OK....my question is this though...are the editors really looking at the image at more than 100%. Where is the sense in that. If you are seeing distorted pixels at 100% you have seriously distorted pixels. Yep the correction is not that difficult.

Look at it this way:
Dreamstime can upsample the JPEGs, right?
Now if someone wants to upsample the JPEG files then the JPEG would look a little better than it looks on your monitor at 150%. (I'm assuming they apply some sharpening, etc to upsampled files to compensate for loss of details).
In that case the distortion would become serious. And you never know what resolution monitor they are using. On a lower resolution monitor the same file would look apparently bigger. Like viewing on a 300 dpi screen and 180 dpi is very different. Safe to assume they are using something like that.

So inspect photos at 150% - better than way. But if the photos have been shot normally, then fine. This article is mainly for new people editing their photos a bit too much.

this is kinda a funny and annoying artical at the same time.

I dont understand the point of it....this is how you damage your pic. see how damaged it is. but im not gona tell you how to fix it??????

btw: what if u just change the pic u used as an example to b+w. or what if you select the damaged area and desaturate the bad pixles. or what is you use the eraser and run over the damaged pixles?

there is a bunch more ways you can fix it.

I just dont understand this artical?

and i want my time back for reading it and responding. you owe me $1,34.
thank you

It's mainly about telling newbies what distorted pixels is. There are MANY threads about this reaching to no conclusions. That's why I exaggerated the cause.
And Zenpix I owe you nothing because you're a professional from what you've mentioned in your bio.
And I told in the first paragraph professionals should close this. ;)

And surely someone using a compact camera can't run eraser over all the edges in the photo. But they can at least know if they have a problem.
Search for distorted pixels in message boards and see how many threads don't explain what it is.
Maybe it happens due to overprocessing. But it's a different story when you don't use DSLR always.

ok, fair enough. i see what you are doing/saying.
i read it before i had my coffee---it just hit me as funny/strange, at the time.
kinda like the joke,
person says; hey doc it hurts when i do this. (person lifts his elbow)
Doc says: then dont do that.
no hard feelings i hope:)
Your so lucky~~you are in India~~one of the most exotic locals around. You prob can just step ouside your door and find a million things to shoot.

I was bored of writing dead serious articles. And the truth is, 90% of the new guys i know save intermediate files as JPEG. I myself used to too. When I was 13 something. It's worth mentioning.

And that kind of doctors are full in exotic India. Haha! ;)
We feel your country is exotic and you feel ours is. I've been all over India. Pity that I wasn't interested in photos then. Only in wildlife conservation activities. Missed the opportunity. But there isn't a lot of things out here. Whatever there is, is already on dreamstime. I don't even find much time now. Studies are taking almost all my time.
Well if they give me a free credit for a laugh, I'm paying you with a level 0 sale. ;)

As stated in the first comment below, I have wondered if the evaluators are reviewing the images at more than 100 percent. This is why I check all my submissions at 200 percent before I upload them. There is a point if you go higher and higher in you viewing percentage that everything would be rejected as a mess of little squares, and the image itself will be lost in the shuffle.

Agreed.
It depends on monitor. I don't use a big one so I feel comfortable viewing at 200%. An additional check is good, that's all.
But it pays.
You don't have to care much if you use DSLR though.

Personally I think you are missing the forest for the trees if you are checking your images at 200% or higher :) DT has a quick intro on distorted pixels and other problems here: Contributor resources

Not really. I was getting rejection after rejection whenever I used photos from my Canon SX30. So I finally modified the workflow. Got my AR beaten up with experimental images.
But now I'm happy it's fixed.
