Title: Member gallery Now open for business.
Post by curious_aardvark on Jan 20th, 2010 at 2:35pm
I've had a play and I'm fairly confident I can now add extra members pics to the members gallery.

Few new  rules.
No more than 10 images each - if you;ve only got 1 0r 2 - that's fine, just no more than 10.
Images should be 800x600 or close as you can. (if you don't know how to do this check out the useful tips post above for photogadget resize link).  
Images MUST be slings you've personally made.

Once you've got your images - zip or rar them into a single file and contact me for my email address to send the zips to.

AFAQ (anticipated frequently asked questions)

1) why only 10 images - A: because I have to upload them one at a time and I'm not doing more than ten per person - live with it.
2) what if I get better and want to change one of my images for a new one. A: email it to me with the one you want to lose and I'll change them - same for adding images if you have less than ten.
3) can I have descriptions under the pictures. A: yep, but keep it short - I have to type them.
4) Can i just send you photobucket or flickr links ? A: No I'd have to download, resize and then upload. And life's too short, email me original images only :-)  
5) I'm a crap photographer - what if my pics are really dark. A: I'll do my best to sort them out, but don't expect miracles lol
6) what about other stuff I've made - atlatls, knives, didgeroos etc. A: Not at the moment  - but I'm thinking about a non-sling section.

7) what if nobody discovers this topic. A: then I'll have a relaxing weekend ;-)

What about pictures of us actually slinging?

I just had a look at the gallery. Great slings from Rockman.

Apart from him, though, nobody seems to have sent any pics. Is that possible? I mean, we have so many gifted and inventive sling makers. Are they all too shy to post their creations?

i bet only a quarter of use even know there's something on the home page other than the tutorials, not to mention the gallery. few people even look at this section.

Yes, I think you are right. I must say, however, that I would visit the gallery much more often if I knew there were some new slings or pics of slinging to look at.

I've got a bunch of new opnes to post, just seem to keep running out of time at the moment.
Given how crap business was last year, I'm making the most of the improvement this year.

It will get done :-)
