.... but will need to edit them all individually to ensure that none go over 800 pixels wide or it might not load on the FOD.

So I guess a few might have been bigger

I can see one of mine but the rest of the pics won't load for me which is a bit of a pain. Computer comes back tomorrow so I should have better luck then. Some nice shots of others. Nice to see mine has 11 likes. That makes me happy. Will a poll be put up here? Even with just a link to pictures? :)

Thanks for getting on the missing ones so fast Sally, mine are there now :D

Do you suppose these will be in store by christmas, perchance? It would be the perfect excuse to spend lots of money   :lalala:

nope, not a hope.  I am sending out the newsletter today with the details of where to send all of the entries and asking people to check the pics to make sure their entry is there so we can get them divided into categories and judging started.

there is another HF release in about a week/10 days .. i am sure i can persuade you to part with some cash then!...lol!

my life consists of brief snatched moments of living my life hidden deep among chaos, confusion& the  going crazy, every night i go to sleep filled with hope & enthusiasm for the new day coming.  then i wake up & think "here I go again" & just aim to survive.

Ya gotta realise that Hasslefree is two people. They've got to run a business, take care of three (possibly four?*) kids, sculpt new figures, and judge this comp. I'm sure they want to judge this comp, from what they've said they love the level of quality the competitors have brought! I feel they may have been surprised by that and the number of entries** - both which make judging it more difficult.

*gluttons for punishment!

**They've run sculpting comps before on this site. Judgement was delayed by real life then, too. But I don't remember anything like the variety or skill or number of entries that this comp has attracted. So Good On You, Competitors!

I forgot to say "thanks for this".  :)

Just a question :

In the rules, was it wrote something about the picture's size? I think yes, but when I compare my picture with some other, mine seems very little (and above all with less visible details) :blink:

Maybe I didn't understand rules (d'ont forget I'm french ;))

the image you sent was 558 x 800 which is the one that i used.  if you want to send over a larger image that we can use when we get to judging that is fine!

We have had to rethink the judging method but yes i will get all of the pics up here.  i am chasing up missing ones at the moment but when i get a few hours i can get them up, hopefully tonight if i am not too tired :)

Might help save you some time; Throwing up a webpage to spit out all the images in a folder would only take a few lines of code, then you could direct people to that page rather than trying to individually list 80+ pictures on the forum. It would also mean you didn't need to resize them.

Something to consider! I could send you the page you'd need, if you like :P

Hi Sally, sorry to be a pain but my entry doesn't appear to be on the facebook album. I did get the email to say you had it so i know you've seen it. Maybe you mentally filtered it out as it's so bad  :silly

that sounds interesting.  the main issue that i have is they vary in width from between 233 pixels to 1700 pixels so i was facing the job of trying to resize them to 600 pixels wide before uploading them to our spare server and then getting the links on here.  Any advice for saving me a job is helpful and very very much appreciated!

I could do that for you and put them in a .zip if you like. Got a photography program that would do it in a few seconds without wrecking the images. :)

I've had enough sweeties off HF in the past to fuel hours of work.  :yup: Especially as I get to eat Gangrel's too.

So you haven't ruled out any of the entrys as uncastable? Just want to make sure before I send in all my entrys only to have my fave lost in the either X3 (they are like first born!)
