Brad, how strict are the rules? I see lots of images that don't meet the 800x600 minimum requirements. Are they still elidgeable?
 
800x600 is an odd dimension...

Most digital cameras would take photos that are either 600x903 (903x600) or 800x532 (532x800) because of the aspect ratio... But I completly agree that any photos below something around 800x600 pixils should be resubmitted. Makes for better vieiwing, and more useful especially if the photo was to be used by the forums. I don't think anyones cameras have trouble shooting that size...

I have no idea how to alter my photo size to be exactly 600 X 800. Under each photo entered in the contest I see two sets of dimensions. Which ones are we talking about here anyway? The ones on the left, or the second set of dimensions on the right?:confused:
 
The ones to the right, the left size ones are the default "Small" size of every photo, so you don't have to view it in full size. If you want to see it larger, just click on them.

I have not been very strict in the past because we never had a very high amount of entries. If there are a large number of entries, I may remove the photos that do not meet the requirements before voting begins. In the past when I have been a judge, a small penalty has been applied to images that do not meet the minimum size.

That being sad, the minimum size needs to be re-worded; it does not take into account long photos (longer height than width). The minimum pixel size can be reversed (600w 800h).

congrats italy :)

Oops

Sorry, I accidentally uploaded 2 copys of my picture. The first one I uploaded wasnt quite 800x600 so I uploaded another. Then I realized how to replace my picture, but I couldn't figure out how to delete one of them. Hope this doesn't count against me.

Ok, I thought your previous entry was automatically deleted when you submit a replacement. I not have two pics, and I can't figure out how to delete the first (the deremensis). I can't figure it out. I'm going to try - but in the meantime, don't eliminate me for posting two pics! The melleri is the one I want to submit.

I beleive it is possible to just switch the catagory of the image, so select the one you dont want, and change it from "July Contest" to "Member Gallery" and it will move it to your gallery, wher you can delete it if wanted.

I am out of town, so voting on the July photo contest may not start until Sunday evening or Monday afternoon. Results for the 'best of 2005' will probably not be posted until Sunday evening or Monday afternoon.

Eric: I removed the deremensis from the contest.

I decided to remove all images that did not meet the size requirements listed in the photo contest rules. This was not an easy decision, as I hate being the bad guy. We had 22 entries before the screening; five photos were removed giving a total of 17 photos available to vote on.

To get larger images, you need to change the camera options before taking the photo. Another option is to use a program to increase the size, but some quality may be lost. There are a lot of programs that do this sort of thing. Photoshop and paintshop are nice; a good free option might be irfanview.

The image dimension requirement may be adjusted before the August contest.
