i don't think you understand, those other rejections weren't due to a photo's use, they were due to the usage of the name "Rushmore"

a photo for the basis of a rejection is only valid if the photo cannot be proven to be either public domain or belonging to the person using it. in this case the poster took the photo HIMSELF--which means he is the owner of it, and will not be rejected for that.
in those other cases on this site where you see "photo" being the reason for rejection, the poster had stolen the image from someone else--be it through a google image search or an artist's site. these images were never claimed to be owned by the poster, nor had the photographer's consent to be used on this t-shirt.

I also thought using traced photos wasn't allowed. I stand corrected I guess. Is there any place where woot states this so we can know for sure? This way we can just link people who think you were not allowed to do this (like me at first).

Re: dig it


Live Trace is a wonderful thing but as I have learned from past entries you can't use it to create your entry they do not allow photo conversion. Plus If you use a photo you are stealing from the photographer, (unless you took the picture) you had a great Idea but next time try drawing it instead of running a photo through a vector conversion program.

uh...I DID take the photograph, as I have repeatedly said on this and the original two times I submitted it. The very first entry I made with MY OWN PHOTO, I did live trace. When I withdrew it, and resubmitted a new version, I explained that I was redrawing it by HAND because the live trace didn't turn out too well. When woot rejected the resubmission, for the TEXT, not the photo source OR my drawing job, I changed the text, changed the color of the shirt, and changed much of the color of the drawing, as well as editing it in several ways.

Basically, you are chastising me despite the fact that I did everything you want me to have done. Feel free to try online to find my photo- It's possible someone else took a similar one, because they only let you go to certain areas at Mt Rushmore, but this one I took.

Just so you know woot doesn't always list every reason they reject for.... they only need one. Your catching flack bc it's apparent it's a livetrace whether or not you actually hand traced it or not it looks like it and people see it as a copout bc there are so many artists that work very hard to make their piece. That's not to say you didn't work hard on this, it's just livetrace's rep.

It just isn't live traced.
If you look at the rejection reason, I'd like to know how you can infer any reason other than the one he gave for the rejection?
