Ok my friends, because of all the love and warmth you have all been sharing with me of late, which makes a profound difference in my life. I have spent yesterday afternoon and this afternoon preparing some goodies for you all to share and use in your artwork. I have hosted 12 odd flower photo's on my Flikr account at around the size of 500 kb's each, but i have the originals which are in the TIFF format and are 22mg's each, i also have the reduced size of each photo at the 5mg's mark. It is entirely up too you what size you would like them at.
I will be more than happy to make up as many disks as are required for all of you who would like to have the 22mg TIFF's, the dimensions are 3264 x 2448 pixels, and i will be happy to send them to you free of charge, or i will be happy to upload the 5meg photo's for a short time, but only the ones that people require as i am limited to 100meg per month bandwidth at Flikr, i will be happy to use up to 80% of my bandwidth to ensure you guys have the best quality available to you for your painterly needs
I will post 2 collages that i put together quickly in photoshop to display the photo's that are available. All the photo's have been reworked with Camera Raw and Photoshop to bring their natural colours out.
I sincerely hope you except this gift from me and make use of it somehow in your upcoming works, i would love nothing better than to see my photo's used in your paintings, please let me know if you do use them.
If you wish to receive a disk then send me a private message with your postal details and i will organize it from there.
Finally thankyou all very much for accepting me as part of the ArtRage family
It is a bit hard to see what's available to you in the collages, however it gives you some idea, if you head over too my Flikr Photostream
you will be able to see the photo's in all their glory, i realize they may not be the best photo's in the world but they are the best i can do with my limited experience
