non-compliant images

I recently had 16 images rejected for being "non-compliant images".  Possible reasons include:

-Non compliant use of another artist’s name.

- Undeclared Generative AI Content.

- Content not compliant with overall guidelines 

None of those apply as far as I know. 

They are photos. They are my photos. I didn't use another artist's name. I used no AI-generated content. What overall guidelines do they not comply with? I'll attach images and you can tell me what I need to do differently

The moderator may have selected the wrong reason for rejection. The first and third images especially have issues with shadows that are too deep. Always check your Histogram.

Thank you. That's a quality issue. That's the kind of rejection feedback that I can work with.

 

However, I doubt that moderator(s) selected the same wrong reason for rejection 16 times in a row.

Why not? May be that moderator issued a whole day those refusals. 

If I would implement something like Adobe stock moderation, moderators would push 1 to 6 for a refusal. So a moderator choosing 4 instead of 1 a whole day long...

I was answering Danilelle's statement "The moderator may have selected the wrong reason for rejection." I simply meant that if the moderator made a mistake, it's doubtful they would make an identical mistake 16 more times.

Meaning, the moderator rejected all the images it for a correct reason, just not one that I understand.

The text comming with the refusal is stock text. that does not mean that your asset is AI or anything else, they say. It only means that most of these refusals have one of those reasons.

I get that. When there are quality issues, they list possible reasons, noise, focus, unclear subject, etc. Not all apply, but at least I know what to check in the submission and see if I can improve. If I see a rejection with something to the effect of "Too similar to other images in the collection," that's clear. I need to give more attention to what Adobe's content needs are. In the case of the "non-compliance" rejection, none of those apply. If it's not one of the listed reasons, then it would be helpful to list a reason that actually applies so we can know how to either fix the issue OR what we can do better.

Also, when I read the rules regarding AI content, the images didn't violate any of them. What did I do or not do? I need help to do better, but I'm getting no guidance.

Your images arn't generative AI, so those specific rules do not apply. No need to check them. Noncompliant assets are, when I look at my refusal history, assets, that are impossible to cure. They could have been rejected also under the quality issues.  

 

From the manual:

Files may also be considered noncompliant due to watermarks, inappropriate or irrelevant keywords or titles, or questionable or defamatory content. Also, if you get a reminder to provide or resolve a problem with a release and you resubmit the file without addressing the issue, we’ll reject it as noncompliant. 

 

Bold is mine, I think that should be the reason for your rejection.

Thanks you. I'll see what I can do to improve the quality of the images and resubmit.

 

My main concern is that as I generate more images, I suddenly have to deal with an algorithm flagging my images as AI and require actions on my end to avoid rejection. I'm happy to change what I'm doing, but I want to make sure I know what change I need to make and when.

 

Quick question. If I used AI tools like noise reduction or sharpening, does that make it necessary to declare the image as having AI?

No. Those types of edits would not be considered AI.

By @Thomas_Morris

That won't happen. First, your images do not have the generative AI look, your images look more as being edited incorrectly. Second, humans do the vetting. Third, the refusal reason existed long before generative AI. All of my “non-compliant images” have this stock text, also those from 6 years ago. So look into anything else, except generative AI.

By @Thomas_Morris

Generative AI creates images or modifies images based on a textual description. All other tools are not generative AI, even if they claim to work with AI. That's a buzzword. My spam filter claims to use AI to detect spam. It does not create spam. So no generative AI.

If, by subcategory, you mean Landscapes, People, Food, etc.  I'm quite sure that has nothing to do with reviewing algorithms. We have been told by Adobe multiple times that those categories are a hold-over from the Fotolia days and are essentially meaningless now. Not sure why they don't just eliminate them altogether.

Keywords and titles are a good place to check for a non-compliance rejection.  Making sure they are all in the same language and there aren't any copyrighted or trademarked terms in them.

Ah! I'll recheck those to confirm. Question: If I use the word "shiitake" for a mushroom image, will that get flagged as a different language?

I don't think so, but you should do your own research by googling "blue oyster trademark"

By @Thomas_Morris

You can check such words in a dictionary or Wikipedia or by googling.

Even if you take clearly non-English words, that have found their way into the language, they should be recognized as English, like “ersatz”, which I would have never used, if I had not seen it a lot in English texts.
