  • Images should be optimized for the web and its size should not exceed 100 kilobytes.
  • Images' dimensions should be approximately the same size as on the official site and never exceed 600 pixels in width.

  • GIF formats are only desirable in the rare case of an animated GIF picture.
  • BMP formats are never desirable.

"dest83232.png" is not meaningful. "Destiny_screenshot.png" is more meaningful.
