Original image file size

The original images should be high enough resolution to be printed. Images taken on any camera or camera phone will definitely be accepted, however if the image is not a reasonable quality, we may not be able to print them in future publications.

Image file size for uploading

Uploaded images should be in jpg file format.

You image should be 800 pixels tall.

The maximum file size for uploaded images is 1 Mb.

The optimal image resolution is 200dpi.

Editing and adjusting your images

You may adjust and edit your images to optimize the photograph. Aspects such as cropping, brightness, contrast, and color balance can all be adjusted. Your indoor and outdoor images may be in color and B+W for submission, images may not have any watermarks or captions on them.
