How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

NEW YEAR SYSTEM UPGRADES: DigameXtra has extended the daily submissions deadline to 6pm to accommodate businesses that have “tarde” hours. I have also upgraded the blog to now accept photos of up to 4Mb file size, to accommodate those less tech savvy readers who cannot figure out how to shrink photo file sizes. However, if you are able to do so, please limit photos to 2Mb file size.
