1.1.1 Upload only unaltered images


Cloning anything in or out of a photo will mean that the photo will be rejected and you are running the risk of your upload privileges being withdrawn or limited for some time. Manipulating a photo is something we will never tolerate. We reserve ourselves the right to remove manipulated photos from the database. All that we allow to be cloned out are artefacts in the picture that look like sensor dust spots.


Any manipulation of a photo will not be tolerated and might result in a ban if repeated.
6.4 Manipulation


Altering of colors, other than adjusting the histogram and contrast is not accepted, for example: giving the sky a yellow cast to fake a sunset sky.


Black and white photos are only allowed on
◦ scans of B/W negatives/slides
◦ vintage aircraft or "vintage look alikes", i.e. retro painting schemes, replicas, etc.


Any other colour altering, including fake skies, inverting of colours, etc. is not allowed.


Any other altering during the editing process will be rejected, this means adding things that were not originally in the picture or removing significant elements of the shot. Recent examples are: addition of glare effects, altering of regs, etc.

1.1...

Ban...

6.4...

Ban...
Ok, I guess cheating is bad, but:

1.1- Do you like aviation

2.1- Do you like pretty pictures of airplanes?

I do not think they are capable of meeting our guidelines.

Don't alter anything or we will ban you, but contrast and histogram and dust spots are ok, and if the bright sun is casting shadows it's night.

Any other perversions I've missed?

-If a leaf of grass is obscuring a single pixel of a wheel of the plane, the jetphoto is rejected as "obstructed".
-Everything that is not 100% covered in sunlight is backlit.
-Beautiful hazy dawn propphotos are not allowed.

Beautiful, succinct and to the point.
