Why did my photograph not get published?

Here are a few reasons :-
  • Be patient, it can take up to 12 hours for a moderator to add it.
  • It was not related to Wigan!
  • It was of poor quality, eg, too small or too blurred.
  • It was too recent, old photos only please.
  • It was not suitable for a family audience.
  • Copyright! Please don't scan newspapers/books.

If your photo did not get added, the reason why is listed above. Please try opening the image on your computer, it will fall into one of these categories. Usually the image is too small or you have scanned the whole scanner bed and not the photo.

My photo won't upload

Make sure there are no characters like &, %, etc. in your filename, these can sometimes confuse the uploading of images. Saving a picture as 'pic3.jpg' is better than 'St. Wilf's & Co,. jpg'

My photo still won't upload

Maybe it is too big? Try compressing it with some image software first. An ideal size would be less than 200K.


If you place a photo in the top corner of your scanner, please be sure to scan the photo only and not the entire scanner bed. Use the crop tool provided with your scanner software. If you don't, the image is a large A4 size white picture with a postage stamp sized copy of your photo!

If all else fails

Please email me the photo with details and I will add it on your behalf. If there is a problem I will be able to reply to let you know what the problem is and hopefully we can solve it.

Thank you,
