VALLARELLI, Andrelou Fralete Ayres. Criteria for submitting photos. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.2, pp. 212-214. ISSN 0365-0596.

Dermatological photography is used as a supplement to dermatological examination with the function of providing additional knowledge and information. Its quality depends on the expertise of the photographer-dermatologist in recording the relevant elements present. Therefore, the dermatologist should know basic principles of photography and the journal editors should ensure that the articles have high-quality images. This article suggests criteria to improve the quality of photographs submitted to journals for publication.
