    When you put it into your computer from the camera, don't make it smaller. Just save it as is. If your computer picture program automatically re-sizes your pictures, then I don't know what to tell you. DON'T use photobucket for this contest because photobucket automatically re-sizes the pictures to smaller (less pixels) pictures.

    Do you put your pictures into a picture program that is loaded on your computer BEFORE you put them into photobucket? You just write up your email to the photo contest address, then click on "attach" and look for the picture in your computer and attach it to the email.

    Laurie...go with your gut! I did a poll last year...and then went with an entirely different photo. As it turned out, I finished second to Greg!

    I think it's a good idea. 30 day membership is reasonable, a lot of people don't stick around.
