Quote from: KaDi on June 23, 2006, 02:08:52 PMThis message sent to me from Becky with the new round of photos might help clear up a few points. (Emphasis mine.)"Here is a photo for you. I know you've been through this process, but here's the guidelines we're sending to all volunteers!The image is sized and cropped. Basic color corrections are great, but don't worry too much as we will put the final correction on them to calibrate to the printers. Once you are done, just send it back in the highest jpeg quality!Following are guidelines that we ask you to follow while restoring this image (I realize some seem obvious... we send this to all volunteers):1. Your main goal should be to restore the memory that this photo invokes in its owner.2. Do not over restore. If the image becomes unrecognizable from its original form, than you risk damaging the emotional connection that the image holds with its owner. It is better to let some damage remain in order to preserve the integrity of the image.3. Do not add what was never there. Adding an interesting background may make for a better photo, but it does not serve our purpose.4. Do not use body parts from other images to replace missing ones in the photo that you are restoring. The owners of these images will immediately recognize anything that's "wrong". If you have multiple photos of the same subject matter, it may be permissible to use some parts of one to better restore another, but only if the effect remains natural looking and does not adversely affect the integrity of the image.5. Stick to your deadline. If you cannot meet the deadline, contact us immediately to work out an alternate plan.6. Be proud of what you're doing. You have a great heart for volunteering!"Perhaps these guidelines could be added somewhere here and/or on the site where we'll be picking up our images? ::)
