    OK Contestants...Please only submit 5 pics with no adlib context...you will not sway the judges with extra verse...LOL.

    3-30-2009 to 6-30-2009 should give ya'll plenty of time to condition your dogs and get some good quality pics.

    Try to make all your pics the same size for easy viewing...and good quality. We are not judging the photography, but it does need to be clear.

    Make sure your pics are downloaded on a site that will be operational on the 6-30-2009 cutoff date.

    I know you wrote no PS, but what about minor stuff like cropping, resizing, levels? And what size is best?

    I am not a judge or anything, but I say the pictures should stay the same, and no editing should be done. Leave the picture how it is. No editing at all. So its fair for people who do not have PhotoShop. The photoshops pictures may make the dog look better and make the picture better.. ect. Also, sometimes when you resize the picture the dog looks more muscular because it gets all compacted i guess you could say.

    for example

    this is a resized pic of rex.

    and look how he looks. His muscles dont really look like this. He does have muscles.. But he does not look like this in real life. The resizeing changed the way he looks,


    because the picture got smaller and made rex look a little wider and bigger than what he really is.. thus resulting in his muscles looking bigger when they really dont look like this.

    so yea.. i say no resizing or anything with photoshop. i doubt the picture is going to be like 999999999 x9999999999 where resizing would need to be done. or 2x2 ......

    Im not a judge or anything as i said but i say no ps at all period. no cropping or resizing or anything..

    lets wait for DD , to see what he has to say.

    Cropping and resizing could be done in photobucket too for those who don't have PS. I'd rather just see the dog than a bunch of stuff in the background.

    I'm not sure my Great Dane or Bulldog can stack but we will try!!!

    If you resize and keep the proportions the same the dog will look exactly the same but the picture will be smaller.

    Y'all are gonna see some biga** pictures if there's no resizing - like 4Gb+ in file size for pics that are 3872x2592 pixels.

    Well you would if there was a way to upload them - there isn't.

    I can see not making changes in the picture itself - removing or adding objects (besides cropping) or changing the background. I can see not using plugins or anything you can't use in a basic editing program available to everyone - ie photobucket.

    I'll wait for the official answer too :)

    As long as the aspect ratio is kept, the dog will look exactly the same in a large as in a smaller picture. The only thing that you can do to "pop" them muscles, is to play with lighting and filters at the time of snapping the picture ;)
