Members: If you would like to showcase your artwork on this site, please submit them to Deanne Miller.
Criteria for submission:
Submit work in a digital format (on CD, or by e-mail).
You may either scan a painting directly if it is small enough to fit on your scanner, or you may take a digital photo. Scans of regular photos may also be accepted if the quality is good enough. When taking photos of your work, make sure the work fills the frame of your camera. Usually the frame of the picture should be cropped for a clean look on our site, so if you need to angle it slightly to avoid glare of lights, that's OK. Please make sure there is no light or flash glare on framed work photos.
Size of images: Images should be resized to a maximum of 600 pixels for the longest edge. (i.e. 600 x 400 for a landscape format, or 400 x 600 for a portrait format. Also, DO NOT send pictures of high resolution. 72 dpi is adequate for Internet viewing, and helps prevent viewers enlarging and making prints of your work for free! Please adjust your scanners! Note, you will be limited to 20 photos per member. If you need help, contact Deanne.
Naming files: Please name the file on a disk the actual title of the painting, or make a note of it in an e-mail. Also, make sure to note the medium you created the work with.
