I forgot to put "Pure Photo" to my photos. Please add it to the Edit image info page so that we can edit it later.If I resubmit an older picture I need to edit there too. Also please add something to show that this is a Pure Photo in the leaderboard and also on the profile pages. Thanks!

I think tagging won't work, you need to put it while submitting for the first time. I think I'll wait till someone from Pixoto changes how we can put a picture as Pure Photo if we forget while submitting and also how to put Pure Photo when we resubmit an already submitted photo.

For now in order to have the "pure photo" tag I believe you need to delete the photo and do a complete re-upload to be able to mark the photo as Pure Photo.

It's not showing up anywhere that we have made that photo a Pure photo. I think Pixoto team has to work on that. They were talking about putting a filter to show only Pure Photos.

For the time being, though, couldn't we just add in the word 'pure' to our images' tags?

Then, once the Pure filter has been perfected, we'll be able to find all those tagged that way and edit them correctly.

I don't know about the tag but while submitting we have to put a check on a box just like for Mature Content. My problem is that I forgot to put it when i submitted and now I do not see a way to make my photo a Pure Photo after submission. There is no way right now to edit it later.

Just add in a 'Pure' tag and people can search for it that way. Later, perhaps, our Editors will be able to migrate them across. d

Good point. I'm not sure how that works. Maybe its a magic invisible tag. :)

A couple things RE pure photo:
1) currently the pure photo icon is not showing up on the leaderboard or the image detail page (we should have that done this week)
2) you can't add the pure photo checkbox after an image has been submitted. The reason for that is that then when we review the pure photos and remove inappropriate tags an unscrupulous player could simply add it back right before awards are assigned. We can work around this issue - it's just going to take some time for us to develop a review history for each image.

I forgot to add it in my few photos I was submitting for the first time when the new categories were introduced. I was not used to it. So maybe this time I have to live without putting the Pure Photo tags to those photos. Also I might have put a Pure Photo tag by mistake. Can that be removed? I think i put a Pure Photo tag to a Digital Art photo. Sorry about that. Need to be careful from next time. :)

Just a quick question, what is the reason behind pure photo. Is it only for non-edited film? All newer DSLRs and most point and shoots can be set up to do incredible work right in the camera (look at something as simple as a Canon S95 or S100. The only true Pure Photo is a RAW file, and RAW can not be looked at in that format. I can set my Canon DSLR to about a 1000 different settings to get great or lousy results as a JPEG. I am not trying to be controversial on this one. It just does not compute in my brain.
Thanks,
Jim
Here is a "pure jpeg" shot along side an HDR shot that I just won a bit of awards for, no one would want to vote on it, because it looks like a snapshot.

Pop, I am not saying this is a great shot, but if I am voting, I want to see what the person saw or imagined the shot to be.

No one is saying these photos can't be posted. Just that they can't be tagged as Pure..When you vote you will not see if the photo is pure or not but as it says in the release announcements they will have special awards for those that can produce a great photo without HDR or heavy post processing. This will not be taking away anything from those that do HDR or heavy processing just recognizing the ability of those that don't use heavy post processing.

The whole thing behind pure photo is to recognize the ability to take a spectacular photo without having to add and change it so it is a completely different photo than you took. Like in the old days when we used a darkroom and did dodging and burning and developed our own film.
It takes skill and technique to be able to take a beautiful picture without heavy post processing. I have pasted the Pixoto definition of Pure photo for you below. I think common sense and honesty should guide your decision on if you should tag the photo as pure. We all know or should know by now how much processing is to much to be called Pure. I would say if you could have done it in a darkroom than it is a pure photo. Controlling contrast, and brightness and minor adjustments is ok in my humble opinion. I hope my words have helped.

Pure Photo Details & Qualifications:

Pure Photos are minimally touched images. We recognized these images with special weekly awards and points.
To qualify: The Scene was produced in camera (not a composite of multiple photos) and contains minimal post production (no HDR, selective color or other heavy editing). In camera special effects are prohibited. These photos must look and feel natural.
When uploading photos from the Submit page, select the check box labeled “Pure Photo”. Pure photos are allowed in any category and sub category.

And before anyone gets on my case I want to say it also takes lots of skill, a creative mind and technique to use the software necessary to do post processing. :)

Darcie. If you read one post up you will see the official Pixoto explanation and definition of what Pure Photo means. Nedeljko was just showing what can be done without any editing if you know how to do it.

Andrew, I think it's not difficult to take a good picture with one shot. It depends on:
1. if you take pictures since long time, before the digital era, it's easy. At this time we had to be careful with our films, couldn't just delete a lot
2. and more difficult for somebody who never shot photos with a film camera and started right away with digital, they would maybe just take a lot of pics as they anyway can delete them. Or process them with a software

I've read in the past about (one of my heroes) Ansel Adams and how he coped with taking lots of images to get the right one.

He didn't.

He would carry an oversized camera, plus heavy wooden tripod, up a mountain for a day's shooting. With him, apart from food and water, he would have as many as eight (that's "8"!) plates to expose. No more.

Of course, with him he would also know that he could "fix it in post", spending many days on the best of his negatives.

Yes.

First 'Look'.

Then 'See'.

'Think'.

Then 'Shoot'.

(In Zen there is the axiom, "Ready, Fire, Aim" - but that might be a bit confusing!)
