I wish to save somebodies profile pic as a jpg, preferably larger than the one shown, in order to do a suprise tribute hub to them. Dont worry, they would appreciate it, and it wont be too sickly.
I know that there is a way because somebody was on here upset that somebody had used their profile pic in their hub. Although that was a negative experience.
I don't think it can be done Ryan, like thranax said really easy sizing down but the other way the quailty turns out really bad, good luck though.
If it cant be sized up, can it be saved in the same size as shown? That would be very small, but better than nowt!
Yes it can and if you save it as jpeg you can improve the quality of the image with a few tweaks if you are on Vista, just load the pic up and click on "fix" then mess about with the settings, contrast etc.
Oh I have worked it out mate, nice one! I was pressing save target instead of save picture.
You have a new Manchester City supporting friend HealthTip:
Lonely housewife, get all over that one fella
Colebabie just said it was fake.... what a let down! Why do you think I was trying to get a big picture? Do you really think that I was going to write a bleedin poem? Well.... I suppose that I have to write a tribute poem to somebody now. I might do one in memory of BadCo and CabinGirl..... as a memorial!
Damn I am so gutted now, I thought I had found my true love, even saw us watching old City matches, both in our City tops, life is indeed cruel.
Funny thing you mention BadCo Ryan, I still recall the day I got a message from a newbie asking advice about writing a hub about Zidane, and I told him to go for it.
When I read that newbies hub I was amazed at how much better it was than my George Best hub and even to this day it is my fav hub of that newbie. That newbie has come a long way, jeeez I have watched his progress with interest because of that Zidane hub, someone once said to me stay gold, I like that saying a lot, stay gold Ryan !
Yeah I remember it well mate, I blogged that hub today.... and was thinking about it then. BadCo had a great run on here mate, brought a lot of people a lot of pleasure.... so I think Im going to do a hub on him! You have entered a new era now, I think that HealthTip can be one of several good niche accounts for you. I know you dont like talking money, but go and monopolise them.... and then maybe BadCo come back and tell us all about it with a few poems
I pretty much run the show on Serial Killers and 'Soccer' here now, they dont make me much, but I have shown myself how to keep my visitors on my hubs. If you find a serial killer hub of mine, or a football hub, its very rare for any of the 'related hubs' to be anybody other than mine. Now that doesnt mean much for my adsense, but if you monopolise hubs on heart conditions.... thats big business!
In fact, you could bag yourself a bird with tits just like the ones we saw a few minutes ago with your new porsche Im saying this as somebody who wont be around on the forum much longer, just the way certain people want it to be I think, so go and get them mate!
I'm pretty sure its a fake Ryan, look at it, you can kinda tell around the face. Now I'm looking on the website to see if that frame is there. I don't want to be accusing this poor woman of something that isn't true!
Well if it is fake then she should be ashamed, if it is real then she should feel very proud. There is not 'poor woman' in the equation but I do get your point. It doesnt have to be from that site either, could quite as easily be photoshop... maybe I should ask her to send me a few 'verification shots' goodness... im sorry.... im not sure why im being such a perve today.
Well the lovely Cole isnt fake so who cares
I just looked at it too and yea it did look kind of fake from the coloring on the face and the fact that the face is a lot blurrier than the rest of the body. But of course Like you I don't want to accuse her if it is a real pic.
Don't know if you got the answer you were looking for yet but if not; right click on the pic, click view image, it should pop out and then save it.
You can use photoshop to change the size if you need to but sometimes, depending on the original quality of the pick, upscales don't turn out that well.
O.K it is possible you have to save the picture by the obvious right click. Then put it through the process of adjustment, for example I just tried with yours it was able to be brought up to 5 times the size then itstarted pixelating, interestingly I could see an exact face. and the buildings were totally diff than when I looked at your avator usually, it was an interestring excercise you will need to adjust colour contrast etc, and use filters to clean up the pixels. As a graphic artist I know that a PNG shot will stay pretty much O.K but these are JPEG and do break up alot quicker than a PNG
Images scale down nicely..they don't scale up. Just a hint to keep in mind.
Something like this would be fine:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Tips-for-Bad-Gi … tch-Please
Sure we all remember the aggro caused when that picture was stolen dont we?
Although I want to use my pic, of somebody else, for purely pleasant reasons....
If you go to a persons profile and right click on their image and do "View Image" the image is 177px square, rather than the 100px square you see in the forum.
Not all that big, but better than nothing.
