2013 Calendar
« on: September 24, 2012, 07:41:32 AM »

It's that time of the year again, if you want to be on this year's calendar please email me your photos to... 2013AGPC@gmail.com as soon as possible.

I will be putting six photos on each calendar, so there will be different calendars, I'll show you them all as they are done.  Cost will be 3.50 per calendar that includes p&p and will be available from the shop.

The photos that you send through must be big, so set your cameras on the biggest and best settings, take as many photos as you want, send me through the one that you want to appear on the calendar and I'll tell you if it's ok.  You have to remember that it MUST BE CLEAR so if you tuck your elbows in to your waist, take a deep breath and then click the button, it should hold the camera steady.  Please wait until your camera has focused properly as well, we don't want blurred photos.  Email is the only way that I can get a photo, if you send it through pm, it won't be big enough or clear enough to take off and print.

You know what Soo...bugger it, let's do a calendar of everything!

So, if you have a cat, dog, mouse, bird, spider (gulp) whatever, send me your photos, I'll make you up individual calendars, how's that.  So, all your pets on one calendar.  If you have only one Grey, no worries, just get lots of photos of him/her I'm going to do about 6 photos on one calendar.  So there we go.

Get your photos sent in to me and I'll start work right away, you can have them as soon as they are ready, no waiting for Christmas! lol.

This is what the calendar will look like(ish)



I am going to go for six photos max on a calendar otherwise it's going to look too cramped I think.  It's A4 size and it will be laminated.  3.50 incl. p&p buy it from the shop when it's ready.    :loud   Rickkkkkkk

They really have to be taken on the largest and best settings.  Otherwise they just won't print properly.

No Jules, they won't be big enough.  They have to come straight from the camera and email them, otherwise the quality and size is reduced and it will look dreadful when printed out.

Jules, take your photo on your iPhone or whatever and as long as it is sharp and clear it should be ok.  what I meant by not be able to take from photo bucket, it will be too small in size.  what you need to do is, take a photo and email it to me straight from the camera rather than go through photo bucket or any other third party site, then I should get it as the original size.   I just need photos that are the biggest size that you can take and email them to me at that original size.
