If you are seeing patients remotely, provide these instructions to help them send you better quality photos
Steps to take a good photo
Step 1 • Find a Solid Background
Use a solid, neutral color in the background of your photo. A good option is a solid colored wall or table top.
Step 2 • Find Bright, Even Lighting
Avoid shadows and use light from all directions. Face a window and use light from the sun for best results. If not possible, turn on all indoor lights. DO NOT USE FLASH.
Step 3 • Hold Camera 12 inches (30 cm) Away
Face camera directly at skin condition and keep condition in the center of the frame.
Step 4 • Focus and Take a Photo
Tap the camera screen over the skin condition to be sure the camera is focused on your skin. Take a photo.
Step 5 • Take Another Photo 5 inches (12 cm) Away
Move the camera closer, tap the screen in the center to refocus, and take another photo. Check your photos and retake if needed.
