Exhibit Image Submission Instructions:

Read carefully…

1. Only 2 images per person per month.  It can be either two Assigned or two General or one of each. 

2. All entries will be judged prior to the meeting. To best accommodate this pre-judging, we are changing the day and time that your images are due, to be included in that month’s Exhibit/Comment night.  ALL IMAGES MUST BE SUBMITTED TO MYTBCC@GMAIL.COM NO LATER THAN 10 PM (WHEREVER YOU ARE) ON THE 2ND THURSDAY OF THE MONTH (except in December when we do not have an E/C night).  Early submissions are OK as long as they have the month that they are for in the Subject line of the email, ie, “August Exhibit Submissions”.

3. There will no longer be any make-up for missed Assignments.  Since everything is done digitally and the meetings are recorded and posted on our website, if you will be missing a meeting, submit your images early (yes, that is ok).  You can then watch the posted video for your score and comments. 

Image file attachments should be a maximum size of 10 MB per file to accommodate the email submission process. Depending on your service provider you may be able to attach 2 files to a single message or you may need to send them in separate messages. There is an image below that shows exactly what to do in Lightroom to prepare your image files appropriately for submission. In the body of your email please follow this format to ensure that we have the necessary information from you:

Your name (This is important because your email address may be different from your name and we need to make sure we can give you your score.)

Image One – Assigned or General

Image One – Title (Make absolutely sure the digital file is named identically – this is very important.)

Image Two – Assigned or General

Image Two – Title (Make absolutely sure the digital file is named identically – this is very important.)

Please note that if you do not do this part correctly we may not have time to contact you for corrections in order to be able to include your submission(s) in the meeting. This is because we have to set up some special scoring systems to accommodate the online meeting format and we need plenty of time on Thursday in advance of the meeting to have everything prepared.

Recommended Lightroom/ACR settings for preparing your files for submission:

If you use Photoshop to resize your image – Go to Image – Image Size, in the drop-down on the side right of the dialog box, change Inches to Pixels. Click the Lock symbol to the left to keep the ratios the same. Change the longest side to 3000 pixels. Change the Resolution to 240. Click OK then save your image as a JPG.
