Contributions getting rejected due to "badly formatted", similar ones went through

had successfully submitted still frames for a music video of and even tagged a person in one of them successfully:

Music Video #1 (all accepted)

https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/220930-172528-007802

https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/220930-172612-630402 (successfully tagged an individual in this one)

https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/220930-172646-551702

However, when doing the same thing for other videos all of these following contributions are getting rejected to "bad formatting" and I don't understand why:

Music Video #2 (all rejected)

https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/220930-222640-644002

Can somebody help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?  My process on "music video #1" which accepted my edits is the same I used when trying to add stills of other music videos.

Hi xenawarriorPrince-

 

The images were not accepted as they do not follow our format guidelines,  they look blurry. If the original material is intended to look this way, please let me know, so I can approve them.

 

Cheers!

@Bethanny​ thanks for looking into this!  I know some of the ones that were accepted were 1920x1080 where as a lot of these older 90s videos are in filmed in 4:3 (usually 640x480p with these).  These stills are straight from an official DVD release of theirs and I don't believe they were ever available in HD resolution.  Perhaps they saw the lower resolution of these snaps and assumed they were cropped or downsized?  I hope I'm getting the gist of it, I appreciate you reaching out. Thanks!
