I assume they have to be from 2008 and they have to be taken in the Sierra?

Shouldn't the submissions be by PM/E-mail? I don't think it's fair to see them until we vote.

I've been trying to post a test photo, without success. First I tried uploading from my hard drive, but it wasn't accepted. Next, I tried to upload from Shutterfly, using the posted directions. Alas, when I right click on the photo to be test-sent, I do not get "properties" or anything else that gives me a URL. Sheesh! There must be a way to make this work. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Post the URL one of your photos is located at, and also the file size of your photo(s) and we'll go from there. :)

Right click on the photo in Shutterfly
Scroll down to the bottom of the menu and click on properties
You should then see a URL that you can copy. It's pretty long, so make sure you get all of it.

Eric, this forum has a system where the photo is uploaded directly to the site. The URL would then be a HST URL and it is inserted into the post. Maybe too much bandwith?

We have that feature too. Some people have even used it to post their photos to the photo contest entry thread. :)
