Wow...there's some nice pics here! I want to make sure you guys are aware that you need to email me the photos. I cannot "grab" the photos directly from here.

Also, I'm debating whether to create two separate Turbo calendars so as to give most of you a chance to have your photo that meets the resolution requirement selected or just concentrate on one calendar with only the best photos selected?

Meanwhile I'll look into creating 2 separate Turbo calendars and see how it works.

I want to wrap up creating the calendars by this Wednesday.

Below are couple examples why I can't use some photos that were submitted even though they look great.

If the width of the car within the photo is much wider than the height then the front/rear of the car gets clipped when adding to a calendar.





Also, if the photo is small or has low resolution (less than 150 dpi) then it becomes pixelated as shown below that was enlarged and cropped.

How's about a "wide screen" calendar?? It seems all of my pictures of the car take up most of the width of the picture.

Sigh...are you aware that when you upload the photos to PP it's resolution gets reduced by a large margin? That's why I cannot use any photos directly from here unless they are emailed to me with no reduction in resolution.

Don't hold back emailing the pics...never know if can be used or not.

Sorry about the aspect ratio of my first one.

What aspect ratio works best?

I think once cropped, this one will work.




Again, I e-mailed you a higher res copy. Thanks!

I have not received any pics from some of you folks with pics shown below. As I said before I cannot grab the pics directly from here due to low resolution. See post #29 for explanation.

Mike, I emailed yesterday to: "miked930 at att dot net"

Is this the correct email address?

mooney265,

Yes, I received your photos yesterday. Will you please remove my email address from your post above since I don't want future spammers to grab it.

I should have been more clear so I reworded what I meant to say "I have not received any pics from some of you folks with pics shown below. As I said before I cannot grab the pics directly from here due to low resolution. See post #29 for explanation."

Thanks.

Okay gang...I've decided that tomorrow (Jan 15th, 6pm Central) is the last day for me to accept photos for the Turbo calendars. There will be two versions of Turbo calendars.

Thanks to all who submitted.

I did not take this photo, but I think it's great. If it's liked, I'm sure the guy that took would be open to it being used.

Agree that is a cool color and photo. It's owner of photo needs to submit a photo to be considered for a calendar.
