We moved 61 calendars last season so we are planning to do it again!

Start digging through your 2018 archives and scouring your photo capture devices for calendar worthy material. Send high resolution pictures to me (findmeoutside@hotmail.com) before November 30th and I will plan to publish the calendar in early December. And lets get some pics of the small models as well!

More details:

Above 1650x1275 and bigger is even better.

JPG, TIFF, JPEG, PNG, or Bitmap will all work.

Most accounts can send/receive 20-50mb of attachments per message currently but if you need to break your submissions into multiple messages, that is not a problem for me. I am a highly trained email slave.

If you want to limit each message to about 25MB combined, that would be generally safe on both sides.

Most contributors in the past sent 1-4 photos total.

I am planning to hit the 10 dollar mark again (or cheapest LuLu offers) with a 8 1/2x11 landscape page size. Canadian Holidays included of course...

Please put "Calendar" somewhere in the subject line and include the following in your email for each pic:

-Photographers C-Brat username
-General location where the photo was taken
-Name of any C-Dory's in the picture (if it's not obvious)

Last year's version as an example:

Please respond to this post with any questions.

Greg

What's the image ratio used for the calendar images (e.g. 4:3, 3:2, etc.)?

4x3 is closest to their formatting but I can edit most anything to work if the image is of high enough resolution. If you have a good one in mind, send it over full size.

I can edit it myself. Just wanted to know what the image ratio was for cropping.

The 4x3 is a good general guide and I use 1650x1275 as a good baseline for minimum image resolution/size for good results on the standard calendar format we have been using.

There are a few other parameters that I work around including maximum sizes and cropping to work with other format elements including the measures for the image framing and binding that need to be avoided.

White wire-o binding ->Covers .375" at the top of the cover image and bottom of interior images
Hole punched in photo .25" from top edge


We only have eight folks who have submitted photos so far, so keep them coming!

All righty then. It is time. Thank you Greg for doing this again. I'm sure it is great. I just can't see it right now. I'm away from my computer so using the Samsung Tablet, and it won't open the preview. I keep getting this message:
"Need to have Adobe version 9.0.45 or greater. Get Flash" . Pushing the "get flash" button only grts me a repeat of the message saying my device doesn't have Adobe. I just downloaded version 18.?.?.? And it only needs V 9.0. I will have PC access tomorrow. Can't wait. That teaser looks great.

All Righty then, continued:

Really nice job Greg. You have a whole bunch of winners with a knock out cover. Lots of variation too. Excellent value included.
