About the Sportz Shotz Gallery
Our Sportz Shotz Gallery was created as an easy way for Us and our Members to easily share and showcase photos from local sports such as athletes, teams, youth sports events, professional sports events, etc... We showcase photos on our frontpage and in our newsletters such as Random Photos, Most Viewed Shotz and the Highest Rated Shotz. Members are encouraged to add their Sportz Shotz and view, rate & comment on other shotz by other Members (heck, from time to time we'll jump in the mix and rate a few ourselves!).
Think You Have A Hot Sportz Shot? Have A Sportz Shot You'd Like To Share? What Are You Waiting For? Start adding your shotz and start telling your friends and family to get voting!!! We may even give out some type of Awards in the future...
Next, Getting Started...
First Things First, to be able to upload a Sportz Shot to our Sportz Shotz Gallery you MUST be a Registered User of our site (either a General Member or Insider). If you are not yet a Member, please register now before proceeding.
Important Note: Members may only upload to THEIR own gallery! Adding a photo to anywhere else will result in a warning at first and then removal from the site, including removal of their membership, upon further incident. If a member accidently uploads a photo to a category other than their own, the member must notify us IMMEDIATELY! Failure to do so will result in the incident being deemed intentional and will result in us using the actions mentioned above.
Once you register and login, a user sub-category is automatically created in our Member Sportz Shotz category. Don't worry if you don't see it right away, though your personal sub-category has been created it has not yet been published. This is done to prevent the Member Sportz Shotz Gallery from being filled with empty sub-categories for members who may never upload any Sportz Shotz. Publishing your subcategory is easy to do:
First, make sure you are logged-in (Thanks to DYFL for letting us use their profile):
Second, Go to the Sportz Shotz Gallery and click on the User Panel link, then select Categories:
Third, Click the Red X under Published:
That's it! You can now add shotz to your own gallery...
Next, Organize Your Gallery with Sub-Categories
Organize Your Gallery with Sub-Categories
Adding Your Sportz Shotz to your Gallery is just a start, you may want to organize your photos into sub-categories for better viewing (especially if you will be adding a lot of Shotz).
Doing this is very simple:
Go back to the User Panel and Select Categories Again:
Now Select New Category:
Now Enter The Info for Your Sub-Category:
Make Sure You Make Your Main Category the Parent Category for Your Sub-Category!
Next, Prepare Your Photos for Upload...
Prepare Your Photos for Upload
Now that you have your category and/or sub-categories published, it's time to prepare your Sportz Shotz for uploading...
Before uploading your Sportz Shotz it is important to know that our gallery has a size requirement that must be meet before you can upload a photo. Due to server restrictions we have to limit the Max Size of a Photo to no more than 1,000px (pixels). This means that neither the Width or Height (ex. 1000x1000 or 1000x700, etc..). Trying to upload anything larger than that may (and most likely will) result in an error and failure of uploading a photo to the gallery.
Since most camera's take photos that are larger than what we require, it is necessary to resize your photos before uploading them. Almost all camera's save photos in a JPEG (.jpg) format which helps since there is an easy (and Free) program to help you in resizing your photos. Download the JPEG Resizer (Link) program and open it:
Select the Photos you want to resize:
Select the Size: Use Smart JPEG Resizing and for pixels put 1000
Now Select the Output
That's It! Your photos are now ready to be uploaded!
Next, Uploading Your Sportz Shotz...
Uploading Your Sportz Shotz
There are two ways to upload your photos:
1) Single Images - You can choose to select your photos one by one (up to 10 photos in one upload):
