How do you "crop" a photo like "Lil'D (5mo morgan foal)" by Lianne Eaton Cook when you enter Photo of the Day? All I get is a cropping equal size height and width.

Clint,

Crop the photo on your PC/Mac how you want it to display on our PotD page. The Crop tool you see when submitting a photo is for the small thumbnail on the main page at Steve's. It does not affect the photo that is displayed on the actual PotD page; same photo Jim uses for the forums posts as well.

Good luck!

OK - so it's the home page "preview" if it's selected. Then clicking on it takes you to the "uncropped" picture at POTD. I couldn't quite understand how the "horse" picture got those dimensions. I very seldom go to the home page to see the difference. Thanks for the quick reply.

Why are there no more "monthly" winners.

Yeah, I guess it can be confusing if you don't visit the home page much.

Unfortunately, we have had no sponsors for the PotD contest in several months. I don't see the point in picking monthly winners with no prizes. I'm hoping this changes soon however, as we have been in negotiations with some entities about sponsoring some PotD prizes.
