    Looking at the landscape and the mountains in the distance are we on bottom of Llanfrothen? Or am I miles away? Mountain looks like Moel y Gest from that angle? I'd hazard a guess fields just under Bryn Llydan????

    Near enough dead on, Mur huwcun, we're the farm the left of the Bryn Llydan you look across the Morfa from the main road.


    Yeah, she's a 6 cyl 285, it's a John Deere front linkage, but no front PTO.


    The acrobat does a good job with the right person in control, just takes a bit of practice, this ones nearing the end of it's life.


    The RP12 is our second, the first shat it's pickup reel at the end of the season two years ago, this one seems to be in better shape despite being older.

    I've also uploaded them to facebook, and a friend of mine had someone try and use some of her uploaded stuff as their own when applying for a course, luckily for my friend a friend of hers who worked at the college spotted them as being hers not the applicants, so I now watermark anything half decent I stick on facebook.

    Both the desaturation and watermarking were done in The Gimp 2.8.4 ( www.gimp.org )

    The only problem is
    GIMP is just as good at removing watermarks as it is at adding them.

    True enough, but by the time they've been compressed by facebook a couple of times I doubt anyone can really remove them, I'm only mildly concerned because I don't know if the person involved was a mutual friend or not, since she (the person who had the artwork borrowed) never revealed who it was that did it.

    If you're concerned about your images being used on the web without your permission you can use google image to do a reverse lookup, to check whether they have been used elsewhere (the image needs to have been indexed by the search engines).

    Here's a blog which explains what need to do Using Google reverse image. If you paste the url of the image I removed the watermark on into the search field you should get a positive result. Even though the file name is different the lookup finds the image you originally posted. You can also get plugins for firefox and chrome if it's something you need to do regularly.

    Click here to see the result after using the example above Reverse Lookup Result.
