Submission Guidelines

Please use this guide to assist you in submitting your photos to the Rooks County Photo Album. We are sorry, but because of space limitations, we cannot accept photos that do not reference Rooks County families.

-- Refer to your scanner's instruction manual for help on using your scanner. While we are willing to help as much as possible, we simply do not know enough about all of the possible scanners out there to provide technical support.

-- Please try to scan the photo as straight as possible up to 1200 dpi.   If it is a black & white, sepia, tintype, etc., use grayscale to scan it.   If it is an old hand-colored photo, please feel free to scan it in color if you like.

-- Save your photograph as a jpg file and resize the picture by pixel, not to exceed 1000 kb. This will retain the best resolution and provide quicker downloads. Jpg is a file extension for graphics that you can choose from the " Save as type" drop down box in your file system.

-- Always send your photo to us with the highest resolution possible, up to 1200 dpi. We will probably reduce the size of your photo once we receive it, but it's impossible to improve clarity from a small, low-resolution image. Your best bet is to send the file as it is originally scanned from your scanner's software.

-- Once your image file meets the above criteria, there is one other step before e-mailing it to me as an attachment.

Always let me know via this link that you will be sending an attachment to your next e-mail. In order to protect my system from viruses, I WILL not open UNEXPECTED attached files. They WILL be deleted.

Attach each photo to a separate e-mail and include the following information in the message area of the e-mail:

-- Full name of the attached photo.
-- Full description of the photo, including date and location of the photo, if known if date isn't known, guesstimate the time frame.
-- Names of all persons in the photo, if known.
-- Additional information you want to appear on the page with the photo.

Email all the above information or any further questions to me at:

If you have mystery photos, as space is available, I will have a section for " Can You Identify Me."

Thank you for taking the trouble to share your historic photos with other researchers!
