  1. I seem to have missed the deadline having submitted at 5pm Central Time in the U.S. (11pm in the U.K.). next time, I suppose.

  2. Hi Karl,
    This is unrelated to this topic but didn´t quiet know where to post it, so please excuse me for dropping you a line where I shouldn´t. Looking to buy a sturdy studio tripod that won´t brake the bank. Don´t have room for a studio column. Any advise will be appreciated.

    As much as I hate to admit it, submitting an image for this critique required a refresh on understanding file resizing. Also, I was a bit confused by the stated “3000 pixel size on the long edge and 5MB” image submission requirement and then when I got to the point of uploading the file, I saw in the drop box area, the max image size was something like….180 MB?? No worries, I probably missed something in Karl’s image resizing vid that I reviewed over a year ago. Maybe he’ll quickly address this during the actual critique.

    1. Hi, I don’t think our system will accept 180mb so that might be a type on our part. If the image is 3000 pixels on the longest edge and saved as Jpeg it should only be around 2 to 5mb.
