    Hi everyone,
    Happy New Year everyone! We hope you're all ready for the first challenge of the year. The January '08 theme be "Late Night". Hopefully those who had some fun with the November and December challenges will enjoy finishing off the theme. Good luck everyone and as always please don't forget to read the boring, but important stuff down below :).

    We're also proud to announce that we have a sponsor for the December Challenge. Quik Pod has agreed to sponsor the Midday challenge. The Quik Pod DSLR is the world's first monopod with a grip handle at the base. It is lightweight (9 ounces), has a quick release camera clip and a built-in wide angle mirror for viewing overhead shots or self-portraits. The handle at the base doubles as an extendable handheld grip for cameras, camcorders or lighting holder and provides a low center of gravity foot for support when used as a monopod.

    Comes with a carry bag, hiking clip, wrist strap, aluminum end cap and rubberized monopod adapter tip. Extends to 53" and contracts to 18". Recommended camera weight limit of 2 lbs.

    *150KB will be taken as the “size on disk” and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as oppposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger then they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    Crop or resize or save with more compression.

    When the software asks what quality to save pick a lower setting.

    :lol::lol:

    btw: I use this website sometimes: http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

    pretty easy to use.



    This is what the FAQ says: 'Each registered member is only able to vote once. A member who has been registered with TPF for less than 10 days, and has fewer than 25 posts on TPF, is not eligible to vote in any poll, including The Photo Challenge.'

    So submitting ánd voting won't be a problem for you.
