I just received a rejection from Dreamstime requesting I remove the text (on a white BG) from several images I had newly uploaded.  Is this a new requirement at DT?  I have several images already up and selling that include text on a white BG.  I don't follow the DT forums and didn't see any e-mail to this effect.  I know GL doesn't accept these, but this is the first time I've bumped into it on DT.

I had the same rejection last week.  Don't know if it's a new one though, because this was the first time I included text.

As I said in another thread, it's a moveable feast on DT lately - you roll the dice and depending on what reviewer you get you will have a different outcome...

That has been my experience as well.

"I just received a rejection from Dreamstime requesting I remove the text (on a white BG) from several images..."

The DT reviewers seem to now be injecting their own strange opinions into the review process. I recently had a vector image rejected because it wasn't 'tileable'. That is, it wasn't usable as a pattern.
1. It wasn't intended to be a pattern.
2. Approximately 99.9% of the images on DT are not tileable, and yet were accepted.
3. It was accepted by every other stock agency.

I doubt if 'no text in an image' is a new DT policy (I certainly hope not). It is probably just another example of DT's decline in reviewer quality. They need to fix that.

Just for fun and to see if there indeed may be a new policy in effect,  I submitted three more images to DT with text in the white background.  Basically the same as the previously rejected images except I used different accent pieces and arranged them somewhat differently on the white field.  Went straight through without a problem.  Apparently some reviewers are taking matters into their own hands and are accepting/rejecting as they see fit.

May be positive or negative for us.  I don't really know.  All we usually hear about are the negative consequences.  It could be positive as we may be getting some through because a reviewer knows better than to blindly follow some strange direction form HQ.

I clicked the wrong forum by accident and usually won't post on DT or FT (self imposed ban). But this is a perfect example of typical microstock kindergarten rules and reviews. They make them and change them and some play by the rules, sometimes, they forget and make their own versions. Commissions change, levels change, pictures are changed to free or removed on a whim, reviewers don't even know their own regulations. But one thing is for sure. There's no consistency. LOL  :D

Exactly.  I just saw a guy with brand new uploads of 9 accepted images of a body builder, same images just slightly different angles.  Where is the too similars rejection? They have selective acceptance and very inconsistent acceptance criteria.
