Some of you might remember That good ol' Good Idea / Bad IDea thread.

For those not in the know: Good Idea / Bad Idea is a 'game' of posting images. One person posts a 'good idea' image, and then someone else edits it, turning it into a 'bad idea' image, and posts that one.

There is basically only one rule:
Do not use JPEG or other lossy compression. Use PNG instead. Windows users can use Irfanview to easilly convert an image to PNG format, and there is even a PNGout plugin (http://www.irfanview.com/plugins.htm) that compresses PNG files with little colours into tiny tiny tiny images!

As for software guidelines: there are none. Note though that images containing lots of different colours and gradients aren't easy to edit, though, so you might want to stick to the basicness of software like MSpaint, at least with 'good idea' images which people are supposed to edit.. (Ofcourse, if you want to show off your awesome Photoshop skills for a Bad Idea image, go ahead. )

Either way, to 'kick off', so to speak...

Good idea:


Good luck, and have fun!

Posting late 'bad ideas' is ofcourse still allowed... Posting 'good ideas' whilst an existing one is open might not be too well of an idea though..;)
