I have noticed that Shutterstock sells our images also in double size of original image, which is called "Super". If your original image is 2700x2028, super size is - 5400x4056.

I would like to ask do you upload images in double size in Fine Art America? Probably quality of resized twice images is good than even Shutterstock offer them?

I'm not so concerned with size manipulation as I am with the MR's and the PR's on FAA. I've seen many images there that require releases on most other MS sites. Is it because they are Art? I've seen several Disney images sold that would require a release elsewhere. Any thoughts?

I asked the same question and got this information:

I'm even more curious about the images which comprise historic photos of celebs, e.g. the Rat Pack or vintage sports stars, well or badly composited into montages and the seller looks about 30 in their author photo. Or indeed digital or analogue artworks clearly based on a classic photo of a celeb. Maybe they are all descendents of the original photographer.

Off topic in the first comment. Thats quick, even for MSG.  ;)

I have the same question too, basically, how can SS blow up an image that big and still keep the quality in check.

As for FAA, I sometimes blow an image up to be able to sell at a higher price point, but only if the quality is still good. I never blow up more then 25%, which is stretching it already if you ask me.

FAA specifically ask you not to upsize images. See instructions on upload page for their image criteria.

Yes, because it can degrade quality and because some people blow up a thumbnail to 10mp. If I blow up by 25% and do it in steps using Photoshop you hardly notice the quality difference. So its perfectly fine to interpolate if its done correctly.
