Pictures for competitions

You can email these to [email protected] and the competition secretary will receive them.

Please note:

  1. Pictures must be sized to at most 1400 pixels wide or 1050 pixels high. If your picture has a width to height ratio of 4:3 then it can fit these dimensions exactly. Otherwise only one dimension will be as specified, and the other will therefore be smaller than the value specified. See the website document "Members Area / Competition Rules" where you'll find a useful diagram about this.
  2. The last submission dates are -
    1. For club (informal) competitions and events - 1 week before the event. You can bring your pictures into the club on a memory stick on the night of the competition, but please don't email them in later than 1 week before the competition
    2. For club (formal) competition where an external judge is coming - 1 week before the event. Pictures brought into the club on a memory stick on the night of the competition will not be accepted.

 


 

Pictures for your own gallery on this site

You can do this yourself directly once your gallery is set up. If you don't have a gallery, then email [email protected] asking for one. The IT secretary will do this and Zenfolio (the system which we use to design and maintain our web site) will send you an email to let you activate your account. You can follow the following instructions, or look at a pdf instruction document which has illustrations in it which are too big to go on this page. You can get this document from the "Members Area / Uploading to your gallery" drop-down on the web site.

 

Instructions after receiving the email

1. Click on the link in the email to access Zenfolio.

2. Type a password of your choice in the two password boxes and then click "Activate account".

3. Select your gallery - if you look down the column on the left you will find your name and an orange icon. You can only upload to your own gallery! Click on this icon.

4. You should now see a screen with your name shown. Click on the "Upload photos & Video button."and then on the "Add Photos or Videos" link near the top below your name. Then select as many images from your computer using the selection dialogue box.

5. Once you have done this, click the "Start Upload" button and wait. Do not close the browser screen until the upload is finished. You can open and use another browser tab if you like, but if you close the uplod one then the upload will fail.

6. Admire your gallery, and tell your family and friends about it!
