A note about Getting The Best Image

  1. Images under 600 pixels will not be accepted. Ideal size is 2000 pixels. 
  2. Images should not be blurry or grainy when opened at full size. 
    People often confuse pixel size or image size with the quality of the image. An image can be large but blurry or small but clear. The image MUST meet both size + clarity requirements.
  3. Full representation of the image is required. Images with any part of the work cut off will not be accepted. 
  4. No glare or reflection. A straight-on shot of work is ideal, BUT a slight angle is fine if to reduce glare. 
  5. To ensure that the proper color is represented, lighting should be even to avoid creating large shadows or hot spots on work.

    If you have any questions about this form, please contact us via email at lpresse@liftcommunities.org or call 323-679-5349 and ask to speak to Laura Presse.
