For FK and all other contest participants: If you have a digital camera it probably came with some software to manipulate the images (crop, resize, etc). Also, your computer probably came with some pre-installed (if you have a Mac this would be Graphic Converter or I-Photo - I'm not a PC person so I don't know what the equivalent would be on those). You could also use some commercial software like Photoshop. If none of these are available to you, there is also a free program called Gimp. Kevin wrote up an article on how to download and use Gimp.

For the PC that would be MS Paint. Everyone should have the resources to resize images.

Oh. So after I resize the pictures, do I have to upload the images to Brickshelf again or re-submit the entries or anything? Again, pardon my stupidity.

Upload your pictures (with the same names) to brickshelf. You do not need to submit your entry again. The admins check old entries again to see if the errors have been corrected.

Okay, I'm resizing some of the pictures now, but the computer is going slower then turtles climbing up a wall in July with glue on their feet, on top of which I have to go to bed in a few minutes. I'll try to finish it all up tomorrow.
EDIT: Okay, everything should be okay. Something happened to some of the pictures, but I put up all the other pictures.

Crossing my fingers,

A few of the latest entrants to the contest have atleast one image that is too large in their entries. Please remember that your images can not be larger than 800x600 pixels. For example you can not have an image that is 750x645 pixels.

Oversized Images:
Stephan Abbot - Siege of Jerusalem
BreadMan - Cathedral and Crypt
Lomero - Sampan
Sean - Blacksmith, Battle Mage

Broken Links:
Ziggy - Late Knight

2. Too Many images per folder:

Hey, sounds like that's the guy who's been stealling everybody else's images. There's a topic about it in the Administrative forum, his Brickshelf name is Forrest John, so I wouldn't be surprised.

It means that the link to your brickshelf folder with the entry does not point to the folder. We can not find your entry. Please resubmit it.

We have been following that thread and removing his stolen entries. I believe his name on this list was posted before the thread in Administrative was started.

I have submited two entries for CCC4 and neither of them are up yet. One entry is for custom figs called "Th Black Knight" and the other is for the battle scenes and I believe its called "The undead" or something like that. If you guys are just really busy then thats cool.

It is Christmas so we are somewhat backlogged with entry submissions. We will try to get these up asap if they are correct.

Your entry pictures need to show how the rooms are connected. Having pictures of 3 different rooms in one entry is not what we are looking for. Take one photo of all the rooms connected and then 2 other photos showing more detail.
