Adding an image to Brightspot

When you add images to Brightspot, you and other editors can use those images in articles, blog posts, or galleries. For example, if you shot a stunning image of a solar eclipse, you can add it to Brightspot so that other editors, writing articles about astronomy, can use that image.
