Scrabble tiles are trademarked and require a property release, so these probably won't be accepted. They're also not well photographed, poorly aligned and the white background looks too gray and has some debris.

Hello,

One important thing to think about is how can these images be used. How commercial are they? From my point of view, not useful. How useful are Scrabble letters depicting a word ?

 

Have a read of this from Adobe about how to create better photos:

I would also say that black and white images are not often accepted in Adobe Stock.  Customers can always convert full colour images to black and white if that's what they need but not vice versa.

 

Here are some resources that you might find useful:

 

 

Good luck with your submissions and by all means if you get content rejected, please feel free to post your original size image here with the rejection reason and we'll do our best to help.

Hi @Andrea24051453ifk3,

The only way to know if your images will be accepted is by uploading them. If they are accepted they will sell. As was pointed out black and white images are not encouraged. However, because these are scrabble spelling words, I am not sure if they will be accepted. The only way to know is to upload them. 

 

The only thing I note with these is that I think the black is a little dull. I am not sure what the moderator will say. I do not submit black and white at all.

Best wishes

Jacquelin

Scrabble will be an IP violation if there are no technical issues.


I've looked at your first, and it seems to me, that the exposure is incorrect, and it is out of focus. If you can get the characters without the values and make sharp and correctly exposed colour pictures with no other defects on them, they probably will get accepted. If they sell is a different story, but if your text is what is looked at that moment, go ahead. If you are wishing happy Easter, that train has departed for this year.
