ID:	72454 Now I can focus on finishing off the board. No idea how this is happening but once again the pictures are appearing upside down on the post. Please can someone give me some advice on why this is happening and what to do to fix this problem. The pictures are right side up on my end.

    That looks great Drew! Even if it is upside down!

    Hi,

    And I do mean, "Hi" as in, on-the-ceiling.

    I really like the smooth, clean look of the chess pieces; they are just begging to be handled.

    Enjoy,

    Until you find out differently, perhaps you could rotate the pictures upside down on your PC before downloading them to the FWW site.

    Nice work on the chess set!

    No comment on your picture uploading abilities

    But those chess pieces really came out very nice.

    Tried that Al but it still came out upside down. Damn frustrating to say the least.

    This is a Christmas gift for my boys. They live together and are heading off to school in Edmonton next year so this is just something to give them to remind them of home.

    I bet it becomes a family heirloom. You may have to make another so each will have one set to pass on. Very nice work.
