“cross-processing” color effects

Cross-processing effects are used to render colors differently than they way they appeared in the scene that was photographed.

The result is disqualified by Q7 unless the colors are changed to meet rinairs for non-misrepresentation.

If the initial recording or processing of any photograph results in tones or colors that are so misrepresentative that the photograph cannot be adjusted to meet rinairs, the photograph is considered TCQ-ineligible and cannot qualify for the “Guaranteed TCQ” label regardless of how it is presented.

No one can have it both ways, having their photos looking different but being treated the same.
