*Photo Guidelines

When your photo is uploaded, there will be a notice that your photo is “in review” by our system. After processing, the system will signify the status of the photo:

  • Approved: Image passed system criteria

  • In Review: Image is currently in system processing

  • Rejected: Image did not pass system criteria

The system checks images based on these criteria:

  • Size/resolution: Images must be at least 200×200 pixels.
  • Content: All images except for the logo should be photos of food. Photos of coupons, weekly specials, or restaurant interior/exterior are not accepted.
  • Text/phone number: Images shouldn’t have text or words on them, including the name of the dish, coupons, or special deal information. Logos cannot have the restaurant phone number included.
  • Safe search: Images cannot contain images flagged for adult content, violence, or medical (i.e. gore/blood).
  • Copyright: Images must not return matching URLs from reverse Google image search.

If you believe a photo was rejected in error, contact Restaurant Care at 877-799-0790 or [email protected]
