Requirements for Image Keywording
Our search engine indexes words in the title and keywords and analyses them to provide our customers the most relevant images.
It is very important to describe the images accurately with the words which actually represent your artwork in the best way.
We do not allow spamdexing. If you often use irrelevant titles, descriptions and keywords for your images, your Artist account will be closed and all the images will be rejected.
Additional Restrictions
We also do not accept the following images:
images that are too simple, which everybody can create themselves in a couple of minutes
a lot of similar images of one series
images of plain flags or official insignia
scanned images of single postage stamps
the images with low commercial value, or if we have too many similar images already
pornographic, obscene, or otherwise unsuitable or unlawful images
Releases
Model Release: If your image includes recognizable people, you must upload model releases for each person displayed. The model release must be signed by the model or by the guardian for minors.

Property Release: If your image shows the interior of a private building or other private property, you must upload a property release signed by the owner of this property.

For your convenience here are some release forms that you can download, print and fill out. If you have your own ones, you can use those as well, but they have to be essentially the same. We accept releases from other microstock photo agencies as well.
