Tricky ... but this one has a bit of an air about it! Hoping it hasn't cropped up before. :)

Okay, BLAH - I have tried this several times, never usually have trouble, but the supposed-procedure to post a pic isn't working. Gah. Here is where you can find it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/weetstraw/ ... /lightbox/

Nope, can't see it on my computer. And I can't find the image anywhere other than that Flickr account. Somebody with more tech know-how...help?

"Talk about having to backdoor something" sounds like a wildly inappropriate caption for another cheesy cover ... !! :p

I picked this one because that horrified monochromatic bride just seemed priceless to me.

THANK YOU Misfit!!

You are welcome ;)

Now about the backdooring. I opened MS Onenote and took a screen clipping of the cover. Saved it and put it here as an attachment. Opened the attachment and voila! I then had a URL from HFO that would work to do the image thingy in the thread.

Anyone's eyes glazing over now? :D :p

Why didn't I think of screen capping it? My brain just isn't working lately. I'll have the new thread up soon.

It may just be my computer but I can't see any image! Could we repost as a new thread so the cover is more visible? Pretty please, Misfit!
