How do I prepare an image?

To get a physical item up into the archive you will first need to take a picture of it or scan it.

Once you have the picture or scan, use an image editing application like Paint (on a PC) or iPhoto / Preview (on a Mac) to resize the image down to around 1000 pixels in width or height. Then simply save the image as a good quality JPEG onto your desktop and you’re ready to upload.

If you have several images of one item (like a collection of photos from the same gig) then make sure you have them all ready to upload at the same time.
