Flickr Photo Magazine Tips and First Week Faves

Hey MagClouders, we are so glad you are enjoying the new “Upload to Flickr” feature. To help you get a little more out of this new feature we thought we would share a few of our favorite “Flickr Hacks” with you:

Bigger Images on Each Page: If you want to make sure your photo takes up as much of the page as possible be sure to size it at 1875 by 2625 pixels at a minimum of 300 dots per inch resolution. This will allow your photo to fill up most of the page.

Multiple Image on a Page: Create a single image file (jpg, gif, png or tiff) that contains multiple photos and upload it as part of your Flickr set. Make sure the single image file is 1875 by 2625 pixels at a minimum of 300 dots per inch resolution. When your MagCloud magazine is created, this file will be placed on a single page just like your other photos, creating the impression of multiple images on a single page.

If you have other questions on how to use the “Upload to Flickr” feature check out our FAQ.

We’ve been very impressed with some of the magazines we’ve seen created from Flickr sets in just the first week. Below are just a few of our personal favorites. We can’t wait to see what else you do with this cool new feature

Potential UK Shipment Delay

Some MagCloud customers in the UK may experience a delay in receiving their magazine orders as a result of European air travel disruption due to the Iceland volcano eruption. Our shipping provider who services our UK customers is doing their best to deliver orders in the fastest time possible under these extreme conditions.

If you have any questions please contact us.

Thank you for your understanding.

Publishers In Their Own Words: XTERRA Planet

The XTERRA Planet
by Trey Garman, Magazine Editor and Vice President of XTERRA

TEAM Unlimited, the owners and producers of XTERRA, recently launched “The XTERRA Planet” – a quarterly magazine dedicated to the people, places and races of XTERRA.

The name for the publication is a spoof on the fictitious “Daily Planet,” the Metropolis newspaper that employed Clark Kent (aka Superman). And, just like that periodical, “The XTERRA Planet” will cover the exploits of superheroes in our community.

We’ve been building this magnificent collection of story ideas and images since our first race back in 1996, and now with this magazine we’ll be able to showcase the amazing people and incredible photography we’ve gathered along the way.

The late Steve Larsen graces the cover of the inaugural issue, a tribute to a man who made great contributions to XTERRA through the years. Other features include dramatic photo spreads, a piece on Jamie Whitmore’s “Miracle Twins”, a destination feature on Henderson, Nevada where the XTERRA West Championship will be held, fun Q and A’s with the sports biggest stars, updates from races around the world, and a story on one of the most successful trail run bloggers of our time.
