Yes, that is OK. The only really hard rule is: The origin must be a traditional media - like film.

Cheers
Rüdiger


Hello all,

I havent got access to a darkroom at the moment, can I join if my pictures are shot on film, and then developed at a lab?

... Please inform JST that her postcard from round 18 is now en route to her! I do apologise, things business took their toll.
Mick, she likes your postcard (and me too.) Good to have you on board again.

OK, having never been involved with any print exchange whatsoever, I want to make sure I understand what the deal is. If I sign up and commit to x number of prints and send them to people and addresses that will be provided, I will in turn receive x number of beautifully printed images and a like amount of positive karma. Said prints are to be printed on paper about the size of a postcard, with appropriate pedigree information, and sent to specified people. Prints are to be treated like postcards and not to be put in envelops or otherwise treated differently than an ordinary postcard. I further understand that this is not pyramid, Ponzi or other type of nefarious scheme that will result in a major financial crisis and the end of Western civilization…as we know it, of course.

That sounds about right :D Sign up for 30 prints, and you will have to send out 30 prints to your recipient list. You should get back approximately 30 prints (maybe minus a few) from those people. Every once in a while, a card gets lost or someone doesn't send out a card, so you might only get 29 :)

Most people print on Ilford postcard paper (look for 4x6 Portfolio RC paper). Other paper is fine though. If you live in the US, and your picture is 4x6 or less, you can use the postcard postage rate as opposed to the letter rate.

Oh it's a scheme all right, a scheme to have some fun without spending a fortune and get some great prints from around the world.

OK. Ill break my rule- I'll sign up now for 30, even though I haven't sent out my prints yet for the current Group exchange.

Same address (in Delta) as used in my most recent exchanges.

Thanks for pointing out where the instructions were. I had done a lot of searching and after 18 exchanges there was a lot of material on Apug to sort through...sometimes it is easier to ask. In any event, even though this is probably more fun then I am normally allowed to have, count me in for 20. that is as many as my refrigerator can handle.

Be careful, it's addictive and you can get carried away, once you've been in a round of 50 cards its impossible to sign up for less knowing how many great photos you might miss :D

Tell me about it. I'm praying it peters out at around 40 cards this round. Each round has gotten larger and larger.

Well, I have the impression that we won't reach 50 this round. It seems that we have lost some regulars which is too bad. We will see. But I am also thinking about limiting myself to 40 this round. But I have the feel that I have to do the max as organizer ...

You might consider, Rudy, in future rounds splitting the field above 40 cards. Less work for you and us.

I feel like I have to do the max so I don't miss out on any cards :D Besides, there's no real difference between 40 and 50 - haha.
