New member saying hello

Postby (Yuanjia) » Thu Sep 13, 2018 3:23 pm

Hi, I'm new to the forum and have acquired my first ever Rickenbacker

I've been a fan of Rickenbacker for ages and I thought I'd join the forums and show off my new gear

I got a Rickenbacker 650S Sierra from 1993 (which is the year I was born) and am in love with it

Pleased to be a part of the community here and I look forward to using the forum

That's quite a shame. They appear for me when I look at this thread!
I'm just uploading from Google photos, maybe it's my privacy settings?

Kyle, just directly attach the files to your post using the Upload attachment button below the text box when you make a new post. The files must be no larger than 1280x1280 pixels and IIRC less than 500Kb.

Third time lucky!


Thanks JPS
I could only get two of the images to be 1280x1280,
A free converter wouldn't make the other two less than 1280 high for some reason.
I'm sure there's something I'm not getting.

Kyle. are you on a Mac or do you have Photoshop, particularly the LE version of Photoshop. They both make it easy to get high quality resized photo files. A program built-in to the Apple system is Preview which can resize the files if you do not have PS.
