Upload Policy

In order to upload images to Gallery, you must agree to the following rules:

  1. Please refrain from posting any images that have been manipulated digitally such as converting color images to black and white, photoshop filtering tricks, etc. Also no multi-media/mixed media hybrid images or hybrid images in general, this includes digitally enlarged negatives which are then contact printed (see our sister site hybridphoto.com if you are interested in sharing such work). All images posted should be a representation of 100% traditional work, typically negative scans or print scans produced from a 100% traditional workflow.

    The uploaded image should be the best representation of the actual final print and nothing more. We still accept neg scans in the galleries. We accept that some adjustment of contrast, brightness and sharpness may be needed to match the physical print and, for negative scans, to approximate a straight print.

  2. All images are the copyright of their respective owners.
    You may not use any of the images in the APUG Gallery for any purpose without the permission of the copyright holder.

  3. You must own the copyright, or have permission from the copyright holder for any images you upload to the APUG Gallery. Uploaded images do not and will not infringe on any rights of any third party, including any trademark, copyright, patent, trade secret, right of privacy or publicity or moral rights of any third party

  4. You may NOT upload any images containing material that is of pornographic nature, illegal, defamatory, threatening, obscene, promoting racism, hatred or discrimination of any kind. Images may NOT violate child pornography or child sexual exploitation laws.

  5. You may not upload any material that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality of any computer software or this website.

  6. By uploading an image,
    (a) you grant Photocentric Ltd. permission to use the image on any Gallery page or APUG page


    (b) you agree to indemnify Photocentric Ltd. and hold Photocentric Ltd. harmless from any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys' fees, arising from the image and/or your failure to comply with this policy.

  7. The decision of the APUG.ORG moderators on removing content or banning users is taken by the moderators and is final.

Any images found to break these rules will be removed with no warning. Anyone who uploads an image that violates our rules could be banned from using the Gallery without any prior notice.

In the case of violation of our policy, we may share any and all information we hold on the user concerned with any interested 3rd parties. Child Pornography related issues will be reported to legal authorities without exception.

If you believe one of our members has uploaded images to APUG.ORG that break these rules, please use the 'report image' link so we can take appropriate action.


If somebody is using a picture that you uploaded, we suggest that you contact the individual who posted it. Unless the image violates our policy, we're not able to remove images if you don't own the copyright of this image.

As a general rule, do not post images in the APUG Gallery, if you are not comfortable having others viewing them.
