LIL: Pictures For the LMAC Image Library

in Let's Make a Collagelast year (edited)

Another week, another batch of #LIL pictures. I'm trying to keep our lovely search bot/librarian, Lily, busy.


#LIL is the project begun this summer by LMAC founder and leader, @shaka. Shaka discovered a coding master in our LMAC community, @quantumg. We have now a website and a growing gallery of pictures. Every picture in the gallery was contributed by a member of the Hive community. Every picture is free for all members of the Hive community to use.

Please, take a look. you can collect your own pictures and contribute them to #LIL. Procedures are outlined in this blog by @shaka. All pictures must be your own and they must be given without restriction--no copyright or credit attached. If you contribute pictures, the LMAC community will reward you with upvotes. The better the pictures,the more substantial the upvote.

As much as we want your pictures in LMAC, we would really love it if you joined in our weekly contest. We have a lot of fun and award many prizes. Check out the current week's prompt, with rules here.

The pictures I offer in my blog today are mostly cutouts. It's hard to extract these images from the background and not always successful. Take, for example, the goat pictured below. She's pretty, but that cutout doesn't make the grade, yet. In a future post, maybe.

I hope you're getting the impression that a lot goes on in the LMAC community. We are dynamic, friendly, creative, welcoming. Join us. You will have a lot of fun and network with interesting people.

Another word about the images I'm posting this week: Sometimes people notice I'm taking pictures. That's how I met the gentlemen featured in the third picture in my blog. He was patrolling, I guess, and saw me snapping everything in sight. He offered suggestions and then offered to pose. I have several shots of this amiable man and in future blogs you will see more of him.

Thank you for reading my blog. Hive on!

Well, that's what I really like to call a very generous contribution. As a future user of your images, I want to thank you for all the work you've done. It must have taken hours to cut them all out.
You must have a sore trigger finger, I guess. xD

The photo of the policeman is so funny. :-D

Thank you my friend, @quantumg. Not my finger, my back :)) I included the Halloween pictures because even though that holiday has passed, there will be next year! We seemed to have a paucity of Halloween images appearing in the collages so I will try to pump that up slowly over the next few months. Got a picture of a bat (figure) yesterday and one of a witch today. Hanging from trees!!

Thank you for your kind words. Trying to find images we don't have already. Hope you've had a great Feierabend :)

Quite an assortment of beautiful pictures. Thanks for your contributions. LMAC is lucky to have you.

Thank you, @pokerm. You are so very gracious to me, always. It is much appreciated.

This is an extraordinary contribution. I must thank you in advance for taking the task of extracting the image from the background.

I appreciate you comment very much. As weeks go by and I understand the utility of the images, extracting them seems to be the only way to go. Easier for the collagists. However, you're correct. It takes a lot time and effort:)

Thank you for stopping by and for your support.

A task of great subtlety and time, and I certify it; the images without background are very useful to use in collages.

Simply perfect!
With this, I can work. 😎
