I was at the Newmarket mills last night and was so impressed how you have magically created a fabulous art show literally overnight. What a wonderful expression of each one working together for the benefit of the whole. Whoever was able just dropped everything and rallied to the cause with all their hearts and resources. WOW. May the Force be with us!
(Nothing can stop or even hinder a right idea from completion with this group)
The opening last week was filled with great expectation of a few weeks of sharing many wonderful examples of great photography thanks to the generosity of the Exeter Town Hall Gallery. Little did we know that this show was going 'on the road'
This temporary new location will bring new opportunities to share with another area and the 'giving back' Saturday meet ups will be able to continue.
Thank you all - there is indeed much good in the world

Hi Susan! Be careful and watch the ratio of your image if you plan to use MPIX for prints. I tried them once and found out that if your image isn't sized EXACTLY right for the paper size you order, they'll just automatically center the image so that it covers the whole paper, "bleeding" it to spill over the edges. Consequently, the edges get cut off. I had presumed that they would fit the WHOLE image onto the paper, leaving white space on the edges. Of course you'd then have to have the print framed professionally to fit your odd format but at least you'd have the whole image. So don't give them any square formats. They don't do custom work. They'll just automatically center everything to fit the paper and you'll end up with an odd composition. Since there's no square printing paper, a smart printer would print the whole image and you would simply cut off the blank areas. I think MPIX has some kind of "print preview" so take a look at that first before you order anything.

Wonderful show with strong entries and many delightful abstracts. Thanks to everyone who attended the opening, and the enthusiasm of the many who came before the show even got started. Gratitude to the many fine photographers that are participating, and the hard-working committee that put so much time into making this a success.

Re the opening of the Abstract Show at the Town Hall--the photographs are professional quality, with many fascinating and intriguing abstracts, the wine was very nice, the munchies (dips, spreads, cookies, fudge) were also well-received (and thanks to those who were responsible for providing them) and I'm sure that the "outsiders" who attended had a good impression of the group. The only thing missing, maybe, was some nice soft background music? We can spread the word without hesitation that the show is worth seeing. -- Jackie

Not sure if my images match the exact dimensions I gave when I did my original submission (but they are close). The dimensions aren't printed on the tags, are they? And if they are who should I send my updated dimensions to. There's no place on the PhotoMeets website to update this. Thanks!

Howdy- Someone at the meeting suggested MPix for printing. I'm checking it out for kicks and ran into a problem. It uploads the title of the photo, but it says "thumbnail generation in progress" and never actually uploads the image. I can't remember who suggested this site, but was hoping he might see this comment and let me know if he's ever had any trouble. I'll probably use Photosmith in Dover because he is always so helpful and I like to keep it local, but I thought I'd pose this question in case I want to use MPix in the future. Thank you!

I have used Mpix with out a problem. I have also used Richmond Camera on line. The turnaround is not quite as quick as Mpix, but the results are excellent prices very good and shipping the same as Mpix. You can talk to the lab by phone. Having several prints made at once spreads the shipping costs.

I am having diffuiculty uploading my abstract images for consideration for the upcoming exhibit. I have not had trouble in the past using our system to upload images for Brown Bag and Challenge, but it doesn't upload when I hit th eupload button Instead my image which I have selected usisng the files using the browse function disappears from the browse window without uploading as far as I can tell. The images have been sized to 800 pixels high.
I want to participate so I need help. Bob
