I agree to that! at my age I cannot see me trying to load a video to Marlboro.! I just blew the camera contest by loading my portfolio wrong and it cannot be undone. Not everyone is computer Friendly. In fact most of the members here on this site helped me to learn the computer, everyone is like family here. thank you Y'all

I will pray that you win something! Think positive, think the Big V for Vegas...Think Mailbox Come on Fed Ex bring SweetChile a nice present from Marlboro!!!!!

Ok new question for someone...How do we shrink from 3.45 to 1 mb without losing half the photo? I have tried paint and it takes away most of the pic.

What programs do you have that can open a pic?

If you have Microsoft Office you can open with Microsoft Office Picture Manager and you can compress the picture you can also make the pic smaller in paint without losing any of the photo. Go to resize and make sure "maintain aspect ratio" box is checked.

If you right click a pic and then go to "open with" and tell me what programs are listed I may be able to help you.

won movie tickets to day from marboro gold

Sorry that was for Win7, for XP open your pic in paint then go to Image then Stretch/Skew. You will see 100% in both horizontal and vertical. Change both to the same number....I'd start with 75%. Then go to "file" and use "save as" so your orig. pic wont be changed. Name the new pic and then check it's properties to see if it is small enough. Repeat process if necessary. Will take some trial and error to get it right.


BTW just got email I won the Travel Earbuds Set

I googled the rules to paste and send to my mom in email, because she wanted a list of the prizes, I do this with all the contest for her, I came across this...Official Rules-Marlboro.com and it says for week 5, so maybe Marlboro put it on google to try and give everyone a heads up? I also saw it on another site., and questioned it also. so if you google it exactly as Official Rules-Marlboro.com and read down to challenge, it has week 5!

I checked the page and it is from Marlboro!!! It may be some sort of test from Marlboro, to see who wants the trips bad enough.

Thank you VegasVegan for the info....It worked and my photos are now 1mb. Congrats on the Win! Now get that trip to Vegas...

is everyone done writing their story this weekend?

Thanks Elizabeth. While I'd love to win the big one, it's nice that they have tons of small prizes.

I entered my story, it wasn't too good. I couldn't think of anything clever

MisterPlow said:   Thanks Elizabeth. While I'd love to win the big one, it's nice that they have tons of small prizes.

You're very welcome. Marlboro is really great about sending out nice gifts.

I took a differant approach at this week, can't wait to share and see what everyone thinks.

Ok here is the story i gave to marlboro, tell me what you think.


I'm standing at the worlds last velvet rope! Submitted my last song list for them to play. While they looked over my list, I shared some ending bartender advice I heard last night. Still not getting past the ropes but dressed to impress all the folks. I decided to pass them my drink creation before the beginning of the devastation. Thinking they may enjoy a good laugh and let me pass I told my world ending joke. Now here I stand telling a story on getting past the velvet ropes. A last night in Vegas is beyond my wildest hopes.

Very cute & very creative! I told the bouncer that I had been there the night before & the owner requested I return tomorrow to vote for the employee of the month, who would receive a $1000.00 bonus on their check. I said I was voting for him & had to get in quickly to vote......my story is not great but I couldn't think of anything.

I'm not doing the dance for next weekend, i s*ck at dancing. someone else can win that week. LOL

Thank You! It's loaded and am playing with it! Looks goooooood! Again, Thank You!

Ok here's one for the day! How can the same photo be submitted and Marlboro post it, from 3 diferent people in 2 different states?

The tornado pic shows up 3 times

Janet V-Monticello NY row3
Lisa A. Monticello NY row 10
Brian B. Theodore AL row 45

How can this be? I thought we were to use our own pics and not from the internet, and not each others also?

Agree with both of you! It has been rumored on a lot of sites, that people are using "stock" internet pics for submissions. I guess all three of us have seen the same thing! So Sad.....We're submitting OUR pics....and actually "playing the game"

At least those of us non cheaters can feel good about ourselves even if we do not win anything. it is a shame that people can get that low to cheat. Where's their conscious? What makes it worse is that D.L. Blair posted all 3 of the identical photos from different states and did not notice the cheating!!!!

I think your essays were great! I had a hard time so here is what I wrote,


Everyone loves to be on Camera. This was my one chance, so I walk up to the 2 attendants and ask if they could help me carry my heavy bags of presents into the party, but first would they mind taking a picture for the Party. Of course I
was standing there with my camera and also handed them a nicely boxed gift of chocolate attached to a Champagne bottle
and Balloon. They were so sweet to move the ropes aside and carry in my shopping bags filled with Balloons and bottles of Champagne. Wow, The Marlboro Party is Great here in Vegas! Thank you Marlboro for giving me a wonderful Dream and maybe someday I will get a real chance to try this out.

here is my story:

12/21/2012 Beginning of the End! The first thing I did was create a rock the house song list, took the vast wisdom on tap in hopes of moving on past. Knowing I needed to get into the worlds last party, I was dressed to impress and looking my best. The next thing I did was create a serve chilled drink that everyone would like to try before they die. Did my best to break the ice with my jokes and now I'm standing at the VIP ropes.

that was a nice story, i sure hope more of us get the vip trip.
this weeks dance contest is not for me, think i'll skip this week. GLTY
