D. Akey.

I'm afraid knowledge how to press a button and how to access files on a server are two different things. I have no access to your computer, matey nor do I have access to the forum content other than going through page by page like any other user. Even at that, compressing every picture you did would be kinda excessive. We're not talking one or two pictures here.

So my contribution to your cordial response is that it's likely not going to happen.

Although Mr Ploos, your good heart is front and center.

I suppose you could go through the thread and download the pictures you want off the forums one by one, or you can grab a displayed page at a time and then separate out the picture files. Multiply that by 1500 and you have an idea of the work involved.

I see. I have no idea then, I'm afraid, since I don't know which those would be. I think he could well go in and select those which he favors in that case and just grab them.

We've gotta figure out how to get your computer back up to scratch eight +! There are a gagillion people in the world who might know just how to fix things right, we just need to find ONE of them and get it going for you! If there is a financial road bump in your way, then we should do a little crowdfunding. It can't possibly cost so much to accomplish that if a bunch of us pitched in a few quid it wouldn't be fixed in a snap. What say Ragers? How we gonna let eight + flounder with a computer running on hamsters and rabid squirrels? Let's make a plan!

Tallye Ho old bean, wot? So ye changed shape from what to what? Got wider? Put on a few pounds, did ye? Stressin' that poor horse's back?

PozDrawSki Sez: Look at it this way, yer shape-shiftin' Merlinship. When ye widened it all, the horse broadened into a good stout Clydesdale. And over here in the States, Clydesdales are for one purpose only -- haluin' beer. So grab a hammer and lets tap that keg. I'm likin' the practical nature of this particular touch oop. Drinkin' off a few pints should lighten the horse's load a bit, which is a genuine kindness to the animals and should garner us our Druidic Merit Badges for Animal Hoosbandry. Oh, an did ye 'appen ta pack along yer darts?

D Akey
09-20-2019, 10:31 AM
Got me, MacPloos. No idea why it gets big or small. In a former incarnation of the forum software there was a size restriction, and the software recalculated and reduced the file size of the attachments. No idea anymore. If I were guessing, it would be the dimensions of your original that you're uploading. It can be a low resolution with big physical dimensions.

PozDrawSki sez: Ach, laddie. Choost take it as the gods of Art high upon Mount Olympus are gettin' right up in yer mug an' tellin' ye, "Cause I like yer paintins and we want ta see em on a grand Olympian scale! -- Call it our big screen TV."

Doing a test here. I reduced the whole file 30ish percent where yours (as I grabbed it) had the dimensions roughly of 11 inches at 71 dpi, this version now is reduced to roughly 4 inches also at 71 dpi.
If it remains small, the culprit is likely your original picture dimensions that you're working at.

------- Took time here to upload the image -----------

Well, since this is now small, it suggests that it's not the forum software to be what's making it larger, but it's the original size you gave it (even if you didn't actually set the dimensions of the canvas consciously. It seems to be that size by default.)

Just a guess, lad.

D Akey
09-23-2019, 07:06 AM
Briex -- A very worthy AR user. He regularly blew my mind with how he seemed to really have absorbed the classical painting sense popular in his part of the world. Hope the reason he disappeared was because he got too busy with commissions to have time to post and say hello.

This site used to be something of a clearing house for artists who wished to show their work for employment. Sort of got derailed, but for a while there were some particularly hot artists coming through these portals. Either that or they were so good they got work quickly. I guess they grew up and left home. <sigh>

Nice treatment ye done. And as to the birds on the beach. . . forget about keeping PozDrawSki away. He's like a pooch chasing the birds into the air, barking his fool head off from the sport.

09-25-2019, 02:09 AM
Check the rotator cuff. That's the likely culprit. Painful as hell. Makes it hard to raise your arm. Had that problem, in my case it was from foolishness falling asleep in my easy chair with my arms propping me up and me sagging down against them like circus tent poles. So that meant the weight of my torso and head were pulling the shoulder joint apart little by little. After doing it for long periods it finally pulled apart and I was left with the pain and trying to figure out what happened. Took some time to heal.

Me mum who is 93 has her own version of it and the surgeon is recommending a replacement. In her case she also has arthritis in her shoulder. So it could be that as well.

PozDrawSki sez: Best not tell doctors what's what lest they blow you off, lad. But you could voice a wonder that it could be the rotator cuff because you have a friend with a similar problem. If it's not that, that's good to eliminate it from the problem. But it well could be and I'm surprised they're not talking about that as a possibility if it's not a broken bone.

Go man go!!!!

Feel better!

