“There is nothing arbitrary about TCQ.”

TCQ’s foundations are well established and universally respected:

— The 9 requirements for a photograph to qualify for the “Guaranteed TCQ” label

. . . match exactly the 9 characteristics of the most-widely trusted photographs in the world.

— Similarly, the only manipulations that are allowed in TCQ-qualified photographs

. . . match exactly the only manipulations that are “baked in” to billions of devices and cameras such that those manipulations either cannot be or usually are not turned off by users.

And finally, any judgment calls (“What is considered ‘misrepresentative’?”) are made using the standards of the world’s largest providers of trusted photographs.
