Becoming a Contributor

  1. Sign the contract (see a sample contract). As you will see, this is just to establish a formal working relationship and to spell out our mutual obligations. It can be withdrawn by either party with a 30-day notice. The contract will assign you a number range to use when naming your files.


  1. Prepare your images. You will need three versions of each image:
    1. A full resolution (minimum 4 megapixel) version (this will be stored off the web and provided only upon request), to be named XXXXXX.jpg (for example, PICT1234.jpg)
    2. A full display version: 600 pixels on the longest dimension (this is the largest version available on the web site), to be named XXXXX_L.jpg (for example, PICT1234_L.jpg)
    3. A thumbnail preview: 100 pixels on the longest dimension, to be named XXXX_S.jpg (for example, PICT1234_S.jpg)
  1. Prepare your file of photo descriptions. A text file should accompany each batch of images you submit. It should be plain text (use Notepad or "Save as..." text from standard word processors).


  1.  When appropriate, use subject terms that are already in use on the site. If an appropriate subject does not exist yet, feel free to make one up, but I reserve the right to edit the selection. Photos should generally always have the name of the location where they are taken, as well as any larger geographic area of which it is a part (for example, a photo taken in Poland would also get the subject descriptor "Poland than place for example: Malbork").          So: a) Poland a1)Malbork :with description
  1. Submit your pictures to Hubert Bartosz. You can either attach Pictures to an email message, or contact me so I will set up FTP server account to upload your files using FTP client.
