Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

this contest is very interesting, the difficult part for me is to make it contrast with less noise in the photo. Using some editing (level or curves) usually will increase noise - anyway I am new here and this is my first time join the contest - hopefully we can learn from each other.

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

Thanks, 0lBaldy. I appreciate the sentiment. (Although, you may be in a small minority.) As far as being "up to speed", well, I don't think so. Switching from an old object based editor to a layer based one is somewhat challenging, as well as familiarizing myself with the sheer complexity of the Photoshop user interface. Since Adobe was kind enough to offer a trial membership at Lynda.com for registering the product, I am busy watching some of the 160+ hours of videos there for PSCS3. So far, I'm overwhelmed by PS's capabilities, but I'm getting there -- slow but sure. Give me a bit more time... I'll be back!

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

ok, folks, at least a third of this contest is in following the rules/guidelines. think of it as following a client's requests/orders. it's important. there is currently at least one image of the wrong size and i've seen a couple that didnt put their names in the titles of the image, so, check things over again. there's still time to re-submit.

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

For those whose images ended up being 799 x 599. What program were you using (Photoshop 7, Photoshop CS3, Elements...) and how did you save your image (such as save for web)?

I like to figure out if this is a work flow problem or an uploading issue.

THANKS!

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

I cropped it in Photoshop CS3 to 600x800 @ 72ppi and saved it out as a .jpg through Save As... not Save for Web.

The original that I saved out is still 600x800 in my archive but after uploading it to the forum it magically changed, weird right?

I blame Microsoft and Fonts, the usual culprits.

Re: November 2008 Contest Discussion

Same ---CS3 --the file on my PC is sized at 800 X 600 --I didn't know it had changed to 799 X 599 until I got your message. I saved as a straight jpg not save for web.
