Gallery Submissions: What is ACCEPTABLE DIGITAL ADDITIONS
What is acceptable digital additions? And will my artwork be accepted?
Traditional-Art-Only is named as such to represent how the admins want a group that features traditional artwork in its purest form possible in an online environment.
Because this is an online place, we have put together some guidelines of what we will allow and what we won't allow in our group's galleries.
We will accpet artwork that has...
Only use a digital program to fix the lighting/tones to the original values if your camera/scanner has changed them.
Add a simple digital mat/frame. (NOT a digitally added photograph or simulated frame)
Add a copyright/website url or similar watermark or logo.
The types of digial additions or edits that we will not accept are...
Absolutely NO digital work, filters/colors or background and NO digital brushes or text may be included in your traditional art submission.
PNG or GIF files with original backgrounds removed will NOT be accepted.
Digitally erasing or painting parts or all sections of your traditional art to touch-up, fix, or change an area.
There have been some cases were the admins have decided to accept traditional artwork that has some digital text added. Please understand that this is rare and limited to only the following restrictions...
Digital text MIGHT be accepted if it meets the following:
Info allowed: title, artwork dimensions, artist's name and/or website.
Must be outside the artwork.
Any digital text acceptance is at the sole discretion of group admins.
Please also understand that if you submit works that violate these restrictions, you are risking having your membership revoked. It is rare, but we have had to remove submitting memberships for consistantly violating group submission rules.
