GUIDE: Uploading an Episode Image to ShareTV
The following outlines Image Requirements and Tips for Episode 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.
Note. All images should be of a good quality, not fuzzy, not stretched, not dark and not over bright, and of the correct ratio and size (as below).
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.
