Isolated yes, isolated no

posted on 28th of july, 2011

Hello friends! I am writing this blog in hopes of being useful. Surely many of you have read a recent blog written by a dreamstime's admin. It is about "isolated" word in stock language. As it has already happened to the word "vector" for illustrations, today it happens for the word "isolated". If an image is not perfectly isolated on a solid background the image will be refused if it contains "isolated" on title, description and/or keywords. I can say it for sure because today an image of mine was refused for this reason. By removing the word isolated my image has been accepted.
If you do not want your images to be rejected because of this reason, be careful not to make this mistake.
Sorry for my bad english and hope to be useful :-)
Ciao, Francesco

This is the image refused because it contains a small shadow

and this is an image perfectly isolated

That's very helpful, Francesco! I've not had this problem myself but I don't have that many isolated images, so it's very good to know that this could be an issue. Thanks for sharing!

As I started recently to upload isolated item, I alway cut the shadow ;) of my objects. So I think I do not need to review my keywords.
