How to resize images for club competitions

Resizing your image in Apple Mac Preview:

  1. Open your image in "Preview" and Select "Tools"
  2. Select adjust size
  3. Make sure ‘Scale Proportionality’ and that ‘Resample Image’ is checked.
  4. Set your width, to 1028 pixels for landscape photos and a maximum height of 800 pixels for portrait oriented photos, and click OK
  5. Save using our club competition file naming convention as follows:
    • The name you have given your image followed by a hyphen then your name.  Be sure to save the image as a jpg image not a gif, png, or bmp.
    • ie:  fileName-photographerName.jpg

Uploading Advice:

Some members have reported trouble sending images with Windows live.  They have found that you should not "Add Photos" but should "Attach" them and send as a folder.
