Thanks, Ed. Now that the weather's getting warmer up here, I'll get some recent pictures and send them to Jim.

Cetacea depends on contributions, so if you've got some nice shots of your Whaler, please send them along.

The easiest way is to e-mail pre-scanned images. The images need to be in a standard file format, like JPEG (.jpe .jpg .jpeg), in order for me to be able to view them. Once an image has been scanned as a JPEG, some quality is lost and it can never be restored. So please save the images as HIGHEST quality when you scan them and save them as JPEGs.

It's better for the image to arrive with too much detail than not enough.

Other file formats like TIFF (.tif) are also good, although this format has no compression and tends to create very large files.

Several people have sent images as (.dat) files; these are not useful when they arrive at this end. We don't have the proprietary software to extract the images from the .dat file. So please stick to standard formats.

If you don't have a scanner or digital camera, you can always snail-mail me an extra print of your favorite Whaler photograph. Just standard 4x6 or 3x5 prints are good.

If you have some prints and want to send them, let me know and I'll e-mail you my postal address.

The Cetacea section is especially looking for Whalers in their marine environment, with owners aboard or in the shot.

Don't forget to include the details of the photograph:

The Boat: year/model/length/custom features
The engines: make/horsepower/year/prop
The location: where/when/who/what/why

I will try to rotate new photographs into the Cetacea section about every two weeks, as contributions permit.

Boating season is coming--go buy some film!

TIF does have file compression. Unlike
JPG, which is a lossy compression (you don't
get back the same bits, but you do get back
a picture that looks a lot like what you
started with), TIF's LZW compression is
non-lossy (you get back the same bits).

However, JPG is the right format for pictures
on the web. It compresses very well and
decompresses quickly.

I'll get some Montauk pictures for you by and by.