D Akey
09-25-2019, 05:11 AM
Just a real caution from me to you, MacPloos. . . some of those warnings that say you've been hacked are actually hackers themselves impersonating Microsoft so as to get you to give them access to your credit cards, bank accounts and computer. I would be very suspicious because they do a good job making you feel like a fool and then they say they'll take care of you. . .if you do whatever they are saying you should.

They prey on old folks who are not computer savvy and are used to people fixing their computers. So be very careful lad to not give them anything or let them have remote access to your computer or let them put any software on your computer. So do you have a MAC or PC? I thought you were using Apple devices for a time.

Good luck.

Go man go!

09-25-2019, 05:04 PM
I agree with Mr. Akey. Not too long ago I came home in the nick of time to stop my husband from being fooled by one of these hoaxes. He is not computer savvy and is very trusting. This particular scam started with bells and whistles (literally) to scare him and get him to cooperate with their instructions. He was told ring a certain number to switch off the alarm noise. Which he did. This is when I appeared on the scene and disconnected the call and switched off his computer. That was the end of it and no damage done thankfully.

So don't believe them when they say you are 'hacked' just switch of you computer, at the mains if necessary. When you reboot your browser might tell you that you closed down with browser windows open and ask if you want to restore them. Say No! Because you will open the scam site again.

Your computer is not compromised unless you give them remote control. Usually they are preying on frightened people in order to get them to pay sums of money to 'fix' their computers or get control of their bank accounts.

Two days ago I got a text message supposedly about a parcel delivery and requesting me to go to a certain site and give them my ID details. I deleted and then reported them.

Hey, MacDoogle. Sounds like you have a full arsenal of gadgetry and gizmos. I think yer turnin' into a right lowland nerd.

"Remote" and all that shouldn't be something you need to learn. Point is, WHEN AND IF SOMEONE ASKS whether or not your screen on the internet screams a WARNING that your computer's been infected -- then it should fire up red flag warnings that they are almost certainly not to be trusted. It's like if some stranger on the street you'd never seen before asked for your house door key for when you're away, you would wonder what they're up to.

PozDrawSki sez: And then you would say "Piss off, ya bloody wanker".

Similar thing. You resort to that ONLY when someone is trying to con you. In normal times and if you haven't "handed them the key" this isn't an issue.

The rest of the time you should just have fun with your painting and relax.

Might be that you're trying to upload a pic in a format that's incompatible with the forum. You wouldn't be trying to upload a working file in the ArtRage format? If you export it as a .jpeg from ArtRage and then try attaching it to your post it may work then if it's a reasonable size -- what you have been posting all along with your paintings.

That's the only thing I can think of because I don't use those devices. So see if it's accessing the pic and that the pic is in jpeg or png format. . . just like your photo of yourself.

ahahahah. What I lost leaving virtual painting and therefore this Forum and Your wit and humor, dear friend!
As usual pure fun reading Your comment! I guess the Reaper is absolutely amused by You as well and appreciate Your talent and art productivity and, since She sees You so busy, involved and proficient in art, She doesn't dare to bother You. So keep going to the benefit of all of us!

Actually I used my utmostly reduced "artistic" free time mainly for drawing, either pencil or pen/ fine markers, tools I can use quickly and anywhere, and watercolors, mostly when on holidays.
I think I improved sensibly in all of these disciplines, in terms of efficiency and effectivess (thus far less frustration moments).
I also used acrylic paint few months ago to execute a reasonably large imaginary and fake window under a fake brickmade upper border as trompe-l'oeil for a friend of mine. He hanged it on a wall to simulate an outside view. I would attach it (if I can) as the sole example (not being any of the items I speak about Artrage made).

CAESAR!!!! Wow! Glad to see you're still with us, and to see you're doing Art in the commercial world. How excellent for you. You've taken your work into the next level. Alas, it also means you've moved on. I thought you were dissatisfied with the forums that they had slowed down and gotten less playful. You were like a satyr after the nymphs all migrated away. Your sources of "nourishment" disappeared.

But this reason for your disappearance is a happy one indeed.

You're starting to look a little like Gandalf from Lord of the Rings, after he fought Balrog. You've returned as Caesar the White. Anyway, your boys sure have grown up and you must be so proud. I remember when you would post about them as little kids. Very good work, dad.

Anyway, I know Mr. Ploos and I both have missed your presence here. I know Mr. Ploos is still a keen follower of Sport, and you live in that same soccer world as he does so you had much to talk about. Was fun for me to listen in.

Be well. And may your Art be joyful wherever you go with it.

