    Fantastic, Sandgroper!

    You have been working on this project for some time now and you are almost done. Can't wait to see it complete and on display. Your giant picture looks great, the enlargement worked fabulously!

    One thing I don't understand.....why in the world would you let your girlfriend's foot stay into the picture? As you said, I use Photoshop to make me look better. I suggest you remove her foot asap! lol

    Ok, gents, I went out to a local hardware shop yesterday and bought a bit of board to mount the photo, some acid free glue and a cheap paint roller. I took the lid off the glue bottle and poured it onto the board and then used the paint roller to spread it out as evenly as I could over the board. Once that was done, I carefully lined up the edge of the photo and just rolled it out onto the board. Then I grabbed the missus's rolling pin from the kitchen (she was at work!) and starting from the centre I rolled outwards towards to edge of the board to remove any air bubbles. I then left it overnight and this morning turned it over so the photo was face down and using the edge of the board as a guide, I used a scalpal to trim off the edges of the pic. I'll now leave it to dry properly for a week, then coat the photo with a laquer or varnish befor the next step. I searched youtube for how to block mount photos before I started any of this, I found several different methods so I used a combination of several methods and a bit of my own initiative. I'm reasonably happy so far.
