Thanks for applying to the project!
Please note: due to the Thanksgiving holiday, we may not send you your PIN and login instructions until Friday, 11/27.
This project is ending soon and you may be required to submit your photos by Friday evening 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST.
The instructions below will help you prepare your photos for quicker upload on Friday.
We're reviewing your application and we'll be in touch soon with project instructions.
In the meantime, please watch this short video. It will explain how the process works.
Here is a list you can use to make the process move quickly when it's time to upload your photos.
1 - Download the app (links below)
You'll use the free Appen Mobile Recorder app to complete the project. You can use it on either iOS or Android devices.
2 - Prepare your photos
All photos must be of the same person (the "Subject.")
Here are the photos you'll need of your Subject:
Age 0 - 2 years: At least 8 photos
Age 2 - 4 years: At least 7 photos
Age 4 - 10 year: At least 10 photos
At least 25 photos must pass the Quality Assurance review. So please aim to submit up to 40 photos, to allow for any rejections.
A few of those extra 15 photos can even be more recent photos, where the Subject was between 10 and 18.
3 - Tips for success
Finally, here are some pointers to make sure your photos pass Quality Assurance so you can get paid faster!
The head should occupy at least 30% of the full image. (So close-up photos are great... you may want to crop any photos that don't meet the 30% rule.)
Diversity in headwear is a nice (e.g. some with hats, eyeglasses, etc.)
Face should be clearly visible in all photos No Halloween masks, please!
We would like variety in the head pose (So you can have some that are frontal, 3/4 view, profile, looking up, looking down, etc.)
No timestamps, watermarks, filters, banners, or badges
If there are people in the photo besides your subject, remember the 30% face-size rule. So pictures of more than three total people probably won't work. And you need to have the permission of anyone else in the photo before you submit.
Finally, photos of photos are acceptable! So it's totally okay to pull those photos out of the box or album and take a picture of them. Better to do it in a well-lit room and NOT use your phone's flashbulb. Glare or shiny spots on the picture could cause it to be rejected.
It is also ok to take photos of photos from your computer screen... that make it very easy to get close-up cropped photos. Just make sure it's a quality photo and the Subject's face is very clear.
You can also take photos of photos from directly within the app.
OK, that's it for now. We'll be in touch very shortly with some more instructions, including your log-in info to get started with your uploads. That email will come from our project email address, ImageTechResearch@gmail.com.
Until then, if you have any questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get right back with you.
Thanks again for joining the project!
