I have just finished uploading 30 or so of my best images, which I resized to improve upload speed, but now read that you are planning a stock service. Obviously, to be sold for stock, the full hi-res image would be required. I don't want to lose awards and points by deleting the smaller images but also don't want to fall foul of the duplicate images rule, or have duplicate images all over my profile page, by uploading the hi-res version as well. Do the admin team have any thoughts/plans to address this conflict? Can I suggest a linked-image option where you can 'associate' a hi-res image with an existing lower res image for stock downloads only - a bit like Flickr's selection of download sizes? Thanks.

I'm glad you are interested in our upcoming stock service!

Unfortunately, while would would really like to, our initial launch of the service will not allow image replacement as you describe. The minimum image size will be 4 mega pixels. Currently the majority of images uploaded to Pixoto are actually larger than that.

We may add this ability after launch depending on the demand.

Thanks Jason. So would I be able to at least re-upload the same image in hi-res for stock submission without deleting the original?

I'd have been happy to upload the full size initially but there seemed little point waiting for a longer upload when the images displayed are quite small.

It would have been very beneficial if the 4 mega pixel rule and no replacements were stipulated some time ago.

I also have the same problem as Brent. Most of my photos especially the older ones are all less than 4mb.
