Are you frustrated with how your photos look on Facebook? Make them shine with this simple sizing setup: 2048 pixels (long edge), 72 ppi, sRGB color space. That way, FB won't have to convert anything again and your photos will look their best.

The club also has an affiliation with Boise Photo Walk, an online group that meets often for live photo opportunities in the Treasure Valley area and beyond. It's a great way to practice what you're learning through the club while meeting other local photographers. Join here: http://www.meetup.com/Boise-Photo-Walk/

To further protect the privacy of the membership list and members personal information; the club President has proposed adding the following to the bylaws under "Membership"
"The Camera Club of Eagle Membership Roster shall not be used for purposes of solicitation by any person/s, private for profit or not-for-profit business/es but only for non-business personal contact between those listed Members."

Club President, Bill Towler, proposed that the club bylaws be amended to change the webmaster position from an appointed one, to one that is voted on by the club membership. The reasons for this proposed amendment are as follows: The webmaster position workload has expanded and includes, updating the website on a timely basis (several times a month), seeking out new tutorials that may be of interest to members, contacting people about writing tutorials and posting new ones at least once a month, putting out the club newsletter twice a month as well as any other emails to members as necessary, answering emails sent to the clubs address and updating the club email list; maintaining and posting the clubs members list; promoting club presenters on Facebook, on the club website and in the club newsletter.
