I ordered a nice SLR and will be getting a lens for it soon. In the meantime though I have thousands of photos I have taken with my Powershot SX10 IS. It takes decent pictures but they all suffer from chromatic aberration and just aren't as sharp as an SLR. Are these going to be rejected simply because of that or is the subject and content going to be the deciding factor?

You just have to upload some images to try the waters!

It's hard to tell you, if we can't see image with 100%.

If rejected, you can ask reviewers for more explanation.

Good luck with your images!

Realistically, if you can tell they aren't sharp and have visible CA, they probably will be tough to get approved. You'll likely have a few shot where those weren't problems, tough.

In my opinion, the photos are rejected for the chromatic aberration and the lack of clarity, I owned a Canon G9 and the many images have discarded for these reasons that you expose yourself,bye!

Don't get discouraged so easily!

On the other hand, don't take the pictures as they were taken from the camera and try to upload them.

Open each picture in Photoshop. I assume they were saved at the highest compression level.

There are so many things you can do to make the pictures stock worthy I can't even try to explain here. There are so many articles and post you can read.

In general for a picture out of a pocket camera you will most likely need:

Shrink the picture to 6, 5, 4 or even 3 MP, clean the noise, use levels, curves, color balance and sharpen the necessary areas.

If you are unfamiliar with the words above, start reading and most of all - enjoy the work.

Hi, I've recently joined as well and had the same thoughts but many of my shots were with a G7 which have been accepted and even sold, I agree with Hugoht, you can clean things up alot on photshop.

Hi there. I have an SX1 IS, so I'm in the same boat as you. I have yet to submit, as well, but don't have the option to upgrade anytime soon.



I also have thousands of shots, and most are never going to be stock, because I didn't initially realize the value of shooting at the lowest ISO, and highest resolution, + RAW. I have some wonderful subjects that I can't use for stock - but they are still good for other uses, locally.





I've read more than one post where a higher-end point&shoot was used for all shots and they were accepted. I'm sure that "right-in-camera" techniques along with careful editing were used though.



All the best,



M.M.

Chromatic aberration issues can usually be fixed with ACR or software like DXO optics, so give it a try :-)

Generally speaking I have my best luck getting photos approved from my canon g10. I also have a sony DSC W350-very compact but tougher to get photos approved. A new DSLR should help a lot.

I had a Nikon Coolpix for a while (it finally died) and many of my images were taken with it. In fact, my best selling image was taken with it. So don't get discouraged too easily. Use a software program (LR 3 also has a pretty good CA repair function) to clean up your images and sharpen them as other people have suggested.



While SLRs obviously have a leg up on point and shoot cameras, that doesn't mean that you can't take good pictures that will sell with a point and shoot. I found that using the optical zoom was a terrible thing, and tried not to at all costs.



Hope this helps!

The job is easier with the right equipment. Like building a house with a hammer, when a nail gun is faster.

I started off with an Olympus point and shoot...great camera that was :) The focus was amazing. All of my first images were accepted with it. it was the days when i didnt even know what noise was so i dont know if it had it. Things have changed now and it is much more difficult to get an image passed. I dont think I would get images through inspection without retouching with my old Canon 350 either. That camera puts so much noise in the sky. My Canon 5D is a dream. Good luck with your new camera.

If the situation is not complicated (indoors with low light, for instance), point and shoot generate good stock images, I have many here and they still keep being approved.



On the other hand, some of my DSLR pictures are rejected for technical reasons, of course its easier with the DSLR, but its not a magical solution.



You still need to check your images at 100% and do your best on post processing, preferably from a RAW file, to generate a noise free, sharp, but not too much, colorful, but not over processed, image.



If the composition is really good, they might even accept a not so flawless image.



I wish you lots of fun with your new camera!

I don't have an SLR, and well my success rate isn't high, but I think now that I know my camera's best forte (which is taking photos of large subjects from a distance), I shouldn't have as much of a problem. :D

The earliest shots in my portfolio where taken with more basic equipment and I had an acceptance ratio of about 15%, getting better equipment helps but also getting to know your way around say photoshop also can really help. Knowing how to check for CA or noise and knowing how to correct this makes a big difference. Check all your shots prior to submitting at 100% and learn from rejections. Saying all this my best selling shot so far was taken with a 4mp Casio EXLIM point and shoot ( quite a cheap and poor camera ).    Great Wall of China   





Keep at it and good look :-)

I now have my 7D and really love the new camera. Still learning to use Lightroom though. I am more used to Photoshop so I am starting from scratch with LR.

to make very good quality pictures you need a good lens to for your SLR. The price for a competitive zoom lens start from around $500. if the buget is a big factor i advice to buy a fixe lens ... say 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4.

I have two lenses so far. I went with the Canon 24mm 2.8 and the Canon 60mm 2.8 Macro. Both lenses seem very sharp with the slight edge going towards the 60mm.



I am really hooked on primes but just ordered my first zoom, the Canon 70-200mm f/4 L. I really wanted the f/2.8 or IS version but they cost more than twice as much.
