logroom 01To add a photo to the Crew Gallery, follow these simple instructions. It may help to print them out or open them in a new page in your browser so you can refer to them during the process.

a) Prepare your photo. First it needs to be digital, which means if it is still a paper copy, it must be scanned or 'digitized'. If you have a scanner, or have a friend with one, super! If you don't, please contact the Site Administrator, who will make arrangements with you to have you send your photos, slides, or negatives, have them scanned, and then returned to you as soon as possible.

a.1) Scan your photo in color (even if it is black and white), at the highest resolution possible with your scanner.

a.2) Using image management software like iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, Photoshop, or any other image adjusting software that you have, convert the image back to black and white (only if it was originally) and save it as a .jpg file whose maximum dimensions are less than 1500 pixels in the long direction, and less that 2MB total file size.

NOTE: The number one cause for failure to upload is A file too large. Maximum file size is 2MB.

b) When you have your digital file, go to Up Scope! >> Crew Gallery >> Your Images >> Upload New Images.

c) From the available tabs, choose an appropriate upload mechanism. Only one or two images to go to a single category? Choose Single Images. Many files going to different categories with more than one per category? Choose Drag 'n' Drop Upload. Many images going to one category in a .ZIP file? Batch Upload. Want ease of choosing and uploading, Choose the Java Upload (may require you to install a plug-in - easy enough to do.)

d) Use the BROWSE button, drag and drop, or the Java application to choose the image file or files (.jpg) you wish to upload.

e) Choose a Category from the pop-up list. If no suitable Category exists, cancel out of the Upload, go to Up Scope! >> Crew Gallery >> Your Images >> Manage Your Images, and click the Category button, which will take you to a page that will let you create a new appropriate category.

i) If you wish, add a Description of the image, including any names of individuals or helpful identifying info that you can. If you have multiple files, the same description will be added to each of them.

j) Click the UPLOAD button when you are complete to save the changes and return to your User Panel, or click Cancel to leave the information unmodified.

If you receive an error message, check your image size - it must be less than 1500 pixels in both directions. Resize accordingly and try again.

That's all there is to it. Contact the Site Administrator if you encounter difficulties, or need to have your photos, slides or negatives scanned.
