Tips for taking pictures
Recommended formats: 1600 x 1200 pixels or larger. 300dpi RGB JPEG. The bigger the better. We can accept images sent through dropbox and other fileshare sites
Focus and set-up: Try to keep a main subject in focus, with minimum noise in the background.
Lighting: Remember to check your exposure and white balance. Use low ISO settings and always observe the angle of your light source to avoid lens flares. Where possible take the picture with access to natural light.
Effects: Adding effects may compromise the quality of the image and how it is used, so avoid adding any borders, rotations, image filters or effects.
