Tips for Photo Submission
We're HAPPY (happier!) to receive your submissions by e-mail but please don't just send every picture you've taken and hope that we'll be able to sort it out.
In your e-mail, please identify the picture BY FILE NAME, for example:
HW00078.jpg - The Grand Pursuivant John Smith is seen enjoying the great beef stew made by the OES for this festive night.
If all pictures are of the same event, it's fine to send a short text description of the event including the date and location of the event and principle people involved if relevant (and not already shown through the pictures).
PLEASE do not use your graphics software to add text descriptions to the photos yourself.
All pictures will be modified to 400 pixels across before placing on the web, or 500 pixels if across two columns. Some corrections for dark pictures can be done, but results are not guaranteed. If modifications or resizing have to be done, it is best to send better quality pictures (800x600 works well). As a result of these modifications, if there's text on the photo it's going to get mangled. We've got some high-level photo manipulation programs and have quite a bit of experience doing this so you don't need to 'fiddle' trying to get your picture to look just right. If you can adjust your digital camera to take the picture in 800x600 pixels it'll really wind up looking good when those pictures appear on the web.
Space for pictures here is limited though. It is best to send no more than 6-8 pictures of an event.
We'd encourage you to send an even number of pictures as the pictures are placed two across in the photo album. The alternative is to send an odd number where one picture includes a large number of the people involved. The odd picture can then be made slightly larger and placed across two columns.
If you've got any questions, just drop a note to the Webmaster. We look forward to making this a Masonic photo album you'll enjoy
