Important Tips & Tricks

Time Management

Evaluate all categories and start with those that best meet your interest, skills and availability.

Upload As You Go

You can upload each photo separately and then go back and add new photos or change what you uploaded earlier.

Risky Ending

If everyone waits until 2:55 pm to upload all of their photos expect the upload to be running slower than normal and you may not get all of your photos included!

Hint: If the website goes down during the day, wait 15 minutes and try again.

If you are having problems do not wait until the end of the day to get help!

If you have questions about the event, post them on the club’s Facebook page or contact Sandy at dsschill@aol.com. If you have problems uploading, call the club webmaster, Chane Cullens, at 203-512-8057.
