NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT post your photos in THIS thread. POST them in the critique forum under a NEW THREAD.
:)

I am not sure if someone has posted this before but if so it needs to be posted again.
For those of you who are trying to get accepted or are just wanting a critique on your photos, here is an EASY way to post your images here. THIS WILL HELP the people critiquing your images immensely!
I hate having to click on links and it takes too much time to click on numerous ones. Help us help YOU!

Please DO NOT HOTLINK any longer with image sharing websites.

Please post directly to Shutterstock from your computer.

Take your image and resize it to no bigger than 500 pixels on the longest side and save it to your computer. Then to post the image you can open a new post window to the thread and on the bottom of the page you will see the browse icon. Click on that and select the image that you resized and then just click on the preview icon to make sure the image shows up then click on the submit icon.

Another way to do it is to add an image that is in your gallery. To do this you open your gallery and open the image you want to add. Right click on the image and select Properties. When the properties window opens copy the address/URL and then go to the thread you want to post it. Open your new post window, put your cursor in the text area and then click on the IMG icon. The paste the URL of the image to the right of the IMG tag then click on preview to make sure it is there. Then if everything is ok click on submit.

To post a 100% crop use the cropping tool in your photo editing software. Crop out the critical section such as sky or shadows for noise or the edge of an object for focus. Using the Save As save the image to a size no longer than 500 pixels longest side to a folder giving it a name such as 100% crop of... Then post it using the Browse Icon.

Thank you!

I see if I can make it sticky.

why even sign up at a free image host place? Upload in the add file attachment section of the post, and then link to those pictures by right clicking on the file, example file.jpg, after you uploaded, and copy that link and paste it where Annette says above. Good luck.

For the really NEW people who have no clue how to resize a photo CORRECTLY...let alone how to attach a file.
It's not rocket science but it may as well be for people who are computer illiterate...I know plenty of them!


By the way...you need a pedicure!

I caught on pretty quick and have been posting 100% crops when I want technical critiquing such as noise and focusing.

There was a sticky on this but it was taken down when they last cleaned up the forums.

Here are a few other ways of doing it.

Take your image and resize it to no bigger than 500 pixels on the longest side and save it to your computer. Then to post the image you can open a new post window to the thread and on the bottom of the page you will see the browse icon. Click on that and select the image that you resized and then just click on the preview icon to make sure the image shows up then click on the submit icon.

Everyone start chanting..."Make how to post images a sticky...Make how to post images a sticky...Make how to post images a sticky"

Then all we have to do is see if they read it! But at least it will let us just direct them to it and not have to write it all the time.
