GUIDE: Uploading a Large Character Image to ShareTV
The following outlines Image Requirements and Tips for Large Character Image Uploading and how to upload the image.
It is NOT a Guide to how to crop, enhance, or resize an image.
If you still need help after reading this Guide please ask a Moderator.
IMPORTANT This refers to the Large Character Image (uncropped) that you kept during cropping to obtain the character image for uploading.
See GUIDE: Uploading a Character Image to ShareTV
Note. All images should be of a good quality, not fuzzy, not stretched, not dark and not over bright.
Ratio is NOT important
If in the opinion of a Moderator an image is sub-standard for any reason they are empowered to correct or replace it WITHOUT reference to you.
However a Moderator may request you to do the correction.
Please report any bad image you find to a Moderator who may ask the original uploader to correct or replace or may do it themselves.
Before Uploading you should comply with the following
01. Image should show the full image of the character as they appear in the show itself.
01.a. Only in exceptional circumstances will a picture of the actor themselves be allowed.
