    Default Re-sizing Pics to Enter in the Comps


    0 Not allowed!
    A lot of people seam to have difficulties entering pics in out comps due to the file size and format type. I thought I would post some instructions on how I like to resize pics in hopes this will help others. There are many different ways to do this. This is the way I like when using Windows 7

    Start by opening the pic in Microsoft paint. I find it easiest to do that by left clicking on the pic, then selecting “open with” and finally selecting “Microsoft Paint”



    Next step is to click on “resize” and then select “pixels” on the new menu that pops up.



    Next you can manually resize the pic by typing in the size that you want. In this case I will type in 800 as that is the maximum allowed by our competition rules. Once done click on “OK”



    The last step is to save it as a JPEG file/format. You can do that by clicking on the file menu, then “save as”. A new menu will appear. Select the JPEG format from the drop down menu then you can save the file as you normally would

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    You can also use a free software called 'Irfanview.' It isn't pretty, but it very easy to resize pictures and there are plenty of options to do so. There is also a batch conversion feature which helps resize tons of pics at once.

    I highly recommend it.

    After you have ensured the pic is in the proper format and file size, you are now ready to submit your pic in one of the comps. Go to the entry thread for the comp you want to entry in and click on the link to submit your entry.





    You will be taken to the above screen. Use the “Browse” to up-load your pic from your computer. You can not up-load pic from a photo bucket account or other similar image hosting sites, nor can you submit a link to the photo.

    For those of you with a Mac, You can open your picture with Preview (which is a fairly standard installed photo program) and under the Tools menu you will find "Adjust Size"

    I use my Microsoft program like Aeon does. Microsoft Digital.

    But there are hundreds of resizing programs out there. It is everyone job who gets into the comps to have their photos resized. It is not Cliff's job to do your work for you. Be nice to our Cliff.
