That line was so in my head when I did that...

Brando said...

The speech bubble is a great touch.

This is the kind of stuff I want to read to my daughter.

Jennifer said...

Can any of you technical geniuses tell me why the bison image scanned larger when it was actually the same width as the aardvark??

rotten mcdonald said...

Because bisons is larger than aardvarks, silly.

blue girl said...

lol @ rm.

These are great you guys!

fish said...

The images are scanned at different resolutions and image sizes. Actually, if you click on them, you will see that the aadvark picture is bigger than the bison (although at a lower resolution). Blogger is resizing them to fit on the page (and doing it slightly differently because, I don't know).

Details:

Aardvark: 15in w X 16in h
res 96pixels/in

Bison: 2.1in w X 1.8in h
res 300pixels/in

To get them all the same size, you need to set the scanner to the same settings every time (and use the same scan selection box)

Jennifer said...

They're both roughly 9x9in in reality... and when I sent them to Snag, I sent the huge files as well as the smaller email-friendly ones in case Blogger wouldn't take the files over a certain size... Oh well, the hard copies are the same.

fish said...

digital image size is fluid...

Jennifer said...

I bet you say that to all the girls...

Snag said...

This shouldn't surprise anyone who's seen my photoshopping skills at work, but Rotten's suggestion is the only one that makes sense to me.

Kathleen said...

Because bisons is larger than aardvarks

great, by the time we get to Supersaurus, Snag is going to have destroyed the internets.

I don't want to see the letters in order. It lacks imagination, Snag.

Snag said...

Why does it not surprise me AG's impatient?

Adorable Girlfriend said...

I saw that, mister!

An A is for ADORABLE and G is for Girlfriend.

Geesh.

S is also for Schtupping and J is for Jew boys.

Thank you.

Jennifer said...

Snag- I think AG would fall into the animal category...
