Keywords -- Irrelevant keywords were used or your keywords were not in English.

Uploaded 3 files 3 times, each time deleting keywords! There's only real English words left. Any ideas why? Previous files with almost identical keywords were accepted and this is driving me nuts! Being able to add a message to submissions like we used to would be so much simpler.

Ta.

We can't help you without seeing the picture, and a list of keywords.

Files now accepted. Keywords that were previously rejected...

country, dirty, faded, flag, identity, nationality, surface, aged, old, nation, symbol, weathered, brick, wall, brick wall, France, French, red, blue, white, France flag, French flag, wall flag,

You can probably imagine the unoriginal image.
Just wondered if phrases were the problem for certain reviewers.

Well, you know: France - it's a French word.  ::) :P

Its the constant repitition of the words Flag, France and French.

There's no need to do it.  No doubt SS picked it up as keyword spamming.

Thanks StC. I thought phrases were considered separately from single keywords, never intentionally spam.

No, that's the downside of their system. Like Alamy, words in a phrase get split up and then in search can merge with words from another phrase.
So if you have 'abc def' and 'zyx wvu', that will show up in searches for 'abc def', and 'zyx wvu', but also abc, def, zyz, wvu, which may or may not be relevant, and also 'abc zyx', 'def zyx', 'wvu abc' etc., which are often wrong.
The example I use for testing is Blue Whale. On SS, that brings up any whale or whale shark which also has blue in the keywords, e.g. blue sky, blue ocean ... as well as the inevitable spam and mistaken identifications.
And this curiosity (Yeah, I'm still automatically in Portuguese!) captioned "Man jumping in the water and hunting for fish" https://www.shutterstock.com/pt/image-photo/man-jumping-into-water-ocean-hunting-686936851?src=DyrxCnX2InTp5D7VgK5FKw-1-46 No man, no whale!
