Here are some simple steps to help you take and send the best quality images to us:
- Clean the lens
Clean optics is key to a clear image free of spots or distortions. Use a duster or soft microfiber cloth to gently clear any dust, finger prints or debris that may have collected on the front of your lens.
- Turn off the flash
On camera flashes tend to create unwanted reflections in shinny or reflective objects such as items painted in enamel paint.
- Turn on HDR (High Dynamic Range)
If your camera has an HDR function turn it on, this will insure that highest amount of detail in the shadows and highlights is captured.
- Get the right light
The best light in most instances is going to be natural light, close to a window, outdoors. If you are going to take pictures indoors with overhead lights try to avoid bare bulb, or spot type lights these will create harsh shadows and unwanted reflections.
- Get close and fill the viewfinder
Try to fill the entire frame of your viewfinder or screen to get the most detail, images that are taken too far way will have little detail.
- Make sure you are sending full resolution files
Some email clients such as Apple Mail tend to shrink the size of your image, check at the top of your email to make sure the image size says actual size.
