  1. I know nothing about digitally created art but maybe the following could be useful? Thanks, but these aren't vectors.
  2. As for being similar, I'm not sure I would say they were, but maybe Alamy mean they are all the same type of image? You'd have to ask them about that though.

It seems the approval process has some flaws in this case, because the below three images were rejected for the following reasons: Filename Rejection reason 20170101.jpg Excessive similars Compression artefacts 1) I really have no idea what" excessive similars" means? Too many Alamy images already look like them? 2) Compr
