[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a frontier village. It is between Sirnak and Siirt. I went this village for my job last year and than i took this photo.
Also i want to speak about that; in fact this photo's dimension is 528 KB, but TN don't accepted it, because it is very big for TN so i had to made smaller its dimension. Therefore i am very sad. I hope TN change this application....and I hope you admire this smaller photo...!

Hi Botan

I can understand your frustration concerning the dimension of this little "postage stamp" and frankly I doubt that there are many TN members who would appreciate it due to its size. Now, if that may sound very negative, please let me explain and put your mind at ease. This is not the end of all and there is nothing wrong with the TN's standards. The proof is really there for all to see in the many full sized photos on TN that ranges in the region of the maximum permissible size of 800x800 pixels and less than 200kB. Actually I do not understand why you ran into this predicament since most of your earlier postings were really of a very acceptable size.

Anyway, it is all in the software that you use for post processing. I don't know what program you use, but they are mostly working on the same principle as in "this example" I give you to review. If you do not use the same software you should only play around a bit with that what you have and I am sure you should find something very similar to that which I have explained in this example. Before you do any PP optimisation work, I suggest you first resize your photo to the desired dimensions you would like it to be for the posting and then it is merely a case of adapting the kilobyte size when you do the "Save As" portion after you completed the PP work. If you have any further questions regarding this, please feel free to ask and if I can help I will gladly do so. I hope this might be of benefit to you.

Just one other general comment worth mentioning after viewing through your portfolio. I notice you tend to post many TrekEarth type of photos where villages, buildings, or other man made objects features as the primary subjects or the main themes. This is not nature photography and you should perhaps consider to post those kind of photos on TrekEarth rather than on TN. TrekNature are exclusively for serious nature photography as it states on the "Upload" page: "Note: TrekNature is for serious wildlife and natural history type shots, if you're thinking of uploading something that does not fit that description please use one of the other Trek sites. Please understand I am not trying to "knock you", but I am suggesting that you should consider your other options and hopefully you might enjoy an even fuller Trek experience on one of the other sites .

Keep well and TFS.
