  • Chain Mail

    OK, I just had this idea, so I'm sure it will have a lot of rough edges. If it works and turns out to be popular, we'll do it better next time

    Not a Challenge, just some fun.

    Send me an email with "Chain Mail" in the subject line. I'll email an image to the first person that emails me. They'll do...something...to that image and email it back to me. Then I'll email that new image to the next person that emails me, and so on.

    A couple of things for this to work:

    1. We can't use JPG, so anyone that chooses to participate should be able to receive (and return) emails with a TIF file attached of size 2-5 meg (just a guestimate)
    2. Several people will be waiting their turn, so when you get your turn try not to take too long.
    3. Don't resize or resample to a different resolution
    4. Flatten your image before sending back.
    5. Leave it as a TIF file

    Once demand has died off, I'll announce that this version is closed, and post the original and what we came up with here. Don't post any of your interim images, at least until this version is closed.

    Feel free to ask questions here.

      OK, I'm sending the file to the first responder as I type this.

      Only two participants so far. Anyone else want to play?

        What a creative idea Doug! Can't wait to see how drastically the image changes! This should be a lot of fun!

                  Come on guys. You only have to add one thing to the picture. It's kind of fun and it's turning out pretty cool. Where's our album cover designers? This should be a breeze for you guys.

                    I'd like to take part in this, but at the present time I can't send a decent size file.

                      This is why I started the FTP thread over in the Software forum. If you know how to FTP, I've set up a way to do this. Plus, FTP will be the way we do any future versions of this. The email thing was just too problematic.

                      Even with FTP, though, I'll still need an email declaring interest (that's how I track who to send it to, and in what order).

                        Doug,
                        Did I get it right?.....Am I only supposed to send an e-mail to start with?....To the same address I usually send the challenges?

                          Yes, you did it correctly, even the "Chain Mail" in the title
                          I'll be in touch when it's your turn.

                              Good idea on using FTP. I was wondering about that as I was sending the file back to you. It would definitely be better!

                                Another chainmail experiment. These are not Challenges, they're just fun. Our first try at this was fun. We got a great image, and some excellent feedback.

                                I learned a couple of things from the initial foray. We'll try handling things a little differently this time and see how it goes....

                                What is Art Tag Quilt?
                                by T Paul
                                This is a slight variation on Art Tag. Instead of everyone working on the same image in turn, this time everyone gets their own section of the same image to work on at the same time.

                                The Process

                                I take an image and divide it up into sections. Each player will get their...

                                There are so many viruses out now, and these people are getting really crafty. The one I received today has got me amazed. Be on guard for this type of ploy, addressed to you.

                                I received this email today and it came with the typical virus attachment. The sender is "[email protected]"....

                                Okay folks the chain mail project is on again, but for now on these projects will fall under the section of ART TAG. ART, because we are creating art, and TAG because it goes from one person to the next.

                                I must emphasize that these are not Challenges, they're just fun projects. The first...
