I gotta pull my finger out and post some pics...how do you resize images for posting? I'm not very good with comps and post image processing.
Thanks Pete for the compliments & also the hint with the beaks. We also have Bower Birds hanging around & it is difficult telling the juveniles from the females, with the black male occasionally appearing.

I just use Olympus Viewer 2 for editing (jpg or raw) & resizing. It is best to sharpen the resized photo for web viewing too & usually I resize them to 900 X 675, but 800 X 600 is fine too & then I save as Standard quality to keep the file size down & it usually looks OK & fits the uploading criteria.

Here is a print screen of it.

I hope the print screen shows enough to help (after you click on the thumbnail & viewed in full screen).

WOW Ross, the reds are extraordinary, glad I came back for another look and finally learnt what NF is, thanks!

The E-M5 is a doozie alright.

Ross, I use Olympus View2 also in the same way you do although rarely for RAW. It has a brilliant exif reader for internal files.

With regard to our recent exchange on exif readers, I uninstalled GC as it is too intrusive doing all manner of unauthorised actions. I am waiting to see my tech on the weekend to sort out this "ActiveX" thingy so that I can give that other App starting with "K", whose name I've already forgotten - such as it is without a functional memory.
