Hey Everyone!

Printer Knowledge now has a Pic of the Week (POW)! So we'd love to get the best pictures from all of our members who'd like to see their picture on the homepage of the forum!!


Your submission must:
  • Include a short sentence about your picture
  • Be a sharp, clean, and topically relevant picture

How We'll Choose the POW:
  1. We will be very picky about the quality of the pictures we post. This is the first thing people see when they get to the forum! We don't want grainy / fuzzy / blurry pictures.
  2. The focus of the picture should be tied into the site in some way and appropriate for all audiences.
  3. When we have a lot of submissions we'll gravitate to "better" pictures first.
  4. The final resized images will be about 250 pixels wide. If your picture cannot be cropped or resized and still look good at 250 pixels wide it may be skipped.
  5. POW's will be chosen at random
Please reply to this thread with your submissions

Pics of the Week will be changed weekly.

Could the cropped/resized image be made to behave like a thumbnail? Then clicking the image could open it full size in a new tab. I think the photos deserve it, if this is possible.

I reckon if nobody submits their photos then there will be no POW to pick from, so far there seems little interest in this great idea, surely you guys have some hidden photos you’ve gotten about that would look great on our Homepage.

So how about it, to all our creative people who love taking photos to send in a few samples of your workshop, den or print setup or even the back end of your latest dismantled printer, Anything !

I fear this may end up being Photo of the Months from lack of interest if we don’t take it seriously enough to participate in, so come guys get the tripod out and start clicking.

It's definitely on our todo list, but I worry we may need to completely rewrite the system to do that. I'll play around with it a bit and return and report!

Ugh, that better not happen... but if for some reason it does, we'll just start pulling images from the depths of the forum. :)

I considered taking a few snaps of my old Epson LQ100 dot matrix for a giggle but im holding out for a sound of the week competition and beating all the kids who think some models of modern inkjets and lasers are loud in use. :D
