--This is an International Swap--

For this swap you will creating two Artist Trading Card - ATC. From photographs you have taken. They must be your own work and the image directly owned by you.

You will be sending two photo ATC's to two partners. Try to add some information on the back of your photo about where and when it was taken.

This swap is senders choice, but please consider your partners profile. If they dislike the colour blue, do take that into account when you are sending.

Even if the photo print is bigger an Artist trading card is 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm) in size, the same format as modern trading cards. And photos must be this size.

If you are struggling, A great site to get 4inch by 4inch photos printed online would be somewhere like 'www.snapfish.co.uk' or try other local printers in your area.

What is acceptable: -Dark room prints, photo paper prints and anything even home printed on good quality photo papers etc.

What is not acceptable: -Photography prints onto printed standard copy paper or card.

-Photos created with a regular home injet printers onto poor quality photo paper or with ink settings lowered to create poor quality prints.

Mostly I want to encourage folks to make something lovely you'd be proud to receive and wish you could keep for yourself!

*You cannot join this swap if you have any 1's or 3's. If you have these, you will have to PM me and we can arrange a private swap for the pair of us. I am sorry to have to add this.

*You must have at least 10 ratings for physical swaps to join.

*This is not a swap that judges your ability to take a photograph, so long as you try and fulfil the swap subject and deadlines there is absolutely no reason to rate down. Lets be fair to each other.

*I cannot at this time angel this swap, sorry folks but I will be keeping a grasp of who is in this swap and their current ratings to try and bring the risk down as much as I can.

Please if you have any questions ask away, I'll try and answer them as best I can.

How much digital editing is allowed? Cropping, changing color tones, using filters, combining several photos into one...?

Trinket 03/23/2019 #

Digital editing is fine - I think almost all of my own have seen a little bit of Photoshop or lightroom to tweek the levels and crop them. The main rule is that the photos must be your own - not something you have pulled off the internets.

How about vintage photos I bought at a sale? Or do you want new photos.

Trinket 03/25/2019 #

@Vick302000 for this swap it will have to be photos taken by you, if it is vintage and by you that is fine - in future I believe I will host a vintage photo ATC swap though so keep your eyes peeled <3

May we add other elements such as paint, washing tape, cut outs, writing, stickers, etc?

Trinket 03/25/2019 #

Yep, seems perfectly legit to add some decoration to a photo if you like that. Senders choice and all.

Shawna 03/25/2019 #

Sorry, forgot to ask in my last post. For clarification, may we attach the picture to cardstock, playing card, something for more stability? Thanks again😊

Trinket 03/26/2019 #

Yes you can - infact that is heartily encouraged if you have those supplies to hand.
