>What is minimalism?
Minimalism involves taking images and reducing them down to basic colors and removing most features. Most wallpapers will not include shadowing or faces, but this is subjective.

>Requesters
1) Refrain from posting images with incredibly intricate designs, vague or conflicting colors, or undefined edges, these make minimalizing very difficult.
2) If you can, provide the name and/or source for archival purposes.
3) Be patient and make sure to thank the artist!
4) Check if your image hasn't already been done before in the booru: http://min.booru.org/

>Artists
1) Always upload at least 1080p PNGs, try and post transparents too.
2) Look over other people's works! We need good criticism if we want to improve!
3) Watermarks/signatures are not highly necessary.

Use vector drawing: either Inkscape (free) or Illustrator (free if you know what I mean) (don't use raster graphics: Photoshop, GIMP, etc.)
