We do not publish deceptive photos or other visuals. Our photographs are not altered in any material way, including blurring or eliminating backgrounds; removing “red eye”; significantly altering density, contrast, color balance, or saturation levels; and hiding the faces of adults.
We may remove dust and scratches from digital images, crop photos, or turn color images into grayscale. We may blur or pixelate nudity if it is acknowledged in a caption.
We do not publish staged, posed, or re-enacted photos that illustrate news events. We may publish fashion photography, portraits, or other pre-arranged group photos if the images’ captions clearly explain the circumstances.
