The Club

The club is centred in Linton but welcomes members from surrounding villages.
It aims to offer interest, information and the chance to show the work of anyone who joins. Club activities include visits by specialists, shows and talks by members and photographic awaydays.
The Club welcomes members at all levels, including beginners who have no vast experience of taking pictures and look for help in a friendly atmosphere.

Club night is the 1st Monday of the month 7.00pm - 9.00pm, at:-

Linton Village Hall, Coles Lane, Linton, CB21 4JS

Club night information

The Club's projector has a resolution of 1024 pixels horizontally x 768 pixels vertically. When members show images at meetings, to save computer processing time, it is best that images are reduced in size to the same number of pixels or slightly less. Images of many mega-bytes can be slow to appear on the screen.

There is a very simple free programme called Fast Image Resizer available which does the job for you. Windows users can download it from the adionsoft website here:- http://adionsoft.net/fastimageresize/ and there is an Apple Mac version here:- http://adionsoft.net/fastimageresize/mac.php

Fast Image Resizer always preserves the aspect ratio of your pictures, which means they will not be stretched to match the resolution you selected. See the instructional documentation available on the website.

We usually ask for 2 images to be brought on a memory stick and these are copied onto the club laptop into one folder. To allow seamless projection of all the images from one member to another, we ask that you rename them to 'yourname1' and 'yourname2' (eg FredBloggs1 and FredBloggs2).

Thank you.
