Stop letting photoshop images succeed in "fine art" people category. There are many of the top scorers this week with fake photos. It's really not fair!!! The photo below has duplicated birds added to it, and there are many others. All the points they achieved by cheating, should have went to other photographers. There are many this week that should be eliminated. Check out this one.

Of all the three pics Tigi just reported, NOT ONE is in the photoshop category. The waterman is also first of all the submitted pics and is a heavy "deja vu" one. It looks like pixoto is becoming a photoshop community, forget the photo community!

It's to bad that this site is becoming more about people that know how to use Photoshop rather than people that can take creative, artistic photographs.

you said it Andrew! They know how to use photoshop. A shame they don't know how to put it in the right category. Don't missunderstand me, I love many of them, they are fairy dreams, I would like to know how to do it for fun (don't have photoshop, cannot afford it) but it is digital art and not photography. I mean the heavy photoshopped, not changing a little bit colours or adjusting levels. So please folks, put your digital art in the photoshop category, you will get your points, don't worry, and the other photographers will get theirs as well..!!

And please, can we have the promised new categories with the black and white, the macros, HDR and everything which was suggested. I think it could help. I know, your folks of the staff are very busy and you must have already serious headache with all these complains and you are working hard but please help. It could be so nice spending our time more with taking pictures or processing them (for the photoshop artists) than having a war.

Happy shooting

I agree Michelle, I love good creative Photoshop art as long as it is in the correct category. It seems many of the users here do not understand the difference between a photoshoped image and a fine art image. My definition is that a photograph is a moment in time that has been captured. A photoshoped image is one that has been created using elements from more than one photo, more like a painting. That does not make it any less beautiful but it does make it a creation rather than a photo. I also do not envy the staff as they have a rough time ahead but I am sure they will do the right thing. Can't we all just get along? :)

Well I only been on this site few days, and after complaining about nude pics and learning how to disable it I amlooking at the other stuff, so now I am wondering about how are my pics safe. I have seen many pics allrady in a wrong category , so what I been doing I been voting for the other pic which is in the right category, and as for photoshop, its completly different to photography and its not fair when people cheat, so after reading all this I will be reporting the pics also. Enjoyed the read and i see how it goes, as i do enjoy doing the phot duels. But also I find it bit unfair when pics with 100 photoduels wins, becouse the other pics only had 50 duels....... thats bit unfair........if only all the pics have similer number of duels you can really be fair and announce the winner........ what do you guys think or do about that.... I guess the only think to do is become pro ?

I don't think they base awards on total points. I have won awards with fewer than 50 or 60 duels. I think it is based on ratios and how well the photo you won against is rated as well.

This is certainly worth investigating. But did you ever consider that they may be stealing photos from David? I just hate accusing anyone without solid evidence.

Something fishy is going on. These 2 photos are the same but there are many others of the same girl on the nude site. Very strange.

This and many other photos were supposedly taken by a person or alias named Slastyonoff.
