To separate children from family and to put fashion together with maternity is not nature. I suggest a little bit different categories:

- Family - including babies, children, parents, relatives, birthdays, weddings,...
- Portraits (all ages)
- Sport, Fitness and Free time - including people on holydays
- Professional People - including musicians&entertaining, fashion, bodyart+tatoo, body-parts, fine art, Nudes & Boudoir, people from 'news and events'

Fortunately, Terry, I did not submit all those photos. That was statistics of a day, just to show it is something wrong with categories if in one category there are 432 photographs, and in another only 6 photographs submitted in the same day.

Hello Sherry. Thank you for note. I understand that everyone would like to have few categories for himself but it does not have much sense to have so many categories with so few photographs, and some categories with so many photographs.

Maybe it will help if someone compare weekly total of submitted photographs in each category. Yesterday, e.i., statistic is as following:
Abstract = 91
Animals = 536
A. Cats = 56
A. Dogs = 65
Artistic Objects = 344
Babies & Children = 134
City, Street & Park = 143
Digital Art = 56
Food & Drink = 37
Holidays = 13
Instagram & Mobile = 94
Landscapes = 539
Nature Up Close = 576
News & Events = 16
Novices Only = 55
Nudes & Boudoir = 31
People = 368
Products & Objects = 31
Professional People = 17
Sports & Fitness = 85
Transportation = 125
Travel Locations = 21
Wedding = 57

There is no need to speak after looking at these numbers, is it?
I think that cats, dogs, hamster, guinea pig, parakeets, ... should be in the category "Pets" - it will be much better to have all home pets together instead having categories as cats (56), dogs (65) and animals (536).

The pets category actually kind of makes sense. If you have a dog or a cat it has more of a chance to win against other dogs or cats- but your hamster has to battle against eagles and tigers and butterflies.

Dear Sherry, it is very nice to have your note.

In category Travel Locations subcategories are:
- Air travell (last WEEK submitted 7 photographs) = Landscapes
- Busses (last WEEK submitted 2 photographs) = Transportation
- Railway (last WEEK submitted 9 photographs) = Transportation
- Subway (last WEEK submitted 6 photographs) = Transportation
- Landmarks (last WEEK submitted 131 photographs) = City, street & park

What do you think of it? Specially as the category City, street & park has a subcategory Historic Districts.

Since the amount submitted must vary from day to day I'm not quite sure what your figures prove.

Dear Terry, it would be nice if you check the number of submitted photographs through all categories for last year to make better point.

I'm not even sure what your point is to be honest and I'm certainly not going to be checking the numbers of photos submitted in a year.....lol. However I'm sure Pixoto see what you are getting at and that's the important thing.

Dear Terry, the first point is that it is not natural to separate children from parents and the rest of the family. And when I looked at that, I noted that in some categories sub-categories overlap and in some categories is always a lot of submitted photos while in other categories there are mostly few photos.
Cats and dogs are pets as well as some other animals - why not disburden category Animals from all pets and instead of 3 categories animals-cats-dogs make different animals categories, something as Pets, Mammals and Animals (sea creatures, Insects, spiders, reptiles). Am I now clearer?

In the nature dogs are chasing cats, rare playing with them, but it is reality. Why not have category Pets with subcategories Dogs, Cats, Hamster, Guinea pig, Parakeets, ... , Playing within the species, playing with other pet-species?
