Just thought I'd write down how to put
your entries on CD for the digital comp. I wasn't at the first digital
night, but I gather it went well, so you probably know how to do this
However, someone may not be too sure,
so here goes.
1. First of all make a new folder
wherever you want your collection of pictures for the CD to be kept Label
the folder so you can identify it later.
Please include your name, so
that I know whose images they are.
2. Make a copy of your image, and
give it a title Close the original down to save getting them muddled up.
3. Go to Image,--Image Size, and make
sure there is a tick in the Resample Image box and the Constrain Proportions
box. Then change the Resolution to 72 pixels/inch, and at the top, the Width
to 1024 pixels for a landscape shaped picture or the Height to 768 pixels
for a portrait shot. Don't try to set both of these, one or the other
depending on the shape of your image. Check that neither dimension is
greater than these numbers. Then click on OK.
4.Save the new picture as a jpg
in the new folder you made. When you get the JPEG Options box, choose 12 for
the Quality, put a dot in Progressive and choose 5 for Scans. I'm not sure
that these last 2 settings matter, but that's what I always do, you are
choosing the highest settings to minimise the amount of fine detail that
gets lost when making a jpeg.
5. Do the same with all 3 pictures you
want to enter.
6 That's it, except for burning the
folder to the CD. Please put your name on the CD too.
7. OR you can email them to me
if you'd rather. email@example.com
By the way, these pictures don't
have to specially 'digital', the kind you usually produce your prints
from will be fine. I thought we might use them also for the interclub comp
with the Southern club. I need these by 23rd Feb. (Earlier than it says on
the programme, as Brian Goldie wants them sooner than I expected.)
See you next week,
