It was generated using AI?

If so, the evaluation process should last much longer than 22 days nowdays.

Photos and vector graphics take on average 5  - 10 business days.

Generative AI could take 2 months.  Perhaps longer if you didn't follow the AI submission guidelines to the letter.

For faster turn arounds, submit less AI and more REAL assets. 😉 

 

Hope that helps.

Adobe is routing Generative AI assets to a separate queue, and due to the huge influx of such assets from contributors uploading hundreds at a time, the backlog has grown immensely, now estimated at well over a month. It also appears that a large percentage of those are getting rejected, either for non compliance with the titling and keywording guidelines or for the technical issues caused by the design software.

My last submissions:

Photo 6 days.

Illustrative editorial: 2 days.

Vector: 1 day

 

AI will take currently more than a month. Say thank you to your peers that they submit 500 assets in one stream.

Wait, up to 2-3 months. Sometimes an illustration goes through very quickly, but we don't know if this is a fault.

You need to submit exactly the same moment. BTW: Your friend submitting through your account is not allowed on Adobe stock.

I'm waiting too. I uploaded 4 dozen non-AI images. Didn't take them long to reject a fourth of them, but they haven't accepted any of them.

A 25% reject rate should be taken as a sign that you're not meeting the requirements. Perhaps you should take a close look at the others that you've uploaded and decide whether to delete them and submit higher quality files. A very high reject rate can get your account permanently closed.

Rejection rates of 50% for confirmed accounts (not the first submissions) is a bad sign. People need to read the guidelines.

I agree with Jill_C.  Your rejection rate is too high.  On your present course, you won't be a contributor for long.  😥

 

  1. Choose 10 of your best images  -- highest visual & technical quality, sharp focus, good details, pleasing composition.
  2. Examine each image at 100-300% magnification in Photoshop or similar editor.
  3. Correct all defects if you can.  Discard the ones you can't.
  4. Now compare your very best corrected images with current Stock inventory. 
  5. Are yours as good or better than what Stock has?   If yes, submit. If not, discard. 

That should help to reduce your rejection rate.
