Annual Photo Share with Triad Chapter Members

Send in your favorite native plant photos to share at a Zoom meeting Dec. 1 at 7:00 p.m. Members can send up to 10 photos that highlight native plants TAKEN IN THE LAST CALENDAR YEAR. Please, send by Friday, Nov. 25 to Triadco@ncwildflower.org.
Even if you don’t submit any photos of your own, you will enjoy seeing this year’s collection. And if you do not have any photos to share, but would like to share a native plant story, we look forward to hearing from you (and seeing you) via Zoom.
Past Shows
View past Triad slideshows at this link. In the past, we saved the slideshow and shared on our member drive. Since this will be via Zoom, we may post on YouTube, so having the photos in one slide set may help the program go more smoothly, but we may also be able to share screens if you can’t make the Nov. 25 deadline. (Nancy found 2020 and it’s now posted at the link above along with those back to 2013–thanks so much everyone who has shared in the past!!!)
Photo Guidelines/Tips
  • Native plant photo taken in 2021.
  • If you want to reduce the size before emailing, 1920 pixel width for landscape oriented photos is about the maximum size needed for online viewing and as little as 800 pixels may be adequate. For vertical shots, you can estimate how wide compared to your typical horizontal image and reduce pixels accordingly. It’s fine to send full size to Nancy if you’re not sure how to reduce.
  • You can send individual photos with all the caption information or a PowerPoint or Keynote set already formatted as you’d like them (if you do not include your name on all the photos, Nancy will likely make an intro slide with your name). If you make your own set, people really appreciate having both the scientific name and at least one common name on the slide (especially those who view later).
  • Example caption. I tend to list the scientific name first and separate by commas, but here’s an example caption sent that I love because it includes the location and date. I generally keep the format folks send me. Notice it’s numbered, which helps because the photos attached don’t always stay in order.
    • 1. Pinxter Flower (Rhododendron periclymenoides) in bud on Laurel Bluff Trail, April 14, 2021
  • If making your own PowerPoint or Keynote set, it’s best to reduce photo size before inserting. In PowerPoint, you can reduce photo size after inserting by right-clicking on the photo, then choosing to reduce (you’ll get an option to reduce just that one photo or all photos in your PP).

NOTE re Zoom Link: If you are a Triad Chapter member or on the Triad Chapter informal listserv, you will receive the Zoom link via email.  Otherwise, kindly register here by November 30th to receive the Zoom info. If you need to register after November 30th, please contact triadco@ncwildflower.org.

Keep in touch! All NCNPS members receive emails via their chapter affiliation, but the Triad Chapter also has a groups.io listserv that we use for sharing events, extra plants, and other native plant news. If you would like to be part of this informal listserv, please contact Triadco@ncwildflower.org.
