I have noticed an increase in images being put into categories that do not quite match, even when there are categories available that match perfectly. For example, a praying mantis in the pets category. Do you verify the accuracy of an image's category prior to awarding an award?

Why not have a button/link on the image duel, "Not Correct Category"...or something to that effect?

That's a great idea and it would be even greater if put into practice. Sometimes when I vote I feel like comparing the smell of a burnt toast with the color of my mixed nail polish. They have nothing in common. I find myself skipping rather than voting.

I've noticed this too. Then tonight I noticed that there is a subcategory for insects and spiders in the Pets category. While I know some people do have spiders as pets, I don't know of anyone who has an insect (unless it's going to be food for something else). I think having the same subcategory in too many categories might be confusing people.

I can see that you may think that but I caught two Wolf spiders in our house and kept them in separate jars for about four months and took pictures and a couple small videos of them. If I found a Praying Mantis I may keep it for awhile To get some good shots too. I may not consider them pets but I would keep them for study and to take pictures....

Hi Kara and Y-von, the Insects category is in Animals, that category includes all animals and living creatures except for domestic Dogs, domestic cats and People.

I agree with this thread, I've noticed some in transportation under other when there is a category for the photo's subject.

I am sure you are right. I just thought it was pretty funny. I know I name my car but this may be a bit much. I sure hope it is housebroken. Oil stains are hard to get rid of. :)

I was going through the pet section and saw the following and was wondering why in some pictures this frog is a pet and in other pictures it is in wildlife? Anyone care to take this on?

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
and also
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

There are many others like this by the same member so I am a bit confused as to what to categorize my frog pictures as. I think the photos are beautiful by the way just not consistent in how they are categorized.

The best category would probably be Transportation Aircraft but it could go into News as well. There are some categories like News & Events, Holidays, Instagram and Mobile that are more of a mix of subjects.

Hi Uros and Darrell, I am working with that photographer to get the issue straightened out but the employee that removes those broken images from the system is on vacation, so when he gets back they will be removed. (yep there are two versions of the broken image. )

Hi Y-von sometimes it is difficult to figure out and some images fit into more than one category. You can always ask here in the Community though, everyone would be very willing to help. :)

I have a photo of a rose in a vase. You can see the entire vase and the rose sticking out the top. The photo is backlit. What category should I put it in?

Actually I read the category descriptions and it does fall under artistic objects..."Here’s where you put all of those artistic shots of man made objects of all types from coffee mugs to violins. Natural objects modified from their natural form can also be placed here. The still life subcategory can be used when there are two or more objects in an unnatual setting as the subject."

Dear Alison,
I have a lap top that I use sometimes and my finger can be on the wrong picture and I have it above the mouse pad and don't even touch it and it clicks on the wrong one. It makes me so mad because I like the other picture better..I also have tremors and when I use the mouse I caan click the wrong one too. I love your picture and would click for it if I had the chance....

That's one of the "borderline" type that are supposed to be left alone by the report team, as it could go in either. I'd personally have put it in Animals as the flower is a bit too cropped, and the depth of field isn't deep enough to give the flower enough focus, but it would be a close call.

Well hey look what was just re-categorised by the reporting team....http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... looks like the reporting team now moves them regardless of borderline or not, so you'd better stick to animals. As this is in direct contradiction to Jason's previous decisions, I want someone with actual authority (Jason) to explain why this is.

How about a new category for mixed images that fit into more than one category so that we don't have to keep having our work recategorized according to the opinion of the report team.

Personally I can't imagine looking at this image and thinking it was a picture of a flower. Your eye is immediately drawn to the bug. It doesn't seem borderline to me.

Is it possible for Pixoto to display examples of what is and is not acceptable for various categories so that we can all be on the same page? I am sure there are some examples that will work out of over 2 million images to choose from.

Just a clarification - my response was to Darrell's image. Andrew has found one of those true borderline images that could go in either category.

Hello Irena, if the photograph is about landscape it should go in Landscape category. Please look at Category description page for definition

If you see photos in wrong category please report them using Report button. Thank you!

ok, tho ive been climbing for 15 years and thats not climbing, but hey its your site. oh and looking though the uncategorised and there are loads of pics in there that are blatantly portraits and landscapes. i had a pic that ended up in there because there arent enough categories in public holidays, you only cover major us ones. maybe just an 'other' cat might be a good idea.
