Why are my photos at iStockphoto.com removed?
I registered at iStockphoto last summer, and it was a frustrating process. First of all, I need to send photos that confirm my skills. It was not as demanding as I expected, so very soon I was welcome to submit photos to the stock gallery.
Next level was more demanding. My photos were rejected, one after another. For reasons I did not predicted. My submissions are actually thoroughly examined, by a human being, following strict rules. Humans can not be recognized, unless they have given their approval. So, if there are a slight chance of recognition, I need approval form.
When it comes to objects that are easily recognized as brand products, they will be rejected. At least when they are the main object of the picture.
So, at the moment most submissions have been rejected. Accepted submissions can be viewed at my stock portfolio at iStockphoto.
And more will be submitted!
