Dear Sister / Brother:
SRCM PHOTO ARCHIVES – Eternal Moments
Report by brother Santosh Sreenivasan, Bangalore, India
The Mission's Digital Archives department has embarked on a project to consolidate in one place, all photos/pictures that abhyasi brothers and sisters across the world may be having, for future preservation. These photos could be pictures of Rev. Master or interesting pictures taken by you during SRCM seminars or travels with Rev. Master. You may also submit pictures of Mission's ashrams or activities that highlight Mission's participation.
Registered users will be able to browse the photographs which have been approved for viewing by the Publications Department, as well as the photographs which they have uploaded.
Abhyasis are requested not to use any external sites or tools to share photographs of Rev. Master or SRCM ashrams/events. For any clarifications regarding this tool or process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
Tutorial Help on how to use this tool is available here http://srcm.info/gallery2/tutorial.html .
Here are some suggested guidelines to follow before you upload your photos to this site:
You can submit only those pictures that were taken by you.
- Pictures have to be in high resolution digital format (JPG/PNG). As these pictures could be used for publishing, we can only accept pictures having a resolution of about 3 Megapixel (2048 x 1536 Pixels) or above.
- We also accept 'Raw' format which is typically available on professional/semi-professional digital cameras.
- Please provide as much description of the photo as possible. For example, the date and place where it was taken, any particular information that could make the picture unique, any anecdote related to the picture etc. All this information will enable us to publish the picture on this website as well as in any of Mission's publications.
- Please note that all pictures uploaded by you are not automatically shared with general public. However, we will attempt to share the interesting pictures after due review and approval process. Pictures which have additional information are more likely to be selected for sharing.
- If you have hard copies of photographs that you feel should be preserved for future, please scan them in high resolution (300 dpi) and upload the scanned digital image.
- Do remember that by registering to this site and uploading photos, you transfer copyright of the pictures as described in the Terms of Service. http://srcm.info/gallery2/terms.html
COPYRIGHT POLICY: Any photograph, audio or video recording made at SRCM venue is the copyright of Shri Ram Chandra Mission. The material may only be used for personal use and may not be reproduced or transmitted to third parties without the express written approval of the Mission and all recordings will be surrendered to the Mission at its request.
