Must-read: many people often ask if this website is dedicated only to "designer" bags or if I only publish photos of "designer" bags.
The answer is NO.
I'm a 100% equal opportunity lover and the label of your handbag doesn't matter. Whether it's made in China, Italy, France or bloody Ethiopia, I do not discriminate.
Before you submit a photo to InsideMyBag.com, kindly read the policies below.
Photo Use Policy
By submitting a photo to InsideMyBag.com, you hereby grant me, Bryanboy, unlimited and full rights to do whatever as I please to your photo submission, including, but not limited to, photo cropping, photo resizing, photo editing, press & media exposure (digital/online/print/etc.) and last but not the least, use for promotional and marketing purposes on this web site (InsideMyBag.com) and any other web sites that I own, operate and/or manage.
I value everyone's privacy so by default, I will NEVER publish your full name, email address, telephone numbers and/or any other personal information on this web site (InsideMyBag.com) or any other web sites that I own, operate and/or manage UNLESS I have obtained prior permission to do so.
This is purely optional and you don't have to do this but if you would like me to credit a particular submission, please include the name and/or nickname you want me to use. You may also include your website URL if you have one.
I guarantee you 100% that I will NEVER, under any circumstances, publish, share, sell or resell, whether directly or indirectly, your personal information such as your name, email address, telephone numbers and such, to any other individual, company or third party UNLESS I have your direct permission to do so.
Honesty & Integrity
It's human nature to have that desperate AND gagging need to impress others -- trust me, I get that "feeling" all the friggin time and I'm honestly not joking! However, one thing I've learned is that there will always someone out there who is better, bigger and WEALTHIER! On that note, please, please, please keep try to be as honest as possible and try not to edit your submissions. YOU know it's soo easy (and tempting) to stage something but let's face it -- we're not fooling anybody other than ourselves. Someone for instance submitted a photo of what's inside his/her tiny clutchbag no bigger than an infant's fist yet the sheer amount of items s/he submitted along with it required a forklift to carry.
The whole point of this website is to represent you, your personality, your lifestyle and your life, via your bag and its contents.
With all of that being said, here are some general guidelines I'd like you to follow. You DON'T have to follow them religiously -- I'm quite flexible -- but I'd really appreciate it if you DO take note of them. You'll save me lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of time if you do. As much as I'm extremely passionate on the work I do on this website, I'm still a one-man circus. If you can get Santa Claus to fedex me an elf who is willing to help me out for FREE (no-strings attached) then let me know. Otherwise...
1) Try to keep your file sizes to a maximum of 200-300kb (kilobytes) each photo.
2) If possible, try to avoid sending high-resolution images. Not only they take forever to download on a third world "high speed" internet connection (I'm not kidding!), I have to manually resize, crop, upload, etc each and every photo that I receive.
3) If you know how to resize your pics, please resize them to a maximum of 450 pixels wide. There is no maximum as far as height is considered.
4) Last but not the least, please limit your submissions to photos ONLY. There is no need to identify the contents.
I'll give you a kiss on the cheek and an oreo cookie if you follow those guidelines above. *wink*
Now... if any (or all) of that sounds wayyy too techie for you, I say "fuck it" and just email me with what you have. I'll just deal with it on my own. LOL.
Enough whinging. All I want is a bloody photo of what's inside your handbag and here I am asking for your first born child!
You may email your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions? Send me a note. I'll try to respond whenever I can. Thank you, thank you, thank YOU from the bottom of my heart.
