If you have altered an image digitally then we ask for you to check “yes” under the field for that individual image you’ve altered. You also have an opportunity to write in a few words about what you did to the image. We generally do not consider levels, saturation, contrast and sharpening to be DM unless extreme.
We leave it up to you whether or not you go beyond this, however if an editorial client asks for a RAW file as verification of authenticity and it does not match up, we will not only lose the sale but also remove the image from our archive for failure to accurately keep this info up to date. If you have questions about what DM might be, we are always open to discuss this with you so give us a call.
