Carry On Up The Khyber icons (Batch #1)

Teasers:

So, time for that well-known epic tale of the British Raj being caught with their underpants on. It could spell the end of the Empire (but that's only what Major Shorthouse thinks, and who asked him?), but there'll certainly be much tiffin, Belchers, Burpas, cunning disguises, stiff upper lips, Rank stupidity, British incompetence, and no political correctness whatsoever.

For DW fans, there's Roy Castle (film Ian) joining the regulars, Peter Butterworth in his Finest Hour, Angela Douglas as Princess Jelhi, Joan Sims, Julian Holloway (in his only Carry On role that's more than a cameo: "Oh F...udge!") and unexpected Wanda Ventham.

Total Icon Count: 58

Yes. I am learning stuffs all over the place now. :-) But I clearly had a quality-loss issue there again. I am making progress, but I fear I am much too lazy to ever get beyond basic anything.

I think I mentioned when we were discussing image quality before that GIF is problematic for photos because it has a limit of 256 different colours per image. This is even more noticeable with an animated GIF that uses more than one photo, because "image" means the whole thing, so each individual photo is reduced to fewer than 256 colours.

The speckly effect is called "dithering", and is supposed to give the impression of gradient shading with fewer colours. Sometimes it works, sometimes flat colouring looks better. There's usually an option when you save the GIF to say whether you want it or not.

Thank you. You probably did. I tend to be in favour of glancing at any given manual or instructions, and then working things out by pressing buttons. :-D (I may have watched too much DW)>

No need to bother Major Shorthouse, I can do that: You're an elephant.

Another Doctor Who connection: Bernard Bresslaw was Doctor Who's first Ice Warrior.

Heh! Indeed.

I know, I thought to myself about that, but I'd included him each time in the list when I did the other icons, and thought it probably wasn't worth amending, because, well, you couldn't see it was him...

Aw, thanks!

Actually, I forgot to link to it, but I did a second batch here, if you're interested.

Gotta love Carry On Up The Khyber! ;-)
