    not sure, but your photos are not showing for me - and if they rejected your photos why are the links to their site?
    hxxp://www.istockphoto.com/app_sample_view.php
    is the start of each of the 3 photos

    Wonder if istockphoto don't like people hot-linking. The link is in the HTML for the page, but it's not showing for me either. Not a Saudi firewall issue for a change as I can get to their home page.

    Why can't you?

    I smell a rat here, one that's eaten an awful lot of spiced ham

    the flickr links are also not working for me (strange that ususally flickr works) but when I follow the links the photos are only 110*83 pixels in size - far too small if that was the size you uploaded to istock

    For ease of viewing. To be honest, I can't imagine these being saleable to anyone. Can I suggest that you take a close look at some of the larger more established stock agencies (not the micro-stocks) and assessing what the required quality is likely to be.

    That's easy... most stock sites require that they be at least 1600X1200 pixels (these are 14 times smaller per side)... Did you read through the requirements?
