Default Screen door modifications

I got this thin aluminum screening from Lowe's. I secured it to the screen door with screws and painted the edges. Good airflow and I don't have to worry about the doggies tearing the screen out of the door.

Sorry I thought I attached photos of the screen and the screen door but the photos didn't post and I cant figure out how to delete the post

kotonk, try this -- it's easy and it works -- just go to the link below, upload your photo, copy the URL that pops up in the box, and paste the URL right into your posting:

http://photoposting.is-great.net/

And if the doggies use their toenails to tear through the protective armor on the door, maybe make them wear little soft booties?

Profdant139, OK, how can I get back into the post to add the URL?

Well, I use Chrome, so this answer may or may not apply to other browsers. (And if this answer makes me sound like someone who is not a computer expert, that's exactly right.)

First, I added a bookmark for the photo posting link.

Now, let's say I have started a post in this forum. Next, I open a new tab.
I go to my bookmark and pull up the photo posting app. I upload my photo and copy the URL that appears in the box.

Then I click back into the tab for this forum and paste the URL into my message.

I hope that is helpful!!

Profdant139, thanks, I understand what your doing. My problem is once the post is posted and a short time period goes by the edit tab is no longer is available. There is no way for me to edit my post after a period of time. I cant even delete this post.

Thanks for trying to help me, maybe ill just repost this and add the photos.

kotonk, my mistake -- I misunderstood your question. Yes, once the post is up for a while, you can't edit it. No big deal -- just hit reply to your own post and then put the picture into the reply window.

Looks great! I was wondering how you would attach the "armor" to the screen door -- I can see from the photos that the screws are on the sides of the "armor patch" and not the top and bottom, which means they are screwed into the frame of the screen door.

Well done!

Profdant139, thanks, I believe figuring how to post the pics was harder than attaching the aluminum screen to the door. Its actually not hard to post the pictures. I just used the attachment "paperclip" tab on the initial post and the pics showed up. I used my phone and phone app on the first attempt to post the pics that may have been the problem.

To bad theres no way to know which direction the pictures will post portrait or landscape.

After I took the picture was able to use smaller screws on the top and bottom of the screen.

I'll feel better about the little hyper dogs tearing through the screen now.

This might be tech overload... but when you take an original photo, with a camera or cellphone, the image retains the angle at which it was taken.

Most software on your phone and computer will auto adjust this for viewing, however when it's uploaded as an attachment, it'll be flipped... for some reason a lot of the software on forums do not adjust it.

Basically the easiest way to prevent it is to open your picture on a desktop, Paint, Photo, whatever... use that to rotate your picture, crop it a little, then re-save it. Then re-upload it.

It's a pain, but I find it easier than tilting my head physically to one side.

Thanks for that info on the picture posting URL and the doggie screening is a great idea and looks great too.
