Watermarks Of The Jurassic
Nice pic of my kids, huh?
My mother just emailed it over. Oh, did some of you guess that?
Yeah, the *burned-in date* is a dead giveaway, right?
Tell me something, why, WHY DO THEY ALL DO THAT?
Why do fossils all, for some reason, rig their cameras to ruin EVERY pic with fluorescent, DOS-like fonted *dates*???
It's just got to be because....when they go through their albums today, they can't remember anything about the old photos they have. They don't know when or where pictures were taken; and they often can't even tell you which baby/toddler is which!
What kills me is that these 'old coots' and 'old bags' can't do ANYTHING technological. Heck, their VCRs all still flash 12:00 and their car clocks are off by an hour for half the year. But, by some fluke, they unanimously figured out how to ruin digital photos with unnecessary data.
AND, they all have their cameras set on ridiculously high pixel counts.
Then they try to attach like 10 of them in a single email....which invariably gets bounced back because of excessive size. Then jurassic techno-frustration rears its head....
And they call one of us thinking they have a *virus* - which many of them do get because they click on tantalizing *win $1,000* pop up ads and the like!
The clincher is that high resolution shots are only needed if someone is planning on printing out the photo.
But who really wants a framed picture with the date burned in?!
