There is something other than 'Auto' ??????

No, no, not on your camera. Just keep using Auto ... ; )

I'd hope to think that IF you have the original archived, you can edit it better from scratch now than in 2002, or what have you been doing in the intervening 4 years? And if you DON'T have the original, you're doomed right?

Anyone?

All of my shots from '02 either had no exif from resizing, or I renamed them. It's been fun going back through old shots though!

Depends on how you renamed them. If you opened them in an editor and saved them to a new filename, that's not an original. If you renamed the file by "file/rename" with windows explorer that's still an original.

Well, I found about 90 pics, but the originals were limited to 4 or 5 of them and to call them snapshots would be to give them too much credit.

Oh well...

Two words: "Unlimited Editing". Make 'em sing! It's a good exercise. Just make sure you stick to a single original :-)

2002 was when i started trying to get good pics rather than snapshots //
about 5-6 are really good (out of thousands) ..

so i submitted a interesting pic rather than a ribbon winner ;)
a personal fav

I think the titles of our photos should include the make & model of the camera, just so we can see how much was done with so little and vote accordingly. I was using a 1024x768 (that's not even 1 megapixel) Sony Mavica FD-81, you know, the one that saved the files to floppy disks.

Edit - oh, is that a legal camera for this challenge? My original files have a date on them, but not much else. The "Camera Data" in Adobe Bridge is blank. I'm kind of out of luck, aren't I?

I had (still have it actually) a Mavica FD-83 that I used for the like the first month I was a member here, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't show/have EXIF.... I could be wrong though. Hopefully someone else has a firm answer.

BTW, could you imagine if we still had to use floppys!??! I'm trying to remember how many photos could fit on one..... :-)

OMG! I found a different image on another disc. Re-edited from the orginal and VIOLA! I have the blue winner! :P

Gotta love spending 1/2 a day plowing through your archives. Thanks Langdon!

2002 might almost be considered the "dark ages" for the level of cameras, expertise with software, etc. for many of us. Since the challenge states "best of 2002" I'm going to assume that the rule, as changed a while back regarding exif capable cameras would be reflective of what the rule would have been in 2002. The camera I was using then would not be usable in today's challenges, but it was fine then. My knowledge about preserving the original shots without changing anything has also increased greatly, thanks to this site and others, so I am doing that part of things differently now than I did then. I have a couple of photos picked and will try to enter one of them. If it gets in, great. If not, that's ok too. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I found this little cutie... :)

Finding all kinds of treasures in the archives that were just OKAY when I shot them, now that I have a clue about editing I can bring out the beauty in them better than I ever could before.

Can You scan pictures from 2002? There won't be any EXIF data.

For those wondering whether or not your camera from 2002 supported exif and whether or not you can submit, here's the easy test:

- add the camera to your profile
- select a photo to submit
- on the submission page, when you select your camera, if it shows up red, you are out of luck, your camera does not support exif

For the record, anyone with a Sony Mavica FD-81 is out of luck. I sure wish this were a Best of 2003, because I had a Nikon Coolpix 995 and some really "cool pix" I could have entered.

What you call floppies here are the 3.5" disks which held a whole 1.4mb each, but waaaaayyyy back when I first started in computers you had what we called a floppy which was literally the flexible kind and measured 5.25" and if I remember correctly only held about 750kb if that!!!!!!!!
