Using My Image Library


All users of the SMCC website have access to a private image library.  This library is created along with the account.  The library is used to store images that the member has in competition or a gallery.  The maximum size for an image in the library is 3840 x 2160 Pixels and no larger than 10 MB.  The system also detects duplicate images and will not upload the duplicates into the library.  Any image that is in the Image Library longer than three months and that image is in a competition or gallery shall be automatically deleted.
