Please follow the instructions below carefully. Any mugshots
that do not conform to the guidelines will not be used. Make
sure to read the F.A.Q to your right if you are unsure of
anything to do with submitting your mug.
STEP 2: Place your image
under the Border layer and position it accordingly. Your image
must be a recent photo showing the majority of your face.
WARNING: DO NOT
add any design elements to your image. This includes typography,
filters, colour changes and any other graphic element. Your
Mugshot will not be used if any graphics are added. Please
see the Mugshot F.A.Q to your right for more info on this.
STEP 3: Save your image as
a JPG file at aprroximately
60% quality. Make sure it is no bigger than 30k in file size.
STEP 4: Name the file with
your first and last names. Eg. bob_smith.jpg. Please make
sure to name the file in this way as we do not want to receive
100 mugshots called mugshot.jpg or similar as it makes identifying
them very difficult.
WARNING: DO NOT send your mugshot more than once. If you send
it more than once it will be deleted and will not be added
to the site.
Please make sure
to optimise your image. It should be no bigger than 30k in
STEP 5: Email it to . Please make sure to include your
full name and URL (if you have one).
STEP 6: Sit back, relax and
check the site every now and then to see if your mug is up.
We have a lot to add so it may take a little while but it
will get there eventually :)
Q: I sent my Mugshot ages ago, why
hasn't it been posted?
A: We have received a huge amount of mugshots over the last
6mths or so. There are over 500 waiting to be posted and we
receive more every day. Therefore it will take a little time
for your mug to be added. However now that the section is
all database driven we will be able to add them much quicker.
Please do not send your Mugshot more than once as this will
just delay it being added.
Q: How often do you update Mugshots?
A: We try and update Mugshots whenever we have some spare
time. This could mean once a day or once a week depending
on how busy we are at the time. Now that it is much easier
to update via the database we will be updating more frequently.
We will now update as many mugs as we can at the time (this
could mean 1 to 1000), not the usual page worth (24) that
we used to do.
Q: Why can't I put graphics on my
A: Mugshots is a section set up to see the face behind the
designs. It is not a section for you to show off your graphic
skills. We want to see your face in all its glory, not hidden
behind graphics or text. Therefore we do not accept any mugshots
Q: There are Mugshots on the site
that have graphics on them, why are they allowed?
A: When we first started Mugshots we were not quite so strict
about this rule and let people slip by. The large volume of
mugs coming in also made it difficult for us to contact people
about it. However we have since become more strict with this
rule and will not accept mugs that have graphics on them any
Q: Can I send a cartoon image of
me? Or a photo of when I was a baby?
A: No. Your mugshot must be a photo of yourself showing the
majority of your face and must be fairly recent. Your mug
will not be used if we cannot see your face properly.
Q: What's this Mood thing about?
A: The Mood sorting element of Mugshots is not to be taken
too seriously. We feel that it adds an extra fun and interesting
way to categorise and sort the mugs. The Mood chosen for each
person is not meant to be a statement on their personality,
it is simply chosen to match the look they have in their image.
If you do not like the Mood chosen for your image please feel
free to email
us and tell us why.
Q: Can I change my mugshot/URL once
it is posted?
A: Yes you can. Simply email the new URL or mugshot (making
sure to use the template to your left) and include your name
and details so we can find your current mug. Make sure to
let us know clearly that you are changing your current mug
so that we do not think it is a new one.
Q: Can I send a naked shot of myself?
A: If you don't mind thousands of people seeing you naked
then go right ahead. We're not shy. But remember, it has to
conform to the rules above and no hardcore Porn please.
