Digital Images

Surrey Photography Club Submissions: Bring your images on a flash drive to our meeting night. To insure that your digital images conform to standard please follow theses directions:

  • Set your working space to the sRGB standard. In Photoshop, go to the Edit/colour setting.
  • Be sure your monitor is calibrated. We will not make colour corrections or other adjustments to the submitted digital files.
  • In Photoshop, go to Image/image  size. Size your image to a maximum of 1400 pixels x 1050 pixels.
  • Check constrain proportions and leave the re-sample box unchecked.
  • For a horizontal image, set the pixel dimensions height only to 1400. The height will adjust automatically.
  • For a vertical or square image, set the pixel dimensions height only to 1050. The width will adjust automatically. Click OK. Do not change the resolution.
  • Now you can sharpen your image suitable for digital projection. Do not over-sharpen. Do not save jpg files during editing as image quality will be lost.
  • Save as a jpg file once and only after all the changes have been made. Do not put any copyright information or any text on the image.
  • NO Watermarks.

Please limit your submissions to 3 images per evening.
