I don't know what's going on but for the past few weeks none of my screenshots have been accepted.
I try to send in shots on a regular basis and 99% of them are accepted, but now I haven't seen a single one.
I think my pics are pretty decent and equal in quality to the rest of the gallery....I'm not submitting crap pictures deserving to be rejected.
Thanks to anyone that can help...
800 X 600 and must be jpeg.
Make sure that you are sending the right stuff.
If you are, then I don't know what the issue would be.
You should also set image resolution to 72 ppi. That is the optimum res for viewing on the web.
Coolsan, It has nothing to do with the content of your shots or whether Flyaway approves of them (as long as they are aircraft) but if the software accepts it.
This is a longgggg post but it covers the basics.
Keep the name short, no symbols (*&^%$#@) or spaces in the file name, a JPEG-JPG and it should go through.
I tried sending one of my "rejected" shots again and now it says the media already exists.
I know, I had a C-130 that I uploaded and it told me that. I hunted (scrolled) and finally found it. The search engine for the shots has never worked for me.
I uploaded one the other day, can't remember what. but it was never posted.
Hey Flyaway, check your screen shot temp folder please.
My last two shots made it......I don't know what happened but I'm happy with it.
Thanks for your help Radarman
I think RadarMan could be right, I've emptied the temp folder and cleared the files that the parsed didn't "like". But if media "already exists", does that not mean you are using the same filenames as the failed media ❓
I've made a note of the Search Engine function error, it returns no results and only a blank page with no images - you guys getting the same? I'll get to work on it 😉
I've tried feeding in all the terms that I can think of and it always comes up blank.
I posted a screenshot last night and it isn't up.
Is the name to long?
I'll look into the search. Well, I've now just realised that i've deleted all pending media that had passed the script If you could re-submit and I'll let you know if I get it.
Has just been posted again. Thanks.
No, I'm afraid I have not got it. Perhaps try without the CAPS?
I might have a look to see if I can hard-code the script to accept any filename while I'm looking at the search... 🙄
I shortened it to:
Is the name to long?
I've got it now. I think it was the capital K at the start. Very temperamental:
Thanks, we can add that to the "do not do list".
Rgr that - I'll append now...
That's the strange thing with my pic, I changed the name as the previous didn't work. I'll try again now that you deleted the temp folder
