Submit a Header Photo
Regular readers of this site will notice that we rotate a series of images at the top of the page. We do this because we feel photography is a great way to showcase the diversity and character of this city. And since so many talented amateur and professional photographers are capturing Toronto through their lenses every day, we thought devoting the most prominent area of our site to showcasing their handy-work was a good idea.
Every so often we get an email from someone asking us what our process if for selecting photos for this space. The answer is fairly straightforward. If you have a photo or photos that you'd like to be considered for use as a header photo just follow the following steps:
1. Save/crop the photo to the following size: 960x175 pixels
2. Upload it to FLickr or some other photo sharing site
3. Send us an email to headerphotos [at] blogto [dotcom] with a link to your photo(s) as well as a short 10 word or so description, your name and a link to your web site (if you have one) If we use your photo we'll include all this info under the picture details tab in the lower right hand corner of the header area.
The only catch is that, as you might expect we don't include every photo submission we receive. Our general rule of thumb is that we look for photos that have some relevance to Toronto, are good quality (not blurry, poorly cropped etc.) and are of an image that we don't already have in rotation. We also tend to shy away from generic skyline, CN Tower or TTC shots.
If we post one of your photos, we will send an email letting you know. Thanks in advance for your submissions.
