The following information is provided to expand the summary:
Images/photographs must be provided by the author in all cases. Requests to "please visit **this site** and pick a couple of photographs" will not be honored. Articles without photographs, provided as email attachments as described in this section, will be rejected out of hand. A minimum of two (2) photographs must accompany each article submitted.
Photographs (or other images) must be a minimum of 400px (pixels) wide (height is not a consideration, in most cases) and with a resolution of 72DPI. Supplying higher resolution photos (e.g. 300DPI images typically used for printed materials) provides no benefit to an article published on this website.
Most images presented with articles are "non-captioned;" to the best of our ability they are placed in the presentation where the visual information is reflected in the text. In special cases, a caption may be provided. Captions may be 20 words or less and clearly indicate the image to which it refers.
There is an implied limit of one photograph per every 75 words of text. This means that a typical article of 300-350 words may use up to 5 images. Images actually published with an article are selected by Travel Savvy News and fewer images than provided may be used for any specific article. That being said: It is always better to provide slightly more images than necessary.
We recommend providing images that are no wider than 1000px, because all received images will be resized by our publication staff to fit the nature of this website. Typically, images used with articles on this website are 350-450px wide but occasionally, header images are used which are approximately 750px.
Provide the images as email attachments accompanying the article. In the event more than one email is required, include the article file with each additional email so we can keep things straight. Due to security and production considerations, we cannot use Dropbox or other file distribution website to obtain images from our authors.
Copyright ownership of images/photographs: As part of the email cover message for an article submission, please indicate who holds the copyright for the images. This can be as simple as "photos by the author." If images are drawn from another website, a credit line must accompany each image/photograph indicating the website.
If not a "stock image", "public domain" or "by the author" image, commercially created photographs must be accompanied by a "release form" from the original photographer.
