URL is a bit more trouble. I’ll save that for another post, if anyone asks!)

    I like the toning and vignetting effect. It creates an atmosphere you wouldn’t get with a straight colour photograph.   I think some people enjoying the beach would have finished it off bit you can’t have everything.

    Thanks very much, Peter. Yes, I think you’re right about the atmosphere, and it was what I was hoping to create. (I fear that might have been a bit dispelled by people on the beach in 21st century duvet jackets 😉 – it was a very cold day!)
