How do we download our own images?

A recent announcement stated that the Gallery is going to be shutdown.

How do we download our images before they're lost?

Re: Kingston Lacy details

I believe that the significance of the key in the 3rd image is that it's the key to Corfe Castle. The holder held the castle when it was besieged by Parliamentarian troops during the English Civil...

Re: Oly 50-200 ED lens hood

If you're absolutely stuck, try this:

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro

I suspect that a silicone treatment is applied during the manufacture of lenses. Silicone treated surfaces have a characteristic slippery 'feel'. Also, water droplets bead off a new lens is a way...

Re: Scotland - recommendation about itinerary

I'm just wondering what Scotland would offer over Sweden?

Mountains and lochs/lakes: I would think that Sweden is at least as well endowed as Scotland.

Re: Windows 10

I use my W10 machine about a couple times a month, and then only to run Photoshop. There are image processing tools for Linux, but whilst good, they're not yet as competent as PS.

In the meantime I'll see how to de-register it on my machine.
