In your last patch note you guys said Get your Halloween pictures now before we remove halloween. So halloween pictures is not to be included in the Autumn submission?

"PNG files over 5MB will be converted to JPEGs. Non-animated images over 1MB for anonymous uploads and 5MB for account holders will be lossily compressed."

Since the winning screenshots will be used in a calendar, I think it makes sense people are allowed to upload them at full quality. So I really hope other sites will be allowed.

Here's an example of the same screenshot uploaded to abload and imgur.

Abload: https://abload.de/img/2016-11-04_3604239644usn.png
Imgur: http://i.imgur.com/NJzFpFK.jpg

Look at the face of the character to the right, or follow the edge of any tree. It's riddled with jpeg compression artifacts.

@CM_Aethon Can we edit the pictures as well? There's no rule for that! >:3

I hope we can't edit them... I'd feel a bit at a disadvantage since I have pretty much no skill when it comes to editing, but could maybe manage to capture a good screenshot. But maybe others are great at editing but suck at taking screenshots, so it'd help them compete? I don't know... but it's Kakao making the rules. If they want to allow editing, fine by me. I just have to take -the- perfect picture then! ;'D

Do we have to use imgur to upload screenshots? I could be wrong, but I think imgur can re-process images and downgrade their quality.

I've still not seen anything addressing the use OF or NOT to use Photoshop, Fireworks, etc. to do any editing.  Could someone answer please?  Thanks in advance.

I am 99.99% sure you're not allowed to edit them.

I think it would be unfair to allow editing, so I hope we have to submit them unedited . 

Everybody can take a screenshot ingame, but not everybody has access to editing software (I personally have, but still would find it unfair for many others that don't).

 

Besides that, looking forward to take some nice screenshots and see what others will post, good luck to everyone!
