How to resize a portrait photo for submission to a club projected image competition; these competitions are for fully paid up members only.
Open the image required for resizing in Adobe Photoshop.
On portrait photo the maximum height is 1050 pixels, so type 1050 in the box as shown (don’t worry about the width, leave it alone as this will be sorted later on with the canvas) then click OK.
Type in the width box 1400 (this will set the maximum width, and DO NOT TYPE in anything on the height box as this should be 1050 as previously set earlier) . At the bottom of the box there is a select ” canvas colour ” make sure it is black , then click on the OK .
The image is now resized 1050 pixels ( max height ) and 1400 pixels ( max width ) , the black bands at the side are screen fillers for when it’s projected… now save it (it’s best to set up a new folder called “club comp photo” you do not want to re-save over your original photo).
Rename your photo as shown, your ”TITLE” (upper case ) and your “name” ( like this with the title – THE BIG PICTURE by Alan Griffiths ) your first name and surname must be in cap lock and the rest in lower case.
