    Lucato! As vezes também não consigo entender os critérios adotados na iStock. Já tive um caso da mesma cena ser fotografada na orientação vertical e outra na horizontal. Uma das fotos foi aprovada e a outra rejeitada… Qual a razão já que as condições nas duas imagens são absolutamente identicas?

      Olá Fernando! Bom tê-lo por aqui. Obrigado pela visita e comentário. Pois é, as vezes é meio complicado mesmo. Muitas vezes para mim algumas imagens rejeitas não causariam problema algum em uma impressão off-set e muito menos para web. Quanto ao seu caso creio que as imagens devam ter caído em inspetores diferentes. Mesmo que envie as imagens em lote, não são direcionadas por igual ao mesmo inspetor, então pode ter ocorrido da vertical ter ido para um inspetor enquanto a horizontal foi para outro inspetor.
