Ok so I thought I might share this with everyone on the site. I find that when I submit to challenges I usually don't bother to see how my image will look when it's viewed by voters, ie checking out the demo page after I submit the shot. I started to realize that it really helps to see how the shot will look to BEFORE I submit it. So instead of uploading to the dpc site 10 times to see how it will look on the voting page I decided to host the page locally.

I've now made this available on my site as a zip file that you can download locally on your computer and easily insert your own shot to see how it will look. Just place your picture within the DPChallenge - Test Page_files folder with the name final.jpg ... then open up the DPChallenge - Test Page.htm file and PRESTO you get a preview of your shot before you upload it.

For a copy of this test page check out my site www.chadbrown.ca under downloads. If you want to have a look at what the test page looks like click on the preview button (note this only works for IE not firefox).

Hope people find this helpfull,
Chad

Working on my end.

Btw, I like the sample comment "This is the best shot I've ever seen!". Made me laugh.

It works now thanks and looks great. One thing though I hope I don't sound rude but would it be possible to have the comment box on the page like a voter would normally see. BTW I tried in firefox and it worked fine. Thanks again.
04/28/2006 12:06:47 PM · #17
Sure thing ... I'll update that later this weekend.
