Image sizes

Following the purchase of a new projector and laptop the club is encouraging members to submit images for Competitions in a size of 1600 x 1200px.

Digital Images for entry into Northallerton Camera Club projected image competitions are now required to be a maximum of 1600 pixels wide x 1200 pixels high. This also suits the requirements for external competitions with organisations such as NCPF and PAGB.

The dimensions are straightforward for a landscape image, but note that for a portrait image the height can only be 1200 pixels high, not 1600. An acceptable landscape image could be 1600 pixels wide x 900, 1100 up to 1200 pixels high and an acceptable portrait image could be 1200 pixels high x 800 or 900 pixels wide.

A square image should ideally be 1200 x 1200 pixels. It makes sense to maximise the pixel dimensions of your image as far as you can, so in practice ensure that a landscape image has a width of 1600 pixels and a portrait image has a height of 1200 pixels.

Of course, we will still be accepting images sized differently, as long as they are below 1600 x 1200px. These won’t display at their best though, which is why we encourage submissions in the new size. A good source of information regarding the club is available on our Information & Knowledge Base Page.

Of course any image that is submitted as a print is not affected by the above. The same conditions apply for prints, as in mounts must be no bigger than 400 x 500mm and no smaller than 250mm x 200mm.