Dear ATPlus, I'm really admired of Your considerable improvement and still keeping Your own unique style!
I like very much also Your deposition from the cross, although apparently still ongoing, for at least reasons:
IRONY: You provided a map to help souls finde their appropriate
ARTISTIC RENDERING: You somehow seem to approach to a certain extent El Greco sinouous and flaming style here.

Dear DAkey, the only and sole member who continuously and highest level nourished this Forum since ever is You, my friend! Gold medal for professional opinions, support, funny and original considerations.
I felt so relieved to read the names of so many old friends in her still active and in great shape!
I'm not into the commercial world as a side job indeed. I only feel somehow more confident about my outcomes level, but i still do them mostly forr fun, so plenti of pencil, pen, marker drawings, watercolors etc. when I can.
My second son instead it going along that path, I hope, and I encouraged and I'm financing him, up to my limited possibilities, with comics/digital art courses, Academy (fine art) and whatever may help him to reach the aim. The talent and growth capability seem to be reasonably ascertained as a pretty good one by his various teachers, so I hope that he will have also all the rest needed for enter the competitive world of character design, graphic novels comics etc. ... he likes so much. Unfortunately for virtual paintings he uses Photoshop only so far and I wasn't able to convince him to add some fun also with ArtRage.

Now, about me instead, I think that, sooner or later, I'll have to resume my old tablet and see if I'm still good at ArtRaging, on my usual topics at least (BTW I see the After 9 o' Clock section didn't progress, so I guess that either people are afraid to treat hot topics with enough elegance and irony or this new age where every fanatism blew up and any kind of political correctness is locally required in the various places (or more globally), make such an excercise utmost risky.
I guess there might always be someone shouting and yelling at an artwork which have not included all kind of minorities into a painting, or for having noticed some form of genderphobia, some other people pointing out to some alleged offence to women dignity on any whatsoever ground (Right! ME TOO! :o), other groups scared by any kind of nudity, whatever the artistic purpose, willing to place covering leaves and flowers even on the greatest ancient art masterpieces to "protect childer" or "public decency". ;)

MacPloos: Looking great. I definitely think these paintings are best discussed with a liberal amount of soccer talk in the mix. Good stuff, matey.

Caesar: Okay then, I have a better idea of what's been going on. Sending good thoughts to your boys, especially relative to the one whose aiming at Art. I would expect no less with your passion for it. The thing we have to take into account is that if he's going to try to get work as an 'in house' artist, he has to show them facility with the programs the employers use. Photoshop is pretty universally the industry standard. ArtRage is good for him if he's on his own or if he gets work with a company that uses it. But PS is sort of a prerequisite to digital art which is expected in that profession.

Anyway, this is really a treat, riding along with you and your family at this stage of life. I remember as my son grew into and past the college level and entered the working world and all the opportunities and choices that came to him. Truth to tell, he did not go into Art as a profession. He has followed his own path which I always encouraged. I've always had a good relationship with him and he has far exceeded me, for which I am proud and relieved for him. He found his passion. I'm sure your boys will do the same because as their father, (you) are a passionate and enthusiastic inspiration. They're lucky to have you as a role model.

Sounds like your lovely wife is doing well. Glad to hear it.

Have you retired yet? You mentioned a couple years ago that you were getting to that phase of life.

On a different topic, the fires in my area have been worse than ever. It was very close to me months ago, but it's now springing up all over and threatening many people and affecting some roads. Prayers for the people affected. It used to be that the worst thing to fear as far as natural disasters was earthquakes. I think Fire has now taken that number one slot of things we hope to never experience around our homes.


Okay, ho un'idea migliore di quello che sta succedendo. Inviare pensieri positivi ai tuoi ragazzi, in particolare rispetto a quello il cui obiettivo è l'Arte. Non mi aspetterei niente di meno con la tua passione per questo. La cosa che dobbiamo prendere in considerazione è che se sta cercando di ottenere un lavoro come artista "interno", deve mostrare loro la facilità con i programmi che usano i datori di lavoro. Photoshop è piuttosto universalmente lo standard del settore. ArtRage è buono per lui se è da solo o se lavora con un'azienda che lo utilizza. Ma la PS è una sorta di prerequisito per l'arte digitale che ci si aspetta da quella professione.

Ad ogni modo, questo è davvero un piacere, andare insieme a te e alla tua famiglia in questa fase della vita. Ricordo che mio figlio è cresciuto e ha superato il livello universitario ed è entrato nel mondo del lavoro e in tutte le opportunità e le scelte che gli sono venute. A dire il vero, non è entrato nell'arte come professione. Ha seguito il suo percorso che ho sempre incoraggiato. Ho sempre avuto un buon rapporto con lui e lui mi ha superato di gran lunga, di cui sono orgoglioso e sollevato per lui. Ha trovato la sua passione. Sono sicuro che i tuoi ragazzi faranno lo stesso perché come loro padre (tu) sei un'ispirazione appassionata ed entusiasta. Sono fortunati ad averti come modello.

