Quoted Message: Scarrot, if you see a picture you would like to have an uncropped version, write to DT support, they will contact the photographer and he can upload the uncropped verrsion (if there is one) for you.
This is good to know! I will be sure to ask for uncropped images of pictures I like in the future. I didn't realize we had this as an option! Woot!

Quoted Message: It`s a good subject for discussion. Many different perspectives - reviewers and photographers trying to decide what the designers want and how to best present the material.
I'm new to the forum and I just posted a thread Book Cover Artists Struggling!!! detailing what I would love to see as a designer. I primarily design book covers for a romance eBook publisher, but also many self-published authors of various genres. It's a long post, but details a lot.
I see that this thread has answered some of my questions about my desire not to have images cropped and give us the full body of a subject. Since I was ignorant of that topic, I'm sure I may be ignorant of the other ones I brought up. Please be kind in your reminders about what I may have missed in stuff already posted in the forum. Thank you!
Otherwise, I do hope the post lets photographers know a little about what eBook and print cover designers are looking for. I thank you in advance for reading my post. It is my hope we can help each other. :D

You also have the option of asking the photographer directly by leaving a comment under the cropped photo that you want uncropped. On the image webpage you have to switch to the Tools tab (the right-hand tab) where you will find the text field for writing your comment, and the send button. :)
The photographer can then try to upload the non-cropped version or a similar (wider angle) photo, while asking for a priority review. If the uploaded picture is accepted (or not), the photographer can inform you by the same comments tool, and you will see the news in the Unread comments, which will be highlighted in red in the upper-right corner on your main profile.
Asking the contributor directly may speed up things for you, because you can discuss the image needed and what the photographer already has in his own stock or can shoot just for your needs.
Hope it helps :)
