Portrait Marathon: Sign ups imminent. This is a test!

I'm testing to see if people can upload their pictures here as comments.  Let's see ....

Testing with Mylie, who "posed" for my Better Days show a few years ago.

Want to see what Mylie's portrait came out like?
Mylie, NOT in a shelter!
(The Better Day show was a series of portraits of dogs awaiting homes in a shelter in my town.  Many of them were not lucky.  :(  The show concept was to imagine them in Better Days.  Mylie, by the way, did find a home.  :D )

This portrait is a good example of the approach I'll be taking to this marathon, and the level of detail I expect to go for.


Cara-Lea, thanks for helping out with the testing!
Here's your pretty friend:
Sign-ups are not open, yet!  No need to try to post any pictures for the moment.  Full instructions will be in the next post, along with the announcement, so ....

Keep your eyes peeled!  ;D


  1. Do you want me to try to upload a pic somehow, Xan?

    - Cara-Lea


    Looks like just the link shows up with a drag-n-drop. Hmmm

  3. Heya, Cara-Lea! Can you?? I'm trying to figure out how to do it.

  4. I'm here.. I will send something in just a minute. :)

  5. Thanks, Cara-Lea!
    That worked! :D We have a work-around! How handy you were here when I needed you! ;~*

  6. I am always happy to help if I can.. looking forward to seeing the details for the new marathon. Hopefully I can take part :)

  7. Well, it looks like you're paying attention, which will make that first-come-first-served thing work in your favor! ;)

    Thanks again!

  8. Here's my try Xan


  10. Jenn! LOL!
    Sign-ups are not yet open, my dear! I'll let you know! ;) (Love the pics, though I had to go cutting and pasting to find them. <3 )

    We've just discovered an important part of the way this works, though. Need to put your name and pet's name in the email subject line, since no other information comes through to the album. Don't worry: I'll make this all crystal clear when I open up sign-ups! ;)


I can't wait to hear from you!
