Hi. I have at least 4 posters that are not on this site that I would like to add if possible. I could take pictures of them and upload them but I don't have the ability (or possibly have the ability and just don't know how to do it) to rotate and crop the images before I upload them. Should I still upload the images?

in general, we like to have new additions "pre-cropped" but if it's just not practical, the volunteer staff can download them from each submission, and crop them during the approval process.

Since Jojo can help you this time, you're all set, but in the future, it's cool if you add a few that need image-editing. If you have a large number of things to add, it would be best to do 'em right the first time, but I don't find it too annoying to clean up the occasional addition.

Thanks for the advice. Jojo, I'll send you a PM once I get the pictures taken (will probably be this weekend).
