Updating Photos Still In The Queue

Tue Aug 20, 2002 1:20 am

Hi,

Upon looking at a submission from yesterday, i realized that there was some room for easy improvement... can I update the photo before it is screened, or do i have to wait for an upload and fix or a rejection?

thanks,

Jeremy

Just upload the picture with the same filename as the one in the queu.

The old one is automatically replaced by the new one than...

Jeremy,

No, you can't update the picture whilst its in the queue.

You have two choices:
- the easiest for all of us is for you to wait for the original picture to be either accepted or rejected, and if its accepted upload the improved version (there's a process for this). Note that the queue is much shorter now so you shouldn't have to wait too long

or...

- if you absolutely must update it now whilst its in the queue, I would recommend the following (this is a personal view and not particularly agreed practice)

1. Upload the revised picture, but use a different file name to your original upload
2. e-mail the screeners (screeners@airliners.net) saying that you don't want a specific picture to be considered anymore - provide as much detail as possible including the type, registration, and the file name for the picture you want to be removed
3. All being well, we'll try to do the rest which will result in your original upload being rejected (probably badpersonal with a message saying not processed as per your request)

Hope this helps,

Andy

When I scanned the picture, I had been looking at it all day (it was from my trip this summer and I was showing people pictures at a party). Since the picture is a contrail in the middle of a Grand Canyon sunrise, I became fixated on the "sunrise" colors and never thought too much of the blue sky that was above... when I looked at it again, I realized that I should have taken more time to look over the picture (definitely a mistake I need to work on)

Aha, so what I said was wrong?

They always said it like that to me...

I already did it several times!
