Tips for watching the slideshows:

We realize how little time we all have, so we try not to make the slideshows any longer than necessary. Some readers have written in that the pictures don't stay up long enough to read the captions. At the bottom of the slideshow is a pause button. Located at the bottom left under the pictures. It is a double verticle bar. If you click on this it will stop the slideshow so you can look at the picture at your leisure and read the full caption.

We don't want to slow down the shows too much, though we appreciate you wanting more time to look and read about the pictures.

Another tip is you can click on the four squares located at the bottom of the slideshow toward the right. This will bring up a menu of thumb-nail images that you can scroll through to find certain shots you want to see in the slideshow without having to play it all the way through each time from scratch.

We hope these tips help you enjoy the slideshows of our community even more.

Your feedback can only make us better at what we do.The Meadville Tribune started accepting reader photos for a special web-site feature called ‘Reader’s Pictures of the Month’ back in September 2008. We put these submitted photos in a slideshow to showcase the talented photographers of the area as well as the casual snap shot photographer who took an image or two they wanted to share. These slideshows are getting our Web-site readers from all over the country taking a look to see what is happening, many are people who simply live elsewhere and want to see some of their old stomping grounds and possibly friends still enjoying life in Crawford County.

We’re continuing to accept entries. Currently we’re looking for pictures taken in February 2009. We’d love to see more pictures of people doing things, but continue to send in the scenics and animals as well.

Our criteria is simple, pictures taken in and around Crawford County or of Crawford Countians on vacation or even living elsewhere. Photographs of our troops would be wonderful to share with our readers, especially over the holidays.

To submit, please send jpeg images to

Be sure to include information such as who the photographer is, when the picture was taken, who is in the picture and any information about the scene that will put it into context. Example: John Smith age 7, of Conneaut Lake holds up a fish he caught on November 3rd while fishing behind his home. Photo taken by Joan Smith, proud mother of John. John loves fishing with his grandpa Joe every Saturday.

If you love photography or just love a picture you have snapped, we’d love to see it and share it with our readers. Click away!!!!
