Photo galleries: request for submissions

Dear Friends,

We are in the process of phase 2 of our site-wide update.  One thing that we want to do is have a repository of photo galleries of Orthodox events: Church services, church buildings, clergy, conferences, etc etc etc.  If you have photogalleries that you would like to share with the world via our site, please send them to me at anastasios0513@yahoo.com as a zip file with a detailed description of what the event is--it would be helpful if you annotated each picture in your email as well.  If you want to email the photos individually that is fine too.

I propose that anything submitted would become joint copyright between you and the administrators of OrthodoxChristianity.net.

Let's try to get a massive collection of photos demonstrating the beauty and vibrancy of our faith!

Do you have any standards for minimum/maximum size, resolution, file format, etc?

I know you could change any of the above, but I also know how helpful it can be if you get the files in the right format to begin with.

Also, how would you like the description: accompanying text file with captions for all, or detailed filename?
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

I would prefer jpgs, although png works, and maximum size of 150k per pic.  I can automatically resize pictures at home with a utility but you are right, it would be helpful to fix them ahead of time for me.  I prefer a text file with descriptions (maybe rename the files 1, 2, 3, 4 and then in the file you can put 1: Bp So and So, 2: St Tikhon's) etc.  Make sure that events have dates as well.

Thanks for helping me clarify what we are looking for.

Yours in Christ,

Anastasios
