cheers LW - I was playing about with some software; it's quite easy to do and just needs dropping the photos in and then clicking the buttons :D

Wow Rockhopper great stuff, pretty much every time I've been up that direction its been an absolute nightmare so glad to see you got perfect conditions. I have a few more in that area to do myself so this could possibly be my first camp out for a while also. Well done :D
