We are very excited about including your pill images in our Contributed gallery.  We are particularly looking forward to receiving your digital photographs and scans of any pills you may have.  Please do not upload images which are clearly copyrighted (ie GSM images from Eckerd Drugs).

A good rule of thumb is that if the image is the product, do not upload the image.  For example, GSM's marketable product which they license to many people is their pill photograph database.  The use of their images would be tantamount to stealing their property.

On the other hand, if the image is of a product, it is probably ok to upload the image if the source is clearly cited. An example would be a pharmaceutical manufacturer's picture of their own pill.  In this case, the product is the pill, and our use of the image would not infringe on the ability of the manufacturer to sell their product.

Also, please limit the use of inlined images to thumbnail size and always cite the source.

I hope these rules are simple and clear enough that everybody will be able to follow them.  Please feel free to ask any questions you may have in the forums.
