When I tried to open the Tiff file it opened with Quicktime and wasn't savable.
Is it a lot larger than the jpeg or are the about the same size just a different format?

The best way to download the images is by rightclicking (or Cmd/Ctrl clicking) on the link and using "Save Target As".

Torture testing
What did we ever do to you Doug!?! Wow, this has the be the ultimate challenge. I am curious to see what the results will be. I have never done an Oil painting before. Does anyone have any links to some good tutorials so I can get an idea of how to achieve an oil painting? Thanks!

I like this one, and i will surely take part in this competition.

Craig Walters 09-01-2005 02:08 PM

well, if Ro's in then i'm out. no way to compete with him :) (just kidding).

but, i do have one small suggestion here. not all of us use photoshop. thus, books on how to use photoshop arent really much of an incentive as a prize to me. now, i dont really enter these to win the prize; i just enjoy the challenge. but, it might make a bit more sense to have something that could be used by ALL the contestants.

frankly, i'm a little embarrassed even bringing this up. i mean, it's a free prize and we're not paying to enter the contest or anything; it's done purely out of the generosity of the moderators, and probably mostly doug. but, the simple logic of it bugs me a bit. and it's not like i've even been a close contender in any of these, but if i were the only one to enter and thus maybe win (no guarantees even if i were the only one to enter since i cant vote for myself :) ), it might be nice to have a prize i would actually make use of.

maybe a plugin that works for all PS type plugin applications, or a retouchpro t-shirt or something that everyone who won could use?

please, i really DO appreciate that there's even any prize at all, and i'd enter most of them even if there werent. but it would just make a bit more sense to me that the winner would actually make use of any prize given, a new car, a trip to the caribbean, a weekend in vegas.... ;)

and doug, thank you for doing all that you do. we love this place.
