Is there a minimum size limit at StockXpert? I just uploaded a few pictures, and while categorizing them they were already accepted. ALL 25 of them in one batch and within just an hour or so! Last time they took over 2 weeks and accepted maybe 65% or so
The strange thing is that for one photo I made a mistake and uploaded a 800x533 photo.... and they accepted it...  ???
Is that normal?

According to my notes, StockXpert's minimum size is 800x600. But parenthetically it also states 4MP. 800x533 is > 4MP, so seems like the 4MP figure is the correct one.

800X533 is 0.4 MP.

Long ago in their e\arly days, the minimum was 1280x960 - I have images in this size there.  They probably upgraded this minimum since then.  BTW, is IS minimum still 2MPix?

That was a quick review, congrats. As Seb wrote in one of his forums there, they are quite saturated and concentrating on Xmas stock more than anything else.

As for size, cannot explain, but, I am sure you know, reviewers can make mistakes too.

It's odd that this is left for the reviewers, since it can be checked during the uploading process, as I believe every other site does.

Simsi, are you sure you uploaded such a small file?

Last of all from Selling Images on StockXpert

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS

    * file format: JPEG (RGB)
    * maximum file size: 16 megabytes
    * minimum dimensions: 800*600 pixels


    * XS ~ 0.2 megapixels
    * S ~ 0.5 megapixels
    * M ~ 2 megapixels
    * L ~ 4 megapixels
    * XL ~ 8 megapixels
    * XXL ~ 15 megapixels or more


Could have fooled me. My notes say 1MP minimum. But I have listed StockXpert as 800x600 which is .5MP

Maybe I was just rounding up?  :D

yeah i really think they made some mistake especially because they accepted everything in one shot and so fast.

they sell xs size made from big images not they accept xs size, read it again, 800 wide minimum. They sell xs made from 4 mega images to.
