    Hi folks,

    Thanks to those of you who provided theme suggestions. As you can see we've decided that the October '07 theme is going to be "Window". Good luck everyone and as always please don't forget to read the boring, but important stuff down below :).

    Please email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com and remember to enter the subject as indicated.

    All photos must include the form when submitted. Just copy and paste it into your email. This will ensure that no mistakes are made when photos are submitted and therefore, hopefully, no photos are excluded. If the form is not included in the submission email the photo will not be included in the challenge gallery and voting process.

    There is more important information regarding rules and procedures located in the FAQ section. We highly recommend that you take the time to read these FAQs.
    Good luck to everyone and have fun with this challenge!

    *150KB will be taken as the “size on disk” and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as oppposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger then they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    No, I had recently heard a story about the world's dwindling supply of "1"'s so I was making an effort to conserve. Now that I think about it I believe it was actually a story about how fewer babies are being named "Juan". In any event it has been corrected to read "sept07photo11".

    errrm are you sure about this? "Size on disk" is the result of how the disk is formatted and so 150kb on my pc might be a lot different on yours. Unless there's a bigger picture I'm not seeing I think it should be Actual file size - but hey it's not my comp :0)

    You're right depending on the cluster size used the "size on disk" maybe different on each computer.

    Feel free to check into this, but I'm pretty sure the cluster size for NTFS volumes above 2GB is 4KB. Most FAT drives would most likely have a larger cluster size. I know a 32GB FAT32 drive would use 16K clusters. I'm not sure what file system macs use so I wouldn't know about their cluster size. I have NTFS on my disk, which would probably mean some photos may actually appear smaller when I received it.

    To be honest with you that statement was put in a long time ago when I was using an older version of Outlook which read attachment size based on the size on disk. It hasn't really been a problem.

    I took three shots for this but I am not happy with any of them. I'm out

    A pole will be opened in this subforum for several days after the deadline has passed. "Oct '07 Challenge Photos - "Window"" is what you'll be looking for.
