How Do I...

Send a Digital Photo?
  1. Reduce the photograph to no larger than 500k as a .jpg, .tif or .bmp. The picture can be in color or black & white (they will print black & white in the newspaper). If in doubt, do not reduce the size of the photo and send it just like it came out of the camera. DO NOT take photos with cell phone cameras. The resolution on most of them is not good enough for printing.
  2. Email photos to citizen@snet.net or rivereast@snet.net depending on which paper you would like it to appear in. Include all pertinent photo information (i.e. date, location, people in the photograph or a detailed caption if possible). Please include a contact telephone number in case of a problem.
  3. At this time, we are unable to open any photographs that are proprietary to your digital camera or come from a CD that you receive from your film developer. The most common file formats for photographs that we can accept are .jpg, .tif, and .bmp. Please call if your photo is in some other format.
  4. Please do not embed your photos in another program like Microsoft Word or Powerpoint. The photo should be sent to us in its original format to ensure the photo is printed in the paper at its best quality. Embedding the photo in another application will reduce the resolution of the photograph and cause the photo to print poorly in the paper.
  5. Photos that are sent with writing or text on them will print out poorly in the paper, and it is at the discretion of the editor whether they will run or not. While we realize that many people now have photo-editing capabilities, we ask that you send your photographs in their original form to ensure that they are capable of running in the paper.
Submit a Letter to the Editor?
  1. Email a .txt or .doc file as an attachment to an email to citizen@snet.net for publication in the Glastonbury Citizen. Email rivereast@snet.net for publication in the Rivereast News Bulletin. Please be advised we only print letters that are from local citizens.
