DigameXtra user tip!

How to get around the 3 pics max per “For Sale” ad submission rule: Use collages to post more pics per post. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, your 3 pics submitted may actually be many more pics. See this example where I put four pics into a single photo. Following this example you could post 12 pics total but only send in 3 pics. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

This is a single photo created from 4 seperate photos. Try it!

Lyrid meteor shower to peak on Monday night, will you be able to catch a glimpse of a shooting star? The first major meteor shower in more than 3 months will give stargazers across Europe the chance to see frequent shooting stars in the coming nights. The peak activity is expected on Monday night and early Tuesday morning when up to 20 meteors per hour may be seen. Unfortunately, thick clouds due to a storm system across southern Europe will limit viewing for many locations from Spain to Italy and the Balkan Peninsula. Source Article


iPhone (iOS) Tricks:
-Turn your iPhone into a large, rectangular magnifying glass. Great for when you can’t find your reading glasses! The ability to zoom in on real-world images might prove helpful in all kinds of situations, such as when you’re squinting at a menu in a dimly-lit restaurant. To use it, go to Settings, open General, choose Accessibility, and then tap Magnifier and turn the feature on. You can also enable auto-brightness at this time, which means the camera screen will react to ambient light levels. With this toggle set to on, you can close Settings and launch the iOS Camera app and triple-tap the Home button to bring up the Magnifier option. Use the slider at the bottom of the screen to take a closer look at anything, from a photograph to a block of text.
-Check that a surface is level. iOS has an extra built-in app hidden behind the Compass. Load up the Compass, then swipe left, you’ll find a spirit level tool. Use it to make sure your pictures are hanging correctly and your DIY is up to scratch. An iPhone may not be as precise as a dedicated spirit level, but it’s very handy. Either use the spirit level with your phone laid out flat or with it perched on its side in either portrait or landscape mode. If you tap the screen, you can measure the difference between two surfaces, with the red margin showing how much the two angles vary.
