Image Specifications

All images must be high quality jpeg (jpg) image files. Set your camera to the highest possible quality image, use good lighting on your painting without any glass in front of it, and use a tripod for your camera. You must crop out all parts of the photo that are not the actual painting; do not show mat, frame, etc, only the painting itself. Please save at 72 dpi resolution, with a size of 1200-1500 pixels on the longer side of the image. The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.

Tutorials for image preparation are available on the ShowSubmit site.

Prepare your images using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!

Filename Instructions

Name your image files

Use the following protocol for giving your image file a name for submission: Start with your last name, followed by an underscore, followed by your first initial, followed by another underscore, then the title of the image without spaces, then make sure it has the extension ".jpg".

For example: Carson_R_SilentSpring.jpg.

Shorten long titles in the filename, please, and remove all spaces and quotation marks.

On the entry form in the box for Title do enter the actual title of the piece as you would want it to appear in the show catalogue.

For example: Silent Spring