You can use image editing sofware, such as Photoshop to interpolate the picture. This will generate more pixels within the image thus increasing the size of the picture.
But it won't work. You are already dealing with a postage stamp sized image to start with, and the information it contains will not be of sufficient quality to make even interpolation worth your time.
You may as well do a hub on BadCo my friend, Eric G has already fed off the name as have others. To be honest I find it both amusing and in a way flattering that BadCompany and Cabin Girl are still even mentioned on the site.
The amusing thing is how some people actually hated them, how some people actually thought they knew them but they didn't not really. BadCo the bad boy with a drink problem and mental problems, you deff have some good material there and hell if you want a better pic drop me your email address and I will post you a few good pics.
BadCo will never return, you killed him !
Did I really kill him? Final nail in the coffin probably.... but the first ones went in before I even understood hubpages. I wasn't going to make it a negative poem, a tribute normally only considers positives.... You sound a bit aggrieved to be honest mate. I may have killed BadCo, but I certainly did nothing to kill BadCompany99. One had 3 hubs and one had 49. If it would offend you then I wont do it, but most deleted hubbers have tributes. GoldenToad has tributes, and I beat hes still around on another login. If it makes you feel better I will take all ads off of it. It isn't going to be a tribute to BadCo, its going to be a tribute to BadCompany99, and its not pictures of your dating photo that I will need..... googling 'Johnny Depp' will suffice
Ryan you didn't kill BadCo but that thread did just watching the replies from stupid wankers that know bugger all about me. Truth is we are a lot alike in that we speak our mind, truth is sometimes you really piss me off but in a good way because you speak your mind and I like that.
Like your thread about hubs, like forget it mate you have a hell of a lot going for you. As i have already told you in 6 months from now your serial killer hubs will be paying you really nice, add to them, build them up more ok.
And you will never leave the forums as nor will I, reason being the site needs your voice even if at times you are a real prick, honesty between mates ok and I think you can accept me saying it. You have a talent mate so don't waste it, I have been down that road and now I am going to make money on here.
Re your earlier thread, regards Hubpages helping people to write, mate trust me you can either write or you cant. I laugh aloud at some threads were hubbers complain about writers block, tis not writers block, they just cant write and no amount of training can make a shitty writer good.
You know what Ryan, I kinda miss the guy that wrote that Zidane hub, he was so eager, these days you sound pissed off but hey go for the BadCo Hub, one day that alter-ego will die but you deff have my permission to write it flaws and all !
Trust me mate, I want that passion back too. I'm doing something at the moment which is exciting me a lot.... so maybe that will help me to regain my spark. In a way BadCo (can I even call you that?) you are the same.... can feel a little bit of lost spark from you too. Maybe its the winter blues, were on the wrong side of that pond mate!
Lol for some reason people still call me Badco in comments to my hubs so no probs there. In a way I regret killing BadCo off due to a few tossers slagging me off. That is what I admire about you, you are one stubborn git, a true Brit lol and I like that even though you support a shitty team.
Go for it mate, do a BadCo tribute, who knows he and his Cabin Girl may return to give it the thumbs up, like you I no longer give a damn what people think, as the lovely Cabin Girl once said " I Am Who I Am "
Most people would love to see those two re-appear. But if you are going to do it, then do it in style. Disappear completely from the site for a while, wait for everybody to get completely bored on the forum (and that doesnt mean deleting HealthTips, just means not having anything showing in your hubtivity) and then spring it onto everybody by suprise. But enough with the shitty team stuff ya bastard! I seem to remember you lot in this division! Big game on Monday night against Leeds, I've got myself a ticket, 4000 Norwich fans at Elland road on a Monday night..... we might be shit on the pitch, but you cant say were shit off the pitch buddy!
Lol how to piss Ryan off mention Norwich and not hubpages oh yesss his achilles heel. Omg Elland Road, jeez I went there once many years ago, jeeez I was lucky to get back to Belfast alive. Ok word to the wise if you are from Leeds or support the buggers dont add me and stay away from me, jeeez Ryan it was nice knowing you.
Ohhhhh I so recall us in that division, 90 mins gone in the playoffs and 2-0 down to Gillingham, 92 mins Dickov scores 2-1 and just as its almost fulltime we score 2-2.
Penalty shoot off and City win, I am in tears, omg I will never forget that day, still the yanks dont get it, stupid sodding baseball, roll on the World Cup !
World Cup? Who are you supporting in the World Cup?
I tell you what mate, Northern Ireland have a great manager, need to keep hold of Worthy.... best manager Norwich have had since Martin O'Neill graced the dugout for 6 months.
