DigameXtra user tip! How to get around the “3 pics max per For Sale ad” submission rule!

Want to include more photos than the submission rules allow? 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/

SPW Construction: We employed SPW Construction to completely retile the floors of three bedrooms, and the floors and walls of two bathrooms. They did an excellent job, with lovely clean edges on the walls, and nice flat surfaces, despite the contours of the walls and floors underneath.
We were impressed by the things they did automatically – like matching lines on floor and wall tiles, repairing small patches of damp they found, and repainting the dirty ceilings in the bathrooms. When they found evidence of termite damage, they let us know so that we could OK some repair work. The work was carried out while we were away, and the team cleared the rooms before they started, and cleaned and replaced everything at the end of the job. All the way through we were sent updates, and sometimes photos, of the work progress. We dealt mostly with Scott, who couldn`t have been kinder, and even took us to a tile warehouse, where the rang of tiles was much larger, and cheaper, than anywhere else we`d been. We thought the cost for the work was very reasonable and, for once, the final cost matched the estimate. We will certainly use the firm again.
