'''Guidelines:'''
Photos are to be primarily of the subject, well focused, clearly showing an example of the object with minimal obstruction(s) (preferably none).
+
*Vehicle should occupy the majority of the frame, be centered in the photo, and be the main focus.
 
+
*The photo should preferably show the entire front and one side of the vehicle or the entire rear and one side of the vehicle if a photo that shows the front is already available. Photos showing side detail are also permitted as long as the vehicle is centered in the shot
Photos should either be of the side of the subject or a 3/4 angle shot, showing the front and one side, or the rear and one side (the latter only when accompanied by a shot of the front and one side, or just of the side of the subject).
+
*Photos taken in sunlight should have both viewed sides of the vehicle in direct sunlight when possible, or minimal shadows that do not interfere with the viewing of the vehicle details.
 +
*The entire vehicle should be visible, i.e. not cut off by the edge of the photograph, or be partially obstructed by objects.
 +
*Watermarks are permitted, but should be minimal and not detract from the photo.
 +
*Pictures should be of good quality, i.e. no blurring or low pixelation.

Copyright

Please read the general disclaimer for information regarding copyright of photographs.

Photo Name

Photographs are to be named with the transit agency and the fleet number in the title.

There should also be a suffix added after the fleet number to allow for more than one photo of the same vehicle to be uploaded.

For example: Mississauga Transit 0109-a.JPG

DO NOT upload a new image and replace an already used suffix.

For further details please refer to the Naming Conventions page.

Photo Size

No thumbnails are to be uploaded as photos may be used for other pages where a larger size is required, for example manufacturer's pages, bus model pages, and the feature photo page

  • Vehicle should occupy the majority of the frame, be centered in the photo, and be the main focus.

  • Photos taken in sunlight should have both viewed sides of the vehicle in direct sunlight when possible, or minimal shadows that do not interfere with the viewing of the vehicle details.
  • The entire vehicle should be visible, i.e. not cut off by the edge of the photograph, or be partially obstructed by objects.
  • Watermarks are permitted, but should be minimal and not detract from the photo.
