Welcome to Worcestershire Camera Club

Worcestershire Camera Club is a friendly club aiming to encourage the enjoyment and practice of photography. We hope our varied programme of talks and events will offer something for everyone to enjoy whether you're a novice just starting out or a qualified professional. Our new season starts in September but, for Club Members, our special interest groups continue during the summer.  The progamme is being presented via Zoom until further notice.

There's a wealth of information on the website, but if you're new to the club take a look at our weekly club magazine, Photonews for a taste of what we get up to. The Club  meets on Tuesday evenings during the season, September to May, with 4 special interest groups meeting on Thursdays throughout the year. You can find out more about joining the club by visiting this page...

Submitting Images for the WCC Website Slideshow

At the top of the Club’s website there is a slideshow:

 

I like to change the images every month, so I’m always after new photographs from our members. The images need to be 1200 pixels wide and 487 pixels high in order to fit in the space. You can set the dimensions in Photoshop or Lightroom using the directions below.

 

 

Creating images of the correct dimensions…

• In Photoshop

Note: Remember to work on a copy if you want to keep the original image.

Using the crop tool you can select the aspect ratio. In the options at the top of the page choose ‘Ratio’ and set 1200 px as the width, 487 px as the height. When you drag out your crop rectangle it will restrict the dimensions to the ratio specified. 

If you are using an older version of Photoshop, the options are slightly different, but the process is the same. Find the crop tool and set the ratio to 1200px x 487px.

Then go to the Image menu and select Image Size. Set the image to 1200 pixels by 487 pixels and the resolution to 72dpi. Then Save as a jpeg and send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

• In Lightroom

In the Develop Menu, select the ‘Crop & Straighten’ tool. There’s a drop down menu where you have the option to add a custom ratio - input 1200 x 487 (or 12 x 4.87). This will give you the correct ratio when you drag the handles of your crop window. When you're happy with the crop hit return to accept the selection.

 

When you export your image, make it a jpeg of 72 pixels per inch and set the width to 1200 pixels.

 

Then send your images to me! Email a jpeg to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.and don't forget to include your name so I can add a copyright note to each image.

Please have a go. If I haven’t explained something clearly, let me know so I can try again!

I look forward to receiving your images. Thank you.
