Image Quality Standards

We, at Rewa Images, believe that a quality marketplace demands quality content which means the best from our contributors. Images captured by the contributor must be uploaded only in the digital format. We recommend that you maintain an accurate focus, a clean camera lens, good lighting conditions, and proper camera settings. While we would love to see a lot of your work, avoid submitting similar shots. We trust you to pick the best. As a photographer, we recommend that you edit your own work.

 

File Size and Dimensions

All images submitted to Rewa Images must be of shortest edge resolution, greater than 1200px. We recommend the images to submitted at the highest quality so as to produce the best file dimensions.

 

The Right File Formats

We accept images in JPG and PNG(for vectors) formats. Make sure you save the file in the required format before uploading it.

 

Naming your Files

Stick to simple file names that do not contain any special characters, symbols or accents. While digits are allowed, refrain from using full stops (.) , quotation marks (“ ‘), commas, spaces and dashes.
