    Quite serious. The percentage of images submitted at 1920 that are accepted is much lower than that of images submitted at smaller sizes like 1280. It is very difficult to hide the flaws in an image at higher resolution, which is why we allow only proven uploaders to submit at larger resolutions.

    It's actually just that large size image hard harder to edit and get accepted. People have first to prove that they can get smaller pics accepted before we can allow larger, more difficult size.

    Thanks for the clarification. Makes no real sense to me though. This way I would have to upload relatively low-res pictures, and after you established that they are indeed good images, you're stuck with the low-res versions of images of which the originals are good enough to be printed billboard-size.

    Also, I see images from other users in sizes of 1680 wide, so it's obviously not a "site-wide" limit?

    The maximum size of 1280 px wide is available to you. We raised it in January 2017.

    You can request it through the link on your photographer page, but we generally approve larger limits only if you have a relatively high acceptance ratio. Currently your acceptance rate is quite low, so there is not much chance it would be accepted.

    1.2.9 Date


    For photos taken with with a digital camera the exact date is expected to be given. Not submitting the exact date (Month/Day/Year) can lead to a rejection of the photo. Changing of the date is seen as a manipulation of the image.


    Providing a less specific date (Month/Year), will be accepted in some cases. For example when a photo has been taken on a photography sensitive location. In such a case, the photographer is expected to provide the reason for not submitting the exact date, in the Comments to Screeners field.
    Alex, thanks for the guidelines update on a new thread.

    Regarding the quote above, the new website doesn't allow the omission of the specific day. Could this be allowed? This may sound a bit odd to many of you, but under certain circumstances, date can be as sensitive as location, and jetphotos already allows "Undisclosed location" (item 1.2.2).

    Thanks in advance.

    My question if i use clone to get rid of the halos (cloning blue sky near the halos), would it also lead to a rejection and its after effects.

    Thanks for your time.

    Thanks,

    1) most certainly yes
    2) much better solution is to avoid halos in the first place

    Cloning anything in or out of a photo will mean that the photo will be rejected and you are running the risk of your upload privileges being withdrawn or limited for some time

    Does this apply to lamp-posts of anything unnecessary to the photograph? If it's easier to clone out a lamp-post rather than spend ages trying to ensure it's vertical (and thereby risk the photo), is it not better to get rid of it?

    Also, where can I find information on the New upload limits?
    Removing a lamp-post, or any other object such as fence or vehicle, or even filling in part of the frame after rotating an image will lead to an automatic rejection and warning on the first offence, an upload slot reduction on the second, and a complete ban on the third or any further transgressions.

    Upload limits have only changed for new uploaders. Older users will not see any changes other than the availability of upload slots being based on number or recent rejections - your available slots will be calculated as follows: your maximum # of upload slots - # of recent rejections = available slots.

    Thus, if your maximum # of slots is 20, and you have 6 recent rejections, you will have 14 available slots.

    Is this rule about hot photo applicable to all type aircrafts (civilian and military) as well to daylight and night shots?

    following will be accepted as hot
    3. Any change to the colour scheme (for example: removal of a special scheme, new stickers)
    Short answer ? ........ Yes. But only the first image uploaded if there are earlier shots in the database of the previous colours.
