Thanks as always Betty.

Each time I see your pics I think to myself I really must organise the many (thousands) of downloaded pics of cartoons, caps, CD, and catalogue frillies I have on various drives ..... We've got very similar tastes in sissy material so I probably have mostly duplicates of your posts, but it's always great to see ones I forgot about.
I can't figure out why folks won't simply click on the previous page numbers? I'd be too scared I missed a great image I'd never seen before! Human nature I suppose ....
Thanks again Betty

A lot of them use the "recent" feature so only click on the most recent stuff in a topic, which will be the last page of a thread, but not necessarily all the new pix & posts in a thread. Likewise, many visit with blinders on, & just click on the last page of whatever has a "new" icon after it.

Most of our visitors don't even visit or save a link to our front/index pages. They come here directly to a specific section or thread they like or fits their "search" terms. After they checked the section or thread they landed on or saved, they move on without a clue that we have so much more to offer. They may only save a link to our Brolita gallery or guys dressing up gallery, or just a specific story or story section with no idea that we got loads of other stuff.

I find this shockingly true when I give directions to a page here or at another site to refer people to what they're looking for. If I don't give them highly detailed specific instructions, many of them are totally lost. It seems they can't use their own eyes & try to think a little. If there's not a big flashy colorful blinking animated icon, or an app for it these days, your typical modern web surfer can't get there.

Most don't even know how to copy & paste an address in their address bar, or type a web address into it. Golly, most people don't even know they have an address bar or don't know what it's for anymore. They think it's a search box, because on most modern devices, the address bar doubles as a search bar. Depending on their device, & on most modern windows machines, their searches may send them to a Bing or Yahoo search. A Bing or Yahoo search won't even find half of what is really on the web. You probably won't even find Betty's through Bing or Yahoo. It'll direct you to an obsolete page I made in 1996 or a page not associated with us at all... like a 1992 gay bar tour guide for sale at Amazon.

I get a laugh out of sites heavily populated by tablet & phone users. They don't post links to cool sites, online radio, music, & video. They post apps to them. They can't even get to a site on their own anymore or know how to search for one at google. They need to download & install an app to get to a site or they're lost. Then some these apps charge $1-$20 to download & install them. The apps are just a stripped down un-secure browser that link you to a website while they invade your privacy by sending all your activities & your device's contents to a company. They also suck up all your devices memory, resources, bandwidth, data limits, battery energy, & send you ads.

You don't need a bigger better $400 phone or $1000 tablet, with an unlimited expensive data plan, you just need to stop loading up your device with crap apps & learn how to use the real internet.

"There's an app for that" -- News Flash: You don't need an app for almost anything out there. Almost anything you think you need an app for is already available out there without one... usually for free. Just go to the site, & bookmark it in your browser so you can go there again.

Oops. Most people don't know what a browser bookmark is or how to use one. Most don't even know they have the feature. Some devices make it deliberately hard to find & use because they don't want you to bookmark the stuff you like. They want you to download, & install an app to what you like, possibly charge you for it, bombard you with ads embedded in it, & data-mine your privacy. If you can't find your bookmarks or it's too hard to use, get a different device or browser designed for the real web.

I was happy that one of my favorite free Linux astronomy programs is finally available for windows, android, & apple devices. But if you go to windows store, google play, or an apple site they want $2.90-$5 a year to download, install & use it (with lots of ads embedded in it). Nope, it's free & ad-free everywhere else. The program creators made it for free for educational uses for everyone. Just go to the creator's or a Linux site to get it.

You don't need to download, install, & pay for an app to get to Pandora music, Iradio, TuneIn, or listen to an online radio & music stream. You just visit the website for free to get it. But we have a new modern group of web surfers who don't know that. Their device & apps are leading them around, limiting their choices, & hiding more than half the web from them.

Many are in too much of a hurry on their touch screens, don't click around, so miss a lot of stuff too. They all want to hurry back to their Facebook & twitter accounts in hopes that they'll look cool with their friends by posting pix of their food, selfies, or funny clips somebody else made.

