Broken photos are broken

hallowing01

MiaSnow...What are you up to over there on Hwang? You have a number of cute little photo boxes set up, but I'm not sure if they're for sale or for people to play in...be that as it may, I went ahead and played in them today. Yes, I haven't yet figured out how to take photos with the new viewer! All of those splotches of light are because my pictures are broken. Mia suggested that I resize my browser to fit the photo size, and I played with that a bit, but I wasn't able to quite get it right. So far the new viewer's been kind of a disaster for me. When I click things, it crashes. That's rather detrimental to my SLing !

All grumblies aside, this outfit has several lovely parts to it. The first is the adorable Halloween Kitty group gift from Draconic Kiss (activate your group tag at the store to get it). The second, MiaSnow's Wild Woman hair in new colors! It's part of the Ghost Busters grid-wide hunt sponsored by Vain Inc, and packs of these will be in her store hidden in the ghost. The third, Slink's batty bijou Halloween skin -- it gives me a rather egyptian look, and I quite like it. And fourth, the Kurotsubaki feathered boots. I love the softness of these, and my RL self totally wants to snitch 'em.

My cat is sleeping on my foot, and it's a cold day outside. Have a good one!

hehe. yeqa decreasing the actual size of my screenshots is the only way i've been able to fix teh broken photos... new brower is way wonky! i've missed out on THREE awesome lucky chair prizes from friends offering me tp's to claim the M... because nothing rezzes properly ;; another friend crashes every time she breathes. ahh, the posing tombs! i started them in hopes of halloween release, but needed some poses, which i cant do atm. so for now they're just perty places for pics... help yourself^^ in the future i've got plans to work more with a few awesome pose makers to make more posing rooms, perhaps with props and stuff. we'll see. this time of year gets to be difficult to coordinate schedules! and yea, i acquired more land so there will be changes in hwang up and coming woo! <3 u acharyia. pet kitteh for me :)

I was having huge issues with those weird light ghosts ruining every picture I took that happened to be around anything that had glow enabled. I ended up uninstalling SL and then doing a fresh install and, surprisingly, that totally fixed everything. I haven't downloaded the new viewer though and from what I've heard about it, I don't think I will be doing so. Love your pictures though, you worked those ghosts in great! :D

I think disabling glow might help? Of course, that means you can't take photos of things with glow :/

It looks like reflections from your hair...and actually adds some mysterious air to the photos. I'll have to try and take some pics with my Wild Woman hair in the new viewer to see if it does that on my computer, too.

On my laptop, pics with glow work fine-but I don't have high-res snapshots enabled...maybe that's it?

Glow doesn't show in high-res snapshots for me (VWR-8033); so far I've found at least one JIRA for the repeating ghost-glow (VWR-9147).

Thank you for the comments, guys ! ILU all. Now I know what the posing tombs are for, and will disable glow -- although I wanna keep my photos hi-res v.v
