Hello,

This forum is to serve as a gallery to display picture discs, colored vinyl, shaped or rare and interesting records.

It is suggested that any information pertaining to the displayed disc, such as label, catalog number, artist or disc news, be included.

You may link to outside sources such as other websites or databases as long as you own the images or have obtained the permission of the image owners.

Otherwise, include the record's image as a attachment with your post.

Any message that contains a "dead link" or the image refuses to load, will be deleted.

We ask that images be of a high quality, presentable and within the bounds of good taste. Also, we ask that the image not exceed the size of the message or 300 pixels wide and 60kb.

Due to storage and bandwidth constraints, we also ask that everyone refrain from "flooding" this forum. The Administrator reserves the right to edit or delete any image that exceeds size requirements, artistic integrity or due to excessive bandwidth or "data transfer" properties.

Lets have fun!

Jack,

You can download one of the following FREE photo editors to ensure that your photos are of the correct size. This list was created by Sue Chastain of About.com.


Top 6 Free Photo Editors for Windows

Guide Picks

If you can't afford to purchase software, you can still find free software to create and edit images. Some of this software is developed by individuals, and some is feature limited or an earlier version of a more advanced program. In some rare instances, there are no strings attached, but most often you will need to provide information to the company by registering, or endure ads or "nag" screens.

1) GIMP for Windows
GIMP is a popular open-source image editor originally developed for Unix/Linux. Often lauded as the "free Photoshop," it does have an interface and features similar to Photoshop. Because it's volunteer-developed beta software, stability and frequency of updates could be an issue; however, many happy users report using GIMP for Windows without significant problems. It doesn't support GIF format.

2) Serif PhotoPlus 5.5
Serif has long been giving away previous versions of their software to entice users to purchase the current version. Currently you can download a completely free, fully-functional version of PhotoPlus 5.5, or order a CD and pay only shipping costs. PhotoPlus 5.5 features an export optimizer, editable text, image slicing and image maps, selection tools, smart shapes, and image enhancement tools.

3) Satori PhotoXL
Satori PhotoXL offers professional-level, nondestructive photo-editing, paint, and illustration for the studio, home and office. Supports unlimited image layers and imports Photoshop PSD files. Satori's products have the same look and feel of traditional pixel-based editors, but all objects are resolution independent, fully editable floating vector objects.

4) Pixia
This is the English version of a popular free painting and retouching software that originated in Japan. It features custom brush tips, multiple layers, masking, vector- and bitmap-based drawing tools, color, tone, and lighting adjustments, and multiple undo/redo. Like many freeware editors, there is no support for saving GIF format. Also available for many other languages.
Publisher's Site

5) Ultimate Paint
Ultimate Paint is available in both shareware and freeware versions for image creation, viewing, and manipulation. It has been designed to be fast and compact, and if you're familiar with the old Deluxe Paint program from Electronic Arts, Ultimate Paint is said to be very similar. The freeware version is an older release of the full-featured shareware product.

6) VCW VicMan's Photo Editor
This award-winning graphic editor offers a variety of painting and editing tools and features including a text tool, gradients, selections by color or region, color replacement, editing in any scale, special effects and so on. This free version is an enticement to upgrade to the Pro version for $29.95 US, so you can expect to put up with nag screens.

After downloading and installing this software, you can easily convert those massive "JPEG" files to conform to this message board's guidelines.

Hi all,

This is an addendum to the original post.

Although you may link to an outside source if necessary, the Guild prefers that images be uploaded to this board. In this manner, the photo will always be present to complete the contents of the posts.

As you know, links have a tendency to vanish and hence takes away from the original message.

Jeff
