If someone will help me find a shareware application that'll mutate
.JPGs into .GIFs and so on, I'll put notes to that effect in the
Mini-FAQ, I need to get that done soon, don't I? (Off-list is fine!)
Right now I don't even have the capability to take a 64k .jpg from
Robin's digital camera & crop it down to just show part of the photo,
there are times I'd look for a Win 3.x retailware app (I see
applications in local swap meets etc. often enough) but I don't know
what to look for!
And it's nice to have a shareware/freeware app listed in the FAQ,
perhaps one of us US folks with "unlimited" bandwidth could get set up
and crunch things for those who don't have $300 photo software (If I got
around to installing my scanner or re-installing the Kodak camera
software, maybe I DO have software here, too. Got the kitchen
wheelchair-accessible for Robin, maybe now I can get some computer work
done without being run over!)
I'd do it but I'd be awful SLOW at crunching files for people. Could
have someone throw the files into a web page, optimized for quick
access, be a good solution here?