I am going to Elland Road mate, with my colours firmly hidden until im in the ground. Im getting their early, and Im leaving early too.... dont worry I know exactly what Leeds fans are like!
I am supporting England all the way mate, I am not like most Scots fans I support the UK, I am proud to be British
Never really got all that either mate to be honest. I am an England fan first and foremost, but I support Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales whenever they play teams outside of the UK. I also support Ireland against any non-UK team too. Everybody else I couldnt give a shit about, but the main thing is that whoever wins a World Cup has won it by playing some good football. The best team won the European Championships, and if Spain play like that again in the summer then they deserve to win it. I dont think I could handle a Germany win though, they are exempt from my impartial and logical thoughts!
I cant wait although I really wish the Argies had have been beat last night, of all the teams I gotta admit I hate Argentina for more reasons that that cheating little fat gits hand of god !
Yeah forgot about those bastards. Been learning about '66.... wrote a hub about it - in fact, im sure there must be a little passion on that one they were dirty bastards back then as well in the quarter finals. The thing is, they are always gonna be a strong team. I bet the USA will suprise a few people as well, to be honest I think they are under rated so Im not going to begrudge them that... its not like they are going to win it. And we would still turn them over.
Damn right, Sir Alf was right they were animals and plus the buggers invaded our land. Roll on the World Cup because England are gonna win the trophy this time, jeeeez if the sodding Spanish divers can win a trophy then England can.
Britain rules the World
Fucking hell... look at the time. Goes quickly when you enjoy a thread. Im off to bed.... and if your working tomorrow BadCo then I suggest you think about heading in that direction too
I know you sodding tosser keeping me up you wanker, I am off to bed but hell that was a good chat, yer still a tosser at times though, but bugger it you have made me realise one thing !
The Captain is going to return for you and the love of his life, Janetta
Thats all good, Im a self-proclaimed tosser.... the thing is I know it. Get planning the BadCo return, I will back it wholeheartedly. Even when I started a thread ripping into you, I was still defending you against certain posters, and the same will always be the case. A thread dissaproving of a single action turned into a witch hunt, really never intended for that to happen though BadCo.... in fact really regretted starting the thread. I didnt regret what I actually said, but I do regret what it encouraged some other people to say. I will be the first to welcome him back.
Hey HealthTip I had to say "Stay Gold" I know that line from The Outsiders one of my favorite movies!
Oh and Ryan...who is the hub about?
There wasnt one! I wanted to get a bigger picture of a sexy hubber, and was disguising that by stating that I wanted to write a poetic tribute about a mystery hubber. Now I realised that the pic was fake, and feel guilty about my dishonesty, so Im going to do a tribute to BadCompany99 with my first ever hubpages poem. Talking about sexy, your looking rather sultry in your new pic Crazdwriter! Im getting jealous of all these new pics, time for me to have a hunt and change mine I think!!
You are always gold Crazdwriter and why you have to ask people on here whether to remain on here is beyond me. You are a lovely person, you don't need to ask are people missing you, you are a fun person, stay confident ok !
I try to stay confident but dealing with low self-esttem and being more pesstimist than optimistic...it's not easy to stay confidence. I am actually looking towards candle magic to help give me a boost. yes I am into magic
You are an accepted and well liked hub member my friend, plus you are a stunner, so in those famous words stay golden !
YOU stay gold as well HealthTip don't let ppl run you off either. Be yourself and screw the others You know you are loved here too.
Didnt look like that when I took 3 days off solid abuse !
It was a week ago, there were about 3 threads going all running BadCo down so I said bugger it and deleted both BadCo and CabinGirl and said let boredom reign on the Forums !
Ah the week I left the forums so I could do some serious thinking and writing. Oh HealthTip I'm sorry dude. those ppl should be ashamed of themselves!
Nahhhhhhhhhhh I am glad it happened because I now see what wankers have used BadCo as a form of amusement and who was actually a real friend. Too be honest most were just fake friends who I havent since heard from and can I just say thank you to that bunch of fake assholes, you know who you are !
Crazdwriter, HealthTips, do you have blogs?
I really want to stick a few blog links in my own blog. Nothing needed in return, its just an empty box at the moment. Free backlinks if you do!
Nope i haven't set up a blog for myself yet. I am going to so I can promote my writing but for now I want to wait until I get my writing a bit more done, story wise, and have it proofread more. Something I learned at the conference but nothing now sorry
I'm not a fake asshole I swear! When I make friends I aim to keep them.
