Photo Upload Basics

 
  • Is there a limit on the number of photos I can upload?
Yes, for a free member you can only upload 1 photo for your profile page (you can edit this photo at any time). However, if you upgrade to a FacesofLyme Plus Membership for $19.95 a year (this helps us keep the site running), you can upload 50 Photos and along with this have the ability to send E-Cards personalized with your photo for every occassion.
The cool thing about this is that your friends and all users on FacesofLyme can see your pet in all their glory (you can write captions too!). We think having more photos, helps you get more votes to win the FacesofLyme Photo Contest. You can also take a free trial of FacesofLyme E-Cards by clicking here.
 
  • What types of images can I upload?
FacesofLyme can understand only one digital photo "language": the JPEG format (often shortened to "jpg"). If your photos are stored in a different format (such as GIF, BMP, or TIFF), you will need to "translate" them into the JPEG format. Use the photo editing software that came with your camera or scanner to save your photo in the JPEG format.
 
  • Are there limits on file sizes for uploads?
Yes, you can upload files up to 1MB in size. As you upload photos, they're compressed and resized by FacesofLyme (if necessary) in the following sizes:
  • 200 pixels (on the widest side) - this is for your user profile pages.
  • 60 x 60 pixels - this is for the thumbnail photo of your pet that is seen throughout the site.
 
To find out how to reduce the size of your photo, visit FacesofLyme Photo Guide by clicking here.
 
  • I'm not crazy about my photo. Can I change it?
Yes, you can change your photos at any time. Once you've uploaded a photo, simply go to your Private Profile Pages, by clicking on "About Me" (you must be logged in to do this). Then click on the tab, "My Media" and you will be taken to your photo page. Above each of your photos, click on "Change Photo" and follow the directions online.
 
  • How do I share my photos?
Anyone who visits FacesofLyme can see your photos by visting your public profile pages (viewed by clicking on "View Members" and then searching for your name). You also have some other cool ways to share your photos and promote your pet to win the FacesofLyme Photo Contest:
On your private profile pages (Click "About Me" when logged in), you will see a link that says, "Promote Your Pet". On these pages you can do the following:
  • Tell Your Friends to vote for your Pet by either sending them your pet's public profile url address (shown on this page) or you can ask us to send out a Voting E-Card. This Voting E-Card tells your friends everything they need to know to view your photos and to vote for your pet to win the FacesofLyme Photo Contest.
  • If you use MySpace, you can quickly send a bulletin to all your friends to ask them to vote for your pet to win the FacesofLyme Photo Contest and win a trip to one of our host cities and a Pet Protrait.
  • Instant Message your friends and send them your pet's public profile page url.
  • We think this is particularly cool. We provide 3 different types of FacesofLyme Voting Links. One even has your photo on it. It's simple to use, just copy the link to your web page, blog, newsletter, email footer or anywhere online that you can post content! All your friends have to do is click on the link, vote and you are that much closer to winning a Pet Portrait and a weekend in one of our host cities.