Almost nobody except pros & some older people seem to know how to surf the web anymore. If there's not an app for it, or Bing & Yahoo can't find it on the first page in under a minute, it don't exist to them.

----------

Yep it takes a lot to keep all those pix & stuff organized. I gave up trying to categorize them all too much. The sissy ones are in a sissy pix folder. But that folder isn't in "documents" but in a subfolder buried in the C-drive directory so if somebody ever does get in my computer, they won't easily find them. I back them up to an odd folder on an external drive too. In the sissy pix folder there's sub-folders for every year from 2003-present & a folder for all pre-2002 sissy pix. Pix are placed in them according to their "date modified". There's also a sissy outfits folder there for pictures not of sissies, but of frilly outfits. However if the outfit is modeled by a male it goes is the sissy folders instead.

I have a kinky sissy folder there too. Those are for pix of BDSM sissies, or rubber, leather, latex, & vinyl sissies. I even have a separate folder there just for panties. I have a "Best of sissy pix" folder for my very most favorite sissy pix. I just started a new folder there called "recently posted" for all the pix I posted over the past 5 years. Almost all of what I've posted here over the past 5 years has been expanded, shrunk, enhanced, cropped, or color altered. This gives them their own place without confusing them with the originals while still preserving the original images just the way I found them in the other folders.

Then I have "temp" folders of pix, or media for stuff I intend to process, modify, enhance, or expand to post soon.

You might want to check your old pictures. Duplicates of them that I posted may be better quality then the ones you originally saved long ago. In many cases the ones I posted are not just re-runs, but better quality versions. But often there are better versions out there, but at the time I saved them, I could only find a worse version. So feel free to repost anything that's better quality.

But a bigger picture is not always a better quality one. If it's blurry, it was just blown up, not better quality. Anybody can zoom/blow up a small picture so it looks bigger, but then it's blurrier or pixelated. That's not better quality. If anything, if it's a little blurry or pixelated, it needs to be shrunk to make it look sharper or better.

I also have duplicates. Often I saved a picture, then saved the same image from another site later that has a different image name, size, & creation date of the same picture. That's especially true when saving new images. Until I process or post them, & put them in the correct folder I may not remember that I already saved that image. When you saved dozens of images in a few hours, a week or 2 later when visiting another site are you gonna remember every image you saved before if they had duplicates under a different name?

I've posted over 20,000 pix at Betty's in the past 10 years. I have much more than 10 times that much in storage. I Wouldn't be able to keep track & remember all of them.

-------------

Digital Photography 101:

Just like bigger pictures don't mean better quality, bigger file sizes don't always mean better quality. A 600x400 picture should be only 25-70kb in size. If it's larger than that, it was saved in the wrong format or processed incorrectly, or with crappy software (or you may not know WTF you were doing?). It's not a 1995 digital camera. You don't need to process your images the old school way with photoshop on an apple. Those old photo-pro guys are just stubborn & still believe the 1990s way is the only right way. Some of them even teach photography & insist on doing it the old digital way is the only way. Well, they're wrong. Most of them haven't touched a windows or Linux machine since 1996 (if ever) or used anything but photoshop in 20 years, so don't have the slightest clue about modern & incredibly easy modern image processing.

Can you imagine if the movie indusry followed these old-school photographer's lead? We'd all still be watching pixelated blurry 200p MPG movies over 2gb in size that looked worse than VHS tape, or VHS tape at home. For any quality movie, it would have required several massive hard drives for a single movie, or huge reels of 70-120mm movie film. So your old "purist" photography teachers are wrong by listening to the ancient hype of apple & photoshop fan-boys/advertisers rather than trying something new.

Those old 78rpm records are great, but there's no way that they will be better quality than a modern recording. Abandon your old photography professors & their old students who still blindly believe them, & move on to the real world. Loss-less JPG is just as good as .raw .tiff .jpg or .png at a fraction of the size. That's what loss-less means! When you unzip a compressed zip or gzip file isn't all the data still there? Lossless JPG is the same thing.