You see, I am an arsehole, but im not fake.... so I cant be too bad!
I can total be a b!tch but ppl still love me...don't know why lmao
Because you are both real, I may be banned after tonight but to be honest I don't give a shit, Ryan if you do that hub make the Captain proud because I have a feeling he's going to return with all guns blazing !
you bring him back again, I will knock you out! lol
Ok, give me until the end of next week mate. Im a busy boy this weekend, and monday night of course, I will send you an email when its published. Hows that?
I hope you don't get banned. You shouldn't be banned if you are then that's just stupid.
Cant see yer lips in yer pic Darkside but if I could I wud say kiss my ass and go read some article and do an essay on it. You are without a doubt a great but boring essay writer but a creatitive writer with flair, never Darkside, not in a million years, watch BadCompany return and see how writing is an Art
There is a time and a place for everything. And if you want a pissing match then can I mention that my creative writing has an outlet, being published in print magazines with a real audience.
Your biggest problem is that your own words make you look foolish.
Your biggest problem is you actually believe you are creative, you know not the meaning my friend your hubs are nothing but compilations of facts and your standing on hubs is nothing but ass licking of hubpages staff. You have not one one bit of creative writing within you !
I reckon everyone is creative ta some extent. But lets face it writers aren't known as the wealthiest bunch.
Bein published doesn't necessarily mean anyone is readin it. Just means someone has given ya some dosh for your work. They pay for almost anything to fill the mags.
Bit like those jingle writers, give me comedy over a pile of useless info.
Just my lean on it. Off to drive my Truck. Juggernauts get more than writers, so aren't about to chuck my 50 Hour a week job. Haven't written a single Hub. Still working on the first. Not too many of us'll ever be Shakespeare, but Healhtips, you probably could pull it off.
Hi Darkside, just replied to your comments on my facebook status hub..... given you a little backlink
Wud also love to see you in Belfast doing that to my face, but hey <snipped personal attack> !
I know, I didnt mean you, trust me the fake assholes know who they are, like ones who email you then stop. Ones that used to have a drink problem then vanish, ones that laugh on the forum with you then vanish.
Fake assholes !
ryan, I just did two tributes to some of my faves. You can see their avatars on them. I just right clicked on them on their profile and saved as**** on my hard drive. Only one was fuzzy and in no time I corrected it.
Darkside! Which magazines? I am thinking of writing some short stories and trying to get them published in magazines, especially one of my favorites Alfred Hitchcock Mystary Magazine
Not sure where you are but check out the newsstands and while your favourites, and the likes of say Readers Digest and Asimov and others are big sellers, check out the smaller titles. Read the fine print too. And read a few issues if you're unfamiliar with them to get a feel for the style.
In Australia there's Take 5, That's Life... mens magazines such as The Picture, People, Ralph, FHM. Brand new magazines can be rich pickings if you can get in early and get to know the editor. But it does take research.
I will have to check out reader's Digest though do ppl still buy that one? lmao It's been around for years I found a few that my parents have from I tihnk the '60s or '70s lol
I will definitely do some research on the magazines...I would love to see one of my stories in print...even if it is just once lol. I do have poems published but that is from poetry.com now turned lulu.com or something totally STUPID like that haha and yea poetry ain't my thing!
The internet is great for factual content. Educational pieces and stuff heavy on information. Which Art/BadCo/Healthtip/et al would agree with 50% of the time.
Creative writing and poetry doesn't monetize well online. Because it's difficult to get search engine placement. And people are looking for information when they're doing a search. If someone stumbles on a poem it could very well be that they're search for "how to get poetry published".
And if someone does like your poem the chances that they'll want to click on a link for shampoo because the poem talks about 'beautiful shining hair' is very slim.
Acting the goat in a forum is apparently all the rage, but that too doesn't monetize well either.
Having the fruits of your creative talents published in a magazine and see your name is a thrill. Getting paid for it is even better. I'm not sure if poetry magazines pay well or even pay at all. Poetry is not my thing.
I like that click on shampoo because your poem talks about shiny hair. that is too funny. And I am like you...my poems stink I can't rhyme to save my life and yea...lol
but I will definitely do what you say and research it and work on a short story or stories I should say and see if I can get them published in some magazines.
And yes getting paid for your writing is WAY better lol but for now I would just be thrilled to see my name and story in print and tell my family and friends about it...they all wanted to buy the poetry book my first poem was published in but yea I didn't tell them about it because I didn't want them to have a poem of mine...I want them to have a fiction story from me.
