It’s time to start submitting your photos for the 2020 calendar! Photo entry for the calendar is for current Members of GALT and their greyhounds and/or their foster hounds. It doesn’t matter where you adopted your greyhound, but you must be a member of GALT for calendar entry. Get your membership here if you haven’t already: http://www.greytstore.com/category_s/1906.htm
The best rule of thumb for images large enough to go to print nicely is to set your digital camera to the largest format it will take.
Somewhere in the range of 8” X 10” at 300 dpi/ppi, or 1280 X 960 ppi or above is ideal. 640 X 480 ppi is the absolute lowest resolution that can be used. If your file is only 100 KB to 20 KB, it's way too small.
Social media platforms reduce the size of posted photos, so please send the original instead of downloading from Facebook or other social media. JPEG, TIFF, PNG or BMP are acceptable formats. Smart phone cameras have greatly improved and are capable of large format photos. Lighting and steady focus can still pose a challenge, just like with any camera. If you’ve done any photo editing yourself, please send a copy of the original, too. If photos are very large, you’re welcome to send them one or two at a time.
Now for the tough part: please limit the number of photos you send to six. The calendar is for greyhounds, large sighthounds and sighthound mixes only; no other pets, babies or people in the photos, please. Although we tend to give higher priority to those who didn’t make the calendar the previous year, please don’t let that discourage anyone from sending photos, even if your Greyhound got a large photo in 2019.
Email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your name(s) with the dogs’ names in the email, and the word “calendar” in the subject!!!
The deadline for 2020 Calendar Sponsor ad graphics and information is August 18, 2019.
If you wish for your dog’s photo to be used for the month of your sponsorship, please submit a high resolution (at least 8”X 12” horizontal at 300 dpi) photo that is season-appropriate or neutral for the month you sponsor.
