Dermatologic Photography Tips: Take Great Publishable Images

Arch Dermatol. 2011;147(4):425. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2011.78

Tip: Obtain proper written consent to publish the image if any patient identifiable information is in the picture, such as a unique tattoo. If in doubt, obtain consent. Consent forms are available at http://www.archdermatol.com.1 Use of black bars over the eyes of a patient is not acceptable to mask the identity of a patient.2
