Detailed Condition Shorthand
Here is some common shorthand you can use to describe some of the damage if you wish. It is not a complete list, but you may find it handy. For example:
TRO-DE BLO-LS indicates there is a dog ear on the top right and a light stain (mostly not noticable) in the bottom left. Both defects occur outside the image area and can be framed out.
