    APUG book

    Any news on the APUG book, perhaps on an annual basis? I know this was mooted some years ago, but does APUG have the organisation to make this happen? With so many members and photographic experts it should be possible. Can any suggest how this may become a reality.

    Give us some of your ideas, Clive, as to what might be/should be done. Acting as a positive catalyst prevents negativity and we concentrate on the "can do" rather than the "can't do"

    Many different members had many different ideas on just how it should have happened. Not surprisingly, that herd of cats was difficult to corral. And as it turned out, pretty much impossible.

    Cats were everywhere. Going in every direction. All at once. A plethora of cats...

    Are you thinking of trying again?

    This would never work, they would have to publish one of my images and no one would agree on that!

    If a book is to happen, there are pre-requisites:
    a) someone with a bunch of spare time has to be willing to make the layout and specify the terms under which images are submitted,
    b) there have to be enough images to put in it (not a problem, I think),
    c) everyone else needs to either accept the terms and put in an image, or walk away.

    Previously, we've had an excess of opinions and a lack of people with the spare time to actually put the book together. If you want to be (a) and have the ~100 hours required to put a book together, then there might well be an APUG book. Otherwise, no.

    The first decision would have to be what type of book. All images, helpful hints, various processes, equipment and on and on. I think getting agreement on that would be a big hurdle.

    What type of book? And for what purpose? And the quality of content.
    Anything at all could be actively experimented with and group-collaborated using BLURB compilation software. My family has created 4 of these books of world travels.
    Can't be that difficult for APUG. Or is it the failure to agree on something universally?
