When I submitted my photos to Shutterstock, they rejected them because: Image contains excessive noise, film grain, compression artefacts, and/or posterization.
I don't really know what this means. But I don't mind not knowing so long as I can find out how to not do it.
I want to find out if using the manual or semi-manual settings on my current camera are sufficient. While I'm at it, using the manual settings on my camera will get me ready for the DSLR camera I'm planning to get in 2020 or 2021. It's no use me investing in such expensive equipment if I don't know how to use it.
