Photo Tips[]

  • Take advantage of the Light/Shadow/Color sliders! You can customize these to your hearts content to get that shot just right!
  • Want to use a filter? Do it to it! We're looking for creativity, so spicing up a photo with a filter could add that extra edge to your entry!
  • If we can't see what's going on in your photo, it'll be very hard to pick your entry, now won't it? So, good lighting, or a healthy dose of mood lighting is a super help to your entry! Utilize lighting sources like torches, electrical lights (dyed lights make great mood lighting for some scenarios!) and the miners helmet to give your screenshot a boost if it's just a bit too dark to get a proper shot.[1]
