We strongly advise you to use this classification when submitting work to our gallery. In most cases the category in which you have submitted your photograph when uploading it on dA will be the only clue you'll need to get the folder right, so all you need to do is to take a look at the description underneath your photograph where it says which dA category it is in and then find that category on our list below.

Remember that photomanipulation goes into it's own separate folder, not the subject-based folders for regular photography. For more general rules and information check out our main page.

(We reserve ourselves the right to ask you to re-submit a photograph to a different folder even though the below classification placed it somewhere else in the rare case when the photo has already in the first place submitted to the wrong dA category and we decide another folder would be more suitable for it.)
