It's a problem when a contribution is to remove an image with gettyimage watermarks are declined. This happens frequently. There needs to be a fix so that these are not declined. If I was to guess, it's b/c the names are locked, ie submitted by an imdb pro user, but still unacceptable that these were declined. Also it took 5 days, so a person rejected it, not a bot.

Remember about the false info that MAthePA gave about Getty? That all Getty Images do not belong.
I figured out what Getty Images are allowed. IMDb has lots of licensed Getty Images. They are the ones without watermarks.
See on the bottom....It says Photo by: and who it's licensed to with a copyright and date.
That is a Good Getty.
The ones above are Bad Getty!

It's unbelievable that IMDb still has so much trouble doing somethings so easy. There are very clear watermarks on these photos. If they have been looked at by an IMDb staffer, that's rather troublesome.

Thx Michelle. If possible, knowing why the person(s) rejected these and what I could have done differently so that they would have been accepted would be very helpful. I know many times the watermark is below the "bars" (not sure what to call them, but the things that appear and disappear on the top and bottom of the image), but in these cases that wasn't an issue. I'm sure there's some way to put in the text box so as it'll be done right the first time, but just need to know what would help the reviewers.
