Notes on Image submission

* The Maximum image size for these images is 1200 pixels on the longest side. Please resize to that dimension. This produces a file in the range of 500KB to 1MB. Over 20% of the images entered into the September Competition at 7 Ponds were way over this, including up to 7.5MB. That does several things, it slows down the synchronization process to get the program loaded. It unnecessarily uses up  space that is limited at Visual Pursuits, without paying more money. It uses a lot more memory on the computer used in the competitions. The program will show the images with 1200 pixels on the longest side, but it saves it at the original size. It also means that these images that are not properly sized will be resized by a program you have no control over. 

*All images entered into competitions at the GDCCC require a title that means something in English. We are happy to show images that do not meet that requirement at 7 Ponds, but, they will be disqualified if entered into GDCCC competitions. 

* The name or identification of the person submitting the image cannot appear in the title. That earns a DQ at GDCCC.

*The name of the maker cannot appear in the image itself. Again it gets a GDCCC DQ.

Please check the requirements for entering different categories so as to avoid problems with that aspect of the competition. At 7 Ponds we may not be as fussy with all of this. Entering images to GDCCC competitions is a different story. They follow most guidelines from The Photographic Society of America (PSA) and try to have all enterents playing on a level field.  Hank Lewis
