Hello everyone,
I have an idea for a community project and I'd like to bounce the idea off my fellow colleagues as well as enlist some help if you are willing.

What I'd like to do is make mosaic photos with WoW screenshots. To do this properly I'm going to need a lot of screenshots (1000's). Screenshots from in-game is what I'm looking for. I wrote a post about it, but I'm just a small voice. I was hoping the blogging community could help. http://dblbbl.com/content/wow-mosaic-project

Naturally I will share this project with everyone and I have a few ideas for it later on, but I just need to get started and collect screenshots.

I'd love to hear any comments if you have any, but if you want to contribute some screenshots, I've set up a gmail account where you could send screenshots to: wowmosaicproject@gmail.com

Screenshots with or without the UI?

Do you want specifically artistic screenshots or just whatever? I have about 600 screenshots in my wow folder right now. A lot of them are almost identical, but a bunch are pretty usable if you want/don't mind UIs.

With or without UI is fine. Artistic or just normal is fine as well. The goal is to get as many as possible, because each picture could provide a potential pattern that may be used in any particular mosaic. So right now I think the more I get the better. This is why so many are needed to make an effective high resolution mosaic.

Thanks.

Edit - I believe that gmail could accept an email up to about 20mb. I'm not sure if number of attachments matters, but the max size of the email can't exceed 20mb. If an FTP site is preferred for dumping images, I'm sure I could provide one of those as well.

Well, I have 720 megs of Targa and Bitmap images at the moment, I can upload them all to you via FTP if you want. Otherwise, I'll just find the ones that are actually different and rar-part them into a few gmail messages. Whichever you prefer.

@Trollin,
Check your PM I sent you a message.

I haven't received any screenshots yet, but a few people have expressed interest in sending a few over.

I've received almost 200 images now. But I'm still looking to receive more.

Trollin, thanks for the initial push of screenshots.

I will see what images I have saved (I was notorious at clearing them out) and send them over to you!

Here are a bunch of my SSs. It was a mass upload to clean out my wow folder so there is anything and everything in here but theres a bunch of good SSs and if you are just needing them for the colors it dont matter anyways.

If any of you feel like participating I'll welcome whatever you care to give. These are screenshots with or without the UI.
