Just a little tip on resizing images:

You may or may not have heard the phrase "aspect ratio."  Simply stated, the aspect ratio of an image is its displayed width divided by its height, usually separated by a colon or the letter x;  e.g. 4:3 or 1024 x 768.  Many people fail to consider the aspect ratio of an image when they resize it for the Web.  As a result, people in the images wind up looking like aliens; nine feet tall and pencil thin, or very short and thick.  Most graphics applications include an option for maintaining the aspect ratio of the original when resizing an image.  If you have a large graphic, up in the 2048 x 1536 range, and you want to shrink it down so it's viewable without scroll bars, make sure that option is checked.  Then, if you set the width to 640, the height will automatically scale down to 480.  This will remove the guesswork and prevent you from posting a distorted photo.  (If your graphics editor does not include such an option, try to make sure you reduce both the height and the width by the same ratio; if you cut the height in half, do the same with the width.)

Incidentally - 640 x 480 is a good size for posting on the Web.  Most browser displays these days are 1024 x 768 or larger, so this size will display clearly without introducing scroll bars.

Hi, I was the only media representative at the June 3rd concert in Orlando and did get a few usable photos that I'd be happy to share here if I understood how to do it?

To be able to use photos of CW in graphics, do you have to "snag" it from DVD or TV or can any of their photos from their programs or website be used?
