And the winners are...
After literally minutes of deliberation, we have chosen the winners of our opening week competition for the Flying Nun's Greatest Bits compilation, Tally Ho.
They are, in no particular order;
Tom Ackroyd for his instantly iconic picture of Richard Langston & Roger Shepherd.
Fooman for his beautiful photograph Waituhi lookout.
Please hit reply to this post, or my email link and let us know where to send the CDs.
Additionally, because we like the cut of his jibe, we decided to add an extra prize for Ian Dalziel for turning a negative into a positive with his yellow cab, parking lot ensemble.
Ian, we ran out of CDs, so Jonathan has offered to have one of the Flying Nun photos of your choosing printed at A5 size, on quality paper. Let us know your preference and where to send it.
Thanks again everyone for the great contributions to the opening week. Now the election is behind us, we'll be getting some more photographic distractions ready for you soon.
Upload Guide - of sorts.
These tips will go in the links section to the right of the main page and comments pages henceforth.
1) Size matters; We now recommend you reduce the file size to around 500 kilobytes if possible. In terms of image size, the images on the Capture gallery pages are 940 pixels wide. Of course if you have a panorama, or wider shot you want to share, these restrictions are just a guide.
Reducing to this size will also make it less likely your high resolution capture will be pilfered for use elsewhere.
2) Add text; The text will show under the image, like a caption, and must be added before the image is uploaded. No text, no upload.
3) Wait for it: If you refresh the page before the image has fully loaded, you will have a car park under your image [sic], which might be fun for Mr D, but probably not you.
4) .jpg best; The developers have sorted the JPG/jpg problem, but it is probably safest to use .jpg in general as the file type.
5) Help!; Use the email link if you encounter further problems.
If you have more helpful tips, please feel free to send those too. These are largely crowd-sourced guidelines as it is.
