Photography Question

Why did I receive message: Photo Removed....?

Hello. I am now taking my 2nd course, & I also have a website through During the past month or 2, I have added various photos to my website, & I have submitted many for the contest. Until now, I never had a problem. When I went to add a photo today (that I had uploaded a few days ago), I this message: Photo Removed or Not Approved. I was a bit confused. One of the pictures involved a musician, but a previous photo of the same musician had no problem (in fact, it was an "editor's pick". The other pictures that I tried to access got the same message (Photo Removed....) - these were completely benign (i.e. photo of flower, photo of clams, etc.). Can someone please help me understand what's happening? Thanks, in advance.

  Well, I think I answered my own question. It seems that in the "Photos" section of the "Admin Center," I accidentally clicked "private" for several photos, rather than clicking "public." Once I corrected this, I was able to access all my photos, & enter one in today's contest. Oops!

  Glad you worked it out Joshua. Anytime you have questions, email our team

By the way, if we ever have to remove a photo due to not falling within our family friendly guidelines, we'll always let you know.

Have fun!

And did you realize you can renew your BetterPholio this weekend during the Super Sale extension and get a free year?

Have a great weekend!
