I was wondering if it was possible to do some of the runner up pictures on teashirts. I particularly liked the July/august runner up and If it was on a teeshirt or a poster I would deffinately buy it.

Perhaps... I was thinking notecards and prints, if people wanted them. With photographer's permission, of course. We'll see.

Notecards would be a little small for me. I'd be more interested in the pictures being blown up a little as I'm partially sighted and note cards are a little too small.

I may be able to do small prints on zazzle. It all comes down to the quality/size of the photos as they were submitted to me.

I'm afraid I'm only really interested in Poster sized pictures or teeshirts.

Well, the best I will be able to do is small posters, based on the image quailty I have to start with.

As for T-shirts, we'll see.

Either way, I have no time to devote to it until after the holidays.

I know this is a bit off topic, but I think that another fundraising idea would be a coffee table book of Ace pictures, if anyone felt that ambitious.  I would buy one!

CafePress does do books. With RI's permission, I will look into it... but I can't really devote any time to it until the new year. :(

How do you resize photos? The pics I take with my digital camera are HUGE! I tried to resize them on publisher, then I saved it, and downloaded it onto cyberpawz. They came out like this:
They're ok if I just download them onto cyberpawz's site, without resizing them, though. Are these pics ok? Can I just give you the links to my pics if I want to submit them?

Actually, I -want- them huge.

I really would prefer to be sent the digital image right off the camera, with no editing on your end. I'd prefer to do the editing myself. :)

My e-mail can handle it. :)

I have a couple of photos of the same rat - one when she's a baby, and another older.   If both photos were good enough to be in the final selection, would they both be eligible since they're of the same rat?

Don't want to submit any redundent pics. :)

It really depends on how many submissions I get in the end.

When I narrow down the pictures, I print them all out (about 2" x 3") and choose based on photo quality. I don't have anyone's names attached to them when I select them... so, theoretically, if both pictures are good enough, yeah, it's certainly possible they could both end up being in contention.

Then, they'd have to get past the voters. ;D

When I get my sorry butt in gear and start narrowing them down.

Work has been very stressful lately, and when I'm home, I just haven't been in the mood. :-\

I'll try to get started this week. Hopefully I'll have it together by the end of the month...

Wow! Fantastic photos this year - voting has been SO SO hard. Can't wait to see which ones win.

Suebee - thanks for all your hard work. I just have one question which isn't even really a question. I just wondered what the copyright laws are regarding that picture with the Ben & Jerry's in it? If that pic wins, are we allowed to publish it for sale? Might be worth checking out?

Ok, more a suggestion than a question...since the forum has been down for a few days, plus not everybody is even aware the calendar voting has begun, how about posting about the calendar in Rat Tails?  Hopefully it'll generate more votes, especially knowing voting has begun. :)

Sorry, I like to keep all the calendar information together in one place, instead of lumped with everything else.

Honestly, if people miss out on voting, it's their own fault for not paying attention.

At the risk our sounding rude... hee hee... I spend a lot of time creating a lot of stuff on the forum that gets completely ignored on a regular basis, and it's extremely frustrating... so, well... I 've had to make the decision, for my own sanity, to not cater to those who don't pay attention. If ya want in on the fun, ya gotta keep your eyes open. ;D

Too early would be -before- I ask for them. ;)

Start collecting, though... it's coming. ;D

I've had a super-busy April, between Jo-Ann stuff (Class Preview Day is this weekend!) and my one and only major design client (launching a new record label is exhausting!), so I haven't even had time to think about the 2006 calendar... but once things settle a little, I'll post a call for entries. ;D

At this point, the way my August is going, not until September.
