TED Ads Worth Spreading 2011, Part 3 of 3

This is the final part of 3 posts showing all the ads TED deemed worth spreading. Please click on the links for Part 1 and Part 2.

The TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) community just released its 2011 Ads Worth Spreading contest winners, and the ads are better than the ones I have seen for the Super Bowl in any year! But what did you expect from a brilliant group who’s moniker is “Ideas Worth Spreading”?

These ads aren’t like those in the Super Bowl where they last 30-60 seconds. They tend to be much longer, often the full version of the ad rather than the truncated TV time version. However, with ads like these, I could watch commercials in place of TV shows because I don’t notice how long or short the ads were. I’m actually a little sad once it’s over, alongside whatever mood the commercials left me in.

I have posted the ads here because I have found higher quality versions of the ads than the ones available on the TED website. Otherwise, I’d have just linked to them all on TED’s site.

Enjoy and be prepared to be wowwed!!!

69 Printable Alice in Wonderland Cards and Posters

The movie Alice in Wonderland has a lot of great images, and many of them are available online at fairly large sizes. However, they are often a bit grainy, or not of a convenient size to take and print, and lacking a little punch in colour intensity. Well, I’ve remedied that with this collection of high resolution printable cards and posters of images from Alice in Wonderland.

These are high resolution (300 dpi) files you can use to print at your local photo machine or store. Chain stores processing photos like Walmart and Staples are more than good enough to print these nicely. You can also use these images for all the photo gifts you can get these days, whether on cups, T-shirts, blankets or just good old fashioned posters.

The files come in several sizes:

  • 6 x 4 inches
  • 8 x 12 inches
  • 12 x 18 inches
  • 16 x 24 inches

All of these can be scaled to 6×4 inch photos without cutting off anything so you can print any file here as a 6×4 photo. I didn’t want to have smaller versions of larger poster files for the sake of smaller sizes.

Please be patient for downloads because the bigger files are several MB in size.

You can print these files at larger sizes, up to 50% larger for the 8×12 sizes and larger. Some sharpness would be lost, obviously, but I think they should still be OK instead of high quality, as they are at the recommended sizes listed with each picture. A lot also depends on the printer you use. Since I can’t afford to test print all these images at larger sizes, on all printers, to see how they turn out, if you print at larger than listed sizes, you would be doing so at your own risk.

I have also created wallpapers and backgrounds for iPhones and Blackberries from these files.

Please do not print these files for commercial use because it’s one thing to create fan art to share for people’s use, it’s another to be profiting off of them. Thank you.

Over 200 Alice in Wonderland Movie Backgrounds for iPhone, Blackberry, Palm and HTC

These Alice in Wonderland movie backgrounds are listed by resolution size (horizontal dimension listed first). Please identify the right size for your needs, then find characters in among the sizes. Characters are listed by alphabetical order.

  • 320 x 480 pixels (for iPhones)
  • 480 x 320 pixels (for Blackberry Bold 9000s, Palm Pre and some HTC models)
  • 480 x 360 pixels (for most Blackberries and some HTC models)

These graphics are clean and crisp. If look pixelated when you view them, it is because your browser setting is viewing them larger than their actual size. Imagine them at the iPhone, Blackberry, Palm or other smart phone screen size and you’ll probably be able to image that pixelation going away.

You can also use these for your Facebook profile picture (especially the vertical backgrounds), or on other social media sites.
