Why were my photos rejected?

Photos rejections on Market can happen for a number of reasons:

  • Low resolution - Photos need to have a resolution higher than 2 megapixels to be licensed on Market.
  • Watermarks - Editing your photos to get rid of the watermarks will increase your chances of selling. For example, getting rid of the name in the bottom right hand corner.Kirsty_watermark.JPG To look like this:

  • Overly edited - Buyers won’t consider photos where the edits are too extreme. For example:
    KirtsyAdam_extreme-edit.jpg
  • Out of focus -  Images which are not clearly defined can also be rejected. For example:
    eyeemfiltered1474466091204.jpg

  • Repetitive content (nature, etc) - Diversify your photos. Uploading sister shots or images which are always the same will mean fewer of your images will be chosen for Market.
  • Terms of Service - Photos that breach the EyeEm Terms Of Service can also be rejected.
  • Photo Collages - Photos that contain multiple images will not be chosen. For example:
    1_photo-montage.JPG
