How to Add Your Picture or QSL Card to the QRZ.COM database

QRZ is pleased to accept your digital QSL photo or card to add to our online database. Your picture will appear on our http://www.qrz.com website and possibly on a future edition of the QRZ Ham Radio CDROM.

DX (non-USA) Stations Please Note:
Your callsign must be listed in the QRZ Database before you send us your picture. If your callsign is not listed, you must first go to our update page and add your information. We cannot copy this information from your card image.

File Format
Our website production team uses Adobe Photoshop to process all incoming images. We can accept most common file formats including .BMP, .TIF, .GIF, .PCX etc. The final published image will be in .JPG format and if necessary, we will convert the image that we receive from you into .JPG format.

Image Size
Our standard picture image is 400 pixels wide and 300 pixels high (400x300). Vertical (portrait) images may be a maximum of 300 pixels wide and 350 pixels high (300x350). Don't worry if you don't know how to adjust the size of your picture - we review and adjust all image sizes anyway. One important exception is the size of the image file. Our server will not accept picture uploads that are larger than 500kb.

Sending Us Your Image
Go to our update page and you will find a menu where you can upload your picture online.

We can also accept your image via FTP at: ftp.qrz.com

FTP Upload Notes
If you are using FTP note that there is no need to email us once you have successfully uploaded your picture.

Image Name (FTP Users Take Note!)
We require that all image files be named properly. The file name must be the same as the callsign that the picture is for. Suppose your callsign is W1ABC. Your image file name must then be W1ABC.JPG. Whether it's .GIF or .JPG, or .BMP doesn't matter, as long as the first part of the name is W1ABC (or your callsign).

Hard Copy Photos and Cards
Unfortunately, as of September 1, 1999 we no longer accept hard copy photos, cards or floppy disks sent to us by postal mail. It was taking way too long to process these (some folks had to wait up to 6 months) and so we decided it was better not do disappoint people by asking them to wait so long. The good news is that PC desktop photo scanners are really getting cheap now (less than $100) and lots of people have them.

Legal Stuff: By submitting your photo or QSL card or image to QRZ you explicitly waive any and all copyrights, compensation and/or royalties to the use of the image. You also give QRZ and Walnut Creek CDROM complete permission to reproduce the image, in whole or in part, any number of times in any media.
