1A. No screenshots or pics where the only focus is a screen. Images with unnecessary black margins will be assumed screenshots. Pictures of screens can be permitted, but must not be the only/primary aspect of the photo.
1B. No pictures with added/superimposed digital text, emojis, and «MS Paint»-like scribbles. «Photoshopped», or otherwise manipulated images are allowed. «Added text» is extended to all drawings, digital or by hand. (example: A hand drawn comic with text would be removed, whereas as a photo of a person holding a sign would be exempt).
Exceptions to this rule:
Text or other watermarks serving to credit the original author is allowed. It should be small and inconspicuous.
Blurring or boxing out of personal information (e.g. faces, license plates, phone numbers).
Examples of images which typically break this rule:
MS-Paint Scribbles or «NFL telestrator» style edits
No porn or gore. NSFW comment links must be tagged. Posting gratuitous materials may result in an immediate and permanent ban.
Porn — Artistic nudity is allowed, but anything focused on just showing the nudity is not. This is up to the discretion of the acting moderator. Pictures focused on nudity are better suited in /r/gonewild or /r/nsfw.
Gore — No pictures of anything showing excessive blood, or inside the flesh by any form of lacerations. This also includes any pictures resulting from acts of violence that we feel are not appropriate.
3. No personal information, in posts or comments. No direct links to any Social Media. No Missing/Found posts for people or property. Stalking, harassment, witch hunting, or doxxing will not be tolerated and will result in a ban. Reddit Policy
Personal information includes (but not limited to) names not in the public domain, in yearbooks, invoices, receipts, identifying account numbers, home addresses, or telephone numbers. If you see any of this please send a message to the moderators.
Social media — These links are not allowed, since they can possibly reveal personal information. If you post these URLs they will be removed. If you include these URLs on images, or Imgur comments, they will be removed as well.
Missing/Found persons and property — We know you mean well trying to help spread awareness of a missing person or return the property to its owners, but these posts tend to bring out reddit armchair detectives and can result in the release of personal information.
Stalking, harassment, witch hunting, or doxxing — This is a ban-able offense! Do not try to attack anyone or any business because you cannot agree or disagree. We’re not your personal army and we do not stand for it.
No subreddit-related meta-drama or witch-hunts.
4. Titles must follow all title guidelines.
8. No submissions featuring before-and-after depictions of personal health progress or achievement. Standalone images of medals, tokens, certificates, and awards are similarly disallowed, save for when the items are being presented as historical curiosities.
Title: It has been eight months since my last drink.
Post: Picture of a sobriety coin.

No soliciting sales, donations, crowd-funding, cyber begging, or posting cryptocurrency codes (QR or wallet).
Sales — We’re not a conduit to funnel users into your business. If you or someone you know has a hobby/craft/business that you want to share pictures then it’s fine. One top-level comment, per post, with the source site is okay, as long as it is not a «buy» page. Posting your site in any other comments may result in removing your post and temp ban. This also means you may not create multiple posts and spam your site in the comments. Keep your posts diversified and not just about said hobby/craft/business.
Donations, crowd-funding, cyber begging, or posting cryptocurrency codes — /r/pics is not the appropriate place to seek monies.
No posts soliciting votes directly or indirectly
Direct vote solicitation — Any mention of asking for votes, be up or down, is not tolerated.
Indirect vote solicitation — Includes creating posts titled so that your friend can see it, you spotted a redditor and you want him/her to see it on the front page, or anything similar is not allowed. Also includes the contents of images when they ask for votes, likes, thumbs, hearts, or anything on any social platform.
No indirect links or URL Shortners
Blogs, news articles, or editorials — Users come here to look at images not read about post/current events or someone’s personal daily account. Re-host the images and post them or post a direct link from their CDN — content delivery network — though this is not recommend as some CDNs do not allow hotlinking. You may give credit in comments, but keep it on one top-level comment and do not try to spam our comments.
Photography Sites pages are fine except when they host images with the option to purchase them, then they are not allowed.
URL Shortners — We do not allow any URL shortners.
Host with excessive ads — If our users have to see an image covered in ads then it’s not a host we want. If you see anything like this please let us know.
No serial reposting
Reposts and cross posts are allowed, but deliberately posting reposts only takes away from users trying to contribute new content. We’ve implemented this rule to try to keep the new queue fresh with new content and often times spam accounts generate karma to legitimize their accounts. This is a case-by-case decision based on your history so use www.karmadecay.com before you post.
Note:* There have been many instances of people creating multiple posts of the same photograph series. IF they are from the same series, create one album, and post the album. Flooding the new queue will result in action being taken.
All reddit wide rules apply to /r/pics
