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!

All the ones that were just submitted have been processed.
Thanks guys!
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.

I uploaded a few. Sadly, I'm a lousy photographer.

Never mind. I overlooked the second part of this sentence:

- do not submit copyrighted images, or other images found on the Internet. [italics mine]

Drat!

Just went through everything that had been submitted since yesterday.

There were a lot of really good quality sources in there and the amount of sources in the voting pool has more than doubled 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!
