Dicentra Workflow for internal Competitions (E.g. Shuffell, PDI of the Year)
[Team (eg LvG) or Inter-Club Comps need a different workflow!]
NOTE! Dicentra has evolved a lot and now can handle rescaling on the fly so PDIs can be loaded into competitions at the 2019 standard of 1600×1200 pixels.

Hopefully there won’t be any wrongly named files, esp names with missing/extra spaces/etc!
This creates Folder “Comp Name OUTPUT” somewhere on Desktop with jpgs renamed as 01_Image Title.jpg organised into sub-folders by entrants full name: hence need for their names right!!!
