Suggested actual specifications and language of policy:
Bring your prints into the CPJ office in CAB 316. The images must be large enough to be scaled down to a width of at least 800 pixels.
Photos should be emailed to email@example.com.
Attach your photos as a .jpg
include, in the body of your email, an web address that link directly to the image you would like to have published.
please include the following information in your email
phone and email
a short description of the photo
Photos should not be smaller than 800 pixels wide.
Photos smaller than this may not retain their quality after being uploaded to the CPJ website.
Most of the website submission policy for photos will focus on size. There are a couple things to consider when setting these guidelines, including how large will the photo ( both file sized and actual photo).
After talking with Seth and Kristina it seems that we do want photos smaller than 800 pixels wide. If we have the resolution of the photos at 72 pixels for inch, the file sizes should not be too large and the photos shouldn't take too long to load on the website.
One point Kristina brought up is that we do not want the CPJ website to be a dumping ground for drunken party photos.
More questions should we expect hard copies of photos. If so, what specifications should we have to maintain the quality of the image, after it is scanned edited and posted?
