Members of the Society can join online through logging in to MY RPS today.  Once in to your MY RPS account page then simply click the blue box that says ‘Renew or join a Special Interest Group’ and then tick the box to join us.

Tick either Digital Imaging or Digital Imaging Online (not both).  The amount shown is that which you will be charged pro rata to bring you up to your RPS renewal date, as both SIG and Society subscriptions run concurrently.

We hope we will soon be welcoming you as a new DIG member.

Communicating with members

  • In between issues of DIGIT, online members receive the Group's 'DIG News' newsletters, to keep them up to date with current activities and any late changing news.
  • The Committee page gives contact details for the Group's Committee members, and we are always open to views and ideas from members via this route too.

Submit one of your images for the DI Group home page

DI Group members: would you like to see one of your images on the DI Group home page?

We want to keep our home page interesting by changing the main image 'slide show' from time to time. You may have an exciting image that you think will be suitable, and we'd love to see it.
There are one or two things you'd need to know before you submit an image. Firstly, you can see that the images are rather 'panoramic', so we need images that lend themselves to this shape. Also, quite a lot of the image is hidden along the top and bottom margins. We have created a simple template overlay HERE for you to see whether your image will be suitable - it is a simple PSD file with a background and one layer.. The template has the exact pixel dimensions required of your final image.

In simple terms images need to be 1085px x 605 px but only the centre 1020 px x 380 will be fully visible. So choose an image that will be suitable for those sizes.

Please send your images to digweb@rps.org.

If you need more detailed guidance - perhaps you haven't yet explored the necessary Photoshop tools - please see our blow-by-blow procedures HERE.
