So, you want to see your project splashed across the IGM Gallery? Here's what you need to do!
PLEASE NOTE: Current students can submit their OWN projects to the gallery by logging into the website and then choosing 'Create Content->Student Project' from the menu on the right.
(Also, you might get a couple of errors during the submission of parts of the form, but it does work, so ignore those and submit it anyway. We're working on it!) If you don't want to submit it yourself, or for some reason want us to do it for you (i.e. you have non-standard issue or you want to do something crazy) then just follow along...
First, make a "submission pack" containing the following:
1. A thumbnail for the submission, at 162x115 pixels.
2. A large thumbnail for the submission, at 512x512 pixels.
3. A banner for the submission, at 630x64 pixels (optional).
4. A paragraph description of the work.
5. A list of the author(s) of the work:
6. A list of the class(es) the work was created for, or title(s) of the associated research project(s).
7. A list of any tags you want associated with the work (optional).
8. A list of any links you want associated with the work (optional).
9. A list of YouTube links to video(s) of the work (optional). -- what this means is to go to YouTube and have it generate the embed tag and then copy that text into the submission.
10. The distributable Flash SWF of the work (if applicable).
11. A set of images of essentially any size you want to be in the gallery associated with the work (optional).
12. Any additional files you want associated with the project (we currently support: doc docx pdf psd mov zip wav mp3 txt rtf png bmp gif tif swf dcr ccgame) (optional).
Take all of this, zip or rar it, and send it to andy -at- mail.rit.edu (remember to change the .zip extension if to something else so the RIT mail filters don't delete it -- .notazip or .zap works well) with a sensible email subject. Then an entry will be created and up it goes. To be helpful, prefix all of your files with the same prefix on a per-project basis, for tracking purposes. (i.e. mySubmission_thumb_small.jpg, mySubmission_thumb_large.jpg, mySubmission_pic01.jpg, etc.)
That's really about it, and we hope to see lots more of the wonderful work of IGM students here for the rest of us (and the world) to see!
