2012 Calender
« on: September 12, 2011, 01:16:19 PM »
Yah, it's that time already! I forgot all about it till TOMMY'S sent me a pm! LOL

I'm wondering it anyone else is interested in doing the calendar. I'm willing too, but figured I would let someone else have the chance to do it if they want. 

If not, you guy's can start sending me "1", ONE, pic (lol) of your favorite Pinto shot. Send them in their original form. Meaning don't shrink them down for emailing. I have Comcast internet so I can handle large files. The bigger the pic, the better it comes out on the calendar. So again, 1 big pic of your car. Set your camera to it's highest pic setting.

I'm going to have you guy's send them to myhrdly@gmail.com  That way I can keep them separate from my normal email address. :D

I'm not sure what we will do if I get more then 12 pics yet. Maybe do to calendars? Either that or share pages? Will figure that out when the time comes. :D

Ok, one last time. ONE pic from EACH person wanting to be in the calendar. :D So if you have more then one car, pick your favorite and send a pic of it! :D

If there's a space for me, I have one with a nice lake in the background... I know I'm getting to be quite the calendar hog here, but I'll go ahead and send the pic and if you pick it, wonderful... if you don't I'm ok with that. Ruby says, "Pick me! Pick me!" lol :lol:

Ok, someone had an idea to do a this years calendar as a 40th Anniversary Calendar. Using cars from the big car shows, like Knotts, the Stampede, and Carlisle. (sp)  Of course there would be one month set aside for TOMMY'S. He was the one that got this ball rolling you know!!  ;D

So you guy's want to do something like that?  If so, send me pics from those car shows.

OH, almsot forgot. If you want your info with your car, you need to send me, WITH YOUR PIC. your name and the info you want on it. Please keep it short.  Don't send the info separate from your pic. I have a hard time figuring out who is who. That and make sure you send your user name along with your pic and info.

ALSO, ONE MORE TIME. I NEED BIG pictures! I mean they need to fill my whole screen, or close to it. Little pics are not good for the calendar. I can't blow them up, like I can shrink a big one down.

I really don't know with out haveing the camera in my hands. I just know that mine has a setting that I can choose several picture sizes that it will shoot in. 

I would say even maybe 600 x 400 would be ok. I'm just using that number for an example size. Your camera may shoot in 600x800 or 400x600, etc. etc. etc.  Or maybe if you have 3 or 4 small ones I can put them all on one page, instead of one large one. Just make sure you send them all in one email with your user name and what you want to say on the calendar page.

If we get a lot of submissions of cars that didn't go to a 40th Anniversary Show, I may do 2 calendars. This all depends on how much time I have to work on it too. A lot has changed in the last year and I am pretty busy with other projects, and my boys! (mini horses) That and my work hours zoop! LOL  We will have to play it by ear. No matter what, a calandar will be made! :D

I think doing the calendar using the 40th Anniversary theme is perfect.This has definitely been the year of the Pinto.Rob(rally2) has some really cool graphics that need to be on it,(maybe the cover,or smaller on each page.One is the new PCCA logo which has the Pinto logo in it,and the other is the 40th anniversary logo.

I say that Becky's 71 that was at Carlisle should be the first Pinto honored in the calendar. Her car was recognized to be the epitomy of what a Pinto was meant to be. Since she & Ruby were recognized so much I think it is only fitting.

It's all in the camera's settings. If you don't have and owners manual, so a google search for one. That would be your best bet. I can't really help unless it is a Canon Powershot! LOL That is what I have! :D

This may help to simplify the question regarding image size. The size of a photo quality print increases as the megapixel (MP) size increases. As an example, a 3MP digital image will create a photo quality print 6.82" wide x 5.12" tall. In contrast, an 8MP digital image will create a photo quality print 10.88" wide x 8.16" tall. Simply stated, try to send in a digital image with your camera set to capture photos at 8MP or higher. The larger the MP size, the larger the picture. BTW, file size also increases as MP size increases, so I would think an 8MP to 10MP digital image would be about the right size. Hope that helps.

So far I have mainly got non 40th Anniversary show cars. So I am doing one on non 40th cars.

If you do have some pictures of the show cars, please let me know in the email it is one from a show and what show it is from.
That way I can keep the 2 calendars seperate. Now if I don't get enough of the show car pictures, I will most likely just
make one calendar in a 40th theme and just mention somewhere on that month, that the car is from this show or that show. Make
sense?

Can you send them to my myrdly@gmail.com address, and put 4Oth in the subject line!

Oh, anyone sending pics of of a show, please put 40th in the subject line and also in the email include what show it was at.

As far as a deadline, how about Oct. 15th. That will give me the end of Oct. to work on them and hopefully get them done by mid November. I hope that will give me enough time! :D LOL

I would think that would give everyone enough time to order and receive their calendars before Jan 2012! I think it only take about a week to week and a half for
cafepress to send them out.

If you are talking about doing the calendar myself, I do. I make it on Cafe Press. Then just share the link in the PCCA store. Easy Peasy! LOL The hard part is getting all the pics and the info people send for them, on the picture.  A lot of photoshop time! That is the time consuming part. Maybe next year we will do just a picture calendar with no user info! LOL :D

He's long since vanished from the site. I think the last time he was around here was in 2007. Still think was he did was horrible & it's not a shocker to me that he did go away, as there has gotta be a target with his name all over it.

Sorry if this has been covered before, but being a new member here, I had a question about submitting photos.

Are we able to send in pics of our own? Or is it like a nomination type deal? I have some pretty nice pics of mine, but I don't want to submit them if I am not supposed to / not allowed.

Thanks, and I will keep my eye out for when they come out!

No, for now we don't do a nomination type selection. There isn't enough people that submit, to have to worry about that! LOL  What I have been doing is either sharing a months page, or maybe even doing 2 calendars if I get to many submitions. If I do 2 calendars, some cars may be used in each calendar or sometimes I just throw random Pintos in there that I have take pictures of. So it may be a surprise to someone that didn't submit one! LOL

Send your pic to myhrdly@gmail.com  Just make sure to include your user name and what you want said on the calendar. Keep your info short though so it doesn't take a lot of space. I have been known to edit some info to make it fit! :D Make sure your photo is fairly big also. It's easier for me to shrink a photo to fit the calendar then it is to blow one up. They come out fuzzy when blown up. If you don't have a big photo, send 4 small ones! That goes for everyone. Becky too! LOL If you don't have larger pics, send me 4 of what you have!!

Thanks for the info. I will send some pics tonight to you for my car, I will send a few and you can either pick or use them all, doesn't matter to me. I will be sure to send a little blurb about the car. The car (a 1980 ESS) was my dad's (he bought it in late 80 with 3,000 miles on it), and has been in the family since. A nice little hand-me-down car  ;D

I also have a whole bunch of pictures from the Carlisle meet, they are just your typical car show pictures, so they may not be that good for the calender, but maybe for the cover or something. Let me know if you want those as well.
