  • Photo/video quality is important. If you dont have a phone with a good camera, use an actual camera for better quality. After your photo or video is taken, simply email it to yourself, download it onto your phone and post away!

  • Depending on your content, try to capture your photo or video in a well lit area when possible.
    • If youre outside, find a nice shaded area. Avoid direct sunlight.
    • If youre inside, shoot near a window for natural lighting.
