Hey all! It's that time of year again to start collecting second-string pictures for the calendar. I'm going with last years plan and using 6OTM winners, but I need backups in case people don't get me their pictures on time.

Second-string entries need to have a resolution of 3002x2000 or higher. Anything less won't work because I'll either have to stretch the image or leave a ton of whitespace on the calendar page, both of which look shitty.

How to discover an image's resolution

On Windows...
Right-click the image >> Properties >> Details >> "Image -- Dimensions"

On Mac OS
Right-click the image >> Get Info >> More Info >> "Dimensions"

On Linux
If you're using Linux but don't know to how to discover an image's resolution you should probably just give up.

In Chrome
Right-click image >> Open Image in New Tab >> Look at the tab title (it's in parens)
If you can't see the resolution at this point then... Right-click image >> Inspect Element >> Look for "width" and "height" attributes in the HTML.

In Firefox
Right-click image >> View Image >> Look at the tab title (it's in parens)

Any other browser
Figure it out yourself using my instructions for Chrome and Firefox and deductive reasoning

How to get me your image
The following services should support high resolution uploads:

dropbox.com (make your image available to the public)
Google Drive (make your image available to the public)
flickr.com (need a Pro account)
photobucket.com (need a paid account)
massivebagofdicks.com (must love dicks)


If you still can't figure it out just email the picture: tlhaas at gmail

Rules

Submit your image (3002x2000 or higher) by November 15, 2012.
Voting starts November 15.
Depending on the number of images we need for the calendar dictates the number of "winning" places. This is a dynamic number.
Winning, or even placing, in the contest doesn't guarantee you'll make it in the calendar. Priority is given to 6OTM winners. This mean we may use ZERO images from this contest. You guys are competing for second-string spots.
You may only submit one image for voting.
If I don't have a high res copy of your image posted you're not in the running.


Right now I'm waiting on 3 pictures, and we haven't decided a winner for November or December yet. So that's a total of 5 possible spots (as of 11/6/12).

Second-string entries for voting

I understand last year because enough pictures weren't submitted we resorted to a 6OTM calendar, (and it may be too late this year) but why not have people submit pictures again and fill in 6OTM winners in months were there is no chosen picture by the deadline?

Maybe I'm just selfish and want to be in the calendar, but why not give other members, besides 6OTM, a better chance to be in the calendar.

I have no problem with how/who puts together the calendar, just how the pictures are chosen. If we start off with 6OTM winners and fill in from the rest of the crew if some don't provide a picture, that's a large pool of people with a very small opening. If we start with everyone on 6crew, and then throw in 6OTM winners on blank months, we have a much smaller pool of members for a small opening.

That's totally a valid argument and you're not the only one that feels this way. I completely understand where you're coming from. Let me explain the situation.

Kristen was in charge of 6crew calendars for 2009, 2010, and 2011, and managed the collection of and voting on calendar photos from users. Last year nobody sent her pictures to vote on so she abandoned the project. ('http://www.6crew.com/forum/showthread.php?21815-2012-Calendar-Canceled')

I thought that continuing the calendar was important so I decided to streamline the entire process (voting, printing, payment, and shipping) since that seemed to be a large source of stress for Kristen. Instead of trying to do it her way again I just rolled the photo voting into the 6OTM process. We need 12 photos for the calendar and there are 12 winners of 6OTM that the community elects. I know that when I vote each month I'm thinking "Which photo would look best in the calendar?" as well as "Who has the biggest dick?"

So there it is man. Kristen quit because nobody sent her photos, and even though members clamored for a calendar, nobody stepped up to the plate. (Don't worry, I'm quite aware of how wonderful I am.) I love the 6crew calendar, but doing it her way is just too much work. You'd be surprised how tedious I can be to organize shit like this can be. The photos are still voted on by the public, but it's no longer a separate process.

If you'd like to organize the calendar yourself you're more than welcome to (sincerely). I do it my way because it's the best solution I can think of that has the lowest impact, but if you did took over it'd be even easier. I'll be honest with you; given the number of calendars that actually sell (maybe 15 last year) I don't really think it's worth all the effort of the way you're suggesting.

Entries need to have a resolution of 3375x2067 3008x2000 or higher (higher is preferred). Anything less won't work because I'll either have to stretch the image, which pixelates the image, or leave a ton of whitespace on the calendar page which looks shitty.

If don't know how to tell a picture's resolution just right-click the image on your computer and "View Properties." If the image is on the Web already view it directly in the browser and look at the page/tab title. It should say filename.extension (resolution), or something like that.

kk. Submit them now. Submissions end November 15 and we'll vote after that.

Ok, im sorry. I know im not running this whole ordeal. But im getting very annoyed with how many keep posting photos that are not the correct resolution minimum. The minimum resolution that can be accepted is posted in the first post like two or three times. See above qoute.

Im sure if im annoyed Tim is probably getting there. If you have a submission...right click on the damn thing. Hit properties and the resolution will be shown right there. If the said resolution does not meet the requirements. Dont post it. Its that simple. Infact. If you take the mouse and hover over an image file a small pop up will appear and show you the resolution 98% percent of the time.

Thanks and sorry for the rant. Tim, ill post the one Marc wants to use. Or email it to you in hi-res.

LOL. At first I thought you were going to blast the picture selection process like 1Kris06 did... haha.

TBH, I was a little frustrated, but I tend to take my general tech knowledge for granted and forget that at one point in my life I had no idea what any of this meant.

For the uninitiated here's an example of that shows you different resolutions relative to the full size of the calendar page (3375x2750).
http://i.imgur.com/DkeSB.png

Obviously all that extra space on the page (white space) would look stupid, so you need to fill it. Stretching the picture to fit the size of the calendar results in horrendous pixelation (blurry look). This happens because you're asking your image software (in my case GIMP) to make up information it doesn't have. A picture that is 1024x768 has 786,432 individual cells (pixels) with a color in them (zoom into a picture in MS paint as far as you can and you'll see what I'm talking about) and this 786,432 is a fixed number. So when you increase the size of a picture you're using the same fixed amount of color data, but you're spreading it out more. It's the same concept as making juice from concentrate; if you add more water to the concentrate than the recipe calls for it waters down the juice. In this case color data (pixels) is concentrate and water is the image size. The only way to get MORE concentrate is to start with a bigger picture from the start (this can go all the way back to camera settings).

However, if you give me an image that's too BIG, I can shrink it with no pixelation because all I'm doing is telling GIMP to remove data (pixels) I don't want.

Because every picture I get for the calendar isn't the exact same resolution there are minute size/shape differences. Through trial and error (because I'm not smart) I find the best resolution for ALL the images in the calendar and crop/shrink so they're all the same.

This is why the calendar last year looked good instead of like something a 4th grader pieced together for a science fair. :)

@1Kris06: Upload the high res image to imgur and then post here.

@bpjones: Photobucket's max resolution for free accounts is 2048x1536. Upload the high res image to imgur and post here. Also, only one picture please.

@Stl: Neither of those pictures are big enough (speaking of which... one submission only please). You can't make a file have a higher resolution than it originally has and retain image clarity; you can only shrink them. If the image on your computer meets the minimum resolution requirements then upload it to imgur and then post up here.

@ashley6: I know you emailed me the pictures, but when you decide on an image upload it to imgur and then post up. :)


To everybody else....
Imgur.com provides free hosting with no resolution restrictions. Please upload your images there.
