The second round of our projected images competition took place last week, judged by Paul Adams ARPS DPAGB. The full scores are to be found as usual on our Results page, and the top scoring images can be seen here.
This week we held our annual three-way competition with Selsdon and Sevenoaks Camera Clubs. Each year we rotate hosting of the competition, and this year it was our turn, and it was very pleasing to welcome so many visitors from the other clubs to our hall in Godstone.
Three TPS members attended an outing on Sunday 31st October, to the Bluebell Railway for their Giants of Steam gala weekend.
TPS are visiting Brands Hatch on Sunday 13th November, for the BritCar Into the Night Race event. This presents the opportunity to practice your low-light photography skills.
Some members have been having problems meeting our new Competition specification for digital images, because of the asymmetric sizing requirements. Users of Picasa or PS Elements in particular have a problem because the programs do not offer the ability to change both dimensions. So instead I am suggesting a better solution, to use the freeware program IrfanView to perform the resizing. Full instructions are now included on the PDI Specification page.
For Mac users, the problem appears to be the Mail program – you have to ensure you have checked the “Actual Size” box when attaching images, or they will be sent much smaller than required.
