Nice Jean, don't know when I last had an EL.  Got another Masai Agency though.


This is one of my recent cat aquaintances, a beauty but don't think I want to cuddle it. Searched gepard and there are many. Unfortunately no 2 and three in a BM search are leopards, and they are keyworded with both leopard and cheeta (gepard).


Que is increadibly fast I have hardly time to finish uploading before the images are accepted,

Trying for your luck today, Jonathan.  I just uploaded a few.  We'll see.  


Btw, they are paying by Paypal today, right?  It's running late, if it's running at all.

Just had 2 Olympic files deactivated {editorials} due to logos apparently.


My son has just applied to become a contributor and I helped him with his application. The 3 files he sent in were from South East Asia and I would happily have seen them in my portfolio - I tried to make sure they were diverse- a candid of some children, a paddy field with a worker on a dividing third and a reflection landscape of Angkor Wat.  Rejected for lack of diversity and not upto standard. 


I must have got my application in just in time!!!!

^ I had my Olympic Flag Deactivated today. I sent copies of my credentials and application stating that I can sell for editorial only and they say nope. The double standard again


 


ETA: I just some more clarification on the deactivation of Olympic images


The IOC has specifically contacted iStockphoto and filed a formal request to cease licensing imagery of their logo, or their events.

This I can live with, I know how the IOC can be.

I also had two deactivated the other day. A vertical and a horizontal frame of the Olympic ski jumps in Lake Placid, NY. Neither had any logos or rings or anything else visible - after I edited one of them by cloning out the rings on a banner hanging at the bottom of the ramp. Well...nothing obvious/visible...other than it's obvious there aren't too many of these types of immense side by side single-purpose structures in use for high school ski teams or whomever.


Anyway, probably similar to yours, the notes on each deactivation said "...Due to contractual agreements with the International Olympic Committee, there are restrictions on Olympic themed content for all our collections and we regret we can not offer this file.../xxxxxxxx/...Do note that imagery featuring exterior views of previous Olympic venues and parks may be submitted in their unedited form to our Editorial collection provided the five ring logo, torches or mascots are not visible. Interior views of venues require consent..." (my bold/underlining).


All of which I believe means I can re-submit the one I didn't clone as editorial because I managed to cover the banner with the trees in camera on that one. I'm going to give it a shot because while the cloned one never sold, this one did a couple of times... We'll see.

And now a buyer has to buy it from IOC dirctly and it will probably cost $400 per sale ... or they can just buy it from another site which I'm sure wont be shutting down their Olympic imagery.

I must have broken them. I uploaded 3 hours ago and still no inspections!

... though they are locked for inspection.

I suspect the super-fast inspections are due to many people not bothering to upload.

That was my guess, although its been said inspectors are just doing OT.

That's tough on the Olympic images Let's hope the IOC leans on the other agencies too.
