2009 Calendars

Post your pics and vids here.

Postby mnp13 » December 6th, 2007, 10:54 am

The 2008's are done, so on to the 2009's!

Please keep the 2009 calendar in mind so that we don't have to scramble come next November.

I'd love to have an even larger selection of pictures for the individual calendar next year. I am very selective on the size and composition of the photos for the individual, so we will be keeping our eyes out for potential images over the course of the year. We have had more than a few non-forum members buy the calendar so I'd like to appeal to a larger audience and high quality is mandatory.

The first, and most important, criteria, is the size of the photo. It is impossible to enlarge a small, low resolution picture to a large, high resolution picture. Literally impossible. After the size, it is the focus (I really hate using blurry pictures in any of the calendars). After the focus it is the composition; especially for the individual one.

As people see good shots in the gallery (or elsewhere) please post in that thread to remind the original poster to email me the picture. Not everyone checks this thread, so telling them in the actual thread makes more sense. Let them know that you think the shot would be good for the calendar - whether it is the "multi" or individual. Too many fantastic pictures of the dogs get "lost" as the months pass. You don't have to post only your dog, if you notice a great picture of someone else's just put them here so I can annoy them into emailing them to me!

The calendars and the shirts are the main financial support of the forum, with the staff making up the difference!

As you take pictures that you like of your dog(s) please email them to me as LARGE as you can - calendar@pitbulltalk.com PLEASE, name your picture the name of your dog!!!!!! It was hard for me to keep track of which dogs I had already used, and as I got more frusterated with the pictures this year I started to give up on the ones that were not named correctly.

So...

PLEASE PUT YOUR DOG'S NAME IN THE FILE NAME.

I repeat....

PLEASE PUT YOUR DOG'S NAME IN THE FILE NAME!!!!!!!

Send the largest version of the images that you have. I have plenty of room in my email account, so don't scale them or change them. If the file is under 2 mb it's probably not big enough for the "one up" calendar, but I can probably use them for the "collage" calendar.

The easiest way for you to get me the full size is to send me the picture file from your camera. Photobucket and other online sites scale them. Your original files are on your computer where ever your picture software puts them when you download them. You can find that info in the preferences for the picture program, or just do a search. Most of those programs create a small version of the picture for fast viewing (and that is NOT big enough for me to use) but then access the large one for printing. Trust me on this one!!

for the 2009 multi calendar I'd like to do a theme every month. For example, athletics, sports, kids, holiday (whatever one you celebrate), goofing around, sleeping, playing, snow... etc. Of course, I can't do that if I don't have enough pictures to choose from! That just might get your dog on multiple pages, but I'm not promising that.

Thanks!

ETA: new address for images

At least one month of the multi calendar will be "Pit Bull Friends" so make sure to send in all of your dogs! (maybe even cats ;) )

Thanks!

The "friends of Pits" don't have to have Pit Bulls in them! any breed is fine!

It's fine to post the pictures here, but the better option is to post in the thread and/or PM the member and have them email it to me. If you post it here, then I have to go to the thread and post or PM them anyway, so you can help me out and skip the extra step!

I really appreciate everyone keeping their eyes peeled for pictures for next year!

Remember to send me all of the full size pictures of your dogs in their Christmas / Hannuka / Solstice / whatever other holiday gear!
