    Oh, I guess I should say. We all volunteer to exchange pictures (usually no more than six people but I don't see why there couldn't be more). We all mail our picture (polaroid) to you (the same amount as there are people participating) and you redistribute to everyone that sent one in.

    Yeah! lets do it. we can call it "DIRTS filthy polaroid exchange." If anyone is interested, PM me and we can see how many heads want to partake. Hopefully not too many as polaroid film aint cheap. maybe around 10 or so.

    So, every one sends in X-amount of photos (X being equal to the # of participants.) then I redistribute them so that everybody gets one of each. Is this correct?

    Except it would be x-1 so whoever sends in their picture doesn't get it back.

    And I love the name you've given this exchange! :lol:

    Shall we say, ANY type of Polaroid process, then? A lift or a transfer or an SX-70 manip?

    Oh I"m in on this one for sure!!

    What about scanned Sx-70 prints enlarged? I like to do some photoshop manip on mine as well as the sx-70. I've even printed a few out and then handcolored them after that. Would that be acceptable? ;)
