No memes. This includes references in titles of your post (e.g. "banana for scale," "potato quality").
Related posts must be in the comments of the original. Posts that acknowledge, "one-up," or relate specifically to another post are not allowed (e.g. "I see your X and raise you Y")
Do not post something that has been submitted to reddit before, even if you were the one who posted it.
a. All submissions must be original and non-animated photographs.
b. All submissions must be original content. If you didn't take the picture, don't post it.
c. Software glitches/errors, overlaid text, arrows, scribbles, and other substantive edits are not allowed, although you may censor personal information per Reddit-wide rules.
d. Side by side images are okay if they adhere to the rest of the rules.
No screenshots. We define a screenshot as a screen grab. This means no images of screens, pictures of screens taken with a different device, images that have been partially or fully generated by a computer, or pictures of printed out screenshots. Try /r/screenshots!.
a. Titles must not contain jokes, backstory, or other fluff. That information belongs in a follow-up comment.
b. Titles must exactly describe the content. It should act as a "spoiler" for the image. If your title leaves people surprised at the content within, it breaks the rule!
c. Titles must not contain emoticons, emojis, or special characters unless they are absolutely necessary in describing the image.
