Important New Software Update

Hello Everyone -

First, on behalf of the Board, I would like to thank everyone of you for your dedication and support to CanadianHeadstones.com. Without your hard work, CanadianHeadstones.com would not be the top-quality resource it has become.

Now, the GOOD NEWS !!!

After months of testing and re-writing, we have implemented new functions in our software which will archive all photos from this date forward in much higher quality. This innovation will make the headstones photos much easier to read on the screen as well as creating a printer-friendly version of higher resolution.

Therefore, effective immediately, please do not re-size your images smaller than 900 pixels X 900 pixels.

When a volunteer is submitting photos, the user will be able to Click on the Image below the name index to view a larger version of the photo in a separate window. This will make it easier to read the headstone for indexing and transcribing.

As a Coordinator, you will likewise be able to Click on the Image below the name index to view a larger version of the photo in a separate window. This will make it easier to read the headstone for the approval process.

We would ask you to pass this email on to as many active submitters as you can so that they are aware of these changes. In the near future, the Help & FAQ page will be re-written to include this information.

Thanks again for your support,

Jim McKane
President
