I recently uploaded a vector image to Shutterstock, Fotolia and IStock. I use Inkscape to create my vectors, therefore I cannot check my files in Illustrator. Shutterstock rejected the image, saying "no bitmaps allowed", and after carefully screening the whole image, I found a small section in which I had accidently used transparency, which was likely the cause for the rejection.

To my big surprise, the same file was accepted by Fotolia and Istock. I am a little confused, I mean either my file contains bitmaps or not??? Should I resubmit the corrected file to Fotolia and IStock? Is it actually possible to replace an already accepted image?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Transparency is allowed in eps 10 files so that isn't it. Without the actual file to check in illustrator I can't tell you any more than that

It was saved as an EPS 8 file. So definitely no transparency possible. I am just really confused that IStock and Fotolia didn't notice. Maybe I'll delete and resubmit the file, I don't wanna sell bad quality vectors. I hope they'll accept self-deleted and re-submitted images  :-[

 I have submitted enough vectors created with transparency, saved as EPS 8 but they never got a rejection on ss for that so that cant be it

Really? I didn't know that. I have always tried to avoid transparency, I thought that it's not compatible with the required EPS format. Being able to use transparency would make my life a lot easier!!
