Default Screenshots|52|Image Editing
1: The required screenshots have two or more significant problems with image quality, such as being very distorted, blurry and crunchy, and/or heavily edited in a photo editor (such as Photoshop). This makes it impossible for us to assess the quality of your creation. All required should be straight from the game with minimal editing that does not alter the in-game appearance of the items. Minor edits like cropping, collaging together photos, adding a small border or unobtrusive text are fine. Filters like sharpen, blur, levels, colour adjustment, etc., should not be used on the required screenshots, as downloaders would like to see what it will look like in their game. To avoid distorting the images or making them crunchy, make sure to maintain the correct aspect ratio when resizing images, and never enlarge images. Also make sure that your photo editor is not compressing the images too heavily when saving. You may edit any additional screenshots as you like, of course, but make sure the required ones are not edited.|Screenshot Basics|Screenshot Basics CAS

2: The required screenshots for your creation are very distorted, either stretched or squashed. This is most often caused by resizing the image and not retaining the aspect ratio. It can also be caused in TS2 by not having "use square pixels" checked in your game options.|Screenshot Basics|Screenshot Basics CAS

2: The required screenshots for your creation have been edited in a photo editor ("Photoshopped") and it makes it impossible to tell the quality of your creation. Required screenshots should be straight from the game with minimal editing (cropping, collaging together photos, adding a small border or text is fine). Filters like sharpen, blur, levels, colour adjustment, etc., should not be used on the required screenshots, as downloaders would like to see what it will look like in-game.

2:The required screenshots for your creation are very blurry or crunchy, which makes it impossible to see your creation(s). This can be caused by several things: Enlarging screenshots, using the in-game camera (C key) in TS2, turning compression too high or quality too low when saving images in your graphics editor, and using image formats other than JPG. Your images can be up to 2560x1440 pixels, and 800kb - larger images usually mean better quality.|Screenshot Basics|Screenshot Basics CAS

3: The required screenshots for your creations have been edited in a photo editor ("Photoshopped") but the edits performed do not significantly alter the in-game appearance of this creation.

3: The required screenshots for your creation are a little blurry or crunchy, but not so much so that it interferes with seeing the quality. Your images can be up to 2560x1440 pixels, and 800kb - larger images usually mean better quality.|Screenshot Basics|Screenshot Basics CAS

3: The screenshots have a very heavy fisheye effect; this distortion makes it difficult to see your creation.

5: The required screenshots for your creations are clear and have not been edited in a photo editor ("Photoshopped") in any way that alters the in-game appearance of the creation. This gives downloaders a good idea of what your creation will look like in their game. Thanks!
