Submitting images and text

Submitting images: technical requirements

The preferred format is JPEG (uncompressed or compressed). We can accept other formats but we may request a resupply if not suitable.

Generally, we recommend you email un-edited images in JPEG format.

Images up to 10Mb can be accepted by email although we do find images in the range of 500Kb to 3Mb are perfectly suitable.

Images should be at least 960 pixels on the longest side. See diagram below. Pixel dimensions are the important measures - dpi or ppi have no context for webpage publishing.

Generally, the larger filesize of the submitted image, the better chance of a good result when published.

We reserve the right to edit or reject material provided to us.

Submitting images: emailing

Contributors are asked to pre-select their best shots and then submit up to six of their best pictures.

Please send no more than six images in a single day.

To help write the captions, please also provide the date of the image within the email message or within the image filename and any other relevant information, for example, subject and location
