Now that I see some accounts have been blocked on Fotolia for too many similars, I guess I have questions about what is too similar?

If you photograph food, must the plates/glasses etc be different all the time even if the food is different?
If you photograph particular animals a lot?  As a photographer this is what interests me..  so some are different seasons, usually different because I get bored if I feel I am just doing the same image. 
If you photograph sports (animals), is it enough to have different dogs or if the same animal, different sports/equipment?
Etc etc.... 

I wish I could look at my entire portfolio there with a putting that had bigger images-- I am getting near-sighted as well as horribly near-sighted and it is almost impossible for me to see what is already there by looking at these tiny images under my files.

I generally use my own boredom as a rule but like this site because I feel like the images that get accepted and that sell there are closer to what I want to do as an artist than some of the other websites where I feel like I have to fit into their look....so want to avoid trouble while continuing to photograph what I really love to photograph.  Don't want to mess that up.

Not for similars, but identical images.

They also recommend keeping images that are the same but processed differently (so look different) to approx 3 I think.
