|First things first:
If you’d like to post, sign up for an account HERE and then email me HERE and I’ll get your account configured properly.
And now for the Guidelines:
The folks over at JPGMag.com said this a lot better than I ever could have, so I’ve reproduced their guidelines here. http://www.jpgmag.com/about/photos.html
You should also take a look at and possibly print out this list of Photographer’s Rights
|NO Digitally-Added Text||NO Multiple Photos in a Single Upload|
|You do not need to add a copyright statement to your photos in order to protect them. Your photos are protected under copyright law anyway, and you don’t lose that protection by uploading them here.||This rule does not apply to found photos that are scanned and uploaded front & back in one image. Properly formatted diptychs and triptychs are allowed as well.|
|NO Misrotated Photos||NO Digital Enlargements|
|There’s no way to rotate a photo once it’s been uploaded, so please rotate your photos to the correct orientation before uploading them.||Please do not enlarge your photos to be larger, as it lowers the image quality dramatically.|
|NO Digitally-Added Borders||NO Partial Desaturation (aka “Cutouts”)|
|Your photo may automatically have a thin border on the site, please don’t add a border to your images. If your photo has a “natural” border from the film, that’s okay.||Desaturating part of an image to direct the eye to the remaining color part is a cute technique, but it violates our “mostly unmodified” rule, and, besides, it’s just annoying.|
|NO Things that Aren’t Photos||No Posed Tourist Shots|
|The following things are not allowed in JPG: scans of things other than photos, paintings (or simple photos of paintings), illustrations, screenshots. If it didn’t come out of a camera, it doesn’t belong here.||You can take photos of things that tourists take photos of, just make sure you DON’T slap your Mom or yourself right in the middle of it with a big, silly grin and a fanny pack.|
|So what do we want? We want your best photos, your favorite photos. Photos that you look at and think, you know, there’s something really special about this one, and I’d like to share it with other people who have a thing for photography. Remember, if you went out, shot some photos, didn’t tweak them too much, and uploaded them here, chances are you’re fine.
And the final big rule that you really shouldn’t break: Don’t upload a photo unless you took it. Obviously, this rule doesn’t apply to antique, found photos.
