More than 16 of my photoes were rejected. 

However, I could not receive any explanation of the reason for rejection.

I hope you explain in detail the reason for rejection (ex. file size issue, creative issue, aesthetic issue, etc...).

Adobe gave you an explanation. Adobe will not explain more. That would take them time, which is money. As a potential supplier, these are the terms you work under. However if you share a few pictures (2-3 only, as full originals, not reductions) the experts here often are able to give useful advice. For each picture it is vital that you tell us Adobe's rejection so we do not waste your time with guesses.

Normally when you click on one of the photos, on the right side it shows the reason why it has been rejected (technical issues, Intellectual property refusal, Aesthetic or commercial appeal, etc.) one of them is also Non-compliant file where adobe finds that the content doesn't comply with the Contributor Agreement. If you could show the reason for the rejection and the photo in question, maybe we could help you here 🙂

Hi @holinesscode ,

We are sorry to hear about your rejections. Please note that the forums are monitored mainly by photographers and volunteer ACPs who have no access to your account. For this reason you need to upload your rejected images here for us to inspect. Otherwise this is what you do.

Zoom your file to between 100 and 200%

Look for grains mainly in the darker areas, sky or on skin tone. 

Look to make sure the colors are smooth - black is all black etc.

Check the highlighted areas for color fringing on the edges (usually blue, or purple)

Check for halo around the edges

|Check the edges to make sure they are sharp all around. This is necessary for easy cropping.

Make sure the subject is not blurry

Check the shadow areas to make sure details are visible.

Check for proper exposure. If the frame seem a bit grey or hazy, then it might mean that it is underexposed. If details are lost then that means image is overexposed.

Check to make sure highlights are not so bright that details are lost, and shadows and black areas are so black that details are lost.

Remove writings/prints.

Provide model release for people, and property release for private property.

Hi @holinesscode,

Until you show us the image and tell us the rejection reason Adobe gave you, this is an unanswerable question. We can't guess what's going on.

 

In the meantime, read the following articles.  They may help you understand more about what's expected from you.  Technical reasons may include but are not limited to picture quality, composition, contrast, focus, color balance, color saturation, depth-of-field and detail.

 

See Stock Contributor User Guide:  Content Requirement

 

Compare your images with other Stock images in your keyword category.  You might pick up tips from seeing what other contributors are doing.

 

Hope that helps.
