Dear all,


i would like to upload some old photos (some of them more than a century old!) but i don't know which requirements do i have to respect in order to avoid to be rejected.


In particular i wolud like to know if there is a quality guideline and how to manage permissions and release form (how to behave when the subject is passed away long time ago and i don't know who his/her family members are?) and so on. Can you help me?


Best regards

If the reportage/archive button is live in your image manager then you already have permission. They bypass QC.

If not just ask MS, point them to the images on a website and they will decide if they qualify.

If you don't have releases just list as RM.
