What's more frustrating to me about my own rejections, is I rarely if ever refer to these images as "isolations."  I'm just trying to shoot the darn thing over white, and isolation is almost never in my keywords for recent uploads.  So I don't understand why they reject them for being poor isolations. 

I think anything shot over white is considered isolation whether it is done in camera or in software or a combination of the two.  You might as well use the keyword isolated on an over white image when applicable because you are missing out on sales otherwise. 

Quote
My advice is to take a deep breath (maybe 12 or more), and get back to shooting tomorrow. Provided you've never had this problem in recent history, chances are high you will not have it again.  Plus, all of us love you, and that is what counts in the long run.   ;)

Thanks Dan - if only that were true!  :)

But very good advice from you, as usual.  I uploaded some more from the series yesterday after going over them again in photoshop with a fine tooth comb.  Hopefully they will fare better than their brothers.

On the comments that they may be competing with an inspectors images - these are not in competition with anything currently on the site.  (which is why I'm not displaying them here so they can be redundant by the time I finally get some accepted).  Heck, they may not even sell, but I would like to give them a shot.

Also, this situation notwithstanding, I stand by my earlier comments that istock's inspectors are the most objective in the industry.  I really don't think istock is plagued with such conflicts of interest.  More likely this was a new inspector taking an unusually heavy hand regarding isolations.

This is the second time you have referenced another persons files in conjunction with your own. I find that really interesting. Maybe stop poaching from others. You say that it doesn't matter if the blue flame was yours or someone elses, however, let ME clue you in. It's bad form to go out of your way to take from another contributors concept and then complain iStock won't accept your version.

It's almost beyond hilarious to read your commentary on the matter.

Was it a duplicate of one of YOUR blue flaming images, or someone else's? 



That's not so important, what is important is the fact that there are a growing number of reviewers on IS who are more interested in protecting their own portfolios than adding to the stocklist on IS. Add to that fact that you're not exclusive and you'll be struggling even harder to get past these agendas.

LOL, what I find more hilarious is the IQ of some of you tulips on this forum. It's like dealing with dolly the sheep but then again why I am sounding so surprised? It's all there in the content.

Ahhhh paulielittlenuts, I was wondering where you'd got to. You know, you remind me of one of those football hooligans; wherever there's a bit of action you just can't resist being hosed out of it by the police.

And as for whatever name I do happen to choose you can be absolutely sure it'll be a little bit more intelligent sounding than yours.

NEXT!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

It's always amused me how some people love stirring the pot on internet forums... They must have very boring real lives.

I am in this beautiful microstock  game one year, first on SS than DT and third IS. On IS I am 3 months and everybody which work in vectors know that is best site and rejections in tehnical moment is allways correct, but I am little bit affraid to return them on stupid comments abouth other rejections like : from where is that drawing-  which is my own. I work only 2D and 3D vector drawings 15 years and I have more than thousand very various themas and motives. First time I mean that many of them are not applicable for microstocks, but after some time I seen that all is applicable what is artististic and tehnical correct. Result in my mind: when I will have 2 thousends  bucks/mt on IS I will go ex. I dont want go on more sites than this three because  I mean that they are best and enaugh if you like to know whats metter with your art. peace from Croatia

Here's a bit of free advice for you, if you want to act like an infant on forums like this you should probably not have a link to your company associated with your screen ID, especially when you are supposed to be a PR and marketing expert.
You are seriously damaging your brand by making it appear that your company is staffed by a bunch of knuckle draggers. How do you expect people to have faith in your ability to improve their image when you are clearly incapable of not coming across as an a-hole yourself.
P.S. You haven't got back to me about my last post, you know the one where I pointed out that you admitted to plagiarism before being accused of it.

Dustin the Eurovision Turkey might be a good one.

This is what I mean by hilarious. Keep up the good work. It's nice to see someone have a fit after every comment.
