How to contribute a photo to the site.
All photographs on the site are in JPG file image format and need to be contributed in that form where possible. Images may be emailed to one or both of the two web masters or mailed in disk or CD format. Contact the web master for postal address instructions on where to contribute through the mail service.
All photos contributed to the site must be your property, they can not be another persons photo, even if you have permission to use it. We will add ownership information to each photo. This information includes your rank if in the military, first and last name, the unit assigned and date of the photo, best guess on date take is acceptable. We also encourage you to give us a short description of the events leading to the reason for the photo or a caption. This may be edited or shortened to fit the space available.
What if I want to contribute photos but I do not have them in computer image format, or they are not saved as a jpg file. In this case contact Dennis Patterson at email@example.com and he will tell you how to get them in the proper format. This is often a very easy process.
