Who retains the rights to my images?
You do. Unlike many other photo sharing platforms, you retain the rights to your images. In the future we may offer you the ability to sell your images at a profit. We do need to retain the right to use your images for display within and on the platform (for example to display them as a most popular image or prize winner) and in the promotion of our platform (for example blog posts or shared links) but we will not use them for any other purpose without express written permission from you. If you are protective of your work we do recommend and encourage uploading your images with watermarks.
What is the maximum size high resolution image I can upload?
Our uploader should be able to handle almost all image sizes. Currently we do limit file size to 8 mb, but we are working on expanding that in the very near future.
Is PhotoScramble a place where I can store my images?
Technically, yes you can. We will eventually have a print service integrated so that people can purchase your images for print, and you can print your own right from the PhotoScramble platform.
Can I print from PhotoScramble?
Currently, we are not offering a print service, however, integration with digital printing labs is something we are diligently working toward in the near future.
Why do I need to register to vote?
If you are asked to register to vote, it is because we allow the contest host to determine if they will allow anonymous voting or to require that voters are registered and verified. Typically if a host is offering a significant prize they and everyone who enters a contest wants to be confident that no one has “stuffed the ballot box”. So, in order to do this, we ask that you register through Facebook or that you provide your email address and that you verify your email address by simply clicking on the link provided in your registration email.
