We have a list of 1,000 towns that we would like pictures for.
Each photo should be in LANDSCAPE format of a resolution of at least 500px. The picture should not be too big either, or it will be difficult to send me the files!
The photo should represent a main feature of the town. So e.g. for Paris, the Eiffel tower could be a good idea. For New York, the Statue of Liberty. For India, the Taj Mahal, etc... For smaller towns you will not know what the main feature is, so chose something which seems highly recogniseable, with vivid colours etc. For cities on the sea, this might be just a beautiful beach...
The photos should be available under public domain licences, or a creative commons licence which allows the photo to be edited and used for commercial purposes.
A good place to look for photos with a creative common licence of this type is e.g. [url removed, login to view] .
Creative commons licence 2.0 requires us to acknowledge the author of the photograph, so please keep track of the exact URL of where each photo was taken from in a spreadsheet, and send this along with the photos.
Save each photo with the exact name that is in the spreadsheet that I will give you, as a jpg. When you are done you can zip all the files and email the zip file to me.
With a good internet connection and method, you should be able to do a lot of photos per hour.
If we are both satisfied with the job, I might have another batch of photos to be done in the same way.
I am a travel enthusiast. I also surf Wikitravel, Flickr and Picasa regularly. I have a lot of travel experience with me and know the minutes of Creative Common License. I think I am the perfect man for this job
