Submit an Image
We are always looking to expand our collection of images of psychoactive plants and drugs, medicinal herbs, pharmaceuticals, and paraphernalia. If you have photographs, scans, or drawings you think we'd be interested in publishing, we'd love to have you submit them. Please do not use this form to submit images which you do not own and have simply copied from elsewhere on the net or in print.

Good image submissions should:
  • Be in focus
  • Be at least 72 dpi and 600 pixels tall or wide. Higher resolution (larger) is better. (Maximum of 50 MB per upload)
  • Be clearly identified in each description field
  • Have attention payed to background and layout. Try to avoid photographing in front of table clutter. Make sure the photo is well lit.
  • Also, see this Ask Erowid question about how to take good archive pictures
The more photos we already have of a particular item, the more likely we are to reject poor quality submissions. Because of the volume of submissions we receive it may take some time for us to get to yours. Only a portion of submitted images will be selected for publication on Erowid.
