Electronic Submissions of Images (by email or on disk) – sizes/formats
  • Picture Formats
    • Send the appropriate number of images each of which should be at least 500 pixels on their longest side – I will reduce them as necessary
    • Please don’t ask me to choose from several – it’s your page and your works, and you’re the one who can best decide!
    • The quality of images I seek to publish on the web (to avoid other people nicking them and doing anything useful with them) means I will publish them with a file size of no more than 100Kb or so each.
    • If you wish to reduce the size of large images to ease the bandwidth used, by all means do so – if you have a graphics package that generates JPG files, a scan of a 6″x4″ photo at 100dpi with a compression option for low compression higher quality gives files of about the right size
    • I don’t mind large files, I’ll do the scaling and framing as necessary – I have broadband, so the size doesn’t matter to me, but if you’re sending from a dial-up link, it’ll certainly worry you
    • Bottom Line – If the images you send me are any smaller than about 500 dots x 500 dots, they won’t look right on the screen
  • Words in your statement
    • My guidelines from the Executive Committee are for no more than about 200 words or so for each page
    • I have neither artistic talent not journalistic skills – I’m just the technician who does what you ask of me – I copy and paste where possible to ensure I achieve what you ask (including capitals, punctuation, spelling and grammar!)
Sending by E-Mail
  • Please attach the photos as separate jpg images (don’t embed them in the email, or in a microsoft word document – they lose too much quality when transmitted that way!)
  • Include enough information in the email to allow me to join up photos with words eg:
    • file: js Arkle.jpg – Title: Arkle – Information: 50cm x 80cm – Oil on Canvas – Painted as a commission, now hangs in the Smith Gallery in New York
  • Include your 200 words or so of biography or statement as an attached word document or directly in the body of the email
  • send them to
Sending  by Post:
  • CDs or DVDs
    • separate images for each work you are submitting
    • Include somewhere enough information to allow me to join up photos with words eg:
      • file: js Arkle.jpg – Title: Arkle – Information: 50cm x 80cm – Oil on Canvas – Painted as a commission, now hangs in the Smith Gallery in New York
    • word document with biography or statement – a maximum of 200 words of text to appear on your page
    • If you require disks to be returned please provide appropriately-addressed (stamped) return envelope and packing.
  • Photographs
    • Good photographs of your work, each marked on the back with your name, medium and title of the picture, plus any special copyright information and whether you are a Full Member, Associate or Friend
    • A maximum of 200 words of text to appear on your page
    • A stamped, self-addressed envelope for return of the photographs
