Image and Photography Guidelines

  • Background: Shoot on a white non-high key background. Suitable materials include fleece (Westcott recommended), paper muslin, or vinyl.
  • Lighting: Light the subject, not the background. This helps the background shift to a light to medium gray, which is ideal for BGR.
  • Composition: Ensure the subject is not shot off the background.
  • File Size: Each image's file size must be under 8 MB (megabytes) and 24 MP (megapixels)
