Good preparation is half the pie! Do you need an explanation about markers first? You can find it here.


A good picture for a marker (or aka image-based target) has high contrast areas and maybe also irregularities in the picture. Not more than 2MB in size. You can use the quality check in heijar`s CMS to make sure that your picture is suitable for a marker (5 star rating).
