    Little One Room Apartment

    I finished this little one room apartment for my bird friends today. The top is blood wood and the bottom is mulberry taken from my firewood pile. This is the hardest forum to size pictures to post of any forum I visit. I just don't get it.

    Hi,

    That has to be the sexiest one-room apartment I have ever seen or heard of.

    I wonder if it has a five-canary sound system?

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Very well done Paul!
    Great contrast with the Bloodwood and Mulberry.

    Great little apartment, Paul. How big is it?

    On the photo resizing, what program are you using to reduce their size? Ill bet one of us can give you some tips to make it easier to have a larger image, and still keep it within the 150 KB file size limit. (Our size limits are actually bigger than several other forums I visit.)

    very cool! When I can get all the spring "stuff" done and whatever's undone, I want to make a couple of those. I really like the one's Curt and others are doing on pedestals, which should provide some finial practice.
    Thx for posting.

    ps - I just adjust my photo editor to export at pixels and resize the larger side to 800 (and keep relationship) and it works. I can get a file under 150k that still violates the 800 x 6oo rule, so I just opt to do that 1st. Good luck

    Thanks for comments. The birdhouse is about 6" tall and 3 1/2 across. It is smaller than I normally make, maybe a Thrush will rent it.

    I use Photoscape to re-size. I size the larger size (keep relationship) and on these pictures in the thread I had do go sown to 380. I do some editing on my photos, like cropping, adjusting balance, contrast. Does this impact the total pixels?
