I like to take nice photos of organisms, but often have trouble deciding which photos are most helpful. Are there any guidelines as to how many photos / how high a resolution is appropriate for iNat observations?
The common sense advice is: try to include only photos that identify novel features, and try not to include higher resolution that image quality (focus / blur / distortion) support. But sometimes photos capture different combinations of features, and it’s difficult (esp. for unfamiliar taxa) to tell how much the fine-resolution is crucial.
Any advice? Would it make sense to add a flag for “redundant” or “over-resolution” photos, to help reduce serve load?
(Finally - if a photo is sourced to Flickr, do Flickr’s servers shoulder the burden, or is this equivalent to uploading from the desktop?)
