Photo ArchiveIn the days before social media, when film cameras were more common than digital cams and phone cams, we setup these photo galleries to share memories of the good times.
As FB, Smugmug, Flicker, Imgur and all the others became part of our language, the need for these galleries became less and less urgent.
Then when we switched servers, it was decided that our 400, Megabytes of pix was just too big.
Now, with our own server at oregonmensa.org we have re-posted them. It's an historic look at an earlier time of earlier tech.
If you have attended a Mensa event and want to share your photos with your fellow Ms, this is a good place. We're particularly interested in pix of Ms in witty T-Shirts. (see below) Please contact: Scott Rainey 503-380-8800.
The 2007 American Mensa Annual Gathering was at the convention center in Birmingham Alabama.
Free Advice for Photographers:
Digital pix can be sent via the internet (email, ftp, http) or via US Mail on a CD-ROM. ZIP files do not save transmission time, because JPEG images are already fully compressed. Zip files are however handy for sending a lot of files all at once.
Please convert images from whatever native format your camera uses to JPEG (.jpg) files. You don't need to compress or reduce the images, but cropping for relevant content is OK.
If you shoot AG pix with a film camera, select a photo processor who will make you a CDR digital copy of your processed film for a buck or two extra.
I will mail CDR's back to you.
If you wish to rename your digital image files, do not use blank spaces in the file names. Use hyphens "-" or underlines"_" instead. Please use all lower case letters if you think of it.
Bad file names:

Photo Credits I will assume that you want photo credit unless I hear otherwise. I will assume that you do want your email (but not hotlinked) on the photo credit page unless you say otherwise.
