@Cathy,
you're right Cathy, of course.
My argument is flawed. I only used it because I was trying to offer exclusives a way out.
These things shouldn't be happening, but they certainly do.
And I think I understand why.

I have found, as a Nikon user, I get far fewer rejections when using Nikons Capture NX2 software than when I used Photoshop.

An artifact (along with an "overfiltering") is a button pushed by an expert iStock reviewer when he doesn't like your name or just had a fight with his girlfriend and can't think of a legitimate reason to reject a perfectly good photo.

Is anyone going to post an example, or is everyone just going to agree with everyone else that all rejections for artifacts are nonsense?


Here's my latest one, clearly showing the 'Artefact' problem !  ;)



This was taken with a P&S, as it's all I had with me at the time, and that's why it's so exaggerated !

Hope this helps :)

Well, there are definitely plenty of artifacts there.  I would have been very surprised if they had accepted it. 

I just got a new P&S.  Looks great for 4x6 and 5x7 prints, but doubt the micros would accept anything from it.  That's okay, I bought it to just take family photos and maybe have fun with :).

Yep, I 'd say that's a good example of some pretty obvious artifacts.

Anybody who can't see these needs a new monitor or prescription glasses.

Agreed with the addition that SS reviewers also have the same catch all button that includes "Noise--Noise, film grain, over-sharpening, or artifacts at full size."  ;D

You might be surprised !!  They've accepted plenty from this 10MP one, and my 5MP one too !

And that includes iStock !!

The light levels were a bit low for this one though, hence the artefacts :)

Yes, looks exactly like the artefacting I get if there's not enough light.

Definitely artifacting.  But I've been able to get some stuff accepted from my SD780 IS, however, I will downsize anything from that camera to 1200x1600

ArtyFarty is more than allowed in more than 90% of this Stokas new pimping gallery called oversaturated in they front page.

But if you submit something like this they will want to make lobotomy in you brain.
Just use "Reflect damage" from Diablo games or use lubricant ass and became exclusive  ;D
