    Default Pixoto.com - anyone ever submit to it?

    A friend showed me this yesterday. It is a site that sells images and pays the artist. What you do is upload an image to the category it belongs in. Your image is than placed in duels with other images. Photographers vote on which of the two they like. Your image is scored based on number of duel wins and the score of the image you beat in a duel. The images are viewed by ranking order, so anyone going to the site to find image to buy, sees the best first (determined by members). You can remove your image anytime and you retain all rights. You can even load images and not offer them for sale, just judged.

    One of my images has taken off after just one day, zooming to the top 10% of the category it is in. It's a nice image, but not one of my best (or favorite). This one from New Orleans, Cafe Du Monde

    Something I forgot to add, as your score goes up, the images that you duel with get better as well. So a new image gets matched with new images. If your image starts getting ranked, the competition gets better.

    My image above went to top 10% in its category, now it is down to top 15%, because of better images it is going against.

    Like I said, members vote on the images.

    They have some amazing images on there.

    What are y'alls names on there, so i can follow you?

    ****EDIT****

    Nevermind, I found both of you, you were following me.

    Funny thing Dale, I voted on your red dome image about 15 minutes ago (before I knew it was you).

    LOL that's funny.

    I found you on there because an image of yours caught my eye (blue-eyed girl in water). I only realized it was yours because of your avatar.

    Its a little addictive.

    You do know you need points to upload images, and you only get points by voting on duels (1 point per vote)?

    There are indeed - some of the higher ranking shots are good. There are also some pretty crappy ones that come up in the voting though.

    I am following both of you.
