Import Notice – PDI Image Sizes

Canon XEED WUX500.

We will be using our new projector for all future PDI and Print competitions. The new projector has a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels and we shall now allow the maximum PDI size to be 1600×1200, in line with PAGB guidelines for their competitions.

While we shall continue to accept images of 1400×1050 pixels, it should be noted that these will display around 90% of the size of 1600×1200. The colour space is unchanged and remains sRGB.

Images designed to be shown on the TV should be sized to 1920×1080, this applies to North Mundham PDIs, Spring Exhibition PDIs and Annual Exhibition PDIs.

The old projector shall continue to be used for Groups and meetings in the small hall.

1st Meeting Multimedia Group 13th December 2017

I am pleased to announce the first meeting of the Multimedia Group will take place in the small hall at Tangmere Centre at 19:30 on Wednesday December 13th 2017.

Following a short introduction and discussion about the aims for the group for the year, the very distinguished Graham  Sergeant FRPS and award winning AV author (see here) will present a gentle introduction to AV.

Following the break, Pete Bamforth ARPS and member of the Focus Group will give a talk about the production of photo books. As many will know, Pete has produced a wide range of photo books with different publishers and he will explain the steps involved and hopefully the pitfalls to avoid.

It promises to be a great evening so do come along. Like all group meetings this is open to members of other clubs.

Multimedia Group

The Multimedia Group is for exploring ways of presenting your images as an Audio Visual, or perhaps as a Book. You may be interested in mixing video and images or publishing images to the web. Perhaps you always meant to make a film?

All of us amass thousands of images, AV and books are great ways of sharing and presenting your work.

The group is suitable for all levels of photographers, we will try to meet each month and the meeting will give you an opportunity to discuss projects you are working on, we will have speakers and tutorial sessions on creating AVs, books and films.

The group will try to be technology neutral so Mac or PCs are welcome.

The group organiser is Jeff Owen.

1st Club/Intermediate Print Competition

Just a reminder that entries for these competitions need to be in by Thursday the 9th of November. Prints should be placed in the appropriate boxes at Tangmere and PDIs need to be uploaded (1400×1050 sRGB, JPEG) through the relevant upload sites.

Due to commitments by the competition secretaries it will be very difficult to accept late entries, so don’t leave things till the last moment!
