I have some photographs of buses. What should I do to add them to bus-photo.net?

First, you need to be registered as a user and match your photographs with our rules and requirements. If you believe that these are met, upload your photographs to bus-photo.net. We shall do the rest!


What kind of photographs may I upload to bus-photo.net?

  • You must own the copyright of the photographs submitted. Possessing the copyright means that you have taken the picture yourself. By uploading your photographs to bus-photo.net you remain in the possession of all copyrights and we respect your rights! Should we discover that one or more of your photographs belong to someone else, we shall delete all your uploaded photographs from our database and ban all your future uploads.
  • Photographs taken need to feature the entire bus. It means that a bus should not be concealed by anything (e.g. tree, traffic lights, people, etc.). Any photographs featuring only vehicle parts are not allowed, unless reasons to show these particular parts are justified.
  • We also reject photographs of low aesthetic quality or featuring a bus far in the distance.
  • Photographs featuring window reflections, blurred, badly focused and poorly designed are not accepted.
  • Please note that shadows often spoil photographs and may be a cause for rejection.
  • Be careful when using camera flash. Photographs, where flash is reflected on vehicle licence plate, will be rejected.
  • We are not able to accept photographs showing people that could be easily recognised, e.g. bus driver, passengers or pedestrians.
  • No added symbols (e.g. date or signature) must be present on the photographs.

You are free to use photograph editing software to improve the quality of your picture, if necessary.

Why there are photographs in the database that do not match your own rules?

Yes, there is a number of photographs that do not match current rules, however they matched the rules in place at the time of upload. We intend to keep those photographs, however they may be replaced by better quality pictures of the same vehicle, if they are supplied.
