    Calendar 2020 - still need photos !

    Thanks to everyone who has submitted photos so far. Unfortunately a number of them are unsuitable and have been "rejected" by the Calendar software as being of insufficient quality - even though I thought they would look good in the calendar. Also I have been sent some professional photos which were crystal clear and pin-sharp (thanks Craig) but which were also rejected as being too big ! Cant b**** win can you ! (the large file images were re-sized and are being used)

    So we want the Goldilocks image - not too big , not too small !

    As a result I am still 4 images short for the calendar - which needs 13 (including a cover shot).

    Please scour your cameras / computers for suitable Stratos photos - what about the social events held earlier this year ? - shots with cars and people would be good.
    File size preferably 4MB up to 10 or 12 MB

    Please do your best and send me a few more images

    Thanks

    Peter,
    Making the large ones smaller in PhotoShop is easy.
    Anything not too short of 4MB, could be increased in PhotoShop to make the cut?

    Hi Chris - I'm not Photoshop savvy - nor do I have a copy which I understand has to be rented these days. I didn't know you could "grow" the files but I'm thinking there must be a limit to how much they can be expanded.

    If I come across a possible candidate file perhaps you could look at it for me?

    Thanks

    Re: Calendar 2020 - still need photos !

    Also needed are any dates of events you may want to add to the Club Calendar - eg if you are planning a Garage Day and know when you want to hold it? Also I'll try and include as many relevant Motoring Events as I reasonably can - but could all members please let me know of any you particularly want included.

    I'm hoping to complete the calendar within the next week - so there is a deadline !

    Thanks everyone

    Peter

    I've got some photoshop skills.
    If you get stuck and want to see what can be done with one then feel free to fire it over to me.

    Re: Calendar 2020 - still need photos !

    The shots I submitted were only phone images that were run through Photoshop and/or Lightroom which is why they grew significantly in size.
    As an example the image of Nigel Wilkinson's Hawk from the calendar a couple of years back started off as a 135kb image from Facebook which once processed using the above software ended up at 4.75Mb.
    For the oversize images I simply crop/resize them using Microsoft Paint of all things.

    You save them onto 5.25 inch floppy disks or 3.5 inch ones?
