I just had this file rejected for visable names,


file_thumbview_approve 


They were all made up, to add authenticity to the scene.  What should I do?

Can't see what names you added, but if you make them incredibly generic sounding and make it very clear what you've done in the image description area, then you stand a better chance of getting them accepted.

The names are on the badges. They are general (Jenny Smith, Penny Baxter, Fred Reeves).  Unfortunately I didn't put a note on the image to the inspector as the test one from the series got through ok without it.

I too have had a rejection in the past for made-up names and phone numbers. It's probably best to leave the badges blank and let the customer artwork their own names.

I don't think customers want to spend time photoshopping fake names onto badges. And besides, it won't look real %99 of the time. I'd try to resubmit with the explanation.

^^ But finished badges would have names in. Otherwise they would be just a pile of covers and bag of clips (like the ones in front of the keyboard). If the buyer wants to add names then you have to assume they can take out the names already there. However if a buyer hasn't got the ability to add names then it makes the scene look correct.


Editted to add a little up arrow as I was responding to Rob.

They will be rejected if they have names on them.

/So what is the best way to make it look like a proper registration scene.


Could I sign a PR on the badges as I was the one who printed them and own the copyright. This was a staged scene with models not a grabbed shot. I put time and effort to do this so it would be a shame to have to blank out the names and make the scene look odd.

ETA I have other images where models are putting badges on in the background.  It would not look correct with a blank badge.

Perhaps if you use Lorem Ipsum text or some other non-language symbols and make it clear that it is filler text? Typically, names = reject. Your made up name is someone else's real name. Same for license plates and logos, always best to leave generic/blank.

Maybe this should be moved to the designers forum and let the people who buy images give us their thoughts on this.


"Buyers want generic images because they want to add their own artwork." is an assumption that gets tossed around a lot on the forums. Maybe that was true at one time, but is it still true today?

I would think it would be more true today.  I think that as out prices have risen we have lost a lot of the school teachers, hobbyists, scrapbook makers, and students.  They were the buyers that used to buy on weekends,  Now sales on weekends are almost non0existent.  So I would expect that we are getting more people who go actual design work and perfectly capable of putting a name on a badge.  That isn't and esoteric skill.  But just my thought.

The Art Directors and designers I know don't have enough hours in the day! Lots of companies have laid off designers but the workload remains the same. They're all trying to do more with less and don't want to spend their precious time adding tiny text to a design to make it look more real.

We are sorry for inconveniencing the portion of the design community that doesn't have time to alter the images a little to reflect what they need. We require the removal of ANY identifiable information and hope the contributors who submit work through our site can understand.

Right, which is why the best solution has always been to skip fake and leave blank. If people need the names they can add them in. If they don't then they are all set. You have an easier time getting approved and wins all around.

^ but why is it identifiable if it is made up? weird. but to the OP, I would do as Rob suggested and use Lorem Ipsum text.

That was more of a brainstorm than a solution. Right now, the only winner is leave blank.

The names present might be made up but they are full names of people who could potentially exist.

Blank cards are best. Blank cards are the most useful. Blank cards is what we accept.

I will take it a step further and point out that the names on the cards would also limit the markets your file would be useful for. If you are using common North American names other continents, nations, regions of the world, etc etc, wouldn't find much value in them.
