SL does not really allow for taking snapshots in portrait mode....so we will have to crop images before submitting if we are to follow the rules stated.....is this acceptable?

Hi Pier: Is there any specific size for the portrait pictures?

@MillaKat yes sure you can edit/crop the snapshots

@Vero1324  nope, there's no any specific size. Just keep it in the portrait mode, to fit with the guidelines
