I Think if I can get them before Christmas I could have something ready by January. I'm actually looking at farming these out to a printer for a "store bought" look. But I'm also looking at doing a 16 month calendar instead so I can get more photos in

The other item I'm considering is a book. That's a much larger under taking but I think it would do well.

Aloha Guys,

Apparently the loader can NOT handle true HD sized images. 441 KB and 1024 x 535 72 DPI. Oh well, I tried.

Mahalo,
