I might have a stupid question - What size should the photos be?  I was leaning toward 3x5 so I could fit them easily and with the correct orientation into the books I'm already mostly done binding for them.  Is that ok or should I be coming up with a plan B?

orchid........my sis is doing purple also and she's having issues too!  her problem is, they usually turn out more blue than purple so she's gonna try taking some of the things outside in natural light and see if that helps.  and i told her....she/you will just have to think more creatively!  remember, they don't always have to be "naturally" purple things.  make your own purple things if you don't have enough!  Wink

spaz_muse.....3x5 is fine.  whatever you feel comfortable doing.  (as long as it's not wallet size  Wink wouldn't that be funny? a little mini photo album.  tee hee. ...anyway!! Roll Eyes)

eeeeee.......so much fun!!!!  Cheesy

kendaljay -- Ugh, I have that exact problem with the purple! Even outside, a lot of my purple pictures turn out blue. I saw a potentially great picture of a purple truck, and I took the picture and the truck was not purple, but blaringly BLUE.

I have made some purple things by myself, and there's one picture I love that's not purple per se, but rather theoretically purple. It makes sense.

It's funny y'all say that about the purple -- I'm doing blue and I keep seeing things that are almost blue but really more purple  Wink

i have a solution for you guys with the purple and blue problem. if you can scan them onto your somputer take them into photo shop and play around with the color. for the hot pink purse swap i found a picture of marilyn monroe i liked. but it was in color and did not match the hot pink fabirc i got so i made it black and white then played with the color till it had a pinkish tone to it.

 Huh How is everyone getting on?

I am awaiting my final 4 photos to arrive in the mail so that I can send them all off! Some of my photos came out a lot darker than I had planned (despite my photoshop-ing) so I had to take some extra in the end...

I hope they are all well received! I am pleased with most of them..   Smiley

all righty, it's about that time!!  here's your friendly reminder email for our fabbfabbfab true colors photo swappy!!   <sorry, it's too early>  okay, the send out date is June 11th, which is when i need to hear from everyone via pm or the thread regarding the status.  remember, delivery confirmation is  MANDATORY if you are sending within the USA!!!  please let me and/or your partners know when you have sent out and of course when you receive.  also, if you'll recall, i specified that i wanted everyone to post a few of their favorite pics.  if you can't do this for one reason or another, that's fine, but please at least describe a couple of them.  you don't have to do more than 4, so let's see some crazy, fun, unique piccies!!  <hehe...i already have mine picked out!  >  okay, that's all i have to say!  have fun everyone.

My two albums for spaz_muse (purple) and Princess Dukki (orange) are all packed up and ready to go!

I have an exam on Thursday so until then I can't really make it to the post office so these will probably get sent out on Friday. I can't wait to see what I get! I am far too excited about this swap!

Well, I hope nobody's disappointed with my albums... disposable film cameras are not good for getting close-up shots, and they're picky about lighting, but I tried my darnedest. Some of the photos are blurry, but they'll do... I apologize, though. My albums are pretty much done, just need to get my replacement pictures picked up and paid for, then they're good to go!

What was that for?! Chickens are not your brethren!

I actually like blurry photo's and take them on purpose sometimes.