I agree but trust me I have other avenues in which I make money online, poetry deff isn't your thing my friend, you haven't the passion for it and as for acting the goat on the forums. Do you own hubpages because sometimes I think you actually think you do and that you speak for every member, trust me you dont and I think you will see in the coming months the tide is changing, dont get too cocky oh dark one !
There must be an echo in here, because I swear I already said that poetry isn't my thing.
OMG, poetry isn't my thing! The tide is changing! BadCo and his posse of imaginary friends are going to ride into HubTown and try and scare away one of the members who make an effort to genuinely help people and isn't here to be a dancing monkey boy!
Lol that made me laugh, BadCo is gone I am starting to make progress with my Health Hubs but hell now and then you need some promotion ya know, you bite, I got it, few more fans, few more reads, tis a game, I thank you and bid you goodnight
DS - You really do have sexy eyes, night hotstuff x
Lets have a closer look at that shall we...
A little closer...
For bringing up the continued hypocrisy I guess I shall be rewarded with being told that I'm a inferior writer... I lack creativity... that you can't wait to meet up with me in Belfast... Blah blah blah.
As much as it rankles you to have your own words used against you, you should look at every time you've told the world that you're going, that you've gone, that you're this and you're that, but keep repeating the same behaviour ad nauseum.
Is it too much to expect that you can have a secondary account that's not an attention seeking sockpuppet?
Maybe HP HQ can make a sub-forum just for you, your imaginary friends and your adoring fans. They could even make you the moderator of said sub-forum. And keep all that pulsating popularity in the one easy to find location.
Plus I also noticed you reposting a 5 month old post of mine last week, do you keep a file on your pc called BadCo, you are way sadder than I thought !
Come on you too please don't start fighting guys...please?
Might have to...I'm feeling like sh!t right now and so not in the mood for ppl fighting. I want to be around civil ppl right now to help me feel better. This is why i odn't drink a lot...I had one of my husband's beers and I feel horrible.
and I thought you were going to bed?
Lol hes off hunting his best BadCo quotes, kinda sad really
Not fighting my friend, just our ever popular Aussie boy popping up with crap from his files he keeps on his laptop, we have a life, he has files on all hub members comments, really sad if you ask me !
There's a search up in the top right hand corner. It's not hard to find or use. Or do I have to write a hub about it?
So what was I doing 3 weeks ago then, do write a hub I enjoy all these worthless threads about me. Fact remains my friend you will always be boring, you know I added something to the site and you got that envy head on with your pathetic wikipedia references, you are nothing but a fact collecter Darkside, anyone can do that, I did it at school but as for being creatitive noooooo you deff are not, not even a bit !
Im not the slightest bit bothered by you too fighting, as long as Im not expected to make an input, but HealthTip..... remember that you have work tomorrow mate, nearly 3am! This thread will still be here tomorrow if you want to add to it
Everyone is creative in their own way, HealthTip. Please you two stop...I know you say you two aren't fighting but it sure feels like it to me...I'm picking up emotions I don't want to pick up right now... please stop!
3AM? HealthTip and Ryan go to bed! lmao you guys need your sleep...shoo shoo go!
I still need to read your health hubs too...anything in there about partial insomnia HealthTip? that is what I have and the doc says it's because I worry a lot...but that is only a part of it.. I swear!
I will do Insomnia for you next week I promise and trust me I wasn't fighting with DS, twas just messing, he's actually a good guy albeit a bit of a bossy git
thank you HealthTip I got info...but I don't wanna read it from the doc. lol would rather read it from someone on here truthfully lmao. YOu know what he told me..I have to cut out caffine! I just smiled and nodded and though HELL NO! lol I have been drinking caffine a long time and it has never affected me this way so it isn't the caffine.
And I hope you guys weren't fighting. You know me I hate fighting truthfully!
Truthfully Darkside is a good guy who has good advice, I just like to wind people up but you young lady get your confidence back ok, I have seen you on here asking people if they have missed you.
In future you log on saying ok I am back you can quit missing me now, believe in yourself ok because you are hot as hell, you write well and you are a lovely person so please stop doubting yourself ok. Now I am off to bed but you take a hug ok and do what I say x
Okay okay HealthTip I'll do my best that is all I can do when it comes to confidence and I was joking around about the missing me thing. I just wanted to see if anyone actually did lol I'm sometimes weird like that.
Now GET YOUR ARSE IN BED!!!
Oh and *HUGS*
