PDI Image Upload Instructions

From the 2020/21 season WPS started to use an external service, PhotoEntry, for PDI competition uploads.

We hope it will make the upload process easier for members and for our projectionist.

Its benefits include image dimension checking and simpler image naming.

It also works with our projection software, Film Free Projection.

Several other clubs in the SCPF are already using PhotoEntry.

From the 2021-22 season, we are asking members to upload digital copies of their Print Competition entries before judging night.

Simple Steps for a PDI Upload

You should have received an email from PhotoEntry with a temporary password.

Then you should have visited the PhotoEntry site to set a permanent password.

To submit an image:

  1. Login at https://compent.photoentry.uk/compent/
  2. Select the season (2020/21 this season)
  3. Choose the competition (for example, PDI Round 1)
  4. Click on Add New Entry
  5. Enter the title you want to use for your entry
  6. Click Add this Entry
  7. Select a JPG image from your device (with colour profile sRGB). It should be max 1920 wide, 1200 high. The system will resize it if necessary, but you’ll get more predictable quality if you get the size right yourself.
  8. Press Upload Image.

That’s it. It doesn’t matter what the filename is, because you specify the title before you upload.

You can go back and change the title and/or replace the image before the closing date.

We don’t recommend this approach, but if you took the image on a smartphone and are happy to submit it without any post-processing, you can upload it from your phone and let the software take care of resizing it.

The best way to view these instructions is probably to view fullscreen.