Oh wait! The apple professors say you can't edit, process, or manipulate a JPG, & even if you could, it would ruin the original image. WTF rock have these coots been living under? It's simply NOT true. Unless you deliberately delete or overwrite the original, the original is not altered when you save an altered copy you made from the original. If you photo copy a page out of a book, then write notes on the copy, the book will still be fine. And .jpg, .gif, .raw, .png, & .tiff are not exclusively OS or photoshop files. They can be used & processed on any OS or program capable of handling image files. An image file is just binary code. When you alter or process an image you're just re-writing that code. It's not something apple or photo shop can only do or do better that something else. It does not affect the original when you alter a copy made in an imaging program.

How good your image comes out will depend of the quality of the lens, camera, your own talent, & your knowledge, not by whether you use apple, photoshop, & most certainly not by people who constantly preach digital imaging rules written in the mid 1990s.

In our movie section, we have 50 minute Star Trek episodes at about 140-165mb per episode. At 30 frames per second, by the old photography & apple professor's photography rules, each episode should be around 14,000 terabytes in size for the same quality. It doesn't take rocket science to see the old photography school professor & his fan boys are very wrong & the movie industry got it right.

We'd all be watching 300-360p at home & still be saving 200-240p VHS or pixelated MPGs if the movie industry paid attention to the way-outdated photography "purists" rules.

Thank god the movie & TV industry don't pay attention to pro-digital photography lessons written over 20 years ago. Most of that stuff was close to right in the 1990s, but was total nonsense by 2003. But die-hard fans, & their outdated teachers who don't know any better still hang on to that old crap.



----------------

Why do I rattle on for no reason? Because it's what I do, & Betty's fame used to be that I & anybody CAN rattle on -- and we loved them for it. If I don't insert it in a thread where those app peeps with blinders on go, 90% of our visitors would never see it, read it, or know it even exists. 90% of our users just go to a specific section or thread of Betty's, or just use the "new" or "recent" features to get somewhere here. They miss most of Betty's. So yep, I'm forcing some users to read, think, & explore who don't here. Worse yet, some come here just for J/O material. Some think that just happens at Stories, but I have to admit, sometimes I get excited just looking at a pretty dress or outfit. Drool --- Frillies!

You're in my sissy school. Expect to learn something or get spanked if you don't. For those who already had their schooling & know how to surf, & read... did you know you can scroll past all of this is less than a second? If you didn't, maybe I should write a lot more until you figure out how to use this new fangled internets thingy.

Thanks Betty for that dissertation.  Being 71 I can't fanthom how people are so illiterate of the internet.  They allow companies and others to persuade them that they have to pay to do anything.  It's getting sadder everyday how people blindly follow the crowd not knowing that there are alternatives.  I have more bookmarks than I want to count but I can connect quickly where I want to go and don't have to worry about my waining memory when I want to locate a site.  Remember the 8 0's and 90's when things were just starting to get off the ground.  I took a course on how to evaluate educational software in 1981 and we had cassette players that loaded the memory into our Sinclair computers that had almost nothing.  Learned to program in Basic on them.  Then saw the Commodore 64's come out and thought we had died and gone to heaven.  I could go on and on but we had to make it work now there's an APP for that.  A continuing dumbing down of the populace.  Or are we just lazy or is this what we are destined to?

I don't think you're rattling on Betty. I quite enjoy seeing your perspective on everything IT and yes I did read through it all  ;-)

As for duplicates, I use a nice "freeware" called Auslogics Duplicate File Finder. It is really good at knocking out all those dupes you'd forgotten about and is free of ads (if you ignore it's self promotional material - which isn't all that bad anyway).

Keep up the blogs Betty  :-*

I have some more males crossdressing. Of course some of them are not real, but most of them are.

Enjoy!
