I'm going to try to share some photos of some of my Usagi collection that I started collecting a couple of years ago. I am not very Tech Savvy so we'll see how it goes!

Wow! That came out huge! I will continue to work on this one! :shock: :D

So as I add more images I just keep adding them into the second post above by editing it and adding them there?

Those look great all framed up.

I'm not sure how Photobucket works for resizing pictures (I use Photoshop), but if you make them 600-800 pixels wide, that's a pretty good size for posting on forums.

I usually just put up additional images in a new post/reply rather than editing more into a previous post. If you edit the post to add more pictures in, then the thread doesn't get bumped to the top of the subforum to show that it's been updated. Creating a new post/reply will let us know that new content has been added so that we can come and check it out.

I love the frames. Simple black and classic corners. And I love posters that are matted (is that a word?).

They look great. Peace, maka

Right, I'll do this moving forward. Makes sense. Thanks.

Thanks. I also like the "less is more" approach, esp with Japanese pieces.

Give me clean corners and let the frame accent the piece, not dominate it.

Of course the frame shop really wanted to do all this crazy stuff (which would've cost a bunch more) but I just chose the highest quality solid black border frame I could find and laid in one matt.

Glad that you like it!

These are really beautiful.
I think you are right with the "less is more" approach. In my opinion, the frame should emphasize the aesthetics of the content and not take the attention away from it.
