    Ok so in a matter of minutes a good amount of people seem interested , I can only imagine the interest from the morning crew. Currently its just going to be a Tacoma Calendar , if I get approval it could possibly be a Tacoma World Calendar

    Some guidelines for photo submission ( Will be updated as I encounter things that need to be adressed)

    1) It must be your vehicle

    2) Cel phone photos usually get stretched out and dont look that great

    3) If its from your photobucket , flickr , or facebook ... its probably not going to work.

    4) If the file size is under 1MB is probably not going to work

    5) Females posing on vehicles will be handled on a case by case basis.

    6) No males posing on vehicles

    7) HDR photography - please keep it reasonable , maxing out the dynamic range is not reasonable

    8) Bribes & Donations will be considered [​IMG]

    9) Make sure you have photos that are large enough and in good quality to be stretched or sized to at least an 8 x12 . I can not stress this enough, in the last 3 yrs I did it for the R6 board people would PM me asking why their amazing photo didnt get used , its because it was too small.

    10) Please do not send photos with the photographers watermark on them

    11)whippersnapper is gonna be disappointed

    12) Do not post photos in this thread , i dont need it taking forever to load from all the photos since im doing all this from my 3G mobile hotspot




    Now that you have read the guidelines here is the email to send the photos too.

    worth a try. Gmail is so much better than any other email provider I've found anyway.

    I usually download most of the emailed photos to a folder on my computer , i select the 13 photos I need then I usually delete the emails and the folder containing the photos


    try your yahoo/gmail account . It sounds like your computer is trying to send email through a program you dont have set up

    I think you would want it at least 1500 pixels on the long side. Mine was like 4500 or something, straight out of the camera.
