    I hope to snap a ultra long queue of singaporeans queuing up and a big sign showing 'FREE' in the picture as well.

    You think they'll accept this shot?

    wai: Great minds think alike, let's see who gets to it first

    Shall we go snap together? I'm also sian of NDP, after being involved in 2 and one of them didn't go to plan. I do like the feeling and pressure feel of the planes flypast though

    Think we'll be needing a 50-10000 lens

    hmm they need a TFF file with 300dpi

    my question is how to convert a JPG file taken with a digicam(not too sure what the dpi) into a TIFF file of 300dpi using adobe photoshop?

    Save it as TIFF. That's it. The 300dpi part is confusing, 300dpi at what size? 3" x 2"? 30" x 20"? 15" x 10"? Anyway, I think at least 1800 x 1200 (4x6" at 300dpi) would be good enough.

    Oh TIFF? Then I'll just shoot at Hi-Mode and send them a 7MB file

    Think I'll keep a look out on this topic as I go shooting this weekend
