The 2015 NLGA Calendar Photo Collection Begins!
Here’s a Guide to get GREAT Shots of your Grey:
All our Hound(s) pictures are precious. Let’s face it, these ladies and gents are just darn cute! We’d like you to consider sharing your favorite shots so as many as possible can be included in the upcoming 2015 NLGA calendar.
But we need your help to make 2015 another success. And we especially need pics that can be used for the cover and top of each month.
In past years we’ve received some fabulous shots, only to discover they were very small pictures when we opened the files. Nothing can be done to make a small digital image larger. For those new to digital imaging, a picture is made up of blocks of information called “Pixels”. There is a finite amount of these blocks in any digital image. The fewer blocks, the less information a computer reads. A large picture can be made smaller, but not the reverse. That’s why you sometimes see an image turn into a bunch of “squares”. A guide for a full page image – each month’s top page – is 3600 pixels wide by 2700 pixels high.
Ideally, a digital camera, with the highest resolution setting selected, is best. The pics can be blown-up or sized down. However, many people don’t have regular digital cameras, relying on their phones. Let’s face it, they’re always with you and available for that cute, unexpected shot. We suggest setting the phone’s camera to its highest settings, if possible, and send directly to us. Don’t edit the photos in any way. If you have any questions, send a “test” pic to us, and we can look at it, and get back to you. This doesn’t guarantee every picture will make top page consideration, but we’ll have more leverage to work with other page layouts.
Most importantly, we need all of you to consider showing off those fabulous hounds!
We hope this information gives you some understanding what’s required for this year’s calendar. You will again be voting for the large monthly photos at the NLGA Annual Picnic, September 13. Please consider this advice so we have many great choices for the vote—and to include in the rest of the calendar.
Mission Statement We're a nonprofit group of volunteers dedicated to finding responsible homes for retired racing greyhounds and educating the public about greyhounds as pets.
We have been placing these faithful, loving and wonderful companions for over 17 years. In that time we have found homes for over 1,300 dogs. Our experienced adoption coordinators will work closely with you to find the perfect pet. We'll help you find out if a greyhound is the right breed for you, your family and your lifestyle.
