I went to the submission area and started to populate my area. The rules 
state the png or jpg are acceptable however when I try to upload full view 
image in png form it rejects it. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, this is due to an internal communication problem.  The rules have
been corrected to only allow JPEG images.  I apologize for any inconvenience
this has caused!

  I wonder if it would be a good idea to add something in the lines of
requiring the quality of the image not having been destroyed too much
by the JPEG compression.
  I know that it's only foolish to submit an image which would be
otherwise excellent but shows bad JPEG artifacts, but it may still
be a good idea to add a reminder that the submitter should be careful
with this and not just accept whatever default compression whichever
program he is using offers him, but should fine-tune it so that the
image shows no visible JPEG artifacts (while still being as small
as possible; that is, the submitter should try to find the compression
setting that gives the best quality/size ratio).

That should be a obvious responsibility of the author.  All programs that
create JPGE files ask for quality settings, so it should be very clear that
authors check their quality settings before they submit an image.  It is
easy to try out after all.

Except for Microsoft Paint. Thankfully, most people making images with
POV-Ray probably know how to save a jpeg half decently... but there are
always exceptions.
