How to send a Trip Report
Trip Reports are great. I'll be glad to post yours. If you already
have it posted, I'll be glad to link to it.
To send text
The best way to send the text of your trip report is as a simple
e-mail text file or a Word Document. Indicate positions or insertion
points for photos when possible, Though I may need to move them
a bit to fit the format I use..
To send images
Photos or graphics are best in .bmp, .jpg, or .art format. Please
try to send 640 x 480 pixel or larger photos. Send in highest resolution.
Be sure to indicate captions for photos - i.e.. Photo by Joe Climber
- Cindy climbhard on Broken Glass 5.10 in the Buttermilks. Please
credit the photographer when possible.
I will at most post three sizes of your photos. One will be a thumbnail
version, 150 pixels on longest axis. The second will be a mid sized
version 150 - 200 pixels on long axis with a caption. Please include
the caption you'd like as well as the source of the photograph.
The third size will be 640 x 480 pixels or as close to that as able.
How it works
You send me your trip report. I cut and paste it into the format
of my web pages (my fonts, sizes, headings, styles). I edit your
photos and add captions as indicated. When ready for your review,
I send you the URL. You proof read the page, changes are then made
as indicated. Once you approve, the page is listed on the Southeastclimbing.com
web site. The process usually takes a day or two to go back and
forth, get confirmations, make corrections, etc.
Include useful things other climbers would want to know about your
trip. General things like weather, details of rack, guidebook, etc.
make your report interesting to other climbers.
Don't imbed your photos in a word document or other presentation.
I'm not always able to extract them easily.
Try to provide pictures which illustrate or are relevant to the
