Gallery Submissions

You must be a KPAC member in good standing to submit images

As of January 2021, images for SHOWCASE and MEMBERS GALLERY are prepared in the same manner. See below for specific submission instructions.

1. COPY: Make a copy of your original images.

2. RENAME: Rename each image file right away. Avoid possible mix-ups and/or forgetting to rename before submitting. Please follow these conventions precisely.

Convention: <Firstname> <Lastname> – <Image Title>.jpg

Example:          John Smith – Birds in Flight.jpg

Or, if you prefer a specific display order:

 John Smith – 1 Birds in Flight.jpg
 John Smith – 2 Soft Landing.jpg
 John Smith – 3 etc.,

  • Please use appropriate capitalization and only one hyphen as shown ( Note: <space><hyphen><space> ).
  • Do not include extra numbers or other data such as you might use on your computer files, (Smith John_Birds in Flight-93762.jpg) but you can order images as suggested above.
  • Keep to a maximum of four words in the <Image Title> as required in competitions.
  • The file name you submit will be used “as is” when posted in the Showcase Gallery and will display as the photo caption.

3. PROCESS: All images must be sized to a maximum of 1400 pixels wide and a maximum of 1050 pixels tall, (this is the preferred size, but they can be slightly less). In other words, they must fit within a 1400 x 1050 box as these examples indicate.

4. SAVE or EXPORT: Before saving your image adjust the jpeg setting to anywhere from Quality 8 (60%) through 12 (100%). We recommend a minimum of 9 or 70%. Try for at least 10 or 80% for best viewing results. Keep the highest setting possible so long as your image does not exceed the size limit of 1.8MB. (less is okay).
