Reporting

+ When flagging a photo as abuse, keep in mind that fotoup is a community for people from around the world. Since everyone has varied opinions on what constitutes a pornographic image, please report only the images that violate these guidelines: 

  •  Images displayed on fotoup shouldn't contain full erotic nudity, profanity, or sexually graphic material. This currently includes, but is not limited to, erotic frontal nudity for men or women, as well as depictions of sex acts. Certain cartoons, medical or scientific pictures, or works of art may be exempt. 
  •  Don't upload photos of cartoons or artwork unless you have the rights to distribute such material. Likewise, don't upload images of celebrities to which you don't hold the rights. 
  •  We will remove all images that violate the law, such as child abuse.
