I don't understand that Alan. As far as I know the NCPF changed their rules to be in line with all the other organisations at least a year ago.

Just read those rules; is there no provision for colour slides now?

I'd have thought a good 35mm slide would look far better projected than any smallish digital image.

I think Alan has picked up on the 2012 rules so would you be talking images set up in 2011.

I would assume they would use the same format for all 2013 competitions so. link

"Guidelines for the preparation of digital images for the NCPF Annual Club P.D.I. Championship
Digital Image Preparation
Digital images MUST be prepared in RGB Colour or Grayscale Mode and saved in JPEG format with appropriate quality compression to ensure that the file size does not exceed 800Kb.
The maximum horizontal size of any image is 1400 pixels and the maximum vertical size of any image is 1050 pixels.
The images should be prepared with sRGB colour space to maximise colour representation by the projection equipment."

Thanks Barrie, I think that brings us back neatly to explaining the benefits of making sure everything is sRGB, camera and Photoshop/Lightroom.
Best regards, John

Thanks Barrie . I navigated via Annual Competitions, where it does make reference to the 2012 competition. Seems a bit silly keeping the rules on there if they have been superseded.

As to our local interclub competions, it would be interesting to know if Stan's club (Ashington) state the same requirements as my club at Blyth as per my first post quoting our rule book

Our camera club Holmfirth have always used sRGB as do the YPU. It is in the YPU rule book and also the PAGB use sRGB

I think what we are talking about is the colour space you use when exporting or saving for display, not the settings used for editing.

Actually all spaces should be the same. Yes, the gamut of sRGB is more limited, but it's as much as a monitor or projector can display and as much as most printers can represenr.

I'm not sure if this is relevant to the topic or not, but I recently had an issue with images I was uploading to the Gallery. A kind member pointed out that one of my images had strange colour saturation and that the grass in particular was an odd shade of green. On my monitor it looked normal, but on his colour managed monitor it was wrong. It turned out that Adobe Camera RAW was set to 'Adobe RGB' instead of 'SRGB'. I have now made sure all of the settings are 'SRGB' and the result is that images uploaded to the Gallery are now retaining their proper consistency, vitality and colour, whereas previously there seemed to be something lacking on the Gallery images when compared to my originals.

That is pretty much what I'd expect David, so glad it's helped.
Best regards, John