Sembra che la tua adorabile moglie stia bene. Felice di sentirlo.

Ti sei già ritirato? Hai menzionato un paio di anni fa che stavi arrivando a quella fase della vita.

Su un argomento diverso, gli incendi nella mia zona sono stati peggiori che mai. Mi è stato molto vicino mesi fa, ma ora sta spuntando dappertutto, minacciando molte persone e colpendo alcune strade. Preghiere per le persone colpite. In passato la cosa peggiore da temere per i disastri naturali erano i terremoti. Penso che Fire abbia preso quella slot numero uno di cose che speriamo di non sperimentare mai nelle nostre case.

Dear DAkey with our dear venerable friend permission, I would thank You for Your affectionate words and I'm glad You got so proud of You son, but I feel Your kind expressions about me actually fit You much more and You certainly was and still are an incredible kind of father, someone able to stimulate any kind of passion and form of intelligence.
As for my retirement I'm still at least three years away, after some change in laws thereabout, but it's not a problem, also because I hope that then, depending on my choiche, they would offer me some good reasons (bucks) to get rid of me as soon as they can ahahahah.

My second son was never pushed by me into art and he's almost totally different as for style, subjects etc. not at all like Giambattista Tiepolo son who became a good and original enough artist, but still walking quite along his father's path after years of cooperation.

Finally we,ve been hearing about the terrible fires in California with empathy, dreariness and great concern for people over there with an additional trepidation due to the fact that .... You know what? our first son Emanuele is flying to Los Angeles to stay ten days with a friend of him studying there. Holliwood area if I understood it well.

11-07-2019, 06:54 AM
Caesar, your private message box is full. I tried sending it that way. But here we are.

MacPloos, please allow this side indulgence.

Well, just carry on with whatever you've been doing. I remember the moment with my son where I chose to take a sort of role of remote mentor. I think that was the best gift to him I could offer at that point of his life. Showing interest in his "performance" made him feel worthy and loved and emotionally supported and all that where having a strong self-image was the thing. Serendipitous to that, he also very early on in middle school found a very focused girl where they created their own positive vision together, and stayed together -- contrary to modern expectations about waiting till late 20s and so on. Now they're married and I have a couple of grand kids. Alas, they're thousands of miles away. But they're doing well and happy. That's all theirs and I offer a hearty round of applause to them.

I'm sure your boys are well aimed for life via their dad's joie de vivre and clarity of direction.

Well, hope all will remain good for you all. May your soccer team do well -- until it has to play against Eighty's team! Let the games begin!!!

I think the painting looks good, MacPloos! Got all the facial parts in the right place so I have a good idea what he looks like. Good proportions and all.

PozDrawSki sez: That's right. He's got a good arch to his eyebrows, his mustache and the look on his face is like the Arc de Triumph. Can't tell from your painting if any of his other arches have fallen though. Still, the good arch bishop likely has all his arches in good trim, according to Roman standards for arches.

Yeah, those bicycle chaps really get going. Saw a documentary on the science behind the British team some years back. Really hammering out every detail of speed. Raised the bar did the Brits.

Speaking of racing, somebody out here is killing off the racing horses at the track. I think the horse deaths this year was something like 34. No way it can't be accidental. I think they want the land and need to get out of a contract or something. Feels very Godfather suspicious. Contrary to the Brits looking for speed, out here it looks like they're looking for it to stop. Bloody hell.

Plus we have more fires. There's also no way this can all be the high tension power lines acting up all at once all over. It's a bit chaotic out here of late. So if you can finally figure out how to send us the archbishop it might help. Couldn't hurt.

Just to remove some of Your excessively manichean approach to what religious conscious ages left to us, since no late Middle Age, Humanism; Renaissance, French Elightment, as well as British civilization and empire would have been possible withouth the collateral "damages" of abbeys and churches to ferry Christian principles as well as ancient Greek-Roman and Arabian domination collected and developed culture across dark ages.
Do You see any other place where individual human rights, an incredibly rich and diverse art and architecture as well as modern science could have developped continuously all over more than a millennium in the absence of a real integration of all these cultural roots together with local European ones?
Most of Europe would still be illiterate and restrained to just some fine tribal jewellery and pottery as art ... let it go with science and technology.
As for Your Parliament and P.M. I think Bansky expressed all in his painting and You are certainly mixing up Hitchcock suspance to comedy and little kids behaviour (not even Your Queen was able to introduce some old British political wisdom, getting too old?).
In any case, for Your solace, in Italy we are still in the forefront of political dementia inventions in this period! ;)

It's going to be great! You really grasped perfectly his face and all the rest!
So now rest for a while, since You got tired, I understand, and go on with it. I foresee an outcome among Your best ones ever and in general.

