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! 

access does not give you creative skills anyway :(

Can we use photoshop to enhance colours?

I'd like to know this as well, if we can edit them then what's the limit?

Too bad... I'd rather the staff/cm people do all the determination. The problem with determining winners based on player votes is that it'll all come down to which finalist has the biggest guild throwing votes their way. Same reason the beauty album had stupid guild logos as top downloaded character templates for awhile when a few guilds decided to use that as a medium for promoting the guild.

@Meereele:

We'll be adjusting the game during the above listed dates to allow for the appropriate seasonal setting for players to enjoy and participate in. This includes snow for the winter to provide some spectacular screenshots.

  • Season Dates:
    • Autumn Weather [Sep, Oct, Nov]: 11/4 - 11/9
    • Winter Weather [Dec, Jan, Feb]: 11/10 - 11/11
    • Spring Weather [Mar, Apr, May]: 11/12 - 11/13
    • Summer Weather [Jun, Jul, Aug]: 11/14 - 11/15

Those are the dates when you can get those screens. Right now we're in autumn weather, that's why we can see new seasonal trees. During this month, the weather will be changing so we can take the rest of the screenshots :)

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.

Imgur can (depending on size and compression type) re-compress images lowering the overall quality. To help prevent any potential issues with this, the winners will be contacted and offered a chance to provide the raw file to obtain maximum quality for print.

@CM_Aethon

Can we use photoshop to enhance colours?

A very good question! Screenshots can be very lightly retouched in photoshop (or other image software) however the overall feel must remain as a stock screenshot. This means no addition of content that was not present in the screenshot when it was taken (such as external assets), additionally you may only make minor adjustments to the following:

  1. Minor color adjustment (hue/saturation/brightness, curves, etc...)

Thank you :)
I have already uploaded my photographs for submission, can I edit the submission?
I understand that the photo must be original and no additional content that is not in the game be edited in to the photo.
Except colours and such thanks :)

Not a problem, the answer to your question is yes! The forms allow for users to make adjustments to their entry if a mistake was made or they would like to use a different picture. I've also updated the original post with a running FAQ for any additional questions that have been answered.

I was up in higher elevations just south of the Western Guard Camp and looking for seasonal looking trees for Autumn in the valleys. All I see are green trees, no changing colors... For Autumn weather, will the trees be changing colors?

As someone who's trying to collect most if not all the titles, i'm sad to see this one locked to only the winners. Here's to hoping you'll change it, but i'll try my best to be one of them :)

Autumn is around the cities Velia, Heidel and Calpheon, so check those areas.

 

I don't know about winter yet but if it is the proper winter patch than that's all over the place with snow and stuff, if Spring is like earlier this year it will also be around the aforementioned cities, I don't remember any special changes for summer but I would again suggest to check around those cities once those seasons come up in game during the next few days.
