3 days left to join and we have 20 photographers participating!

Please try to get me your image by Thursday if you can.

Probably the best way would be to provide me a link to a Workshop image with a thumbnail preview like this: ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1232433.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1232433.jpg', '/') + 1) . '.

Remember your image can be larger than normal challenge entries! To access the larger image, we will click "View full-sized image".
If you have a RAW file you want to provide in addition to a JPG, use whatever means you like: Google Drive, Adobe CC, DropBox, WeTransfer are a few easy ways to do this.

I created a --------> little survey <--------- regarding how long we should have for editing ... please answer or comment at your convenience.

Maybe you should add the month to the date, just in case it's so much fun you want to do another this year.

Good idea!:

Yes. After looking through my photos considering what I will use, it seems like RAW would definitely be a nice option - especially if the image contains a lot of detail, depth, or color. Google Drive, Adobe Creative Cloud, OneDrive,
DropBox, Hightail, and there are more ... putting a link to the RAW image in your image details on the image in your workshop would be ideal!

Here's an example of how that looks. I used Google drive via my Google / Gmail account and linked in the image details. See if it works for you!

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1232479.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1232479.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Are the links typically from the DCP workshops, or via a cloud service that will accommodate raw files? Is there a requirement/preference for raw vs. jpeg vs tiff?

I suggest that people post both a RAW image (if available) and a TIFF or JPEG, since not everyone can open/process every kind of RAW file.

Worked for me.

I agree with GeneralE and Tate that if you upload RAW, also have an option for JPG users. Some folks aren't able to process RAW images.

I've sent my workshop link to Tate, and it includes FOUR links: DNG, TIFF, RAF (Fujifilm RAW) and JPG.

Overkill?

Sure. Why not. Links are cheap!

You can also put the full-size JPEG in the Workshop folder so people can download directly from here, and post links to the other format(s).

ETA: Note that for TIFF files you can use the LZW compression option -- it is "lossless" (all data is retained when uncompressed) and it reduces the file size almost as much as best-quality JPEG (also supposedly lossless in the later versions of Photoshop).

Can you give us a little guidance as to what sort of images we're looking for?

Really boring ones to see how we spice them up?
Technically challenging ones (like low light)?
Past challenge entries to see how others would have done it...??

HELP

If you pics are RAW, I presume you just save them as JPEG out of Photoshop to put in your workshop folder for others to download?

Also, probably something that has already been answered but I was not concentrating.

Can the person, who has put out their original" Say which editing style they want it to be?"

minimal
standard
semi-think it looks good but added some stuff
Full on expert but using the whole photo that is given

Actually, that is not a bad idea, you where thinking of putting people into teams, so could this be applied, I think. I dunno, maybe, huh, wrecking ball, call me maybe, dunno??

As I was going through my images I had the same questions! Lol
Being that we have about 20 ppl in this, perhaps we will get as many approaches. The photo I linked to earlier today may end up being my submission. Mainly because it can be VASTLY improved upon with editing. If you take a look at the challenge from a few years ago there were several approaches. Some were fun and goofy while some had creative takes that I never saw coming. I think the most fun way to do this is to approach it with some spontaneity. Take it in the direction you feel is best. I think our diverse ideas should create fun results!

ETA: looking back at the prior challenge (some images sadly no longer viewable), it seemed like a nice balance of images that could be edited as a whole and images that encouraged the subject was placed into a new environment so to speak. I'm hoping for similar results here. =)

If the photographer wants to limit the editing somehow that is their choice.
Just put that in your description. The challenge is to impress the photographer after all ! However, I canít promise I personally will follow that direction! ;)
Also I will reiterate this before we begin - but there will be no teams. Anyone can edit however many images they want. The photographer of each will choose their top 3 edits. The person who gets the most accolades / ribbons total will be the overall winner.

The results of our survey were split:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1232472.png', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/38032/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1232472.png', '/') + 1) . '

I'm leaning toward 3 weeks because as it stands, that would give roughly 1 day per image if someone were to aspire to edit ALL images (not required or expected but go for it if you want).
The challenge would be kept fresh since we can submit what we have done as we finish!

Right now we have 21 signed up which would mean each person gets to choose among 20 images to edit.

NOTE: We still need many of you to submit your choice =) -- including myself!

So, do we post our image links here, or do we send them to you?
02/13/2019 03:17:17 PM · #46
I figured if everyone gave them to me I could re-post them all at once! =)
