Some wonderful pics of the Anichkov Palace were posted on the GREMB message board.

Wonderful photos!  When I was in Russia in 1991, our tour attended a musical evening event in a structure just adjacent the Anitchkov.  The event was enjoyable, but I would have much rather toured the Anitchkov. The facade, as shown here, was regal and imposing, and of course I thought of it in context with Nicholas and Alexandra's first married days . . . and of their daughters sometimes taking tea with their "Amama" and occasionally attending parties at this maganificent site.

My partner was recently in St. Petersburg for the British Government. He was at receptions in many places but was at the Anichkov. I have some pics from that visit but I am not sure how to post them. I was not able to go, which was very upsetting.

I am working with a really sympathetic guide in Petersburg to get the most out of my five days there this summer. She e-mailed me today that the Anichkov is now open for tours and much is unchanged from Tsarist times...she remembers going to New Year's Day children's parties there when she was a child. Hope she is right about the "unchanged" part...Melissa K.

Amadeo and Reco
Please re size all your photos to be no larger than 5x7 inches, and please limit total file size to 150k when ever possible, and use 72 dpi resolution.  These pictures are simply far too large.
Thanks
FA

At the house, my size computer screen have 17 inches and at work, it has 21 inches. There is nothing abnormal: we are in 2005, isn't this?

Many people use dial up access for the internet. HUGE files can take forever to load.
Also, large photos chew up our server bandwidth making it hard for everyone to use the forum
Please simply abide by my polite and reasonable request, or I shall have no choice but to stop you from posting photos at all.
MANY users have written me privately about your overly large photos being a problem.  If you have an issue about big size for things being important to you, please take it elsewhere.

Thanks

Amedeo & Reco,
It looks like the pictures above have been removed, and I hope you'll repost them as your pictures have been wonderful on this board.
I think what the Forum Administrator doesn't understand is that many of us see pictures on our home computers with no problem and when they are posted they are much larger.  I have found that by previewing any post first, I can get a sense if a picture is going to fit on the board screen without having to scroll across the bottom of my screen.  You want the image to fit in the window without scrolling.  As an example, your Fieldmarshal Hall image is 16"x13" and while one would think this would fit on a 17" monitor, I have to scroll across and down to see parts of it.  What I usually do is download such large posting to look at it in my photo software.
You need to have some kind of photo software, and it makes sense to make a smaller version of the picture you're posting (within the guidelines the Forum Admin listed) and then post it.
I'm assume there is more detail on how to resize pictures in the Admin area.
Most of us barely understand how the pictures work on our computers, and in my case, it is only luck that I can get posting pictures to work at all.
I hope you'll repost the missing pictures and continue your wonderful contributions to the forum.
Bob G

Marvelous painting of the Anichkov, thank you GDNastya. Many times I seem to prefer paintings/watercolors, especially of interiors, as the detail and clarity are incredible.
