72ppi (8″ x 10″- or 10″ at the largest side)

Each image should be “saved as” your name and image number in the following format: john_doe_1.

Best Practice: Before uploading, save your images in a separate folder on your computer with a label indicating that the folder is for this class. Do not write over your original files but be sure to “save as” and keep the new images in this separate folder to maintain a record of when and how you used the images.

  • First, create a new post
  • Add title: your name_photographing
  • choose a block/ Add gallery
  • Click Upload
  • Drag your images over, or click Select files
  • On the right hand tool bar, under Gallery Settings select 3 columns and make sure the crop images button is clicked on
  • Link to Attachment Page (so we can see the whole image for review)
  • Click the edit button (looks like a pencil) and drag your images into the order you want them
  • Caption your images (any chance you get to label your work- take it!

Insert Horizontal Line:
