The final poster

Postby jarkko » Thu Sep 10, 2009 10:04 pm

The birthday poster that was the winner of the poll is now ready!

I received the final photo file from Laura today and uploaded it to the Gallery pages.
Click here to see it: http://cohen.1g.fi/kuvat/Poster/ray+of+ ... +final.jpg

If you want to have it in original size (11 MB), just click on "View original picture" under
the poster. Then copy and paste it to your photo editor. You may save it, or see it in any
size on your screen (or even have a poster printed for yourself at a local photo lab).

Thanks to Laura, Pam, Marie and Linda and all the others who worked so hard to create
the poster, and to all members who sent their photos!

Fabulous! What a magnificent poster and what a magnificent mosaic this will be! What fun looking at everyone's beautiful faces...those you know and those you don't.

Many, many thanks once again to Laura, Pam, Marie and Linda! Leonard will LOVE this!

All the best,
Diana

There has been also some discussion to open a permanent Gallery for member photos here on the Forum
(everyone could send their photo). It would be a long thread with nothing else than the photos
(with some basic information the members want to give). What do you think???

A lot of thanks to the whole team!

And Jarkko - what about to create a space for photo in user's profile?

Jarkko..

Beautiful poster! All of you who worked so hard on this project have this wonderful piece as your reward, and the knowledge that you put your hearts and talents into doing something unique for this special man's birthday. I'm sure Leonard will be pleased.

I have pored over the poster several times and still can't find my picture! Were all the submitted pictures used?

Wonderful! Thanks, all you creative ones who made this poster possible! So many loving faces for Leonard to look at!

And, yes, I also like the permanent gallery idea!

The poster is, indeed, beautiful! I was very happy to see Leonard's logos in blue, rather than orange [thanks for that, Laura] and to see the orange as more of a reddish-orange than orange. I love that lyric you appropriately selected and highlighted the group-relevant part of it. The poster is beautiful, Laura, Pam, Marie, and Linda. Well done. It looks to have been a painstaking project. Leonard will be so happy to receive such a thoughtful and lovely gift.

Ohhh, Honey604, I haven't commented on a whole bunch of photos, yet; those that were posted in the thread here. You're so lovely, and I've looked for you four times and I can't find you, either. It looks like the program cut off and now, maybe, like it cut out some, as well... or at least one :cry: . I see repeats of some and no repeats of others, as though some of the repeats may be beneath the band. I remember someone saying that the program auto-repeats the photos, and I'm seeing where that was done. When did you submit your photo? Did you get a confirmation of it? I just don't know what to say to you. I want to console or commisserate, but I don't know what to say. You ought to be there, Honey604, and I'm so sorry to see that you're not.

I, too, strongly favour a permanent gallery [though photos with our profiles seems like a good one, too... though, that may take up more space than a gallery would].


Love,
Lizzy
