I have joined Stockimo 2 days ago and uploaded immediately some of my iphone images. 10 were accepted with scores from 2.3 to 3.7 with the majority at 2.7, 8 were rejected (it means they did not score minimum 2, and 7 are still pending.
What I do not understand is that most of the images accepted were taken with an iphone 3gs and using hipstamatic or even some borders apps, whereas some images taken with my iphone 4s with good composition, sharpness and correctly titled and keyworded were rejected, i wonder why and I beleive the selection is not made on the sharpness criteria or "quality" so what makes an image pass or fail?
Also I cannot find my stockimo images accepted by contributor (as on Alamy) but the only way to find them on Alamy is to search for the word "stockimo" and a keyword I know I used on an image ( for example "stockimo venice".
I do not understand how buyers will search and find the images??
