I’m including the quote from the email received announcing whether you were selected or not. I’m sorry to have attributed it to Ricky, but since he was the one who did the video on how to photograph the quilts, I made an assumption that it came from him. Apologies if I was wrong. This information just hit me the wrong way. To me, it suggests we should be embarrassed about showing the photos of our quilts.
I will say I tried to upload a high definition photo from my good SLR camera and the website would not accept it, saying the file was too large. I ended up having to take the photos with my iPhone. I recall several other people having the same problem.
To leave someone’s photo out of showing them to everyone because they couldn’t get a professional looking photo is not nice IMHO.
From the email:
“Photography Is Important
Poor quality photographs (skewed, poorly lit, blurry, etc.) often results in a quilt being removed from consideration. TQS plans to share many quilts online, but quilts which are poorly photographed do not represent the quilt or the quilt maker in the best light.”
You are quite right TammiD, I know as I am one of the testers. So the entry is being tweeked so it is as user friendly as possible, and then will be made available. I think Wendy hopes it will happen this week, so no panic sueandsew. I think an email will go out to all participants once it is available.
I always go straight to the IMQE page, through the Connect button at the top of the page, then Member groups. Once IMQE comes up I click on that, and it takes me straight to this page. No problem. My problem is forgetting to log in and then wondering why I can't answer anything!! DUH! If you click View All Discussions above, you will get everything that has been posted, I think! For all the important information go to Announcements on the Group Page.
