I'm uploading a lot of pictures at 500px with Stocksubmitter just because I can get exposure at Getty, but there are a lot of pictures that are appearing as rejected and another as Core Collection (which are what I imagine have been accepted to license or be sold) then my question is this: is it worth leaving the other photographs that have been rejected for your exhibition? I really do not care about likes or comments, rather I want to take something of benefit from 500px

I hope you can help me

I uploaded about 2400 images during my 30 day free trial of Pro and have ended up with 485 being licensed. Sales so far have not been great although perhaps Getty are slow at reporting - who knows? I don't think there is any chance of the remaining ones being licensed now that 500px has stopped that, and so the remaining images will just sit there, I think.

I'm not sure how I would delete so many without cancelling my account.

VCG own 500px so it may be wise to check if any images are for sale on their site.  I would guess that the Getty ones are for sale on there anyway.

Interesting thought. How do you find the VCG stock agency site? Do they have one of their own, or is it under the old names? They bought Corbis, didnt they?

Anyone submit direct to VCG (assuming you can)?

I see no reason for keeping up rejected photos. Core Collection on the other hand do sell. But things are rather slow for the past few months.

Slow? Dead. Licensed doesn't necessarily mean licensed, just that Getty or China MAY choose to put them on their site. And then, of course, they MAY or MAY NOT sell.
Last sale a month back 74cents.
As for leave on site rejected images? Why? They can be very easily stolen. Happened to me....
