How to submit pictures
Many people would love to see the pictures they found entered in the
Babe-test. Sure! We'd love to add your favorite pictures. We're just
a bit picky in what we take from people, so to maximize the chances
of us adding your pictures, try to follow the hints below.
Actually, these are the rules we ourselves use to make pictures.
Selecting a picture
Be sure to select a high quality picture. You can scan it yourself,
or you can get it from your database of pictures, whatever you like.
Here are a few points you should think of.
Make sure the model is facing the camera.
There's nothing to recognize about people looking away from the camera.
Maybe you can recognize the model this way, but other people are
probably not that fortunate.
The best recognizable pictures are upright.
If the model is not upright, try to rotate the image until she is upright.
With the little clips you will hardly notice the wrongnesses like
`flying' hair etcetera. I bet you didn't even notice that the model here
was originally upright before I turned her feet upwards.
Make sure the image isn't too dark.
You can get one of our images and
compare it with your image. Many programs allow you to adjust the
contrast and the color balance of a picture.
The clip should be 120x145 pixels.
It should for the most part contain the face, you will find that the
small size makes it virtually impossible to put much more in the image
without losing a lot of detail.
Make sure the face is more or less exactly in the middle of the clip,
it will look better.
Keep the clips decent.
Make sure the occasional nipple doesn't come into the clip. Explicit
clips will not be added to our database. Of course we are perverted
enough to check out those images, but we will not be tempted to make
the images visible to the world.
Write down the name
Without the name of the model your clip is useless
Save the clip as jpg image, preferably use the
name of the model as filename.
Submitting your clips
Okay. Now you have a (set of) image clips that you will want to
send to us. There are two ways to do this.
Submitting by WWW
This is the easiest thing for us, but unfortunately not all of you
can use this method. Here is what you should do:
Put the clips in a WWW-accessible directory. The best thing would be
to name the clips like the person displayed. So,
ChristyTurlington.jpg would be a perfect name for a picture
of Her Christiness. Some systems don't permit long filenames, in that
case you mail us the names as well, or provide some sort of README
for us to check.
That is all. Of course you can be more creative and put everything in
one big .zip, .tar.gz or whatever archive file. If you can put things
on your own ftp site, that would be swell as well.
(email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org) the URL to the directory, or to
the clips if the directory is not readable. It would not be a bad
idea to name everyone you are submitting again, so we have a chance
to doublecheck the spelling. Of course, if you didn't name the files
this is mandatory anyway.
Submitting by mail
If you don't have the luxury of having access to a WWW server where
you can put your own stuff, no fear. Sending mail will work just as
well, you just have to know how.
Modern mail programs allow you to include "MIME-attachments". Just
attach every picture you want to send us, and make sure you send
the list of which names belong to which filenames along with the
mail. Send your mail to
email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org. Mac-users: don't send
us BinHex data, we cannot convert it!!!
If you don't have the tools to edit the picture like described above,
you can still submit whole pictures to us like you would submit clips.
Since it will require some effort on our side to create the clip,
it could take quite some time before the clip is added to the database.
Older mail programs do not know this option. This will make things
more complicated. You will have to uuencode the picture.
If you want to know how to do that on your system, take a look
at the guide to
posting binaries. Send the uuencoded pictures to
email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org. Again: do not forget to
send us the names with the pictures!
The test has been growing steadily thanks to your submissions. We
would like to thank the following people for their support:
(in alphabetical order)
Brian Burnett, Raph Hix, Paul T. Morrison, Jesse Samuelsson and Shadrach.
If you don't want to be named in this list, say so in your mail and
we will not mention you.
