No, now it's not DT...

I'm thinking, when will these agencies close their uploads due to the fact that everything has been uploaded and they no longer want to accept new submissions of the existing topics...

I'm experiencing these rejection reasons on (seamless) textures and backgrounds. I have no problems selling these at other agencies.

Examples include:

http://www.shutterstock.com/pic-152405480/stock-photo-seamless-grey-rough-wall-texture.html?src=BBaRKvNWwfl6vJTzp89E1g-1-22

etc.

Shutterstock is becoming pickier these days. I no longer bother with textures with them because of those rejections.

My bad. I saw his links and forgot about CanStockPhoto. I don't sell much there to care but is CanStockPhoto really so good that they can start turning away works that clearly have marketability? I've bought a few textures similar to the OP in the past when working on video slide shows. One was similar to the OPs wood texture he linked to.

Yeah, forgot to mention CanStockPhoto in the post - sorry about that...

File is too similar to other content that we already have online  -> Canstock uses that rejection reason at random, while other files with simular images are accepted. Canstock is not the only one, Fotolia does it all the time.

With Canstock I don't know, but with Fotolia if you resubmit some day later generally it passes (it just depends what robot will review your image)

That's a good one! Two weeks ago I submitted 60 files, 45 of then were OK. One week later I submitted another 50. Same content, topics etc, just slightkly different and almost all of them had technical problems or qualiry issues all of a sudden. Another nice one: they do not specify WHAT problems or issues they have found!
