    I took some photos this week at Lotusland and was able to get shots of the three mature specimens as well as some cones and an off shoot which is about 1' tall.

    How did you guess?

    It seems every photo I attempt to send, after a VERY long upload wait, comes back as "image too large". I know you recommended a photo site that may fix this, but I hesitate to ask my wife to do MY homework for me after she comes home from a day of teaching computer lab. I am sure that it will get worked out eventually, in the mean time, my photo library continues to grow...

    I'll increase the photo size limits. Give me 5 minutes.

    Daniel,

    You are most kind.

    I will send a few pics your way and see how it works. By the way, my wife just got home and is in the process of setting up a web site for a quilting class she is taking. She is most interested in this process of photo uploading for her site, so maybe I will get her input without having to ask...

    Still not working? I increased the size to 8MB - you must have one heck of a camera!

    Arrrrgh.....!
    This is "The Wife" (aka Mary). I am just looked at the 5 attachments that Guy just tried to send and they were all over 1MB each (one of them was 2MB). Give me a bit of time (up to a year) to see if I can get you something smaller. Wish me luck!

    It shouldn't be a problem at 1-2MB now, but I'll have to check with a larger file from home.

    All these are the same pix as last upload, but all at dimensions of 640x480 and totals a whopping 75K. This is obviously faster....but what about the lack of pixel clarity?

    Too compressed now - I usually like one dimension to be 800 pixels long, and saved at max JPG quality. A lot of potential there from what I can see, though!

    These three male Encephalartos woodii are located at Lotusland, in Montecito (Santa Barbara), California, United States. They are rare in the sense that there are no known female examples and therefore they can only reproduce through off shoots or cloning. Thank you for your interest.
