Preview issue...

Forgive me as Ive been out of the game for awhile but when I upload a B/W image for a contest the preview looks fine but after I submit it looks completely washed out. It only does this on black and white submissions. Is it something in the way I'm saving the file? thanks in advance

Hmm. I have never encountered that. What file format are you using? I always upload in jpeg and that seems to work. It's also worth mentioning that the longest side of a picture shouldn't be longer than 2400 px if you want to avoid compression.

i always upload in jpeg format but i believe i figured it out. when I do, file-Save AS, and upload to the contest the preview is very white washed but if I go, file-export-save for web i don't seem to have a problem. weird that it only happens with B/W though. Thanks for the response

I always use 'save for web' for DB contest entries and never had an issue with uploads. Glad you are sorted now! :)
