Drag to set position!

Lynda Giddens ADMIN July 1, 2011
This week's theme is: Depth of Field!
Feel free to submit up to five photos tagged: dwcff-dof.

Group Description

Each week I pick a photography related theme, then look for photographs and articles to help me capture and edit those types of shots.

On Friday, I post on my blog my favorite photographs from the week along with links to articles around the web I found to be especially useful or interesting.

I also create a Flickr Gallery from my favorite group pool submissions.

Anyone is welcome to join the group and add to the pool! However, as I will be displaying selected submissions on my website, there are a few strict rules you need to adhere to if you want to qualify for your photograph to be chosen.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Qualifications

1. The photograph must be public. Toward the bottom right side of the photo's Flickr page, there are Owner Settings. If your photograph is public, an icon will show in green indicating anyone may see it. If it's not green, click the edit link to the right and make the photograph public.

2. The photograph must be under any Attribution Creative Commons license. This just gives me permission to display the photo on my site while crediting you. Under Owner Settings on your submission's Flickr page you will see how your photograph is licensed. If it needs to be changed, click the edit link to the right and select the appropriate license. If you need help picking a license, try the License Generator. If you want to retain full commercial control over your photograph, you're going to want to select Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs.

3. Your work must be eligible for galleries. I create a gallery on Flickr for every Friday Finds, therefore if your settings don't allow others to add your work to galleries, I cannot feature your photograph. To verify this is set up, go to your privacy and permissions settings. About a third of the way down, make sure "Allow your stuff to be added to a gallery" is set to Yes.

4. I must be able to "Share" your photograph. This makes it easy for me so I don't have to upload your photograph to my server. To verify this is set up, go to your privacy and permissions settings. The second question is, "Who can share your photos or video?" and make sure "Any Flickr Member" is chosen. Alternatively, you can set it to Contacts only and add me as a contact.

Thank you for joining Friday Finds!

I also create a Flickr Gallery from my favorite group pool submissions. Flickr purposely limits galleries to 18 photographs each and there are usually 150 or more submissions so I need to be selective.
