What is the Gallery?
Part of being an artist is putting yourself out there, getting feedback and evening surviving a negative critique of your work.
While browsing the gallery you're encouraged to leave feedback on your peers images.

Common questions related to the gallery
Why are my gallery images darker after upload?
CG Cookie recommends uploading JPG file formats of your renders or photos to the gallery to have them shine their very best. 😎 They are smaller files and will hold more true to the original format while viewing online.
When you’re dealing with online photos and/or artwork. JPEGs offer you the most flexibility with raster editing and compression making them ideal for web images that need to be downloaded quickly. - 99designs.com

What is considered mature content on CG Cookie?
Mature content is defined as content that may not be suitable for some audiences, such as nudity, excessive violence, blood, and other mature themes. Controversial pieces related to ideologically sensitive materials may also fall under these restrictions.
In all cases CG Cookie reserves the right to remove these items if we deem it not appropriate for the community.
A good rule of them is keep it PG-13 or below. 👍
Marking your content as Mature
While creating your Gallery Project you have the option to check your content as Mature.
This will then add a Mature overlay to your projects thumbnail, making it unclickable to view the larger version of the Project, unless the member enables the viewing of Mature content.
Adjusting your Mature Settings across the site
Within your CG Cookie App Preferences, you have the ability to show all Mature Content. Default setting for this toggle is off.
