    If I felt my job was literally making my hair fall out I would be looking for a new job and consulting with my physician. But that's just me.

    Alone, in the dark, late at night, is when I have the most funnn...err...do my best work...too.

    Don't be so quick to self-diagnose your hair loss. Get your thyroid function checked.

    Gotcha, thanks for pointing that out Keming. Maybe color would be a better choice to show it standing out? I mean not how it is now (with all the colors) but change it around so it shows I'm different...

    not going to slap you, you're always a bit more deft with words than I am. I've been working with a few unbending clients lately, must be something in the water, and I didn't even consider removing the...

  • Wal-Mart photo printing

    This may seem dumb, but I'm going to ask anyway...

    For my work I am printing some event photos at Wal-Mart (since they are the cheapest). I have edited the photos, and added a bar with the name of the event at the bottom, and the date. When I called the photo department and asked what format they prefer, I was told JPG. When I asked whether they should be RGB or CMYK, the manager on duty acted like I was speaking Swahili.

    Does anyone know the answer to this? I'm assuming RGB, since digital cameras usually produce RGB files. But then again it's for print and I've never done this before.

    Help, please...

    RGB. They won't be seperating anything or calibrating.

        Yeah, after I posted, I thought it through and realized photos are developed using light on light sensative paper. Not ink on paper. Thanks for the reinforcement, guys.

              I thought Wally world and those type places just used a high qual printer for their prints. Do they really use photo development processes? How do you get a negative from a jpg file, do they have an imagesetter?

                  Actually - No, they don't. They use a Dye-sublimation process - which is CMYK. But don't confuse them by giving them a TIFF. It's Walmart man.

                    Death to Wal-Mart!

                    But yeah. What they said.
                    Creativity is taking what is and bringing in what isn't.
