Why was my image denied?

America First Credit Union reserves the right to reject any picture we believe violates the Visa® Image Guidelines. If one is rejected, you will be notified by email within two business days. You may submit a new image at any time following this notification.

What are the image guidelines?

We reserve the right to determine whether an image will be used. All images must have the consent of the owner, including photos downloaded from the internet. The following are examples of prohibited items in the foreground or background:

  • Material that could infringe on the copyright or trademark rights of another party, such as branded products. This includes abbreviations, acronyms, logos, or related symbols.
  • Images that could be perceived as violent, including hatred or cruelty to humans or animals, profanity, or obscenities.
  • People conducting or involving themselves in criminal or illegal activities, including gambling.
  • Images/content demonstrating the views of anti-social, political, or religious groups.
  • Libelous, defamatory, sexually explicit, or other content we deem offensive, including discrimination, hate speech, or socially unacceptable groups (such as gangs).
  • Any references to the Olympic Games or Olympic events.
  • Commercial solicitation or promotional material.
  • Celebrities such as actors, musicians, athletes, or cartoons. Exceptions to this prohibition include permission-based photos of you, your family members, or friends photographed with a famous person.
  • Use of addresses, phone numbers, personalized identification numbers, and URL addresses.
  • Provocative or derogatory photos or images of a sexual content.
  • Naked or semi-naked images of adults or children.
  • Racial/prejudicial or discriminatory subject matter.

Please note: If you repeatedly submit images that do not follow the above guidelines, America First Credit Union reserves the right to exclude you from future Picture Perfect use.

  • Files can be in .jpg, .jpeg or .bmp formats.
  • They must be at least 50KB in size, but not exceeding 3MB, and be at least 640X480 pixels. For best results, use larger images with higher resolution.

  • Small pictures will reproduce poorly.
  • If you excessively increase the scale of your image, it may also reproduce poorly.
  • The time your picture takes to upload depends on your internet connection speed.
