Check this list before you submit your photos!

1. Display the image at 100% on your computer. If the image is not sharp, don't submit it! Not now. Not ever. Never.
2. Take a look at the histogram for the image. If the image needs fixing, fix it.
3. Ask yourself "Is there anything in this image that doesn't need to be there?" If there is, remove it or crop it out.
4. Do not submit two similar images into one competition because they will detract from each other.
5. If your image shows someone else's art, have a serious think about not submitting it.
6. If your image relies on a fancy Photoshop filter like liquify or swirl or spherize, have a serious think about not submitting it.
7. Every photographer takes bad shots. If you want people to think you are a good photographer, NEVER show your bad shots!
8. If you have a "photo buddy" or "photo adviser", ask them for a critique of your photos.


YOUTUBE

Download YouTube Videos


Copy the URL (web address) of the YouTube video and paste it to this page - http://en.savefrom.net/ - then click the arrow, then select the format you would like the downloaded video to be. The download will start almost immediately. Note that 720p videos will be much larger files than smaller formats.

Alternatively, when you are on the YouTube page where you video is playing, pause the video, then add "ss" to the URL just in front of "youtube" - i.e. if the URL of the YouTube video is "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vGcH0Bk3hg" change it to "https://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=4vGcH0Bk3hg" and hit enter. It will take you to the same website above without the need to copy and paste the URL.

Rip Music from YouTube Videos

Copy the URL (web address) of the YouTube video and paste it to this page - www.onlinevideoconverter.com - then hit the "Start" button and follow the prompts. The conversion will take place very quickly, then you click on "Download"" and the music file will be downloaded to your computer. It is as simple at that, but make sure you hit the right "Download" button on this site!
