There is a maximum size for the images in one zip file he takes, but I can't remember, so the best for you is to just contact him through the site and get the info!

u dont need subway car number, the model yes, and u just load to a Zip file, in your email u give a discripition about the shots

 

I suggest 10 Shots, and make them JPEG, seeing that too much he may not take, plus certain Email providers give you limits of uploading size

 

before you do submit it, maybe you can show us, and we can see how nice are there :)

Don't think he should upload 500 of his photos, you'll see when he puts them on NYCSUBWAY.ORG

 

but how will he now the subway car #?

 

You upload the images in a zip file, around 10 of them per email, attach the zip file to email and then in the email description for each photo you give the details:

Country:

City:

System:

Line:

Location:

Route:

Car: (including car # if you have)

Photo by:

Date:

 

Remember this info had to be precise for each photo you submit, so for example: you have picture #1, so in the email description you say #1 and add the details. I hope this made it clear. B)

You have to know the car number of the subway trains you have taken.....it depends on the angle of the pic of the train you take it. The car numbers sometimes will pop up in the pic.....if you don't know the car number then its cool. As long you provide him the date of the pic taken, subway line (BMT Broadway, IND Central Park West, IRT Lexington Avenue), subway car model and subway station!
