massive rejection of submissions (quality issues)

I have had 61 grunge textures not accepted in my last submission. They are accepted on other stock sites with no issues so I know it's not a quality problem. Is it just because they don't want grunge textures anymore on adobe?

Hello,

 I am curious about your screenshot. Is this recent, because the screenshot says submitted 16 years ago.

I'm afraid it's a bit difficult to give any constructive advice from a screenshot.

I checked your account and see that the most recent rejection was on an image uploaded in 2007. 

 

The more recent files you uploaded have been approved.

Just because they were accepted elsewhere does not mean they are of good quality. Standards and reviewers vary. Unfortunately you did not submit the original file or give the rejection reason.

the rejection reason was in the image I attached. I have had other grunge textures approved by adobe with all the same settings as the ones rejected. I have been submitting to stock sites for almost 20 years so I know what is required that's why I am wondering why these are rejected when I have used the exact same process for the approved images.

"I know it's not a quality problem". No you don't. What reason did Adobe give for these 61 rejections? Please give us that and share just 1-2 original images.

You should be a bit less rude when responding to posts or don't bother replying. People aren't here to get attitude from other members.

Perhaps not. Very well, I shall try to use my psychic powers to imagine what the issue might be with images you refuse to share, that I might give an answer which reinforces the view that Adobe have made a mistake. Better?

The rejection reason was quality issues, and you learn that only, when you look into the attached image. You could also have inserted the image in the message (copy past of your screenshot!) and most of this discussion would not happen. You could also have inserted the reason in the text. If @Test Screen Name missed opening your attached picture, they would not know the rejection reason.

 

@Test Screen Name is a long-time user of these fora and provides a lot of useful advice.

Sorry, I should have checked. Adobe TOLD you it was a quality problem. So it is best to accept that it doesn't meet ADOBE'S quality standards and focus on why.

Other sites, other rules. If they got rejected for quality problems, you probably have quality problems. It may be, in rare circumstances, that a moderator choses the incorrect reason.

 

If Adobe rejected because they would think that your textures have no commercial standing, you would get a different refusal reason. Post ONE texture here and we will have a look into that.

Great that there is at least one looking in depth into the refusal posted. I simply assumed that it was a recent refusal... 😄

2023, grunge is out.

 

What's In:

  1. Flat Retro Designs (flower-power, 60's pop, nostalgiac...)
  2. 3D Elements.
  3. Surreal Concepts (Dali, man meets machine, UFOs, AI Diffusion),
  4. Dark mode (UI/UX).
  5. Experimental color pallets, pairing unlikely colors like pastels with metallics/bright neons.
  6. Distorted typography, twisted word shapes & exaggerated fonts.

 

Hope that helps.

Hi @freelancer2023 

1) To receive help here you need to upload 1 to 3 copies of the files that were rejected in the same resolution you upload to Adobe. That's how it works here. We need to inspect the file as the moderators did.

2) The highlighted image of the page you post here says that the image was rejected for unacceptable quality. Therefore you cannot say there was not a quality issue.

3) You cannot make comparison one platform with another. I've seen images with flaws submitted to multiple platforms being rejected by one for genuine focus issue and even got multiple sales on the other platforms. That doesn't mean that the unique platform must drop it's standard to suit the contributor or the other platforms. If Adobe does not want your file you get a "No Commercial Appeal" rejection. If the moderator says there's a quality issue, there is a quality issue.

Best wishes

Jacquelin
