How do I upload my pictures?

More information can also be found on the Introduction page.

What kind of pictures may I post?

First of all: In this context "picture" means photography.

Your picture will be connected to a map position, so it has to be related to a geographical place. If you choose to post a photo of flowers, animals, local people etc you should apply a description which explains the geographical connection. But please be diverse, and do not let one type of subject dominate your postings.

Photos where you and/or your travel companions make a large part of the picture are slightly off-topic. Also, they hardly ever have an obvious geographical connection. When you post this kind of photos, please tick the chekbox called "Tag as private picture". This will make it easier for visitors to distinguish pictures of places and pictures of tourists visiting places.

Obviously off-topic pictures will be removed. If you post a picture which do not comply
with the posting policy, it will be removed by a moderator.

The file format of your picture has to be JPEG. When uploading your photo will be down scaled to meet the default image size of 1000 x 1000 pixels.

Please post only your own material. See the Terms of Service for more information on copyrights.
