Hello Community!

 

I am new to Adobe stock and am still learning what is making my photos unacceptable.  I have a feeling the main problem is that they were not initially taken with the best quality camera settings.  After trying to fix them, they are still being rejected for quality issues.  I'd love to get some feedback on how to make these acceptable.  Thank you!!

Focus is not sharp.  Edges are too soft. 

 

Overall image quality is not good enough for professional printing on such things as posters, calendars, billboard ads, T-shirts, etc...

 

Good photography begins with proper equipment (25-45 megapixel camera), adequate lighting and good depth-of-field.  For close ups in low light settings, a stable tripod and remote shutter control are helpful to reduce unwanted motion & blur.


Adobe Stock customers expect the highest visual and technical quality for use in commercial projects.  Read these links.


Better luck with your next submission. 🙂

1. Soft focus, blown out areas

2. Depth of field is too shallow causing most of the image to be out of focus. You could also have composed to eliminate that distracting metallic thing in the background.

3. Too much us out of focus and you have white halos along the edges of branches 

4. Not a pleasing background and halos along the edges 

 5. Poor focus, lack of detail, artifacts

 

plants and flowers are good for practice, but don't even bother submitting them unless you have something unique and technically superior. The Adobe stock database is already saturated with such images
