HOW TO SUB­MIT ON­LINE

Shutterbug - - Our Next Assignment -

1. Go to Shut­ter­bug.com and reg­is­ter. Scroll down the page and on the right side you will see a box for en­ter­ing your user­name and your pass­word. If you al­ready have reg­is­tered and/or sub­mit­ted im­ages for the Gal­leries you can skip this step. Re­spond to the ac­ti­va­tion e-mail. Regis­tra­tion is free. You will use your user­name and pass­word when­ever you visit or, with some sys­tems, it will au­to­mat­i­cally load for you when you visit Shut­ter­bug.com.

2. Check the as­sign­ment and clos­ing dates in the magazine. When the magazine is printed we will cre­ate an ap­pro­pri­ate gallery for your im­ages.

3. Se­lect and pre­pare your im­ages. We only ac­cept files at a max­i­mum 20MB size, JPEG for­mat. Save the JPEG at a qual­ity level of 10 or higher. Note that file size in your image folder di­rec­tory will de­ter­mine up­load size, not the “opened” file size, as JPEG com­presses at 1:4 at higher qual­ity rat­ings. If your im­ages do not load it prob­a­bly means you have ex­ceeded the file size or have not used JPEG for­mat.

4. Click on the Gal­leries tab on the home­page. In the Cat­e­gory sec­tion use the drop-down menu to se­lect the Pic­ture This! as­sign­ment. Note that im­ages are si­mul­ta­ne­ously loaded into the as­sign­ment cat­e­gory as well as your own per­sonal gallery. When the Pic­ture This! as­sign­ment dead­line date has lapsed the as­sign­ment gallery will be re­moved, but your image will still re­side in your own gallery.

5. In the De­scrip­tion box add ti­tle, cam­era, lens, ex­po­sure in­for­ma­tion, and your full name. Also add any other com­ments or anec­dotes you think rel­e­vant. If you sub­mit im­ages with an en­hance­ment through soft­ware be­yond con­trast, ex­po­sure, and sim­ple sat­u­ra­tion ad­just­ments please in­di­cate the soft­ware and “fil­ter” used to at­tain that ef­fect. We re­serve the right to edit com­ments as needed.

6. Click the Save but­ton at the bot­tom of the page to up­load the image.

7. You re­tain copy­right on the image.

8. We will choose the im­ages af­ter close of the due date.

9. Please feel free to com­ment on im­ages sub­mit­ted by other read­ers.

PLEASE NOTE: If the pho­to­graph in­cludes a mi­nor or a rec­og­niz­able in­di­vid­ual or group you are guar­an­tee­ing that you have a signed model re­lease form, and es­pe­cially a parental or guardian re­lease form for mi­nors. You should keep a copy of that re­lease in your files. Scan that re­lease and keep it handy. If an image is cho­sen for pub­li­ca­tion, fail­ure to pro­vide a form when re­quested will elim­i­nate the image from con­sid­er­a­tion. You can find re­lease forms at http://asmp.org/tu­to­ri­als/model-re­lease-mi­nor-child. html and other re­sources on the In­ter­net. By up­load­ing im­ages you at­test that the model re­lease form is valid, that any de­pic­tion of a per­son is with their con­sent, that you have a model re­lease form avail­able on re­quest, and that all im­ages you sub­mit have been made by you. If you have any ques­tions or prob­lems e-mail us at ed­i­to­rial@shut­ter­bug.com with Pic­ture This! in the sub­ject line.
