PostSubject: The Monthly Challenge   Thu Feb 25, 2010 12:06 pm

The Monthly Challenge is a for all those budding photographers out there. Each month I'll set a subject to photograph, then all you have to do is take some pictures to show us.

No prizes, just a chance to show us your pictures!

RULES:
1. You can only submit only one picture per day
2. Upload to be no wider than 640pix
3. tell us where and when the picture was taken.
4. Pictures don't need to have been taken in that month, but if it fits - show us!
5. Why stick to underwater!!

PostSubject: Uploading Instructions   Thu Feb 25, 2010 4:05 pm

OK - Heres the instructions for uploading pictures (Id suggest printing this so you can refer to it when you do it)...


1. Post a reply to the topic and type your comments etc as normal (heres where you would include a desc of the picture).
2. In the buttons above where you type the message, click the button which looks like a picture with a disk below it.
3. The 'servimg' box will come up... Press the 'Browse' button.
4. In the box which appears, select the image from your PC which you want to upload and press 'Open'.
5. The location of the image will now appear in the 'servimg' box which appeared in step 3.
6. Select the appropriate image size (640 for Photo Comp) and then Press the 'Host It' button
7. The image will be uploaded and 3 items will appear (Thumbnail, Image, and Image URL).
8. Click the text in the box under 'Image:' so it goes blue.
9. Now right click the text and click 'Copy' in the menu which appears. (The copy button doesnt seem to work for me?)
10. Click the upload image button (Image with a Disk) again to close the 'servimg' box.
11. Now right click in the message where you want to insert the picture and press 'Paste'

(At this point you will only see a web address in your message which begins [url=http.//www.servimg.com etc...)

12. Press the preview button and the web address you saw previously should now have changed to your image.

It sounds complicated, but its not that bad really!

Let me know if these instructions are OK - Im an IT guy, Im used to reading this junk!

Pappa, Can this not be used?
Find it so much easier!

Why can't photoshop programs be used? it is the way the world does things now! You still have to take a good shot to start with!

And is not about the photographs doing the talking?
Just a bystander point of view....

And what it the prize for the best piccy?

Any picture is welcome, even if it as been through Photoshop or other photo editing!

Pictures can be uploaded on the forums 'default server' or you can use any third party server like 'tinypic' works which ever way. Just remember to set no wider than 640pix wide

This is a 'Just for fun' part of the forum.. NO PRIZES! just a chance to shows us some of your photographs.

Just remember to only add one a day.. this keeps people from loading hundreds to look at at one go.
