How to mark areas correctly
Processing standard for Group would be: All people
Processing standard for Scene would be: without background objects
If your pictures are not completely clear which objects, persons or image areas are included in the exemption and which ones should be excluded, it may make sense to mark them in the image. This guide will show you how to do your best and will give you some examples in picture form.
This first: How do you mark areas in pictures? Please do not use texts. No matter in which language. Texts always have to be interpreted when it comes to pictures. A correct implementation is not sure. It is better to circle the areas with a colored line directly in the picture via the brush tool in Photoshop. Conversely, if something is to be excluded, which at first sight is important or otherwise would be included for other reasons, you can simply add a red cross. So it is immediately clear that this part of the picture is not desired.
And when do you use these markers? You could use a red cross, for example, to exclude an object in the hands of a person, which should later be replaced by a sign with a specific inscription. Immediately it is clear that the fingers and hands of the person are needed, which enclose the object. Likewise, it could be a picture on which 4 people are depicted, but of which you only need one particular person. A cross over each of the 3 other people makes it clear that they are not wanted. Of course, you can also upload such an image to the product "Alpha, 1 Person" because only 1 Person is released.
To circle around with a line would be useful, for example, if an object is included in an image, which in general is not immediately important to the image. Here the line around the complete subject would indicate that the seemingly unimportant object is nevertheless desired.
Basically we would like to say again, as it is in every product description, that in the case none marking the decision by the graphic artist working on the image. He will decide what he includes and what he does not, according to the average usual viewpoint and experience. A complaint is unfortunately not possible here. If in doubt, you can ensure the right result by marking the areas that are important to you.
