Uploading images to PhotoContestPro

If you are not registered with Photo Contest Pro (PCP), please contact Gerry Bishop at gbishop60@comcast.net and he will register you so you can log in.

Also, your image should be sized to 2000 pixels on the longest side and saved as a JPEG in the sRGB color space. See the instructions on downsizing images if you don't know how. If you don't downsize your image, PCP will do it for you, and you might not like the results!

One more thing: If you plan on adding a border around your image, it’s best to do so before you downsize your image. (See the instructions for adding a border (if you don’t know how.)
