Change in image submission guidelines

Anonymous_light_bulbIn accordance with the image sizing rules for the 2014 Western Cape Inter-Club Competition we are amending the sizing guidelines for submission of digital images for club competition and evaluation evenings.

You were previously allowed to submit images with a maximum width of 1400 pixels, a maximum height of 1050 pixels and a maximum file size of 500KB. These have now been increased to the following.

Maximum image width: 1920 pixels
Maximum image height: 1080 pixels
Maximum image file size: 1MB (one megabyte)

The How to enter digital images and How to resize digital images pages have been updated to reflect this.

Some members seem to have trouble getting their image sizing to work correctly, submitting images that have had the maximum allowed width applied as the height of the image or vice versa. If you have trouble remembering which dimensions apply to horizontal, vertical or square images; don’t bother. All you need to remember is that no image may be wider than 1920 pixels or taller than 1080 pixels. If one of your dimensions is bigger, just set it to the maximum allowed for that dimension and let your software reduce the other dimension automatically.
