Well, it makes me proud to know that some of my images shot 10 years ago with canon 400d one month after I started photography as a hobby still comply with your new quality guidelines! I was soooo good even at that time!  8)

But still it is surprising that thousands of my images shot with professional equipment after I became a professional photographer do not aligh with your new quality guidelines. And these images are the ones that earned me literally hundreds of thousands of dollars, not the first ones :)

Anyway, I am still not convinced.

I said it on another thread but I'll say it here too.
Their reviews are completely arbitrary. You know they are going to reject a lot but there is absolutely no way of predicting what. This has the opposite effect of what they want as it makes it impossible to curate your portfolio. You have to just upload everything junk or not and know a random small percentage will be accepted. No point uploading better work as it is just as likely to get rejected. I found this with vectors on graphic river too. It is bizarre.

Bad Company

All my images on photodune were deleted except for around 400 (which are moslty from first batch (and they are not really good, they are 10 years old) and a few last batches). And these 400 are definitely not the best sellers. So it looks like they have just deleted 89% or portfolio without choosing which images to delete and which ones to retain.

Also I saw in my earnings that (surprise, surprise) Austrailian tax cut is 30%.

So I have to upload my portfolio again to elements, spend time, attach releases. And with my 10+ years experience in microstock (and macrostock) industry I have serious doubts that these efforts will be repaid.

I am sorry you have had a less than stellar experience with us so far. The 400 retained images really should have aligned with our new quality guidelines here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/217906203-Commercial-Demand-Guide

As for your efforts moving forward, an Elements author only needs to upload to PhotoDune once and your items will be automatically be ported to Elements. :)

Did it ever occur to you that maybe you could've created a new area with the existing images that tailored to the buyers? Most sites have them like offset with Shutterstock . Heck, even Deposit Photo has one with the Curated Collection.  Once again we could have offered this option if you had asked us in the beginning...  :-[
