BTW, check out my new blog! //eyesopenmusic.blogspot.com/
Thanks again Ben, I think this will be really useful.
I want to get a new domain name for it... my usual site is //www.EyesOpen.co.uk
Should I go for Blog.EyesOpen.co.uk or //www.EyesOpen.co.uk/Blog? The first option costs me money!

Is there a way to friend each other, or watch each other's blogs from our own blog pages? I can't seem to find such a feature, but I think it would be really nice :-) I'd love to link to some people's and watch their projects grow and maybe get them a little more traffic.

Can this be done?

There is a links section, but I think at the moment the only way to add a link is to edit the template itself. I'm planning on starting a list there of everyone's blogs there once it's started, and I'll paste the HTML code in here if anyone else wants to use it :)

Okay, question...
I just want to upload photos exactly as they are, in DPChallenge format, ie 150kb 640pixels longest side.
I get the feeling that Blogger and Hello want to be too clever for their own good here.
What's the quick and easy way of uploading the photo with exactly the same size and compression as it is on my computer?


If you use the blogger bot, it automatically resizes to 640 and creates a smaller thumbnail with a border in the post (you click this to view the 640 image). I'm not sure what it does to the file size.

If you insert a photo in a new post on blogger dashboard, then I'm pretty sure it remains exactly as is in full view and creates a thumbnail for the post (that you would click on to view the full size original) based on your choice from a short list of options (it doesn't add a border to the thumbnail but gives you some size and placement options).

I've done both in my blog and the images look good in both cases. Most of the time I use the blogger bot because I like the borders (I went in and added them to the thumbnails that were done with dashboard) and I like my images at 640 to prevent theft (and if I haven't put it on dpc, then I probably haven't resized it myself). Bloggerbot's conversion to 640 seems to work just fine. I've never had anything look bad.

Yeah, you can edit the template to have pretty much whatever you want in that sidebar. It's pretty easy to do as long as you pay attention. I have no prior knowledge of html and had no trouble getting the bar to look exactly how I wanted it in my blog. In addition to customizing the links, I removed some stuff I didn't want and added a disclaimer about the rights on my photos.

Rockin'. I've figured out how to edit the links...so I'd really like to add some other Bloggers on there. If you'd like to be linked through my site, drop me a PM or post something here.

And most certainly, if you DON'T want to be linked to, let me know. If I've got you on there and you don't want to be I'll take it right off :-) Trying to make people happy, not unhappy ;-)

Best luck to all!

This seemed like a great idea and I just went and downloaded Hello, my name there is the same as here so if anyone wants to friend...that's beyond cool. I'll be starting a blog soon-ish so I can get on track for the PAD 06.

I'd be happy to be linked from your blog, already have you linked from mine ;)

It'd be good if everyone who is PADing could confirm here and say if they'd like to be added to the list of links or not too... Oh, and who is actually on Hello now?

I'd appreciate any links....exposure's always a good thing.

Cheers!

Added it to the list and my blog, but surely that should be diabolical? :P

I'm kinda considering trying to give every month for the PAD a theme....not that I'll HAVE to stick to it, but something to give the project cohesiveness and let me practice different techniques. If anyone's done a PAD before and thinks this is a horrible idea, I'd love the input.

Also, I've got a couple months that I can't think of a theme for, so any help with that would be great!!

January-Black and White
February-Emotive
March-Patterns/Texture
April-Portrait/Self portrait
May-Flowers/nature (yeah, this might be my favorite month)
June-Macro
July-Light/Shadow
August-Digital art/art filters
September-
October-Color
November-
December-

I was thinking the same thing. Great minds think alike.

I think a theme is a great idea. I was even going to take suggestions on what to photograph.
