    This is the greatest and best University in the world. . . tribute.

    Long time ago me and my brother Benny here,...
    we was hitchhikin' down a long and lonesome road.
    All of a sudden,
    there shined a shiny demon...
    in the middle...
    of the road.

    And he said:
    "Decorate your apartment with the best University gear
    or I'll eat your souls (whisper:Souls)."

    Well me and Benny,... we looked at each other,
    and we each said...
    "Okay."

    --------------

    So I took a photo I found off the net, rasterbated it and put it up in my apartment. Was an excruciating experience. Took me about 8 hours to put together, but I think you'll like it. I know I do!

    You take the high road, I'll take the low.

    Well done! That's pretty sweet.

    rep. beautiful. Don't suppose you could do a step by step for a neophyte could you? I have a picture and a wall I am eyeing right now.

    Very cool. But that was 8 hours you could have been practicing bass.

    1. Go download the rasterbator software for Windows
    2. Install program and when you run it choose your image
    3. Select 1mm dot sizes. This works best for HUGE photos.
    4. Select Borderless optoin
    5. Print PDF file on a borderless printer. You can print it with borders, but it doesn't look as good. I have a Canon PIXMA 560. I used Photo Glossy Photos II (8.5"x11" version)
    6. On the back of the photos mark the number of the photo (trust me on this)
    6. Buy 8.5"x11" poster board frames on ebay. You can get them for $35 shipped for 40 boards. (You don't have to do this, but it looks better)
    7. Once you get the poster board in, mark a straight line from opposite corners on both sides. This will show you where the center is. Use a ruler or a straight edge.
    8. Again mark the number on the back of these as well.
    9. At Hobby Lobby they have stick-on sawteeth, for hanging photos and whatnot. They come in packs of 6. Use these and align the board with the intersection of both lines on back of the board.
    10. Use double sided tape and tape all 4 corners (across, near the corner)
    11. Put the paper on the foam board.
    12. Calculate where to place it on the wall. You will need exact dimensions for it to look good.
    13. Once you've figured out where to place it, mark the first nail (this is going to be in the middle of the picture).
    14. Using that as a guide, use a laser line and a ruler to mark the rest of the holes. Again, this is important if you wish have it symmetrical.
    15. Hang them up and use a leveling tool.

    For my dimensions I spaced them 1" apart on all sides. Along with the poster board and photo gloss paper I think it makes it look great (love the 3D effect). You can use regular paper and do not have to print it borderless, but results may vary. On the rasterbator site there are people that have TONS of different designs. Look over them and see what you love best.

    Total cost on the project was about $80 or so (minus the printer).

    Hah! Nice find. So thinking back on it, I think I spent about 4 hours or so once I had all of the parts necessary to do it (that was the hard part, had to go to Ebay, hobby lobby, Amazon, Home Depot). It was always the small things that slowed me down. If I were to re-do it right now I'm sure I could get it done in 3 hours start to finish.
