First of all - You are so good at taking photos. Really! We get so many nice photos every hour and every day, and many times we would like to accept them even if we don’t. Rejecting your photo does not mean that we don’t like it. We are focusing on commercial photos and are trying to find the right mix for our customers.
Filters and frames
We don’t accept photos with frames and filters except when it’s filters that gives the photo more contrast or sharper colours. (No vintage filters and frames though) The reason of why we don’t accept for example Instagram filters is that the buyers can’t use those photos.
If the whole photo is blurry or if we think that the sharpness is to poor or in the “wrong” place we will reject it.
We want the photo to be at least 1000 px in heigth or length.
Porn, war, drugs fighting, sex, weapons etc...
If we have too many of a kind we may reject your photo. This is unusual though.
We don’t think there is a buyer
Some photos are nice, sharp and with good composition but can be difficult to sell anyway. If we think so we will reject it.
“Too dark” means that we think that the whole photo or that part of it is too dark. It may also be when you can’t see the face because of shadow for example.
We think that the composition of the photo is important and could reject a photo if we think that it’s not good enough.
Messy/ Vague purpose
Some photos feels messy or has a vague purpose. If so, we reject it.
We reject photos that are overexposed, sometimes even if just part of it is. We often reject photos that are taken through a window since it’s reflective.
