——————-    PICTURE    ENTRY    INSTRUCTIONS    ————————–

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS IF  YOU WISH TO SUBMIT ENTRIES:

1.) Jpeg files only!
2.) Rename Your Photos
Rename your photos as follows:  First Name Last name_nn (underscore followed sequence number 2 digits).
Example:  John Doe_01, John Doe_02, etc. Sequence number will determine order in which they will be displayed. Please do NOT include any additional information when renaming the file!
3.) Resize Photos
Resize photo to 1024 pixels on the longest side. There seems to be a good deal of confusion on this issue. If you use Photoshop to resize, check  “Constrain Proportions” box and enter only 1024 in the vertical or horizontal box depending on which side is the longest one. A calculated value will be automatically placed in the box which is left empty. PC users who have FastStone Image Viewer have this option available to batch resize in one easy, quick step.
4.) Email Photos to dpi-theme@naples.net
Include all photos in ONE email as attachments! Do NOT zip photos into one folder! Do NOT embed photos in the body of the email!
Following the above procedures will cut processing time dramatically and insure that all of your submitted photos will be displayed at the proper resolution and in the correct order.
