SUBMISSION PERIOD FOR PHOTOS FOR THE MOSIAC IS NOW CLOSED.
It is time to start collecting the wonderful pictures of you!
Here are some things to keep in mind while exercising your own creativity. Your photo in the mosaic will be small. If you want Leonard to be able to recognize your face if one day he sees you on the street, you need to send a head shot like this:
However, perhaps you want to be a bit creative and send a message to Leonard about what his music means to you or what your favorite song is or say something more about yourself than can be shown in a simple head shot. In that case, you might consider wearing a hat in honor of Our Man's love of hats or a costume or clothing to represent one of his songs (does anyone have a blue raincoat?). You can also do an over-the-shoulder shot where you look back over your shoulder towards the camera or some other unique pose. Be creative but remember the idea behind this is to show Leonard all his many fans, so pictures of objects won't work. Finally, what is most important about any photo you send is that it be clear and crisp.
Because many are not Photoshop wizards, we will have people who will try to adjust your photo to fit the requirements below. We can do some cropping of photos to make them square. However, we cannot make a blurry picture clear.
Here are the basic requirements for your photo:
1. The photo should be square or as square as possible.
2. The photo can be any size as long as the file size is between 100KB and 1MB.
3. The photo can be in the following formats: jpeg, jpg or bmp.
4. Your photo should have the file name of your full name. For example: jarkkoarjatsalo.jpg.
5. The photo should be in color only.
6. The photo should be a clear, crisp shot of you. Send your photos to this email address
as an attachment and include your full name in the email:firstname.lastname@example.org
You will receive a response that your photo has been received. DO NOT SEND ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS OR CONCERNS TO THIS EMAIL ADDRESS.
If you need to correspond with someone, send all your questions or concerns to Marie
If your photo meets all the requirements, it will be included in the mosaic. If your photo needs adjustments, Laura and Pam will attempt to make those adjustments. If your photo CANNOT be adjusted to meet the requirements, you will receive an email from me telling you what the problem is. In this case, we will do our best to assist you in producing a photograph that can be used in the mosaic. If you do not hear from me, you may assume that your photo will be part of the mosaic. August 31, 2009 is the deadline
for sending your photo.
So now, it is up to all of you to make Leonard's birthday greeting a true keepsake. It has been all fun to date, now it's time to get to work!
