So I'm trying to pass my first submission. To be clear, the images I have to submit aren't photographs, but are digitally-created abstract art I've created. (If it turns out Alamy *only* accepts photographs, please tell me!) It seems the approval process has some flaws in this case, because the below three images were rejected for the following reasons:
1) I really have no idea what" excessive similars" means? Too many Alamy images already look like them?
2) Compression artefacts. These images are created pixel-by-pixel by a C# program. The only reason there are *any* compression artefacts is that the Alamy submission process requires JPG format, instead of the native PNG format they were originally saved in. If you make me submit in a compressed format, of course there's going to be compression artefacts! So I feel that criticism is pretty unfair.
Anyway, below are links to the images I submitted, any feedback from forum regulars is appreciated.
I feel like images such as this have a ton of uses in presentations, backgrounds for brochures or video productions, etc.