I think the painting looks good, MacPloos! Got all the facial parts in the right place so I have a good idea what he looks like. Good proportions and all.
PozDrawSki sez: That's right. He's got a good arch to his eyebrows, his mustache and the look on his face is like the Arc de Triumph. Can't tell from your painting if any of his other arches have fallen though. Still, the good arch bishop likely has all his arches in good trim, according to Roman standards for arches.

Hi. Yeah confused. Ok. So don’t now. What will Show. Ok. CIAO. PLOOS

Hey there MacDoogle, just want to mention that I had to go in and edit the formatting in your post regarding the quoted bits. They had gotten clipped and looked unclear. I changed nothing of what you quoted or that you said. Just cleaned it up a bit is all.

The drawing you managed to post very successfully looks great. Also looks like it's right up your alley -- nice period costumes and lots going on.

PozDrawSki sez: Going all Elizabethan on us, stout-hearted artist that ye are.

So paint on your tights and Go Man GO!!!!!!!!

Yeah, ol' Henry VIII was known for his particular style of speed dating. Things get complicated when romance and siring offspring is all tangled up with world and local politics. Heavy is the head that wears the crown. . .

PozDrawSki sez: . . .and vacant is the neck that lost said head.

So, whether you did this drawing recently or long ago, it seems like it's wanting for some paint. Ye somehow managed to upload this here drawing. I think you are on the cusp of forum mastery!

Go man Go!!!!!

Well, I'm really eager to see how You'll paint all that crowned and aristoocratic croud, my friend.
It looks like that Henry VIII invented the anglican version of the catholic church not on theological ground, but just to speed up his divorces and remove heads chopping of wives, bishops (Thomas Moore) etc from royal sins, since he could absolve himself then .... not an innovative christian interpretation, just the national version, like in China today.

Hi. O Caesar. Sorry as i dont think.I ever painted it to show.I might. Have tried a few. Dabs just odd bits. Prehap's I should. Have a bash at it later but still hav'nt finished. The Arcbishop when I can find him in my files. Plus. Sophia Loren who refuses to show herselve. As all I get is. Invalad ??? But I will blunder on regardless as you. Can see. We are. In a crisis.

Sorry the shoulder is giving you fits. Hang in there MacPloos!

PozDrawSki sez: When they say "Put your shoulder into it". . . I think they were talking about moving some heavy weight, not your painting. I say, send in THE MOUSE! <cheering from the crowd "MOUSE - MOUSE - MOUSE. . ." More cheering!> . . . or use your stylus. . . whatever gets the marks made.

GO MAN GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

or, if you prefer: Watteau, fellow!

Are you alright then? Riding fox hunts with the swells? Tallye ho-ing about the countryside? It's a right job getting into yer jodhpurs without some scented oils, is it?

PozDrawSki sez: Oh aye, there's a reason them stiffs got dressers. Could never manage all them trousers without a shoe horn. Just grab yer kilts an' be done with it. . .

MacPloos!!!! What's that there Romanesque looking laddie doing down the pitch, eh? He seems to be muttering something. Can ye make it out?

PozDrawSki sez: Sounds like "Educam illud!". . . Ach! Me III years of Latin class finally pays off! It tells me he's shouting:

Well, I'm relieved to know that with my helmet I wouldn't lose my hair by aging!
Dear McPloos, if we succeed to fix the right midefirlder and side-defender on January and have fully absorbed our new coach's lessons and schemes by February-March, we may seriously believe to Juve eventually and finally greab the Big-Eared Cup this year. Obviously, as You know, no matter how good You are and planning is, it's also a matter of luck in some specific episodes and cases ...

Your last one remeinds me of someone we know ... ehehehe

Dear D Akey, what a perfect latinist You still are! I guess You may also work as a distinguisehd lawyer now ....:o

Wait just a cotton, pickin' minute. . . You finally did manage a glimpse of Sophia Lauren! And there's proof incontrovertible.

Pozdrawski sez: Ship shape and Bristol fashion, she got what's coming to her. She's been key-holed, I mean keel-hauled for being AWOL from shipboard so often. . . But ol' MacDoogle, he's a quick study with the stylus.

Go man go!!!!

Oh, and Caesar, thought it a help to cover up that grey -- emphatically. You're welcome, mate. The girls will be fawning in no time as they love a man in uniform I hear.
