Hi all,

Last week I got an invitation to submit my images to moodboard....
So I did send them about 400+ images (ftp) I submitted only 50, most of them got this notification resubmit at 300dpi.
The fun part I always as far as I know saved every image on 300dpi.....
Also rejection reason for keywording (they are pickier as I stock)????

I deleted today al my images it's to hard to edit (to much work to go through 400+images editing)

Is this site evolving in the future and is it worth to go through this editing stuff or should I leave the site for what it is......
Has some one experience with this site ???? good or bad.....

Kate of Support is really excellent. But yes, agree that editing is cumbersome. Also you must have it in 300dpi and your images have to be large.
Only one thing that bothers me -  no photographer's credit .

btw, do they now have  watermark?

I sent 10 test images - all rejected because they weren't at 300 dpi... I rolled my eyes and left. 

I like the look and feel of their site and feel like they could do well, but they have made things over complicated.

Exactly the same here. Very slow editing, those funny not-300dpi rejections. Then I got a rejection where they said the image in not the kind they need... that particular one was one of my bestsellers, sold over 5k times. :)
After a lot of time and effort I managed to have one or two images online on moodboard. Great advance! I have like 6k left... uhh, no way! They look like a good agency but they seem to be in very early alpha state and my time is limited. If wish they would accept DVD submissions.

 I can't delete the my only 2 straight away approved images.....LOL
rest all rejected for not saved at 300dpi (In a strange way the were all saved at 240dpi) and on some I must edit some keywords.
The rest I did removed last night it's taking to long and to much time to edit.....
I just asked them to remove my account but even the contact form will not co-operate.....

Last update:
I just had some e-mail contact with Kate (very nice and helpful)
I let my two accepted up.
And she will let us know when the upload/editing system will be much more efficient.
Thanks Kate...
Hope it will be soon.

I just tried to upload 10 images to moodboard.

-They were quickly reviewed.

-I got 6 accepted directly, and 4 got in a queue because of lacking releases. They seem to be very strict about releases, images that has hands in them (just regular hands, nothing spectacular) need releases. They also needed release on a (imho unrecognizable) building that is burning. That's kind of funny to get a release for something that doesn't exist anymore :)

-I didn't find their upload system THAT cumbersome. It's more difficult than most, but it's no iStock. Of course I would prefer a system with almost no clicks needed.

-I'm going to upload my best images and my best selling images so that I have 100 images online. Then I'll just wait and see if any sales start rollin' in :)

Never heard of them...how long have they been around?
Sounds like alot of work to just get images on there.....I guess the main question is...do they sell???

I was accepted a couple of weeks ago but I'm not sure yet when to upload. If their upload system is faster than iStock, then it's fast enough. I don't have any problems with the iStock system upload using Deepmeta.

From their "about" page:

Quote
moodboard is the brainchild of Mike Watson, creator of award winning Royalty Free Agency Digital Vision, sold in 2005 to Getty Images for $165 million

But their micro offering isn't that old.

I'm interested if anyone has tried to mark any images "exclusive" ?
(that might get the image to the higher prices and/or distribution schemes)

Those of you that are on there...do your images sell that often if at all???

Submitted 600 images...50% acceptance...no sales yet, find their upload and submit process very time consuming and have stopped uploading until I see if sales happen. My impression is that they have macro expectations at a micro sales point.

Give them a year...see if anyone is pleased with them. Oddly enough they emailed me about submitting macro RF to them...but am dubious about that...especially as I have an active Getty contract.
