sizing gifs to fit the contstraints is near impossible for me as well.

Really like the GIF Mark, I'm playing a dance-song here at the moment while surfing, and your gif really did the song justice :D

This is a hundred million miles off being the best chop in this contest. I don't understand why the gif is getting the votes when that's not the image posted vote! ;)

Marco, check out from L@rue. 43 frames! You: only 17! As I understand it, GIFs are compressed by storing the difference btw frames. You had a lotta blurs (=new pix). L@rue's were hard colors.

Are people voting for the chop before us or are they voting for the external links. Mate if this chop wins, this place sucks!

Got to agree with Tony. It's laughable really. Oh well.
marcoballistic marcoballistic
what exactly do you want me to do about that
marcoballistic marcoballistic
I agree by the way, I did something I had never done before, and failed in getting the gif up as the main piece
marcoballistic marcoballistic
I linked it in the sizes I could manage to get it down too, as it looked plain stupid as the main image that size, just so people could see me actually do a gif
marcoballistic marcoballistic
I have said before, I am unsure which side of the fence I fall on in regards to gifs being here at PSC, but one thing I have always said is I have the upmost respect for the people that do make them
marcoballistic marcoballistic
And after making my very first one, that respect has only grown let me tell you.
marcoballistic marcoballistic
Another fact is Seans, Jim's, Teaman's or Infected's entries should be winning this comp, my entry is ok, and worthy maybe of lower page 1 position
marcoballistic marcoballistic
The fact I am winning must be to do with the novelty of my first gif linked like Tony says, and that I admit is wrong, I say again I failed to get the gif up at a decent size for main pick. And linked it just to show it off
marcoballistic marcoballistic
Never in a million years did I expect to be leading this comp with this, from my point of view, its an ok visual with a few nice touches, but not exactly original. So people you have 3 hours to sort this mess out

disco gif!

infected infected
congrats marco 4 the win!! i dont want to tell if you r in the right place you r a photoshop master as rey rey and others! but im little disapoint because i had entries which deserved more votes maybe in my opinion
infected infected
and i think that people here voting friends and not the works and the ideas thats why some votings or all of them must be secret (sorry 4 my english maybe sucks) peace
Martrex Martrex
Heinlein Heinlein
Congrats Mark!
Tesore Tesore
I vote for what I like, sometimes love, what seems to be hard work and good ideas. Most people are satisfied with the winner, though?! It's all here! ;-) Congrats Mark!!!
Cartoon Contractor Cartoon Contractor
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Art is subjective. What one person likes another one may not. It doesn't make it good or bad, just a matter of opinion. One person's trash is another ones treasure. Congratulations on a very nice image!
grats on the win ;)
Tesore Tesore
This is not the place... but: your damn right CC: Art is subjective! Sorry Mark! ;-)
Azionite Azionite
Holy cow, sorry I missed this! Shaman definitely woulda won.. You're right mark, this is bottom of page 1 material. How in the world did it win?! I know you had nothing to do with it, but wow.... Love alot of your stuff, but not this... :)
rockyjob rockyjob
i dont understand how this won but i suppose its not your fault. You've got great skills which aren't shown on this chop. Anyways gongrat's on the unexpected win
marcoballistic marcoballistic
the gif never work, then crashed, so until I do it properly this never should of counted, I liked it as I had done it, now link is broken, really looks stupid. Not a good day for me today, like I said, this should not have been even close to winning.
