LOL. You had to bring it up.... lol. Apart from doing some photography or reaseach for pics....I didn't have any other generic that I could use without really stealing or giving any ideas away from the membership. This is a great pic, and one of a "very customized" limited Ducati (cough, cough). It help's proove the point of how cool pics can be taken of one's bikes, adventures, etc. It's not listed in the flyer, but yes, the picture must be of a Ducati.

So...get out and ride. Heck, you can even lead a ride and get fuel money. How cool is that. !!!! :jumping41 :jumping41

Smile for the camera... :pictime:

Can't wait to see the final product, we've got some real photography buffs here.

And can't you tell by the mirrors, I was riding an ST when I took that shot in Wyoming :)

Must be that new 4-cylinder ST....:poke:

BTW, how can you have a Ducati calendar with no nudity???? :indiffere





Kidding.

9x7.5 at 300 DPI ? can you translate that into simple pixels, I don't think it is as simple as 2700x2250 is it?
thanks

Just put your camera setting on the highest resolution, and try to use a camera with 4mega pixels or higher.

sorry, me again ... I think pixels is a much more useful number, its whats in the actual picture, whereas DPI is a printer or scanner measure.

Once you have a pic, all you have to do is hold the mouse over it, and Windows will tell you the pixels.

Correct. Pixels will tell you dimensions, but size isn't what we're after, we need high resolution, and with high resulution the size will follow.

You can have a large image 4000x4000 pixels that is still 72 dpi, that won't print properly. We need a super high resolution so we can color correct and still have a clean print.

Actually, it is that simple. Works out to about 6 Megapixel....

Actually, 4000x4000 pixels doesn't change no matter what resolution you're displaying at, 4000 is 4000 requardless. You're literally looking at how many of those pixels there are to an inch. On a monitor, which is 72 DPI, that pic would be about 55" square, but that same file, at 300 dpi printed out, would be about 13" square.

Just keep in mind that for an uncompressed file type like TIFF or BMP, the file size is going to equate to 3 bytes per pixel (red, green, and blue values) so your 6 megapixel image should be about 18 MB, which should be a reasonable guide to go by to know if your file is high enough resolution for JD's purposes. Jpegs will be smaller, but might not look very good printed out due to compression artifacts.

Just wanted to leave a side note, as a person who speaks the same language as above... that if you've got a decently sized camera(as JD said earlier 4 mega pixels or higher) and you shoot on the highest resolution possible but you don't really know the process to switch jpegs to tiffs, etc it should still work out just fine. Tiff is always preferable, but don't let learning how to convert file types deter you from taking some killer shots of your bikes! If anyone needs converting help email me and I'd be happy to assist. Otherwise the printer will be able to iron out a lot of those details as well as long as you've got a file from a bigger camera like mentioned before. I'm looking forward to seeing what cool stuff everyone comes up with!

That camera is awesome for this! It'll get you a file size of 23M. 3504 x 2336 or 11.8in x 7.787in at 300dpi, which definitely works with JD's minimum print size requirements. So, rock n' roll...

Maybe when some of the guys are out and about on the group rides should try and plan some good shots.

OK, I know I've been out of town a lot recently, but how did I miss your broken collarbone? Sorry to hear it. How's the bike? (I don't care about your health, let's focus on what's important.)
