I think Bill that you are allowed a B&W version and a coloured version according to the rules. I think it is pathetic but those are the rules. As are the many repetitive operators - slight deviations of the same subject and photo.... its like winning at any cost - no imagination and little skill.

Derek.... you are correct. You are allowed a B&W version but they need to go in th B&W category. All of this togs images are in the people category. This tog has consistently posted B&W duplicates since 2012.

I love B&W images in their own right, but it seems Pixoto just wants to increase it's stock image numbers by allowing togs to regurgitate B&W versions of coloured images.

Like you i'm totally against this rule.

Re your comment above Bill, recently the b/w category has shown little imagination in that its just duplicates of posted colour shots.I know its allowed but I'm thinking maybe it needs to be rethought in some way because its getting worse and is pretty boring.

Hi Bill, all reported has been taken care of. Just as a note, before June 2012 it was allowed to post one color and one black and white version of same photo in same category.
