How can you submit your digital data?

Per sftp.guj.de (preferred) or ftps.guj.de

You can deliver your images via SFTP. All you need is an FTP program such as Cyberduck, FileZilla or CuteFtp. Use the following access data: 

Welcome to the picture desk of stern Magazine’s publications

Please deliver your images in a folder that should be labeled with the name of the subject and the photographer and/or agency abbreviation. Folder and file names should consist of max. 30 characters, please without special characters such as ! " § $ % & / ( ) = ? ′ © ä ö or ü.

Our FTP server works like a mailbox: you can upload your images, but you have no access to check if your folder has been transferred. Please do not send us delivery notes, caption lists, Word-documents or PDFs via FTP. Also ZIP files will not be imported automatically from our database.

We-Transfer or Dropbox

We are also happy to accept your data via WeTransfer- or Dropbox-Download-Links. This is especially recommended for larger PDFs and image files.

E-mail

Stern picture desk’s main mail address is picturedesk@stern.de, to which all picture editors have access to. You can send us individual images or illustrations, documents, PDFs portfolios or written exposés at any time. However, please send us only small data.

The mail addresses of our staff always consist of "lastname.firstname@stern.de", e.g. Eucker.Andreas@stern.de. Attention: All personalized E-mail-addresses at stern editorial office are only accessible to the respective owner. If you want to make sure that your material is being screened, please send your message cc. to picturedesk@stern.de. The inbox for stern picture desk’s main mail address is being checked every day, corresponding mails are forwarded and edited.

Image quality and editing

Processing of the images is acceptable to limited extent. This includes adjustments of tonal value, brightness, contrast, or definition are certainly, to get the best results from your pictures. If we are not happy with your image processing, we will request a TIFF or RAW from you.

JPG, PDF, TIFF

In general, it is sufficient to provide us with only slightly compressed JPGs (Photoshop level 9-12). Especially if you have a lot of pictures or a slow internet connection, this might be the best way. TIFF files are of course always welcome, especially if we have already ordered print data (High-Res) from you. Please deliver RAWs upon request only.

Labeling

Your pictures must be labeled correctly. Please write the information about who, where, when, what, why in the corresponding IPTC fields.

Special Instructions
