OT - Calling all Photoshoppers! Ammunition Needed!

Submitted by profitgoblue on May 18th, 2011 at 1:43 PM

Calling all Photoshoppers!  I am in desperate need of ammunition to retaliate against a co-worker.  I received the following email this afternoon and was both offended and disgusted.  Bin Laden may have been a Michigan fan and actually worn Michigan gear, but it is quite obvious that an Ohio State guy/gal would not be able to qualify to serve on the SEALs Team 6 and thus not be in a position of authority to make the kill vs. capture determination.  As such, I cannot let this injustice go unpunished.  Can someone much more talented than myself put together a funny photoshop that I can send in retaliation?

EDIT:  MGoMembers are outstanding.  My initial failure may have ruined this thread but I have again been reminded of the collective awesomeness that is MGoBoard!

1. Save the bmp file on your desktop.

2. Go to imageshack.us and upload the pic.

3. On mgoblog, switch to plain text editor.

4. On imageshack, copy the HTML code and paste it into the plain text editor.

Hopefully that works.  I haven't posted a pic on this site since they changed the software but I think that's the process that works.

Could you just save it to your desktop as a bmp file, open in a photoviewing program like paint or something, and then resave it as a jpg or gif file?

Also if you don't have a photo upload site account like flickr, I've used facebook to upload a photo, copy and paste it, before deleting it from my facebook.

If it's a file in an email, you'll probably have to download it from the email, and then upload it to a website (http://imgur.com/ is an easy one). Then you can just embed the image as a linked image file (in case you don't know how to do that, click the green-ish box all the way on the right side of the formatting tool bar, and paste the URL imgur gives you in the "URL" box; if you knew how to do that, sorry for assuming you didn't).

EDIT: I'm clearly much too slow for ths board, but I'm leaving my post as is, because fuck it, that's why.

EDIT: Sometimes I try and do nice things and help people on the board learn to embed images. Then that person embeds said image and I immediately regret my help.

This is the problem. Don't get offended by this stuff. It's just a dumb joke. Responding in kind just ups the ante.

Several months ago I photoshopped a sweet picture of MSU alum and "Envoy of Death" former Libyan foreign minister Moussa Koussa.  It featured one of his buddies dressed in green discharging a machine gun in the air, and the Caption "Every Spartan Has a Saga" written in Arabic (thank you google translator).  It was fairly epic, but I dont have the patience to track it down now.
