The new guidelines on image submission seem very sensible, and are a welcome improvement on previous advice. The only omission seems to be any mention of the degree of compression which should be applied to the jpgs.

The level of  jpg compression (or 'Quality') can be set in the camera menu, and should normally be set to the highest qualty setting at the chosen pixel size. However, there are usually only two or three preset quality options available for in-camera processing.

More flexibility is at hand if you are using photo software such as Lightroom, which allows for the quality to be set at anywhere between 0 and 100% when exporting from Raw to jpg. My personal preference is to set the quality slider to 100% for images offered for sale.

All of the variations have to fit within the current maximum upload size of 8 MB, but if in doubt, I think minimum compression is more desirable than a huge pixel count.
