How can I get my exif data to appear automatically?

There are a couple of ways to make sure you save all the metadata with your image.

When saving from your computer, make sure you use 'Save as'. When saving from Photoshop, go to file > Save for web and devices. On the right under the image information you will see a dropdown for Metadata. Click on the dropdown and you can choose to keep all data or just copyright and contact information.

You are not required to resize your photos to upload them to the ePHOTOzine gallery. In fact, we strongly recommend that you upload the full size version of your photo as our system will automatically resize your photo for you as long as your photo meets the following criteria:

Under every photo there is a green "Vote" button apart from photos with the critique option. The reason for this is that the users who upload these photos are looking for comments stating what is good about the photo and what they can improve upon.

How do I delete a photo from my portfolio/gallery?

From your Portfolio page (or via the gallery), click on your photo you would like to delete and open it.

Below the image there should be a cog with the word 'Options' next to it. Click on this and the Photo Options menu will appear. The second one down is the 'delete photo' option.

When you delete a photo you will also lose any comments and any votes or awards that it had.

You can only upload a modification on another photo where this has been allowed.

What is an RC and how do I get one?

An RC is short for Reader's Choice and is awarded automatically to any Photo that reaches 30 votes.

Some images uploaded may not be suitable for viewing by the younger members of this site, or some members may not wish to view such images.

Why can't I upload more than one photo?

We only allow 1 photo upload per day to the Main Gallery so everyone gets a good chance of comments on their pictures.

What is the 'Shortlist' button for?

This option is for adding the photo to your user award shortlist. The shortlist allows you to keep a small list of photos that you might give your award to.

Critique can be a great way for those new to photography to gain helpful feedback on images from members on site that wish to provide constructive criticism to help other members improve their images.

It's difficult to be specific. The site is generally at its busiest between the hours of 4:00pm and 8:00pm UK time, and usually busy from 8:00am to 12:00pm. This does vary from day to day.

We introduced this with the intention of solving an annoying problem for many members - where other members have been deleting and re-uploading several times a day. This practice is really a backdoor route around our 'one upload a day' limit which is in place for the good of everyone and our server.

Why is my photo that received a Reader's Choice award not showing?

Photos that are selected for Reader's Choice Awards are added to the Readers Choice page in the order that they were uploaded, not when they receive the award.

So if your photo has been on ePHOTOzine for a few weeks or more it may be several pages back in the gallery.

How do I use the Gallery filter?

When in the Photo Gallery, you can filter down the photos you see by typing keywords into the 'Filter' box.

Click on the 'Filter' button to display the filter options. The drop-down on the left-hand side allows you to choose a specific gallery to filter.

Type your required tags into the field and then click 'Apply' to see matching images.

I uploaded a photo but it looks really small on site. Why is this?

We don't upsize images as this will result in very poor quality. If your photo appears small, this will be because you uploaded a photo which is no bigger than 600x600 pixels. We recommend uploading the full resolution version of your photo.

Our idea is to rate a comment/critique, like the mark as helpful option in the forums.

Can I advertise my product or service in the Gallery?

Please don't post advertisement images about products or services in the gallery. Any images we deem to be such will be removed.

If you are interested in advertising your product or service please contact us.

Why has the number of comments I've made changed?

From time to time, we purge our database of data relating to photos that have been deleted.

When this happens, all associated comments are deleted, as there's no point storing comments for a photo that doesn't exist.

When this happens, the number of comments you've made will decrease. This is nothing to worry about.

Why does my photo have more clicks than comments?

Not everyone has time/wants to comment. A click is a sign of appreciation, a comment takes longer to add and, because of this, the click number may be higher.

How do I upload an image?

To upload an image, click on the cloud symbol with an arrow in it on the menu bar, next to your profile name.

You need to be logged in and have an account with us to upload an image.

ePHOTOzine has an Plus-only option which allows the Plus member to hide the voters names on their photos from other members.

Why do my uploaded images look dull and flat compared to other images?

This can happen if you use Adobe RGB (1998) colour space.

Make sure that you convert your image to sRGB before you upload for best results.
