THANK YOU to the Trawler Forum, and to Richard on Tonic, for selecting our Selene 53 Wild Blue to grace this homepage. Richard photo'ed the boat as we entered Princess Louisa Inlet on the last leg of our 2012 Alaska Cruise. PLI is a magic place which we enjoy year round (see http://www.seleneowners.org/SO_news.php?newsid=26 )

Thanks again. Alex

It is a beautiful and evocative photo - great choice! I also think a nice quiet scene like this better captures the spirit of this forum (maybe not the OTDE part!) more so than an image filled with boats.

I agree. It's serene yet exhilarating at the same time. Probably captures why we all love trawlering. The raftup has, to paraphrase the King in the movie Amadeus, 'too many boats'.

Would anyone with digital photo editing skills (and software) like to step up to be the point person to help solicit, crop and manage the header photo entry submissions?[/QUOTE]

Firstly, I am NOT the person you are looking for as I have none, absolutely none, of the skills required!

But if you did have a point person for this role, perhaps it could be expanded a bit to include assistance with avatars etc. I think a lot of the members here, myself included, may know boats and photography but do not have the skills to modify images for inclusion here. For example I had help from a member (I'll keep him anonymous that he doesn't get inundated) for my avatar.
I know there is a lot of on-line help here, but if there was a way that folks could simply send e-mail attachments to a point person I think you would get a lot more images than otherwise for all kinds of uses.

Conrad,

That is a great point about help with Avatars. We can always ask the person who steps forward if they are willing to help with those as well. If not, we might be able to create a thread where people can attach large photos and then other can download, crop and re-post them in a more avatar friendly format. For example, if there is a photo of a boat that has a lot of background and the member would like a close up of the boat, we can crop it out and re-post it for them. I know a lot of forums have a thread so the members can help each other that way. Lets see if we get any volunteer(s)...

Carey, that is a beautiful photo. I attached it cropped at the same dimensions. Unfortunately some of the mountains in the back are lost. I think it also does a great job in portraying "the lifestyle" and would have that same high impact feeling. Can you send the original photo (highest resolution possible) to me at andy [at] socialknowledge.com so we can put it up at a later time?

Tonic's first and the raft-up are nice, Raft up seems appropriate for a forum.

Creating a thread were they could post their request would probably best way to do it as any member could help out. Depending on the demand as it could be overwhelming task for one person to do, especially if they are away cruising, just busy or not yet retired.

An easy way,most photo programs allow a sharing/emailing options which including file size. I confess, I did Conrad's for him by simply emailing it to him from Apple's IPhoto at a reduced size (you could also just email it to yourself so you have a copy). I checked it as it shows various options and I used the one that took his 4mb photo to 87K.

I have the directorship of looking after our Yacht Clubs photo archives, website and newsletter. Last year the photo count was just under 2000 pictures burned on a DVD and posted on the club's website for the member's enjoyment of the years events.

Steve, shots like that are far better for cropping purposes. If the boat where a little more toward center would be easier. I think you have the idea though.

I am very hesitant to mention that I do have photo editing "capabilities". Hesitant because having the capability does not translate to the artistic skill that may be required for the task.

I only put that picture up as I believe that is a photo of FlyWright flying into San Diego.

Another beautiful photo! Is it taken at Turn Point looking out to Pender and Saturna Islands? Absolutely love all the great photos, keep them coming. I think we need a Photo forum so we can all share and enjoy our cruising areas in one place.

Port list, or in a starboard turn? Check the wake.

If it's La Perouse (Marin) it definitely has a very slight tilt to the left no matter which way she is headed.

Our boat is somewhat the same.

We will be installing a new photo album system in the weeks to come. We can then make categories and share these great photos.

Darren, that's a beauty, can you have a high res version available? If so, can you send it to andy [at] socialknowledge.com?
