I'm going to have to find the original photo though, so I can move the text over a little off his arm.

Anyone have it?

I see one was already done: http://www.dailypaul.com/210698#comment-2198615

It would be nice to have a higher resolution.

I love this picture

I saved it on my iPod and it is the background image. :)

Just cuz..........

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose; the right to create for
yourself the alternative of choice. Without the responsibility and exercise
of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.

I'm a Professional photographer...

Yes you guys are right about copyright. There is a tiny bit of leeway for "editorial" usage, but not a lot. Even using a photo for non commercial use w/ out ASKING and receiving permission from the owner / copyright holder is wrong. If you are making and selling a product you're even in more trouble...

THE GOOD NEWS, is there are people like me who are commercial photographers who might have high quality photos available for use if you ask or if you don't profit. from them.

One such photographer with a LOT of great Paul photos is Gage Skidmore, also based in my town Phoenix, Arizona. http://www.flickr.com/photos/gageskidmore/ - Looks like most of his images are "creative commons" which means you have to credit him / link to him and not have your work as the same type of CC license. --> http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/deed.en

So go knock yourselves out with his photos if you follow his rules. Personally I don't use ANY CC at all because people are stupid and don't know that this is still for "non commercial use"... just about ALL my photos are available for commercial use, but people have to contact me and get rates, terms etc. I'll often let bloggers use my photos(s) for editorial use for some "link love" .

I'm just after a large

I'm just after a large version for my. I want to print and put n my wall, not to sell. Too bad I can't get this.

Be Careful

Everyone, please be careful... all our favorite pictures of Ron Paul are copyright protected and can't be used for commercial use like calendars, T-Shirts, etc. We could use stock photography but much of that is for editorial use only. We do not want to bring any bad mojo upon ourselves. Can you imagine if a NY Times photo is used in a calendar and they sue OR just talk smack? Unlikely, but still a possibility. If we want to create something, we need to do it through the proper legal channels.

If people do want to move forward, I can offer advice and help in attaining stock photographs for commercial purposes but they have a cost associated with them.

Very true, Here is a good / legal solution

How About Postcards?

I would buy some. They would be great to mail to people. I like the one above because the picture takes up a more room than the type.

Good idea

How 'bout a calender..

..with Ron Paul's profound quotes and awesome photos!

Brilliant. Working on

Brilliant. Working on something this weekend, will try to have it up sometime next week. All profit to the RP campaign of course. Stay tuned.

Edit: looking around, will get some quotes. Anyone have any thoughts on an initial order amount? Some have fast turn around, wondering if I should just wait for X amount of orders to come in before purchasing and sending. Would hate to buy a box of 100 and get 25 buyers. Might need to gauge interest.

Please see my comments above.

Dr. Paul..

Is awesome, and he represents me. I would love to see him as Commander in Chief, and as our President. If only those warmongering Repubs could see the truth, and change their ways our country could be saved, and turned around within 2-5 years with Ron Paul as President.

A similar quote, and probably my favorite:

"Let it not be said that we did nothing. That no one cared...."

Poster

Do you have a high quality version of this image? Would very much like to move the quote a little to he right and get a high quality version of this so I can make a poster and hang in my house. Or if anyone can duplicate this and sell he poster, I will buy!

I'm not the original poster

I'm not the original poster but I did edit the image and cleaned it up. I put the link in the thread so it sorta got lost in the mix. At any rate, I tried to stay true to the original artists vision but just made it more polished.

As far as a larger version... the image is most likely copyright protected and snagged off the internet. I just used the original poster's version that was here and edited that but I may be able to fractal it up to get it larger. It'll depend a lot on the base image. Stay Tuned. In the meantime, here is my altered version.

Looks better!

Still would like the original photo though.

Perfect! Exactly right. I

Perfect! Exactly right. I just wish it was a TIFF image that could be printed in large format.

It's too small to look good

It's too small to look good in a large format but I'm a graphic designer and have a few tricks up my sleeve. If I can get to it tonight, I'll see how large I can get it without it looking funky. It was already grainy to start so fractaling it up will be iffy. We shall see. Stay tuned.

The font great too!

New BTO-like Meme? Should we make this go viral?

What if we did with this like we did with Black This out? What if we all made this our facebook photo (or whatever other social media you use)? It's a powerful image. Let's convey it to america and the world!

Oh, I agree...

He looks so humble, decent, honest and noble on that second photo mentioned by you.

As a great-grandmother,

this is exactly why I'm doing all I can to see Ron Paul elected. It sickens me to see where my beloved country is headed. My past isn't important, my descendants' futures are.

Like the rest...

I agree, this is the best. I want to purchase a photo for my wall and to pass on to the family when I die. And I also want that photo of Ron Paul sitting alone, waiting for an introduction or an interview.

These two are my favorite photos of Ron Paul. Would someone let me know where I can purchase quality copies for framing?

Hey, this is good for fund raising.
