    Equalizing will absolutely make it easier to spot such discrepancies, but it really needs to be visible normally to be an issue. If you can notice the corners are darker (or lighter) in the normal version, a rejection is likely - if you can't, then not. If the imbalance (vignetting) is really very slight, then it shouldn't be an issue.
    Ok I will do some practice and try to process those photos again. Thanks a lot for your advices. They are of great help to me.

The “check for dust” function (provided by JetPhotos website when I upload my pictures) is pretty useful but I don't know how to use computer software to simulate it before uploading. Besides,is it acceptable if I retain slight dark corners in order to avoiding overprocessing?

I really appreciate your careful guidance,and very sorry for my poor post processing techniques.

    Quality looks ok to me.

    You can, but the more you post, the more likely those requests are to be ignored.
