  4. Enter your name and membership number into the box and then click the “Upload Your Image” button. The website will start uploading the file. At the end of the upload the page will refresh and a message will say the upload was successful.
  5. YOU WILL NOT SEE YOUR IMAGE STRAIGHT AWAY! All the images will be collected until the closing date (normally the 20th of the month) when the websmaster will check each one and add it to the gallery. Only when they have been checked and the deadline for entry has passed will the gallery appear.
  6. If you want you can leave a comment at the bottom of the page – just remember it will be seen by every visitor to the page.

It couldn’t be easier. It means that entries can be received from wherever you are and checked by the webmaster wherever they are! You don’t even have to remember the webmaster’s email address. Why not give it a go.

    Hi, I have uploaded an image for the food online comp but I think I’ve left the word ‘web’ on end of title as this is what I had it saved as. If you could delete ‘web’ from the title I could appreciate it, thanks.

    Hi – I uploaded an entry for the Reflections comp (before the deadline) – it said that it had uploaded OK – but I can’t see it in the published entries.

    Thanks

      Hi David. Sorry for the delay – been a bit busy this last couple of days. I’ve looked but I can’t find your entry anywhere on the system so I don’t know what must have happened. It’s very rare for anything to go wrong. Can you please email it to me as an attachment to wccweb@sgw.me.uk and I’ll see what I can do about it.

  7. Chris New says:

    Hi Steve

    I’ver now got Elements 14. I wish they wouldn’t change all the technical bits, because when resizing to 1024×768 it doesn’t now give “pixels”, it gives “picas” or “points”. So I don’t know if I’ve got the resizing right or not! Please let me know if its wrong, thanks. Cheers. Chris 390

  8. Chris New says:

    Hi Steve

    I’ve sent a panorama in but is the size ok bearing in mind the standard size required doesn’t seem to fit a panoramic?

    Cheers

    Chris

    • admin says:

      Hi Chris. Your image uploaded fine and all I had to do was a simple resize and everything is fine. This is the first time we’ve had a panorama in the online so it’s a bit of an experiment but I’ll just adjust things at this end until everything is OK for everyone. I can’t allow the final images to be too wide as they won’t fit on some screens then. By the way – did you get home in time?!

  9. Chris New says:

    Please ignore my first attempt today – 16 10 15. My second attempt should be sized ok. Cheers

  10. Nigel Hazell says:

    Hi Steve
    Site not allowing me to upload my image for January. After clicking upload screen changes after a few seconds and says This page can’t be displayed. I’ve tried several times with the same result.
    Regards Nigel

  11. Nigel Hazell says:

    Hi Steve
    For some reason had difficulty uploading tonight – problems with resizing… Think I might have submitted same image twice. Nigel

  12. Trevor Bottomley says:

    Wanted to upload entry for July competition…but what’s happened to the uploader?!

    • admin says:

      Hi there Trevor. Don’t know quite what happened to cause it but just one character has disappeared from the page and caused the issue. I’ve put it right now so all should be OK.
      Cheers

  13. geoff cross says:

    hope I caused no confusion.ive just uploaded a resized pic.as the first attempt didn’t give a success message.

  14. Nigel Hazell says:

    Hi Steve,
    Have resized file down to 1024 (long side). However, I have read the sizing requirements and am now a little confused…Is it better if I send you a larger file?
    Nigel

    • admin says:

      That’s fine Nigel. The normal sizing is 1024 x 768 so what you’ve done is spot on. I increased the upload file size just in case anyone accidentally submitted an image without resizing it. In the past that image would have been discarded but now it’s accepted onto the site and then I resize it myself. As you can imagine, if everyone does it right like you it reduces my workload considerably! By the way, I like the pic. Cheers, Steve

  15. Jack Bunn says:

    Hi Steve please let me know if my entry has arrived. Regards Jack.

  16. Chris New says:

    Steve. i’ve just sent an entry in then realised the size may be wrong, tried to resize in Elements and it isn’t working for me. Sorry. Can it be resized at your end or otherwise bin it if need be! Cheers. Chris

  17. Malcolm says:

    Steve, please can you confirm receipt of my entry for statues? – Thanks

    • admin says:

      Sorry Malcolm but I don’t have it. You can email it to me directly or try again. I’ll be at the club tonight if you need to talk it through. Cheers Steve.

  18. Paul Smith says:

    Hi, could you let me know if my file for January online comp uploaded ok as I didn’t get any ‘upload successful’ message.
    Thanks
    Paul

  19. geoff cross says:

    would be nice to know whos pics they were.is it possible to show ?

    • admin says:

      Hi Geoff. I’ve created a new gallery in the Competitions Gallery (Click on Image Galleries/Competition Winners and then select 2013 Online in the table). You’ll find the gallery in the November section at the bottom with all the names etc.. The gallery on the upload page will only be there for judging really, and then cleared ready for the next month. However it’s been left at the moment as there isn’t a competition in December, but I’ll clear it soon to avoid any confusion. Cheers. Steve Wright, Webmaster.

  20. Michelle Howell says:

    Hi Steve,
    i’ve also just sent in another resized entry for this comp! Michelle.

  21. Chris New says:

    Hi Steve. I’ve altered my entry, sent just now, to 750 pixels wide. Please let me know if it received ok. Cheers. Chris. 7/11/13

    • admin says:

      Hi Chris. Entry received OK – no problems. The 750 is really just the minimum to do it justice. I tend to resize large ones down to 1024 on their longest side.
