Hello
This morming one of your team removed three of my portfolio for being too similar to others. I fully understand that BUT in doing so he has removed them from my associated Pixoto Website which I pay for in my Pro status fee.
Surely as a photographer I have a right to decide which images appear on my website and you who host it have no right to delete images from my MY website without my permission!

Hello Mike,

I am sorry this caused a problem with your website. However the rules are clear on Similar Images and you agreed to follow the rules when you registered an account on Pixoto.com Similar images are a violation of the contest rules.

You may indeed choose which of the similar images are on your account by submitting only one version of the image,

You can review the Contest Rules at http://www.pixoto.com/photography-com...

Hello Sherry
As I said I understand your ruling. I wasn't trying to break rules and I have removed another one of my images which is in my own view too similar.

But as I pay for the website as part of the Pro subscription don't you you Pixoto should also play fairly by introducing a way members can customise their website without effecting their portfolio.

Mike.

Hi Mike and thank you. I will forward your idea to the rest of the team so they can take it in to consideration.

I agree with Mike. There can be similar pics of birds, animals, etc we can ask nature to pose differently for us. At least before removing the image team should consult with the photographer. There should be proper channel for this. Also, there are so many pics still there which are similar like water droplets, landscapes, animals, birds, sunsets, etc. Pixoto team should take action on every such pics then. Very disappointed.

Hello Sneha, please check my reply here: http://community.pixoto.com/pixoto/to...

If you see very similar images or images with watermark, please do report them.

I hope this helps.
