It has been brought to my attention that some people may be having problems with the size requirements for the pics.
1) minimum 230
1800 to 3300 X 2550
2) saved as a level 10 jpg (PhotoShop) or corresponding compression level in other editor.
3) No larger than 4MB
4) accompanied by submitters real name and forum username
It didn't click before, but should have. Nost images will need to be interpolated to the larger sizes we need for the calendar. I have an 8 megapixel camera and I had to interpolate mine a bit. Don't let this stop you from sending in your pics. If your camera is at least 3 megapixels...send your photo. I can interpolate the images for you to the appropriate size (and would prefer to do it that way cause I have some specialized software for interpolation, and the results will be better if I use the original file. If you want to do it yourself....you can simply increase the size of the image by 10% in steps until you reach your target size. If you have the option, use bicubic interpolation. In PS in the resize menu you would change the input from pixels to percent and use 110% until you reach your target size. It's really simple and gives good results.
Remember provided your image is at least 3mega pixels, go ahead and send it, don't worry about re-sizing it, I'll do it for you
If your unsure of what your megapixels are or your using a scanned film image etc....multiply the length by the width (in pixels) of the image to get your total pixel count. 1 million pixels = 1 megapixel. So if your image has at least 3 million pixels (total pixel count) we can use it.

by October 20th to have a shot at getting your image in the Calendar!!
