Hi,

 

The attached photo was rejected by Adobe Stock with the following reason:

"Lighting Issue

Too much light (overexposure) or not enough (underexposure) ..."

You can find the detail of above on this URL:

https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/quality-and-technical-issues.html

 

I'm wondering why is this photo pointed out with this perspective because I can't find any too high/low exposure...

 

Thank you for you advice in advance.

Your photo is a little bit underexposed. You need to increase the exposure in your photo editing programme . Take notice of your histogram.

Hi ricky336,

Thank you so much for your advice.

Indeed the histogram is a bit left-sided. I'll make some adjustment and try once again.

Appreciates!

This is usually due to your display's luminance level set too high. If using a monitor calibrator try setting the Luminace target for 100-120 cd/M2. If you don't have a calibrator use the White Saturation target at he below link and adjust your display's brightness control until you can see at least the 252 or higher squares. You can also check the Black Level target.

Hi Todd_Shaner,

Thank you so much for your advice.

Yes, that's what I'm recently concerned about because the display of my MacBook is usually relatively more lumonois than others.

I'll try adjust it for evaluating the lighting of my photo appropriately.

Appriciates again!

This is why the histogram is so useful, as it gives you a lot of information !
