"Thanks BQ" Final Score, 5 Sets to 0, Stellar done a fine job!, even though she's a "Taiwanese Cheapy", and yes!, one of my main aims on this one, was to keep the Racket face as free from clutter as possible!.   :-)

"Thanks Dave!", I think I picked up the term "Photo Bomb" from an anonymous pick quote some years back!, might have to change it now to "Cluster Bombing", I like that one!.

There are programs that allow you to put together Multi Views, some you pay for!, some for free!, but the easy and free method I use, is on my PC, which runs Windows 10, is to, first convert the pics to a uniform size such as 4" x 6", or in my case 3" x 5" using Microsoft Office Picture Manager, then drag & drop them onto a Microsoft Word page, then resize again to fit the page, and use the Windows 10 Snipping Tool to capture the Multi Picture, I hope that makes sense!, and is easy enough to understand, after doing it this way for some time now, it has become a quick and instinctive process for me. :-)

It's Game, set and match AGP.  I like the subtle and minimalistic build approach. Stellar job mate!

Photo bombing AGP. Never heard of such. Nice term. I think you cluster bomb. :^) I like you photo multi views. I don’t know how to do that yet.
