Have the rules changed about similar images? I just ran across a profile with over 40 of basically the same shot. I thought we were not supposed to have similar images.

Hello Derrick, only one image of any subject and scene/pose combination is allowed. I took a look at this users portfolio and see that subjects are either different dandelions or if it same dandelion pose/scene changes.

I hope this helps.

That's amusing Jasenka that you do not find these images similar. You guys must be making a lot of money off this guy. I had almost forgotten that the rules are different for everyone.

They look very similar to me. Different dandelion or different pose/scene? Huh?

This is the problem with this TOO similar images. Rules are always on a case to case basis depending on who is the tog. I agree that the images are not from same shots. However, this rule should be applied to everyone. It's hard to believe why Pixoto had tried to defend their action of deleting one of my images for "similar issue", by EDITING my image just to prove their point! But they have proved that the images are indeed of different shots, yet they consider it too similar!

These were the images:

Then they EDIT the other one just to prove their point:

Same flower, different shots - one facing left, one facing right...yet it's too similar!

THE RULE MUST BE APPLIED TO ALL, OR....NONE AT ALL!

Maybe you should just say duplicates then because I have have seen tons of similar images, no offense but voting for these images over and over gets pretty damn boring.
I only joined a month ago and I have to say I'm glad I haven't paid coz I'm getting pretty shocked at what's ok and what's not.
