Istock is telling me via email that images that have the same person, doing the same pose, where one is a close up of the face and another is a full body shot is 'too similar', and that a full body vertical shot of a person vs a horizontal torso shot are 'too similar' and have limited  my uploads (to an unreasonably low number).

I have 50,000 photos. they want me to upload a max of 50 per week.

no advance warning.

I am going to lose out on all those 1 cent photo sales.

I am not complaining, I am just notifying the rest of you because they do not warn in advance, they just place the restriction and refuse to resolve it.

Someone else received a similar message and restriction. You'll see their detailed message in the thread titled "?Images in a series ... good idea?"

There's no law stating that you can't submit similar shots to a stock agency, so you should sue them.
