When I have an image that can be used both in horizontal and vertical, I upload the two choices.  Here is an example:



Funny thing is that in StockXpert I got 2 sales for each image, but the first image had 41 views and the second one... just 2!  2 views and 2 sales!

Adelaide

I like the vertical shot much better than the horizontal one, which somehow seems "off balance" to me.

Nice colours, by the way - I love that little stab of powder blue!

My understanding is that sites frown against something like this, since the two images are identical (except one is rotated 90 degrees).

Stockmaniac,

I once had such a rejection (hmm, where was that, IS or DT) and after explaining that the image was usable in both positions and a buyer could be searching for a specific one (I believe all search tools allow you to search only vertical or only horizontal - not that it works in FT!), they reversed the rejection.

Sharply_done,

I didn't understand your remark "I love that little stab of powder blue!"

Adelaide

I agree with Sharply, the portrait angle definitely has more impact - likely easier for our brains to identify the numbers when they are upright.  Sharply must mean the blue 20's - are those Euros?

Pixart,

Yes, those are Euros.  There is also a 50 below them.

You must be rich to have that much cash lying around  ;D.  I went to buy the kids a slurpee today and didn't even have any change in my wallet! :'(  To be fair - the tooth fairy was a little short last night, and in a panic my husband pointed her to my wallet... I knew I had 5 bucks in coins in there last night!

It's always useful to have banknotes for a trip.  :)

It just came to my mind, that you can scan the banknotes and print a suitcase full of them. With that you can do lots of interesting images which might be in demand. You just need a lot of printer ink :) If I have time I will think I will do some of those images..

I think if you scan US currency and try to print it out then it will not let you. Sure I read this somewhere but can't for the life of me remember where now.

yep.. i have tried it.  I tried printing a detail image of a dollar and got a warning sign from photoshop that it is illegal to print currency :)

- there was a thread on dpchallenge about it once.

I think some colour laser copiers have this technology built in - it will not copy if it detects currency. Also, the older copiers put the machine serial number in the yellow pass (CMYK) so small the human eye cannot see. So the police can always trace the copy back to the original machine.

As for the original post...at first I thought these were two different images (I prefer the vertical). I did not know you were allowed to submit the same image vertical and horizontal?! Does anyone else do this?
