Image Submission Guidelines:

In order to submit an entry for the Pentax Users Gallery send an email to pugallery@komkon.org  with the following :

1: A JPEG format file, maximum 75K in size. In order to manage displays files will be resized to fit - a maximum dimension of 600 pixels on the longest axis. Doing this yourself would be helpful. Images that exceed these dimensions will be re-sized or compressed.  For help processing your image, see Rob Studdert's Pentax Users Gallery Image Preparation page.

2: Naming your image: Please use only alpha/numeric characters for your filename. Do not use any special characters, as the server rejects most of them. Please limit filenames to less than 8 characters, excluding the extension. The file extension must be ".jpg" (without the quotations).
Please make your filename unique. The month of submission and "PUG" is not unique. Filenames will be arbitrarily renamed as needed, but we appreciate it when we don't have to.

3: Your full name, country and email address, plus the URL of your homepage if you have one.

4: Equipment and exposure information - body, lens, film, filters etc.

5: A title for the picture - saves us making one up!

6: Any text you want added - location information, details of the subject etc. For theme galleries, include a brief comment on how the image reflects the current theme. Liberal and creative interpretations of the theme are welcomed!
