Bump. Fresh new sources needed.

A friendly reminder - we are running out of source images. You know what to do to avert the source queue meltdown. Go for it!

Rules are the same as before, repeated below for your convenience.

This is a call for PSC members to submit new original images for future contest sources.
The current queue of available images is depleting quickly and we need fresh ones.

Note: submitting new images and voting for future sources is available to Advantage users only.
Go to Advantage - Submit Originals.

Guidelines:
- file format: jpg
- image size: exactly 1280px x 960px, landscape orientation
- file size: under 600KB
- proper file naming: descriptive or creative, e.g. White Flower.jpg

- do not submit copyrighted images, or other images found on the Internet
- do not submit the same image numerous times
- do not submit series of photos of the same scene taken from different angles

- images should be of good quality, in focus, with no excessive noise
- phone camera photos usually end up being rejected
- if needed, crop, adjust levels and resize
- don't use excessive PS manipulations, filters, oversharpening, etc.

Go! Take Pictures! Submit!

Keep em' coming.

One other thing that can cause a number of your photos to get rejected is when you submit a bunch of photos that show repetitive landscapes / objects / subjects. Usually, the best one or maybe two of any such photos will be approved and the rest rejected.
Also, there's an overabundance of flowers in the source pool, so try to avoid those for now.

Just to repeat, two things to avoid that will help save time during approvals and increase your chances of getting images through:
1 - Unless you have a spectacular cell phone camera, avoid cell phone shots at all costs; they just don't look good / clear enough for the most part.
2 - Don't upscale images that were taken below the resolution requirement. A good number of images from this last group fell into this category and some of them would've made great sources, but the image quality was far too low and blurry / pixelated because of upscaling.

Also, we're starting to get an awful lot of cats in the queue now, might want to avoid those as well.

Feel free to keep the images coming!

I've got a bajillion photos I could submit but I'd have to format them all for PSC standards. -_-

Oh, and I'd have to have Advantage to even submit them? You guys are killing me.

Thanks. I've added some of these to the voting pool, but I also had to delete quite a few for being low quality, blurry or noisy.

Pretty strict, 29 rejected, 5 accepted, 4 in voting queue and 2 are mysteriously lost? Laughing

With a few the difference in quality is beyond me, hard to see... Shocked

And maybe it's an idea to use Wikipedia images with the appropriate license?
