Photo Editing And Viewing

"Super Blogger" has been experimenting with Picassa in his blog. I haven't used the program yet but it seems more of a photo viewer/organizer than an editor.

In Linux I use GIMP to do any major editing of photos. It can be weird to use but it has good tools and it is free. There are also Windows and Mac versions.

For viewing photos and doing quick touch ups I like Irfanview. It is only for Windows.

Earthquakes!

The IRIS Seismic Monitor...

allows you to monitor global earthquakes in near real-time, visit seismic stations around the world, and search the web for earthquake or region-related information.


I got this cool link from one of Shogun's old websites.

The Great Mascot Contest/De Grote Wedstrijd van de Mascotte

2 Lazy 2 Blog needs a mascot to represent us. Blog members are invited to create some silly and appropriately lazy pictures of people and/or animals.

Rules:

  1. The contest is open to all members of this blog.
  2. The deadline is May 31st at midnight.
  3. Pictures should consist of photos or artwork that the person has a right to use and post online. Creative Commons photos at Flickr may be fine just make sure that they don't say 'nd' in the license since that means no derivative art can be made.
  4. Pictures should be portrait orientation or almost square so they can be resized and fit into the sidebar.
  5. The pictures must be G rated because we are an all ages group.
  6. Submissions will be emailed to me and posted as anonymous entries if the group agrees to that.

Voting:

  1. Voting takes place June 1 - 5.
  2. Voting will use either my Buster Tests exclusively or a mix of MBT and a mail in form. The first would be easier.

  4. De beelden zouden portretrichtlijn of bijna vierkant moeten zijn zodat kunnen zij resized en geschikt in sidebar.
  5. De beelden moeten geschat G zijn omdat wij een helemaal leeftijdsgroep zijn.
  6. De voorlegging zal aan me worden met de elektronische post verstuurd en zal gepost worden als anonieme ingangen als de groep met dat akkoord gaat.

Stemming:

  1. De stemming vindt 1 - 5 Juni plaats.

Don't Post Contest Submissions Yet

I need to finish the guidelines and send an email out.

Please consider these questions:

Should the submissions be anonymous or should we know who created each one?

Should we use My Buster Tests to vote like we did for the logo? Instead of adding points for member votes we could send our a voting form via email. Alternately we could do the whole vote by email and restrict it to members.

Mascot Contest/Symbool wedstrijd

I will have the rules/guidelines up as soon as possible - sorry for the delay. The deadline is the end of May so you have lots of time.

Basically we will be choosing a mascot for our blog. I will post rules here and will send an email to the group telling people to check the blog.

----

Ik zal zo spoedig mogelijk de regels/richtlijnen omhoog - de droevig voor de vertraging hebben. De uiterste termijn is het eind van Mei zodat hebt u veel tijd.

Fundamenteel zullen wij een symbool voor onze blog kiezen. Ik zal hier regels posten en zal een e-mail naar de groeps vertellende mensen verzenden om blog te controleren.
