The host clubs for the Regional salons are reporting that they are receiving digital images from clubs and individuals which are incorrectly sized.
In April this year the PSNZ Council made a decision to change the specification for digital images submitted to PSNZ events this year, and Canon Online from the beginning of next year. The new dimensions are a maximum of 1920 pixels wide and 1080 pixels high, as compared to the previous 1024 by 768.
As was the case with the previous size, you don’t need to fill up the whole allowable region. For most images, you just need to resize so it is exactly 1080 pixels high, and then it will be less than 1920 pixels wide (but do check). If the image is very panoramic, you may need to resize so it is 1920 pixels wide and it will end up being less than 1080 pixels high.
- to use it as is – in the example pictured here, the top part of an image submitted as 1920 by 1280 pixels may be clipped
- to contact you and ask you to resubmit in the correct size
- to resize the images for you – this will downsample the image and possibly result in a poorer quality than if you had resized yourself from the original image
All options can cause a lot of extra work for the host club, whose members are already generously donating their spare time to organise the salon for their region.
So, please endeavour to ensure that when you size and submit your projected digital images for the regional salons – both individual and interclub – that they are no more than 1920 pixels wide and no more than 1080 pixels high.
