Any OCA member can upload astrophotos, using her/his credentials
Just go to the gallery here.
GIF, JPEG, PNG images are supported
This applies to both the dimensions (width/height)
and the physical size (in KB) of the images. I would
recommend you re-size your images to no larger than
1000 pixels wide. Also if your image is more than 150KB
can you please save it using a medium compression JPEG
setting which will hopefully make it smaller in size.
Thumbnail images of the files you submit are automatically
Please be careful in how you physically name your image
files. If necessary re-name them prior to uploading.
File names must not contain any "exotic" characters
such as a single quote character or the ampersand character.
Also the image gallery will be used by many members
and it is important that image file names do not clash
with one-another. For instance don't name your image
of the moon "moon.jpg". I would recommend
the following standard.
First: you need to login. There is a link
to the login page on the top right of the new Image
Second: you need to navigate all the way to the final folder (category) that you want to post your image to.
Uploading to top folders is not allowed.
Third: at the upper right corner below the blue ribbon when it says your name, click on the left most tiny icon which has a picture of a photo on top of the earth!
Fourth: Upload! If you encountered any errors, please retry, as the gallery script is quite old and prone to misbehavior. A new gallery is on the roadmap!
Note: When you add new images you will have an opportunity
to enter detailed Image Information against each image.
Please fill in as much information as you can. Some
of this information can be automatically created for
you from default information that you can define in
your member profile. Look at the new section at the
bottom of your memberprofile here.
The system allows you to edit/delete only your own
photos that you have uploaded. You will see some additional
icons below the thumbnails for images that you have
uploaded or are assigned to your user name.
