Guidelines for Submitting Images to
the Website and for Member Share

We want to encourage our members to make the NCPS website a valuable resource not just for ourselves, but also for people who may be interested in joining NCPS. Part of that involves sharing our photos. This page will give you the information you need in order to submit images to Member Galleries (see galleries tab) and Photo Shoot Galleries (see photo shoots tab), and will give you instruction on how to participate in Member Share at our general meetings.

Uploading to Photo Shoots (photo shoots tab):

Photo Shoots are a great way to meet fellow NCPS members and enjoy photography in the field at a variety of picturesque locations. If you have images from a Photo Shoot you'd like to share on our website, it is suggested that you size them with no dimension larger than 1024 pixels. The website automatically scales photos for you.

  1. Go to Members Login on the nc-photo.org website Home page banner.
  2. Log into your account by entering your user name and password to sign on.
  3. Choose the Photo Shoots tab.
  4. Highlight the photo shoot where you want to add images in the column on the left.
  5. Click on Upload new image at the bottom of the page.
  6. Select image/s from your computer. The upload process will begin.
  7. Add a title and click OK.
  8. To delete, select an image and click Delete Selected Image at bottom of the page. Start the process over to upload a new image.

Images should be uploaded no later than midnight on the Friday prior to the general meeting. This will give the photo shoot coordinator time to select images and prepare a slide show for viewing at the meeting. No exceptions and no images should be sent to the photo shoot coordinator by any other means.

If you would like to make a suggestion about places to have Photo Shoots, or comment on a past photo shoot, please send an email to NCPS Photo Shoot.

Uploading to Your Member Gallery (galleries tab):

Any member in good standing may have a gallery on our site. Members may have portfolios within their gallery. If you have images to add to your gallery, it is suggested that you size them with no dimension larger than 1024 pixels. The website automatically scales photos for you. Subject matter should be appropriate for family viewing. Please remember that our website may be viewed by children, at libraries or in businesses. The Webmaster and other members of the VLT will use their discretion when reviewing images in the galleries on this website

We encourage you to create and share your gallery with family and friends. There is no limit to the number of images you can post to your gallery at this time

The website automatically scales photos for you.

  8. If you need to change an image, first hit Delete above the image and start the upload process again.
