The CATS Photo Library is set up to store photos taken by members and to provide a valuable resource for use in CATS presentations, promotional materials, classes, and other purposes. We invite and encourage you to contribute photos you take at projects, tree sales, potting parties, and tree walks, as well as beautiful trees you may encounter while out walking in the woods or on the Notable Trees tour.
All Tree Stewards have access to the photos whenever needed to educate, illustrate, motivate and inspire ourselves and external audiences.
But for it to be a successful resource, we need your participation! And wouldn’t you like to see your photo in CATS promotional materials or in a presentation?
Instructional guides for how to access and use the CATS Photo Library on the SmugMug website are at the links below. We strongly recommend you thoroughly review the uploading and downloading guides first before adding titles, captions and keywords. Then explore the library to see the photos that have been uploaded so far and the organizational structure. This should give you a good idea of what types of photos you may wish to share and the best folder to file them in.
