2. Captions Each digital image should include an accurate caption describing the subject of the photograph. We do not have the means of checking the accuracy of captions and photographers are reminded that errors in captions lead to lost sales. All pictures of British landscapes must have the county as part of the caption as these may be used for regional calendars which are planned on a county basis. All digital image files should be named with a unique reference number or code at the beginning of the file name.

3. Formats Carousel retain the right to crop any image as may be necessary to suit a particular format of publication and to edit digitally if we believe that it is necessary (for example sharpening or ‘cleaning’). Carousel will not make any significant digital manipulations to digital images without the prior permission of the photographer.
