Ah thanks very much,

I do actually already have Picasa, but how do you resize a picture using it :) ?

Sorry, I'm a bit of a novice :S

I'm not an expert myself, but see if this works

After opening a picture, select "Edit in Picasa". I think depending on your version of picasa/operating system you can do this by right clicking on the photo or double clicking on the photo will give you an "Edit in Picasa" option.

Under File on the Drop Down Menu, select "Export Picture to Folder" and select "resize to" "800" pixels.

If this doesn't work send me a PM.

It's kinda hard to have a pic of a ride sign from the rides at Power Park Finland, because there really aren't any signs at all. BUT I'm not too sure about that. Some rides may have a sign, I dunno.

Anyway, here are photos from Särkänniemi:

^thank you so much for the pictures, excellent.

I know that at least 3 of those Power Park rides had signs (Fiesta Mexicana, Mega Drop and Pegasus) as I saw the signs when I was there last summer with TPR, but didn't have a my camera. The signs may have been small but they were there.

Well this is my first post lol, but I have watched the forums for a while. I grew up around Myrtle Beach and I see that there are not a lot of photos of the flat rides that were at the Myrtle Beach Pavilion, I would like to see some get put in the photo section of the site. :)

I would have no trouble adding flat ride pictures for MBP. since the park is already in the database. Actually, I'll look old PTRs over the weekend for photos.

However, keep in mind the primary focus of the Park Index is the present/future. We want to provide information for those who may be planning to visit a park. We want to give enthusiasts a feel for each park and get them excited about visiting.

Populating the database with closed/defunct parks (while good from a historical/nostalgic perspective) doesn't build towards the current goal. It's nice to have but not the primary focus.

^Thanks, for some reason I thought the ride was a Rockin Tug. Now anyone who looks it up in the Park Index will not make the same mistake.

I remember seeing Sandstorm in the requests list, but I didn't remember if it was for the sign or the ride.
