We recommend that you always upload your photos in the original resolution from camera. They will automatically be resized to a smaller optimal size when displayed on Artpx.com and the high-resolution file will not be made public.
All photos on Artpx. are automatically watermarked by us with your name. You are not allowed to add your own watermarks or copyrights on photos sent to the curators, because we want all the photos in the gallery to have a uniform style and watermarks are sometimes disturbing.
Photos sent to the curators for consideration in the gallery should not contain any borders because we want to keep an elegant style in the gallery and borders are sometimes distracting. If your photo is a diptych or triptych borders are allowed in curation, but please make them as discrete as possible. In your profile, you are allowed to add borders to your photos.
It is very important to add a suitable title and description for each photo you upload, You are not allowed to use random or meaningless numbers for the photo title and make sure to upload the photos in a correct category and possibly add tags. Check the NSFW checkbox to enable not-safe-for-work images.
All parts of photos sent to the curators must consist of photos taken by you. You are not allowed to use stock photos in montages. For photos only uploaded to your profile, make sure you have sufficient rights to display them, as you are responsible for any copyright infringes.
Make sure to always convert photos to standard sRGB using “Convert to profile” in Photoshop and then save them in JPG format using “Save for web” to ensure that colours are not altered when you upload photos to Artpx.com
Each photo will be sent to the official curators and is evaluated in terms of idea, mood, aesthetics and technical quality. Originality and variation in the gallery are very important. There is no computer algorithm which decides whether photos are published in the gallery or not, but each and every decision is taken by a real person.
When curation is finished, you will receive an Email only if the photo was published. if rejected, we will only notify you in the website. Consider your profile as a portfolio of all the photos you consider to be your best.
