    Default Asking a super general question... esp those going SAM...

    I'm still sorting the images for slideshow...

    but i'm in this super dilemma... i've been viewing images for many nights, many rounds, and some of you have been contacted about their images being selected for prints...

    Now...

    i see alot of great works... but... images are too small to be displayed nicely on the monitors...

    should i...

    1) Delete the images?
    2) Let the image remain but you guys have to squint.

    i have pics in about 300+ x 200+ kinda image... using a 1920x1200 monitor now is a torture, i practically have to stick my face near to the screen...

    Althou its a maybe say 3 sec per pic slide show, but i just hope that by chance or something ppl can view each and everyone of the images... hmm, maybe abit far fetch...

    Hi Del_CtrlnoAlt Moderator


    Thank you for rating my photos. It helps me to understand my standard amongst the many beautiful pictures in clubsnap.


    May I check with you what ever has happened to my photos that were uploaded, because I dont seem to be able to find them anymore in my profile .


    Thank you.


    Kepture : )

    --> They're hidden from normal view to facilitate easier sorting. I'm not sure if we're going to reopen them again. Will check back and let you know.

    Hi,


    When I receive your pms on ratings of my photos, it doesn\'t mean that it\'s selected right? Just want to check. Thanks for your ratings


    Regards,
    Carmen

    --> Well, i've given alot of different number ratings, i din know that it will send pms to every pic i've rated. but nevertheless, don't be discouraged by the number of stars. in fact, its kinda funny how i put the numbers, some get 8 or 10 stars may not even get their picture printed. cos its my way of sorting into category, i have a separate list i write down for prints. Its hard to remain constant when rating so many pics in a short time.

    Hi I uploaded 44 photos in this forum (for the competition) but somehow now they are all gone. Sorry I am new here and I am not sure if you are the right person to ask. But since you are giving marks to those photos for the competition so I guess maybe you could gimme the clue... Thank you for your time.


    Cheers,


    Liang

    --> thanks for your uploads, those images are still in the server. Its not a competition, rather, a request for members to upload images to showcase works from Clubsnappers.

    Hence i was reminded by a senior mod that, please do not use your perfectionist view to look at every image, else i think none of the images will be selected by you... yes thats how critical i am... so after clearing my mind from it, i viewed alot of the pics and well, minus away those disqualified, i still have alot of images to choose from. In fact, its hard to actually choose which pic i want... its like all of a sudden, all seem nice... dilemma again...

    probably if i have the time, maybe i can delete all the ratings and re-rate all the images again? will probably take a few years i guess...

    **from my gallery pm** think easier to reply here like that...

    still have alot of unreplied pms here.

    my suggestion, just delete those that are below standard (you are actually doing the photog a favour)
    and showcase the rest

    set the screen to a lower resolution then the postage stamp sized images will become bigger

    looks like your job is quite siong
    sorry that i could not be of more help this round

    load everything into iphoto then use the use the slideshow feature
    best is to turn off the music

    turn off the screen saver and the energy saver as well
