Do I need to title my photos?
In short yes. Photos without titles are not enjoyed by the users of the platform as much as photos with titles. People want to know where photos are taken, and without titles your photos cannot be organically found so it is advantageous to you to do this. Photos without names will be sporadically deleted when found.

No, unless the photo is deleted for breach of our guidelines no earnings are lost

2) Add a description, if there\'s no description Google cannot find it 3) Make sure it is put in the proper category, if it\'s not in the proper category no one will view it

Why are my photos compressed?
We compress the photos for several reasons, firstly, it makes it harder for people to steal them and post elsewhere, as the platform they upload them to will compress the photos further completely destroying the quality. Secondly the smaller the photos the less it costs us to store and transmit therefore the more money we have to pay the photo uploaders. To counter this we have created a photo download store where you can sell high quality images as downloads or print on demand
Does ClickASnap own any rights to content I upload?
No, ClickASnap claims no rights to any media you upload to the platform in perpetuity
What can I upload?
As long as the content can be deemed suitable for a 4 year old, eg no gore, sex, violence, porn, nudity (full or partial, this means no strategically covered nudity, sheer or see through clothing, lewd or provocative poses and close ups of breasts, buttocks or crotches) and that you own the full copyright to the content you may upload it and make money from it. You can upload photos, artwork, album covers, basically as long as it is a still image and it fits within the ethos of the content already present on the platform then you can upload it.
If any of the above is breached, the first time your content will be deleted, the second time your account will be deleted and banned for life. You will also receive no remuneration from your uploads.
The exception to these rules is Meme\'s, overly promotional content or anything that doesn\'t have artistic nature to it. If these are found in your account they will be deleted and any earnings will be redacted. If found a second time your account will be banned and all earnings lost
