Photo Rules & Guidelines


  • 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 Upload Guidelines


 Straighten, centre, crop and zoom photos in order to properly frame the image.
When cropping keep the original aspect ratio


The target of the photo should be in the centre of the image.
High altitude aircraft photos will no longer be accepted as these do not usually look good in Plane Finder.


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
