maximile mentioned elsewhere about running a PS/Gimp contest. I could be fun. Winner gets bragging rights. We'll use Snaggys pic for the first run. Please make NSFW pics links.

Game on!!!

Just to get the most obvious chop out of the way and demonstrate how to keep the topic load time down by using thumbnails (hinthint)...

Steen: Is there a free service that will host your pics and give you the popable thumb?

I have a photobucket account that doesn't do the latter.

All I'm doing is resizing the image and placing it, as well as the original sized copy, on my host. Then I use img tags nested inside url tags and UBB actually does the rest. In theory, you should be able to pull this off with any image host that will give you a static URL to each of the two images.

Teammate Kevyn Adams assessed the playoffs' leading goal scorer and smiled. "Roddy's Roddy," Adams said. "He did what he always does. He's such a complete player. How many big goals has he scored for us? Big faceoffs, big penalty kills, blocked shots - I mean, the guy's Superman on the ice."

ImageShack does it.

Rod Brind'Amour gets his picture taken with Snaggy's dog. Oh wait Snaggy...Shaggy...oh well. [Wink]

Edit: How is this contest going to be judged?

ha ha these are great. Just to clarify, as much as I wish it was, that is not me holding the Stanley Cup. That is Rod Brind'Amour, the guy who won it.

Damn mounties, they wouldn't even let me hoist it. [Roll Eyes] [shake head] [Big Grin]

Aww man, I misunderstood when Cap'n said it was your picture. I don't watch hockey; don't have time for it. Too bad dude.

Edit: Ok, I fixed my captions [Wink]
