To resize your photo
Providing the photo
meets the size limits it will be uploaded to your advert.
If you have any problems resizing or uploading your photograph or Youtube video, we can do this for you free of charge.
For free ads, we will crop, resize & upload a single image.
For paid ads
we also offer to make a single compilation image from two photos providing
it is the same animal or item.
If posting, please
include your advert number & a SAE if you would like your prints
If you would like to show more photos with your ad, you can either create a montage from several photos, use the website field to link to an existing gallery such as a Photobucket or Facebook album, or for only £5.00 you can have a Photo Gallery added to the text section of your advert or listing.
Further instructions on using online albums including link shortening can be found on the support forum.
To order a Photo Gallery Click Here
Once the order is received, we will set up the gallery for you & add it to your Classified advert or Directory listing. You can then either manage your own images using the file manager linked from the bottom of the gallery or simply Email the images to us & we will resize & upload the photos to the gallery for you.
The total maximum
of of all images is 2.5Mb.
You will be notified by Email when the gallery has been created . You can then log into the file manager via the classifieds control panel or the link under the gallery to upload or delete images as required.
Videos cannot be uploaded directly, but you can link to or embed a video hosted on YouTube. This is an ideal way to show your horse or pony in action or if you have a Directory listing, show potential clients what you can offer.
Note: Videos must be directly relevant to your advert & not advertising a service, company or be in competition with the NFED or its sponsors unless the company or individual has a current listing in the Directory. Unsuitable videos will be removed without notice. No more than two videos must be imbedded in a single advert.
We are happy to add up to two videos to your advert for you, simply Email the Youtube video link/s to the administrator along with the advert number.
To add your own video:
Method 1: Linking to a Video
To add a link to the video, simply copy the video url into the website field of the submission form. Using this method, the video will not show in your advert, a link will be provided and the video will open in a new window.
The url will look something like: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=OeLnwvijTM4
Method 2: Embed a Youtube Video
To embed the video i.e. show the video in your advert or listing.
1/ Go to the Youtube
website, find the video & click on the Share button
3/ Paste the code into the main text* of your advert or listing where you would like the video to go.
*DO NOT put the Iframe code in the Website field of the submission form. This will stop the advert working properly
If done correctly, the video will appear in the body of your advert or listing like this.
Google Maps. Enter your postcode in Google Maps, then click the link option. Copy the "Paste HTML to embed in website" & paste it into your advert. If done correctly, it should look like this.
The following are some very basic tips which hopefully will help you to take better photos & get more enjoyment from your equine photography.
The majority of modern cameras will take care of the technical side of things, so you really only have to think of the composition.
Choose a bright, but not necessarily sunny day. On bright days there will be dark shadows & bright highlights that will give a very contrasty picture, particularly with a dark coloured animal.
For a more professional look take time to prepare your horse.
Choose the horse’s best side and make sure you have a suitable, not too distracting background. Have a good look all around the viewfinder & fill it. So many picture cut off the horse while wasting space on the other side of the picture.
Make sure the person holding the horse knows what they are doing & what you are trying to achieve, they can then position the horse accordingly.
Ensure that for a full length shot, you stand the horse with both front legs together and hind leg nearest to you slightly behind the other. For best effect take the photograph in landscape mode.
For a head shot or picture taken from the front, use portrait mode. Avoid getting too close & wide angle lenses which will distort the features. Standing farther away & using a telephoto or zoom lens will give a far more pleasing effect. The narrower depth of field will also have the effect of blurring the background, making your subject stand out from the picture.
As with children or small animals, when photographing foals or smaller breeds, get down to their eye level. You will get a far better photo if you are not looking down on the subject.
It is very difficult to get a horses attention while trying to hold a camera steady. When you look into the camera, you lose eye contact with the horse & the ears immediately go back. I see this over & over again in the line up, the horses look very happy & interested in what you are doing, as soon as the camera covers my face, the ears go back. The easiest way is to get somebody to stand by your shoulder to get the horses attention in which ever way they can while you wait for the perfect shot.
For action or jumping shots, the more light the better. On dark days or indoors it is very difficult if not impossible to freeze the action successfully. Use fast shutter speeds or sports mode if your camera has one. Follow the horse with you camera & squeeze the shutter button whilst still following the horse along. Don’t just hold the camera still & try to grab the shot as the horse passes.
If your camera has a time delay between pressing the button & taking the shot, practice! With a little patience, it is possible to know when to press the button & get the shot.
