    SUBMISSIONS CLOSED

    **PLEASE**
    completely read this post and the additional posts regarding FTP before submitting photos.

    Nastyz28.com again invites it's members to submit photos for use in the next Club Calendar. Club calendars are sold to help support and ease the cost of running the web site and message board. Calendars typically go on sale and are delivered before Christmas so they may be given as gifts. Calendars are of the highest quality, full color, Digitally printed on a heavy weight paper.

    • Any registered member of the site may submit a photo of their Camaro.
    • Your Camaro need not be perfect, many members have mentioned they would like to see more "project" cars.
    • Members who's Camaros were features the previous year well be exempt from being features again the next year.
    • Photos submitted must be large enough with enough detail for printing to be considered for a full size (feature) spot in the calendar. The ideal photo will be 3375 pixels by 2588 pixels (8 mega-pixles) and approximately 4.2mb as a Jpeg with Maximum Quality/ Minimum Compression.
    • Please submit your photos even if they are not this size. We realize that some members will not have access to a camera capable of this size an image. We ask that you submit the highest quality and size your capable of obtaining.
    • Photos not suitable for a feature will still appear in the calendar as smaller photos.
    • Members may submit more than one photo, interior, odd angle and engine bay photos are used and preferred as fillers.
    • Only one photo will be used as a submission for a feature voting. If you have a preference for which photo will be used as your feature submission YOU MUST name it "Feature". If you submit more than one exterior photo the designer will choose your submission photo for you. Please be aware the designer is rather eccentric and likes to pick your odd angle or "interesting" photos in order to add variety to the voting.
    • Photo submission ends when this post is no longer available for viewing (typically in 6 weeks from when it was first posted.), the ftp site will be disabled at that time as well. A one week warning is typically posted prior to removal of this thread. All photos considered good enough quality for a feature spot will then be submitted to a poll or voting thread. You must be a GOLD MEMBER of this site to vote on feature photos.
    • Voting runs for approximately two weeks. The close day for voting will be published in that thread. The top 13 photos with the most votes will be placed as Features, with the single most voted photo being placed on the cover. In case of a tie in voting the staff of the site will decide the winner.

    To help you get the best out of your submissions please read this article from www.cobracountry.com on taking the best photo possible.

    Files must be submitted via FTP through www.Lamsland.com web ftp site. The Username is Nastyz28 and the Password is camaro which is case sensitive. Please type both as they appear here. The site may show you an error for the security certificate.

    • YOU MUST COMPLETELY FILL OUT THE FORM TO SEND FILES.
    • You must create a folder with your user name and be sure you are in that folder before you start uploading files.
    • If you do not create a folder with your user name or you upload your files outside that folder we may not be able to match your photos to your name thus restricting your photos only to smaller filler photos.

    Once you've logged into the site you'll need to locate the "Create Folder" button about center of the Actions menu to the left.

    [​IMG]


    Click the link once and a new window will pop up labeled "Create A New Folder" with a field for you to enter the folder name. Enter your NastyZ28 user name and click the "Make Folder" button directly under the field.

    [​IMG]

    You should then be prompted with a screen saying "Folder Created" and a link to return to the file list.

    [​IMG]

    Once you've clicked on the link you'll be returned to where you started. You must enter the folder you created before uploading files. To do so, scroll through the list until you find the folder with your user name that you created. When you click on the name you will be taken inside that folder.

    [​IMG]

    Verify that you are in the correct folder by looking for the directory path at top. The name of the folder you created (your NastyZ28.com user name) should follow the word "Home:"

    You should now be ready to upload your files. Click the "Upload Files(s)" button at the top of the Actions menu.

    [​IMG]

    Fill in the four fields in the "File Upload" window. You can not upload files until this form is complete. We ask for your email so we have a way to contact you should we need more information or if there is something wrong with the files you've sent. Your email will not be sold or placed on any list at any time. Your email address will not be shared with any other members uploading files.

    [​IMG]

    Click the “Choose Files” button and locate the files you wish to upload. In the file selection window, Shift-Click to select a range of files or Control-Click to select individual files. Files must be on a drive accessible by your computer. You can not upload from another web site. Once you’ve selected your files a document icon will appear in the File Upload window with the number of files you’ve selected.

    [​IMG]

    If you place your mouse over the icon a list of the files names will appear. If you are missing a file, or have forgotten a file you can click the “Choose Files” again, but will have to select all the the files again.

    [​IMG]

    When your done selecting your files click the "Begin Upload" button at the bottom of the "File Upload" window.

    [​IMG]

    You will see a new window with an indication of the progress of your upload. The amount of time will depend on your connection and the size of the files you upload.

    [​IMG]

    When your files are done you will be presented with a message saying “XX Files Have Been Successfully Sent" and a link to return to the list of files. Click this link.

    [​IMG]

    Double check that you are in the folder you created and that the files you have chosen to upload are listed there. If your done uploading your files click the "Logout" button on the bottom of the Actions menu. If you need to upload more files click the the "Upload File(s)" button and repeat the process. If you need to upload additional files at a later time you do not need to create a new folder. Scroll through the list until you find the folder with your user name that you created the first time you uploaded files and continue from there.

    If you have any problems or issues please feel free to E-Mail, PM or IM me!

    away from the crazies
    So does that mean if I want to publish the same pic somewhere else or if I want to make t-shirts with the pic I would have to get permission from NastyZ28.com? Or pay a license fee?

    No, you are not giving up your right to use your photo however you see fit. It's a boiler plate thing so that if a photo gets used as a filler in another calendar we don't have to ask explicit permission to do so.

    Uploaded a few pics. One question....I know if your car is a featured month, we'll be contacted. If one of our pics makes it somewhere not as a feature, will we still be contacted? Thanks doing the calender, car picture consideration, and the reply, (in advance).
