    Well, you need special digicam with 300dpi resolution... lol

    Corpuscle: Put your pic into Photoshop and go to Image > Image Size. If you need any \'help\' (followed by a nudge and a wink....) with Photoshop, PM me....;)

    Yeah, how about letting Gamers Quest flog them? And can contributors reserve a copy...:D

    Wow can you believe it I have been asked to submit something, I\'ve just done my resizing and e-mailed them back to Borg. Hopefully I have the right of it. Sorry Borg I do not have a zip program on my pc though.

    Well, I\'m honored and shocked to have been emailed on this so I guess if I\'m getting in it I will have to buy it and force all of my friends to buy a copy.

    p.s. Before you ask, no, they are not including the Talonlol

    Oh, I don\'t think there will be any hope for me...even if everyone does follow the instructions.

    HOWEVER, if you want your mini in there, I\'d recomend it ;)

    Thanks Borg for getting this all set up, this should be fun! I\'m just glad I\'ll be able to help. (and now, no one can keep my photos out of the thing!!)

    Please note in the email that we can\'t guarantee a spot, but I expect we\'ll be stuffing as many photos in as we can. However just getting an email means you have at least one of the top minis from the last 2 years, so great work! :D

    Have a qiuick sqizz at the tinterweb and you should be able to pick up free downloads of zip programmes. Microsoft website maybe?

    I realise that I can get it to download it is just that I never send files across the net and have never needed it until now. Oh well I\'ve sent the e-mails now.

    Seems I have to send some photo... :)
    Maybe I\'ll take better pictures with my new 6.0Mp camera... hope that Ericj mailbox can resist to the assault :)

    About zipfiles... I can recommend a free utility, easy to use, fast and support almost all compression format:

    Cheers Mike.
    But wouldn\'t it make more financial sense to have a UK distributor. Im sure I wasnt the only one put off by the postage.


    How is it decided what pics go in.
    ie Will someone with 10 minis above score 9 get all 10 in while pushing out someone with average 8.5 ??
    Are entries limited per person ??
    It could easily end up a showcase for the top ten painters....not entirely a bad thing but not quite fair on the others.

    I think they need to collect many pictures, then discard the low quality photos and work on the other.
    Then, as Ericj wrote:

    Klute - Borg and I have discussed some of this and the decisions haven\'t been made 100% yet.

    First we are very aware this time of postage costs relative to the weight of the book itself. Last year was just heavy enough so that it fell into a much higher postage rate, which we are strongly hoping to avoid in one way or another, we have a couple ideas floating around.

    As for decision process on photos. That\'s not resolved either, mostly because we haven\'t yet seen what we have to choose from! However, I expect we will attempt to stray away from pages and pages in a row of just a couple artists, although at the same time, I would expect certain painters will have a larger presence than others. Heck, I already have high res photos of all 20 of mine that qualified :D

    Right now we\'ve taken a couple steps to start the thing, and really need to give it a little time before final decisions can be made!

    As for UK distribution...that doesn\'t involve me :)
