Web Format Images Reduce File Size
Images must be JPG, JPE or JPEG Format.

Modern camera's produce images of very large file size, uploading them may result in 'time out' errors if the internet is slow or cause application errors when being sized down. Uploading web format (72dpi, < 3000px ) images significantly reduces file sizes and reduces potential 'time out' and image resizing issues.
Submissions with images will automatically receive 1 'Like' in our rating system.
