Image Requirements & Technical Specifications for Tracks

The image requirements below ensure a consistent and harmonious tone across our platform. To save you time and increase your track’s chance of being featured, make sure that your submissions meet these. If the accompanying track image submitted does not adhere to our requirements, we reserve the right to reject the track until these are met.

To give you a better idea of our visual style, here are sample imagery for tracks in general, for kids, and for sleep. You may visit Unsplash.com, Pixabay.com, and Pexels.com for royalty-free images.

MINIMUM SIZE
Your track's or course's accompanying image must be high-resolution with at least 1600x1600 pixels, and a maximum file size of 5mb. Content with images less than this size will not be approved.

COPYRIGHT/ROYALTY-FREE
You either must own the rights to your track's or course's images or it must be royalty-free and in the public domain. Shall the need arises, we may require proof of ownership/permission.

PHOTO STANDARDS
We don’t accept blurry images, images containing excess noise, busy backgrounds, selfies, or images taken at extreme angles

We also don’t accept black-and-white images, composite images (aka collages or the combination of multiple images merged into a single surface), digital artworks, illustrations, abstract, and other non-photographic images.

Over-edited images are also not accepted. Specifically, photos that are over-sharpened, over-saturated, over-exposed, have selective colors picked out on black and white photos, as well as those with heavy vignetting.

Images should also not have borders, graphics, text or watermarks overlaid on them. Borders include photos with a border, or partial borders of any color. Graphics include logos, clipart or any additional elements or overlays that are not original to the photo. Text includes time stamps, hand lettering, fonts, photos that includes letters or numbers (print on t-shirts, signages, wall writings, etc.).

IMAGE SUBJECT
Images must be uplifting and inspirational so please steer clear of images that portray sad, distressing or bleary situations and scenes like calamities, people shouting or crying, etc. Similarly, images must also not contain nudity, be sexually suggestive, or depict any violence. We also don't accept possible phobia-triggering images like spiders, snakes, closely-packed holes, and others. Likewise, we do not allow photos of cash, bills, currencies, coins, piggy banks, gold, treasure chest the stock market, and other images explicitly referencing to money and monetary wealth.

TEACHER PORTRAITS AS TRACK IMAGES
We only allow headshots/portraits for Talks and non-sleep Guided Meditations. If you wish to use your headshot or portrait image, make sure that they comply with our Teacher Profile Requirements.

KIDS & SLEEP TRACKS IMAGERY
Illustrations, artworks, graphics or cartoons are only allowed for tracks intended for an audience of Kids/Teenagers, as supervised by parents/guardians. We don't allow the use of such for other kinds of tracks. You may check Shutterstock.com for such images. Here is also some sample imagery for tracks for kids.

Meanwhile, for tracks that have either “Improve sleep quality” or “Sleep deeply now” as primary or secondary benefit, we require the accompanying image to be conducive to sleep. Examples of this are photos of starry skies or dark macro images of plants and leaves with muted and soothing colors. Fiery sunsets or dawns as well as photos of sleeping people and/or beds will not be allowed. Here is some sample imagery for tracks for sleep.

Infringement of or non-compliance with any of the above may result into rejection of tracks and courses, delay in publishing as well as temporarily or permanently being banned from using and uploading content on our platform.
