Enter- Misc Av Contest: Summertime

Here's this week’s challenge.

Find a picture that depicts summertime.

Keep it clean, after all it is Misc and there may be underage members present.

Usual rules apply and let’s have fun.

I will try to put up the voting thread on Friday.

Thank you! I'm hoping I'll get me a win.
I've been having a pretty bad dry spell of late.

Re: Enter- Misc Av Contest: Summertime

I can't take credit for that one. I just edited it down to the right size.

If you guys don't want to download any software, there are ways to make animated gifs online.

Tubechop will edit a YouTube video down to whatever segment of the video you want to save, and then sites like this (there are several) can convert the video into an animated gif.

Google Image Search lets you search for animated gifs under the "Search Tools > Type" menu, and you can edit the gifs online with a site like this if you're interested. The hardest part is usually getting the gif to come in below our tiny 140kb file size limit, but you can usually do that by reducing the size, colors, or number of frames.

Re: Enter- Misc Av Contest: Summertime

I'm tempted to use my regular av since Goofy Grape reminds me of Summer in the 60s.

But, no....
