Resize the Font in this Forum Solved

I do have difficulty at the moment in reading the items on this Forum, and even what I am typing at this moment.
Is there any way that I can resize the Font, everywhere else on my system is fine, it's just here.
Thank you.

Re: Picasa substitute

Well, I don’t remember exactly what I did, but Picasa is now up and running almost perfectly on my LM19. I thought perhaps it was Wine that was causing some of the problem, so I uninstalled what I thought were the files, by using the Package Manager. then I hopefully cleaned my system with :- sudo c...

Re: Picasa substitute

Well. I followed the link to “Chip” and hopefully downloaded it correctly. When I executed it, I got the License agreement, Picasa 3 Setup Screen telling me that it had been set up on my Computer, Picasa opened onto my Desktop and I thought I had cracked it. However, I could not do anything with it ...

Picasa - copy .exe file from LM17 to LM19

Question, I think I still have Picasa on LM17, on a drive somewhere, could I copy that to LM19 as I cannot download it any more?
or is there any way that I can transfer that programme from one drive to another?

Thank you

Re: Picasa substitute

I have had a look at suggested options thank you, but have been spoilt by Picasa. The beauty of that programme was that I could add, delete, resize and re-arrange photos, also add and resize text etc. which I do to all of my photos. I haven't as yet found a comparable alternative. Question, I think ...
