Re: Ticket Question

It will not be a problem, I order tickets for me and my wife every year and they have my name on both.
I have done a group booking before and there is only 1 name on all tickets.

But feel free to check.

Is the ice due to cold fuel or gas purging of the tanks?

Re: iMAC for Photo Editing

I am using Aperture, I purchased an imac last August (27in i7 quad core) and I am well impressed.
Aperture is great for straight editing, very comparable to Lightroom if you want lots of creativity then you need to go the PS route.

Re: Editing photos for a Photobook - advice please

Hi Russ,

I have done 3 books with Photobox all with good results. I have sharpened images as usual and got good results on the screen I then find that these are translated well to the book. I know people on here have had mixed results with Photobox but I think they are good for the money.

Re: RAF Finningley 1977- Silver Jubilee Review

Great stuff, my Dad was stationed there then and I remember the build up so well, it was a great time to be a kid at a RAF base.
