Outlined below are instructions for submission of your photos.
The typical digital projector resolution is 1024 pixels wide by 768 pixels high. Vertical
and horizontal images should be the same overall size, as film slides are now. Therefore
images should be sized to 1024 pixels on the long dimension. Image dimensions will
then be 1024 pixels by approximately 683 pixels.

Saving the image
Save the image as a high quality JPEG file using a quality setting of 90% or better. Aim
for a file size of about 500 KB (kilobytes). You may find the file size in a range of 300 to
600 KB depending on the complexity of the image.

Naming for submission
The file name should include the makerĀ“s name and the title of the photo. This will make
it easier to catalog. For example, if John Doe submitted an image called Bright Lights,
the digital file should be called “Doe_John-Bright_Lights”.

Images should be in the proper orientation for viewing.
