Community Guidelines - the rules that keep the community safe and enjoyable for everyone

Hello Recolorists! Please make sure that you have read our current community guidelines and follow them when posting content in the galleries:

Recolor Gallery is a community for coloring and art lovers from around the globe. The purpose of the gallery is to give you a space where you can display your colorings. Before posting something into the galleries, please ask yourself: “Am I sharing this because I want everyone to see how well I colored it?” If the reason you’re sharing the picture is something else, please reconsider if a coloring app is the correct place for that picture.

The following community guidelines are applied to any content that you share in Recolor galleries, such as images, comments, usernames, userpictures and profile descriptions. Inappropriate content will be removed and accounts that violate the guidelines gravely or continuously can be disabled.
