HERE [mivox.com] is the original image file for the Amazing WebmasterWorld Squash-A-Thon... It's a lovely TIF of a lobster and crab on an intricate, reflective bed of ice (on a black background).

If you have trouble downloading the TIFF format file, StickyMail me and we'll figure something out...

Official rules:
1. Only one submission per person
2. Final file must be JPEG format, 4in. x 4in., 72 pixels per inch
3. Upload the final image to your webserver, and send me the URL via StickyMail with the following information:

  • software used
  • relevant settings and steps taken (keep it brief)
  • (optional) Why you chose to use the software and technique you used, in 250 words or less.
  •

    Well, I've gotten reports that some folks have had problems downloading the giganto-tif linked above, so I figured zipping the file might sort things out.

    HERE [mivox.com] is the .zip file of the contest TIF. Should also speed up download time a wee bit! ;)

    So far, I've seen entries from PhotoImpact/SmartSaver, Fireworks, Photoshop, and one freeware compression utility (Pegasus JPG Wizard)...

    Anyone with PaintShopPro? How 'bout GraphicConverter, Irfanview and other free/shareware programs? C'mon folks, I want to see some tricks I haven't seen before! ;)

    ROFL! You should have seen how long it took me to UPLOAD it... My home access is through a 33.6 modem, and the connection speed doesn't even strain at the top end of the modem's ability.

    More than happy to wait. :)

    I hope to provide an entry but I'm rather tied up lately.
