Size limitations....

Nicko,

This sounds like a great contest and I am excited to see everyone's photos.

I do have a question on the rules that I was hoping you could clarify....

What are the size limits of the photos? In my excitement, I may have overlooked the size limitations....but I could not find them in the rules or announcement.

Thanks for your help Nicko!

2x I read it once, and scanned it a second time, saw nothing about photo sizes.

The maximum files size for an upload is 2MB You can have a total 7MB of storage. Check your file size before you upload and use a photo program to resize and get the size down.

Hi Nicko,

Great idea!

But shouldn't the photos leave the identity of the poster unknown? Seems like the best way to find out what the favorite photo is.

thanks for everything you do!

1.) To see who is in the lead you must first vote then you can see which photos have the most votes. I will post the leading photos on Monday for everyone to see.

2.) You can enter 3 photos total not 3 in each category.

3.) Yes when click on the "Vote" underneath a photo you will then cast your vote for that photo.

Thanks,

Dan,

The photos are uploaded under your username so the only indication of who the photo is from is their username. We will post the winners and we will only post their first names.

Do they have to be photos that I took? I had my son take some photos for me that I would love to submit. They have not been published anywhere else and were taken only for our own enjoyment.

Thanks!

I think you can upload them on your son's behalf.

Nicko,

I can not get my pic to go through. I keep getting an error. For some reason I have the same picture in que so it keeps giving me a memory error

Make sure the file name of the image has no spaces or strange characters. So if it is "a really cool - 123 photo.jpg" change it to "areallycoolphoto.jpg"

I feel like the village idiot with all these questions but...

Why can't I click on the vote icon? It won't let me!
Can u vote for your own photo?
Can non-registered guests vote?

When you go to the main gallery listing for a particular category (manipulated / non-manipulated) under each photo you will see a link "VOTE" you have to click on that.

You can only vote for one photo in each category.

Non-registered users can't vote.
