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.
