Examples of Image Quality

The Photo is Good- This can be used in an individual's album when a photo has been placed in the "reported Images" file. Sometimes well meaning individuals will flag photos that shouldn't be flagged. In order to remove it from your reported images file, please mark it as the "Photo is Good" to remove it from reported images. 


Good Photo Examples-

Although this one is harder to read, it is still a good photo. 

The photo is Blurred- This should only be used if the photo is so blurry you are unable to read what is on the stone, or determine if it is a stone at all. If the stone is readable, but a litte blurry, please transcribe it, as it will give people an incentive to replace it.
