I am having trouble with understanding what the "term similar images" means. I was scolded by pixoto when I substantially cropped a photo and submitted it. They took down my picture. Yet I have seen a lady who puts up three exact pictures of one of her daughters and the ONLY difference is that the eye are looking in different directions. Then yesterday a photographer posted a beautiful photo of a staircase that is EXACTLY the same as a photo he got 750+ points for in 2015 except that he changed the color of the light in the staircase. I personally don't care what the answer is other than we need to have an understanding of what the rules are. If you invert and crop a photo is that enough to be different? I like the saying "sauce for the goose sauce for the gander". Since Pixoto makes the rules, am I correct in assuming they will read this and provide some clarity? Sincerely, Bill

Hello Bill, changing colors on photo, crop/zoom, flipping it horizontally (or vertically) is considered to be very similar images and please do report them as such.

Very similar images are ones that have same subject with same pose/scene.

I hope this helps.
