Extremely poor quality. Photos with off-site web addresses or that HAZ deems to be luring viewers off-site will be deleted. HAZ reserves the right to remove any material on site without notice.
Digital photos include camera settings, time, and sometimes geolocation data in what is called the EXIF header. Processing software like Photoshop may not save EXIF if you create a new image and paste into it. If the EXIF data is left intact then it will be displayed to the lower right of the photo. Once a photo is uploaded the data can not be changed. HAZ calculates out the 35mm equivalence of data.

EXIF is enabled by default on all photosets. You may disable per photoset or all via Photoset Options.
The universal Jpeg format commonly seen as .jpg is most common. .png & .gif are accepted too

You are responsible for what you post. Polite and courteous is the best choice when interacting with members you disagree.

Soliciting negative reaction does not help the community.

Self incriminating yourself knowingly or unknowingly then expecting a safe harbor is unlikely.

How to select photos in upload on Android and iPhone.
If photos are too big you may have issues. Simply upload less at a time.

The acceptable format is .jpg, be sure .jpg is the format you are uploading.

If you are still having issues please contact the webmaster.
Click +Add at the top of any page and select Photoset. Now you are in the photo upload panel. Either select a guide name or enter a generic name. Press the "Select" button to proceed. Now select photos from your device to upload. Repeat as needed. Please be patient during upload, it will take anywhere from a few seconds to a several minutes depending on your internet connection and the number of photos selected. Wait for the screen to refresh between each batch. Pay attention to the updated status at the top of the screen.
A photoset is a group of photos added by one member for one trip.
Once you have uploaded all the photos for your photoset either click on the preview or finish button in the upload panel.
If you choose preview remember they are not live to the public until you click finish.
