Two questions. First, how do you post a picture in the body of the message?
Secondly, what is the name of the website that has all the celebrity photos (they usually have a watermark). I'm totally blanking right now.

One more website I found that I thought could have cute gifts. Its gifts for the piano lover. Kind of cheesy but cute.
http://www.pianostuff.com/
I like the ties, scarf, and the got keys tshirt. What do you think?

This is my favorite one and it is $102...




I can't tell how large/small it is, but it's nice. If we collect a lot of $, here's another site where we can order some things. Some cute stuff!


I like the idea of one of the T-shirts. We can send one of them with the piano charm.

Getty Images for your second question.

1st question...

Up at the top of the post you see 2 rows of Icons. The first row last icon is the icon you need to click on... I think it's picture of a computer screen. So click on that icon and a browse box will come up. Click on browse and your pictures should come up from your computer. Click on the picture you want and then click up. The link will show up. Click on the sixe you want and then click on host it. Next you need to click on the middle copy button and a link will show up in post box then simply click on send to post. Hope this helps?

I'll send out a newsletter reminding everyone of the gift idea and asking them if they can contribute!

Thanks for the info. Getty is what I was forgetting.
Here is another site - same concept, different stuff. http://www.strumhollow.com/piano_gifts.htm
One more question about adding photos. Is there a way of doing it if its not on my desktop (like a picture from a different website). For example, how did you post the pictures of the charms in your message.

I right clicked on the picture and saved it to my computer. I don't know anyother way of posting a picture unless you save it to computer.

Really like this Shirt. We can start with this and maybe a hat/tie as his first gift if we can't find the charm in time.

I like the hat and shirt but LOL not sure about the tie. You don't like the charm I posted? I thought it was very nice.

OK still can't post the image. Maybe I'm just too tired - Maybe its the MAC. anyway, I like the tie with the blue hands.
As far as the charm goes, its very nice but a couple of things concern me. Its gold and most of the stuff he wears is silver and leather/beads. Its the really contemporary stuff and this is much more classic. Do you know the dimensions on the piece? The men's jewelery is usually about 2 inches or more. I'm just worried its going to look small and dainty and very girly - and he's definitely more manly man. I was thinking more of the lines of this piece which is unfortunately for a guitarist. http://www.tribalhollywood.com/Detail.bok?no=356&cat=Multi-Pendant+Long+Chains

Having said all that, I am game for whatever you all decide and am certainly happy to contribute.
I looked at the Getty website. Its a nightmare to purchase photos from there. They have all kinds of exclusivity issues and won't actually let me purchase anything. I guess I will need to stick to some of the lower quality photos and make them smaller. I'll look at some of the other sites and see what they have. If anyone comes across decent resolution photos, let me know.

I second this - the gold, bling etc that's not for Matt. I def see him wearing more the kind you mention here. I also really like the t-shirt and cap - totally Matt Very Happy

This is a beautiful new 14k Piano Charm. It is a great gift for yourself or a loved one and makes the perfect addition to any jewelry collection. STYLE- Casted. METAL- 14k Yellow gold. ORIGIN- UNITED STATES. SOLID/HOLLOW- Solid. FINISH- Polished. APPROXIMATE LENGTH- 21.2mm (0.83"). APPROXIMATE WIDTH- 19.3mm (0.76"). APPROXIMATE WEIGHT- 1.8 grams.


I wouldn't say that was feminine looking at all at least not IMO but if no one likes it we will have to keep looking.

I'm sure we can find something like the guitar necklas you purchased. We will just have to keep looking.

Ok guys I think we should decide today who is collecting the money and doing the shopping! Then we can decide what we are getting. I still think we should go for a charm.

A couple of things on the gifts.
I am almost done with the photo book I mentioned. I'm thought his elimination. Now just need to do the hometown celebration/finale stuff. Once its completely done (hopefully in a couple of days - but i do have to work this weekend) I should be able to "share the book" with everyone. The only issue is that I have to compete it before I share it so I was wondering if any of you wanted to include notes/letters to Matt. Right now, what I did is essentially create a photo journey of his American Idol experience through photos I found on the internet. I can add pages with just notes and letters. I was going to put the website on the front of the book. Any other thoughts about what to include? Also, if anyone has any high quality photos of Matt, let me know. I'm working with what i got but that would help.
I can probably have this done soon if you want to give this as a first gift or we can wait until later.

As far as the charm goes, I just wanted to show you a photo of Matt from the hometown celebration of a charm that he is wearing so you can see where I came up with chunky jewellery.
(Edit - I thought I linked the actualy picture. If you look at the homecoming gallery, you will see a close up. One day I will learn to link photos).








That is why this website, tribalhollywood, appealed to me so much. It looks like the stuff he wears. What do you think about getting him a cross instead. I know he's said the church and his faith are important to him - its not as "right" as a piano, but I just want to make sure that whatever we get him he would like to wear. If you think the cross is inappropriate or too personal, I understand but I was curious as to what you thought about this one. Its fairly inexpensive and we can add a chain too. http://www.tribalhollywood.com/Detail.bok?no=177&cat=BICO+Pendants%3ACrosses. He's a Taurus and we can also do the symbol for that as a pendant.

I can take care of the photo book as a gift if you have an address of where to send it to.

I love that cross and I like the Taurus pendant idea too. Your book sounds great! Thank you for doing that! I will be happy to send money wherever to whoever, just let me know. sunny

I like the cross as well. I would love to see your photo album Sgr. I think we should as make a special tour program and give it to him during the last show. So who is going to collect the money?

I posted the picture for you sgr. LOL your link was making the page go on and on and on.

Macigirl I also removed her link from you post for the same reasons.

I wish I could show you how to post a picture sgr. LOL I guess my directions the other day were not very good...sorry. Maybe someone else could explain?

I say we go with the cross pendant for now and find him a piano one for one of the other shows. They also had some nice chains to go with it. I liked the crow bar and the ritual one. If we collect enough money we could buy the t-shirt and hat as well. What do you think? I think we can save your photobook for another show so that everyone has time to get their letters in.

I guess since no one has volunteered I will collect the money and purchase the gifts and then mail them off. LOL I forgot my paypal account so I will have to get that. If you are interested in contributing PM and I'll send you my paypal account info. I think it would be nice if you guys wrote up a little note (putting your name or screen name on it)for Matt and PM it to me and I'll add them to the gift.

Hey.. Just found out about the gift thing.
I wanted to say I love the cross pendant. It sure seems like something he would wear.
He likes cool, edgy contemporary stuff from what I've seen.

I live overseas, how can I contribute?

Sometime tonight I will send you my paypal account info but I believe you will have to have you own account set up as well.
