Did anyone else notice any differences between the one you can download and the one that was actually there? The flash animation or whatever on the site has a pic of my sons head on it that was in the collage in miami and the one that you download it's not there. . . ;)

I printed up an 11x14 of it for my wall, but I would really like a larger, more high-rez copy to print a poster from...

I had it printed pretty big. It would be so much cooler if we could get a high resolution image that's why i'm holding out on framing this one to see if i can get one printed clearer.

Thomas, is the image you have on your server the same one that we can get off of the scion site or did you obtain it from somewhere else? i'm guessing that you just added the stuff at the bottom, it looks pretty cool I may get one printed with that on it.

Yeah, that's just a slightly massaged version of the PDF available from the Scion site. It prints up well as an 8.5x11, but the amount of compression artifacts in their copy really messes up the ability to print larger.

If I could even get an uncompressed (or at least just mildly compressed) version the same size I already have, I could possibly force it into a decent poster.

If I could get a full frame shot of the original even just using my usual camera, I could easily print poster size.

Guess we need to keep beating on them - now that they have at least released a poor copy, it SHOULD be easier to get them to release a decent copy...

(Did you notice this is the "8x10" version? I wonder if there are larger versions? Of course there are. All we need is one copy of the best they've got.)

At least I finally have one on my wall.

I don't really know much about compression artifacts or image compression but I come from a family that is in the commercial printing business and had the digital pre-press department print it as big as they could given the resolution they had.

Compression artifacts are all the little wavey lines - like "heat waves" over
the asphalt on a hot summer day - that corrupt the image. That's the one
largest kind in the little copy of the composite, at least.

Here's an easy to see example: The top is from the little composite image,
the bottom is a good copy of the same car with very few artifacts.

The difference between the two (remember, number of pixels, or "resolution"
is identical) is the amount of image compression. Top is JPEG "low" quality,
bottom is "high"...



Hope that made some sense.

tomas, you should get black sand pearl fog light inserts. it looks pretty cool though. I don't think I have ever seen your car before. I guess it goes to show I know people who own Scions rather than cars who own people, lol

Actually, Scott, I have smoked fogs on-the-way right now. Got 'em at a group buy elsewhere.

I would still love to get anything like this from the event. Where again were you able to find the one printed in 11x14 Tomas?

Hey guys! i know this is an ancient post revisited, but the Miami trip was still great fun and a trip i will never forget. Thank you Scion. Did anyone ever come up with a poster? or smaller size of the photo wall they had of all the cars of the winners?

Whew! This is an old one.

Nothing ever came of the requests to Scion Corporate for a higher resolution copy that we could print. Best version available to my knowledge is the one you get if you click the image I posted above.

Sorry!
