We welcome your contribution of images to PathologyOutlines.com. Your contributions will be posted in the appropriate section of the relevant chapter. Unless you want to be anonymous, we will list your name as a contributor in the chapter, on the News page, and in our next monthly website news email. Your contribution will help pathologists and related professionals throughout the world who use our website as a primary resource.
If you have a Flickr account, you can upload the images directly to our Flickr group at http://www.flickr.com/groups/pathologyoutlines/. We will post your name as the contributor (unless you want to be anonymous) and link to the images in the appropriate chapter of our online textbook, so pathologists and related personnel throughout the world can benefit from them.
If you do not have a Flickr account, you may email the images to firstname.lastname@example.org in .jpg, .gif, or .tiff format. Please use the diagnosis and “image contribution” as the subject line. Each email should be no larger than 5 MB.
In general, we need gross, micro, immunohistochemistry and EM for all unusual disorders. If in doubt, feel free to contact us before taking or sending us your images.
Quality: We prefer the highest quality images possible. Our test for quality is whether the image is helpful to pathologists or other laboratory personnel in signing out or reviewing a case.
Copyright: We are happy to use images that you also use for other purposes. However, we suggest that you not send us the SAME photo that you have submitted for publication, because there may be copyright problems with the publisher. Just take another similar photo and send it to us. Even if they look identical, if they are actually different shots, there should not be a problem.
We advise visitors that they can use our images for educational purposes, so you should expect that any pictures you send to us may appear in educational lectures. They may also appear as image links for various search engines, and may be linked by other websites. However, we also advise visitors that they cannot copy pictures for commercial purposes and cannot post our images on other websites.
