Welcome to PaintMyPhoto

We have recently completed an upgrade to our server , more disk space ensures our future for some time to come. However we always have our monthly hosting bill to pay, and we want to have some highly specific enhancements developed (read more on Lorna's site improvement poll discussion here ). So if you are able, and you find PMP useful, please consider a small monthly subscription or one off donation. This is the only way we are funded by users. No annoying adverts or 'pop ups'! ' support pmp'

If you want to use the site you have to sign up - it's easy!  Sign up HERE .
Give yourself a User name - you will be known on site by this name so make it good!   [Hint: Don't use your email address as a user name.]  Your Profile name can be the same as your user name. 
Register with a valid email address - you will need to follow the link in the email we send you, in order to confirm your registration. 
We have been getting loads of nuisance sign-ups, so if you choose a user name like "hgdfhykzz", expect to be deleted :)

We have expanded the Notifications Settings page , so all your settings are visible at one time - the drop-down setting menu was confusing to some.  I hope you like it!  [To check your settings for which notifications you receive, go to your Account Settings, Notifications tab.]
