Photo Guidelines

  • Provide 6-12 photos
  • Include one photo that includes the full group of garments
  • Include your inspiration photo
  • Additional 4-10 photos of various outfit combinations (these can be on you, dress form, rack, hangar, laying on furniture, whatever you prefer)
  • Every garment must be shown in at least two outfits (as per the rules) with the exception of your two wildcards
  • Composite photos are allowed (but not required); however they are limited to a main photo and two smaller inserts
  • Photos should be sized to fit the page without scrolling.
  • Photos should be posted by Wednesday 8 May


The 2019 SWAP Gallery has already been created.  You can find it here:
http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php?action=gallery;cat=34

SWAP 2018 Photo gallery for examples from last year:
http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php?action=gallery;cat=10

If you have any questions regarding the guidelines please post them here.  If you need help regarding uploading photos and such you may want to ask in the sandbox.  I will be gone  from Friday 26 April until Sunday 5 May so I will answer before I leave or after I get back. This is why I am giving a couple extra days for creating the gallery.  DL told me the gallery should work the same as last year so you may find some information on last years posting guidelines for more detailed information.

Thanks for the rules, mudcat. I started taking pictures, as the weather is fine today. Could not photograph all, as some items are in the wash. Good sign, I guess!  :D

The link to the gallery does not work, nor the link to last years. In fact, I cannot find the gallery at all on the site - but maybe that's just a temporary issue. We'll see.

The gallery is down at the moment because of the forum upgrade.  I'll have it back in service as soon as I can.

I've added some photos to the galley, which are ones I previously took of some of my SWAP, but may not be the final ones. However it worked fairly painlessly for me and hopefully others can view them.

I'm not sure if the gallery still isn't working or if it's a permissions thing.  I can see Ruthie's photos, but don't have an option to add to it. 

[ETA]  Ignore that.  I joined the "SWAP Contestant" Group and now have the options to add photos :D

Good hint, treefrog. I wouldn't have known. Thanks.

I know this is a silly question, mudcat, but am assuming we can post until midnight May 8?

mudcat

Yes midgnight MST (arizona time ... we don't do daylight savings here).

stephaniecan

Thanks, mudcat! I am in Italy right now so midnight will come earlier and I will be in bed at midnight MST! I may replace a few of my shots today if I can do better. Some are pretty grainy.

DragonLady

SWAP contestants: for the various collections to appear together for viewing as a collection, each image uploaded must be numbered consecutively by the person uploading:

Stephanie's Acqua Alta inspiration 1
Stephanie's Acqua Alta inspiration 2
Stephanie's Acqua Alta inspiration 3
etc.


Otherwise, they won't be sorted properly.

DL: not sure how to do it. When I click in the gallery overview on [EDIT] beneath my own pictures, I get an error message: 'You are not allowed to edit that item in this category. '. I already logged out and on again, and the system does seem to know those are my picture, as it shows the edit-link (and does not with other's pictures). Any tips?
Eva

Morzel

Treefrog, how did you get to sort your pictures into a separate undercategory within the SWAP gallery?

It's okay; I just discovered we still have some issues with the gallery.  I'll be manually moving the collections into separate categories as I have in the past.

Ok, I just realized I had two garments that weren't in two pictures, and I need to switch out a couple of photos.  But I can't edit or delete...I get the 'you can't edit (delete) pictures in this category.  Help?

(looks at photos again)

Well...I guess if you count the 'outfits' as shown in the 'everything all together' pic,  those two things ARE shown with different combos, so maybe I'm good.  Nevermind. Whew.

Thanks so much, DL!  So much easier to see everyone's collections now!  You rock!

I'm also having terrible trouble. Flicker is not loading my photos, and I cannot figure out how to get photos posted to the gallery. I may post them in my thread tonight, if I can get that to work.

I am a bit upset that the photos of my SWAP are the only ones that are not turned right side up. I went to edit them just now and I do not have permission to rotate them b/c I do not have permission to edit. In addition, Dragon Lady turned one of my photos to an odd angle, and again I cannot remedy b/c moving the photos to my own SWAP gallery locked me out of being able to edit them. Maybe this is my fault for not checking the site until this evening. I didn't expect to have this problem. I posted the photos the other day, well in advance of the deadline. Can you assist? I don't know what to do at this point. Luz Clara

mudcat

I don't have access.

DragonLady

Everyone, I know we're having problems with the gallery. 

@luz clara Clara, when I get a few hours to work on it, I will manually turn your images around and re-upload them.

@warpjr1965 you should be able to upload yours to the main 2019 SWAP category as everyone else did, then I'll move them to your own category.

In the meantime, I'm trying to determine why it's not letting you all do these things yourself, as it clearly says you each have the board's permission.

Also, everyone, remember you MUST be a member of the "SWAP contestants" group to upload images to the SWAP galleries.  To join, hit the "down" arrow next to your name on the upper left corner of the forum header, and click the "group membership" link.  There's a "join group" button to the right of the SWAP Contestant name, and when you push it you'll automatically be added to the group.

@luz clara  Your images are all rotated around.  Do take a quick look to make sure I didn't mess anything up, okay?

I can't click on Luz Clara's pics to see them in detail...I get an error... 'You do not have permission to full image detail page in this category '  So, while it's nice to see them right-side- up, we still can't look closely....I can click on photos on the other collections with no problems.

Nope...still get the error message for Luz Clara's pics.

Lisa Laree

I am seeing 4 of Luz Clara's pics on the Gallery home page also; dunno if that has anything to do with the errors we're getting.

(checks)  It is the first four pics of her collection, but if I click on a picture that's not one of the four I get the same message.

DragonLady

ONLY on luz Clara's pics?  If so, maybe I just didn't give those the right permissions when I uploaded them.

Yay!  That fixed it!  Thanks!

Since there were problems with the gallery and I dropped the ball on mentioning the naming convention  I will extend the deadline until tomorrow (Sat) MST.

Sorry for any convenience.
