Why we have limits for Image Evaluation and Digital Image Competition files

It's for practical reasons. The Club's digital projector has a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels and this determines the maximum file dimensions for Digital images.

We expect that there will be more images submitted for the Digital Image Competition rounds than for Image Evaluation. For this reason, and because we plan to display the Digital Image Competition entries on our website, it's important to limit the impact of large files on website performance, and on the mailboxes of the Electronic stewards.

Limiting the size of competition images will also be more considerate of judges who may not be on high speed internet connections.
