    Yes Peter,
    Send me the photos that you need reducing or any that are a little under the file size limit.
    Do the calendar people advise the ideal file sizes (pixels per inch. and physical size, see attached) and whether CMYK or RGB?:
    For litho print, 300 pixels per inch is the minimum, but I suspect this is digital CMYK.
    Consistent crop proportions would be good for all the images.

    Not for a true Yorkshireman. Still a few years use in it yet. Just got to maintain a good head of stream in the boiler and maintain the temps in the valves.

    Thanks Chris - there is no specific technical guideline supplied - although I'm sure they would tell me if I asked. What happens is that you download a picture to be used and then try to slot it into the calendar month template , and if the picture file is too small it will flag a message - effectively rejecting the image.

    Now that I know picture files can be "boosted" I can re-look at some of the pictures I've already got and forward them to you .Since you first suggested it - for the sake of consistency I'll send them to you (Jim hope you don't mind !)

    Not at all.

    I might have just photoshopped my car into all the pics anyhow

    No more photos needed ! Calendar now completed and printed and as at today Mark (Redline) and I packed them all into envelopes together with an SEC lapel badge to be sent out to all members. They should be with you soon - although for overseas members it will of course take longer.

    Thanks to all those who contributed their pictures - I've tried to use as many as I can (with as much variety in colour, location and type as I can) but of course there are only 12 months in a year so I can only use 13 photos - including the front cover - before you say anything Norm! Sorry to those who submitted photos that I had no space to use. However I hope you all like the end result - the calendar (and badge) will be with you soon.

    Peter
