Vexel gallery?  What?  Wait, we don't have a vexel gallery. Well, we will soon and that's why I'm writing this news article.

Over the next few weeks I am going to start to put together all the subgalleries for a proper vexel gallery. Yes, that means we will officially have a legitimate vexel gallery of its own. This new gallery will be in the digital gallery section in a place of its own, just like vector has its own area. Before we do that, all the categories have to be hammered out and sifted through to see which ones are needed and which ones we can live without.

First off, if you're not completely sure what a vexel image is, read this vexel description. After digging around on the net, that's a great source of information about the medium. Hats off for such a clear and easy to understand definition.

This is going to be completely new so how the other digital galleries are set up are not important. Subgalleries for the other sections might not be appropriate for a vexel section so let's start from scratch.

A minimum collection of galleries might include:

1.  People
2.  Animals
3.  Vehicles
4.  Abstract
5.  Scenery
6.  Fanart
7.  Open Format (for images that don't exactly fit in the other galleries)

The goal is to create enough diversity so all vexel art can be submitted properly, but, not so wide spread that it is difficult to maintain. In other words, keep is simple, keep it clean.

Now's your turn, let me know what you want. Not promising to use every idea but the great ones will be put in place. When you make a suggestion, think what it would be like if you had to police it. Is it too close to another subgallery, not really going to get much art posted to it, too difficult to figure out what it means? Let us together create something that we all can be proud of and enjoy browsing every day.

If you want to help, speak your opinions politely, pass the word, and fave this article so it shows up in the popular page. The more people know about this, the better it can be.

quite a long off and on vent going on here.

but for those, like me, that were looking for an explanation, historically, of "vexel images", here one is...

"Many," probably, but that's not what I said. You still can't do all what photoshop can do, which is what I said.

Really amazes me that one person with actual darkroom access, and is willing to go to such lengths brings up an incomplete argument that they believe totally justifies condemning the spirit of what was being pointed out here. Congratulations, so you can do some of the things that photoshop can do when you go into your darkroom, for the other 99.999% of the people that read this, the original assessment of the article still stands.

That's complete and utter BS - I've been doing darkroom work for ages, and I can do many things that software these days can do by playing with chemicals and filters.
