    (note: the above gallery link isn’t yet set up for voting. I only recently upgraded to PRO version. )

    We want to create a contest gallery for photo club members to upload images which will be reviewed by a separate set of judges. I think I understand how to limit uploads to members (based on email addresses) but am not sure about details. In addition, I want to limit judging to a set of three judges from outside the club. How do I go about that?

    Also, we want to limit images to only JPG. I didn’t see how to do that although I see how to limit dimensions and image sizes.

    Thanks.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Limit to only special set of people is not possible.
    This are the recognition methods:

    If you use only for logged in users. Then all logged in users can vote, doesn’t matter what role.
    Best methad to acocomplish what you like is to use cg_gallery shortcode with a special page which is only for judges who should vote
    and cg_gallery_no_voting shortcode to display the gallery on another page for people who not vote.

    Limit to only JPG is not possible.
    JPG, PNG, GIF is always allowed.

    Thanks. Sounds useful; I’ll give it a try.

    Clarification, please:
    We want our judges to use a 1-5 rating system for each image they judge (there could be 20 or more images for each judge to rate in each category).
    If we use “Allow vote via 5 star rating” for this gallery, how does the scoring work?
    From the Five Star Rating Example in https://www.contest-gallery.com/voting-types/, it appears that clicking on the rating stars for each image in this example gives the number of votes for each rating level (1-5) and the average number of stars for that image. Correct?

    It would be very useful to have a 1-10 rating system or better a 1.0 to 5.0 rating system. This would avoid tie votes for images.

    More explanation: We typically use three judges who each review and rate around 20 or more images in each of four categories. Pre-Covid-19, we did all of this ‘live’ at meetings, but we’re working to adapt to changed circumstances.

    “the average number of stars for that image. Correct?”
    That is correct.
    1-5 star voting is average percentage based. It has same calculation logic like on amazon.
    Here an example:

    If you scroll down it will be explained on left side.

    “It would be very useful to have a 1-10 rating system ”
    It was really tough to implement all 1-5 logic with sorting in backend and frontend.
    1-10 will be never released.
    But sorting of 1-5 star by cummulation is something what is in planing.
    For example, one picture has 2*2, 1*3, so it will be 2+2+3=7 points as total.
