Post subject:  GUIDELINES FOR POSTING QUALITY PICTURES

Well, now that we are currently "entrenched" in egg layings, pippings, and hatchings, this brings up the issue of quality pictures. For the most part, everyone is doing a great job with pictures, but occasionally some pics are posted, usually in haste, that aren’t quite up to snuff.

The main problems we run into with pictures are:
* A picture that is so large that it throws the whole page out of whack
* A picture that is too blurry and/or distorted, making it difficult to see what the heck the poster is trying to show

As administrators and moderators, we can certainly understand the reasons: looking for pips, hatches, etc.
But in an effort to maintain quality, we may occasionally do one of the following:
* Resize/crop/edit the pic ourselves.
* Ask the person who has posted the pic to resize, etc.
* If the picture is really blurry and/or distorted, and after trying to edit, we may delete the picture all together. If we do this, we will try to post a message in its place that the picture was deleted.

When posting pictures please make sure they are as great a quality as possible.
They should be clear and without distortion.
Pictures should measure at the widest about 800 pixels (About 8 inches). This will keep the forum width manageable. Anything over that will be rejected by the forum and you will need to resize.

Our goal with the forum is to encourage a world wide dialogue that educates and informs the followers of Bird Cams Around the World. A huge thank you to all for your great efforts in making this such a respected forum worldwide.

And remember: A good picture is worth more than a 1000 words!

Examples of unsuitable pictures- too blurry/distorted. Size is fine in all. You get the picture!!
