Projected Digital Images for CD Group Activities and Competitions
On activity nights you can bring images, on a USB memory stick, for critique and discussion. It can be time-consuming if members do that and interrupts the flow of the proceedings. There is also the risk that your memory stick may not be readable on the EPS laptop. It is better if you email images in advance. Details below: please note that AT needs to be replaced with @
The filename convention indicated below allows the relevant details to be extracted automatically and images organised. Please follow this convention to minimise manual intervention.
Files MUST be saved as .jpg (JPEG), and should be 1600 pixels (maximum) horizontally x 1200 pixels(maximum) vertically. It is recommended that you use the sRGB profile. Please do not submit images larger than this. Images should be submitted by email to cdgroupATedinburghphotographicsociety.co.uk . (Replace AT with @)
File names should follow the following convention: LX_nnnn_Image Title.jpg where LX=L1 or L2 (League 1 or league 2) and nnnn is your four digit membership number. Your image title may contain spaces and should be capitalized appropriately. Please note that underscores are used to separate the components of the file name and should not be used within your image title.
Full submission guidelines for the main society competitions can be found under “Members” “Competitions” “Competition Guidelines”.
Images entered must be entirely the work of the photographer. Composite images are permitted provided all component images meet this requirement. For the avoidance of doubt, use of images from any other source including royalty free image banks and clipart are not permitted.
