So Fotolia finally updated their laundry list of rejections to something equally useless. Why bother?

On every rejection you now get this email;

Composition
The scene must clearly illustrate the intended subject or theme and be free of any distracting elements (eg., shadows, grey sky, unrelated items).

Originality & Quality
The subject of your photo should be unique to the Fotolia database, or be of higher quality. For example, fauna or flora images must have added value (very high quality, definition, keywording) to be accepted, because thousands of images are already online for this category.

Background Quality
The background was not coherent with the subject matter, or lacked aesthetic quality.

Isolation quality
For isolated files, please verify the outline quality at 100% zoom.

Funny, I have submitted unique images, zero in the database, rejected, even with note to the editor.

And why tell someone about isolation when the image is of a working woman in a gallery?

Ah well, no significant changes there then!

Must say, I' ve just had 7/7 'confirmed' at FT. 'Non-confirms' at FT don't bother me too much. When they come in the mail, I sent 'em straight to the bin without looking!
