Photo Rules


  • All uploaded images must be your own work.
  • Photos shared with us will be shown in Plane Finder and Ship Finder products.
  • For ships please include the vessel MMSI in the tag, name or description. For planes we need the aircraft registration number/tail number.

Photo Quality

  • The target of the photo should be in the centre of the image.
  • Straighten, centre, crop and zoom photos in order to properly frame the image. When cropping keep the original aspect ratio.
  • Portrait format photos will not normally be approved as these do not work in our apps or websites.
  • Please do not upload multiple similar images of the same aircraft/ship.
  • High altitude aircraft photos will no longer be accepted as these do not usually look good in Plane Finder.
