Best practices when uploading photos and videos on IndieFrame

by Newsroom 1 year ago

 IndieFrame receives hundreds of pictures everyday. We are very happy about every upload we received. Without our inspiring and engaging users, none of our work would be possible.  To support our users in navigating the often confusing and difficult space of what you can and cannot do when taking pictures and uploading them to the platform, IndieFrame here provides some best practices. Only upload content you own: On uploading a picture you press "I own the rights for this content". Thereby you state that you have ownership of the continent. This means that you have created it, or has obtained ownership of it. If the picture is not created by you, has been downloaded from the web, or has been taken by someone else, the content is as a general rule not yours. IndieFrame
