Guidelines for choosing photos
  • Choose engaging photographs that show a slice of life at JMU.
  • Choose photos that reveal our diverse campus community and represent the energy of the Madison experience.
  • Select active academic photos with good student/faculty interaction instead of passive classroom shots.

Photo editing: 

Many photos can benefit from minor adjustments.

  • Enhancing image quality is good, but severely altering an image is not. So minimizing shadows on someone’s face is fine, but changing their features is not.
  • Never horizontally flip photos, which also alters reality.
  • Draw attention to key subject matter in photos by cropping out unnecessary image area.
