Hi everybody ,
i have uploaded multiple picutres on but none are getting accepted..
(those are just 3 out of 7) but none are accepted
i dont know what the problem is. Could you please tell me what the problem is ?
if you have the time, maybe explain it as easy as possbile thank you 🙂
I even read the "how to" but thats not a really good help for me tbh.
Adobe told you the reason. It may be a general message, but it is very important. What did they say for each picture, please? If we guess, we could just waste your time.
They said "Quality Issues".
Could be quality issues.
1. Underexposed right half of picture with distracting overexposed spots.
2. Nothing is in focus, except shallow part of rocks. Blurry flora on foreground.
3. Insect is in focus, but everything else is messy and distracts from subject.
DSC05064.jpg - depth of field is too shallow, causing most of the image to be out of focus. It's also underexposed in the shadows.
DSC05388.jpg - again DOF is too shallow and nothing is in focus
DSC05419.jpg - not in focus, not well composed
While practicing your photography and editing skills can be fun and useful, Adobe already has many millions of floral images in the database, so the chances of yours ever being sold are very slim, even if they're technically perfect.
so you are saying its kind of pointless to upload flora and fauna pictures because there are way to many?
I agree with @Jill_C -there are gazillions of such photos. They absolutely need to stand out from the crowd. Yours, unfortunately, do not. So, basically, it is rather pointless. However, it is a good subject to practise on!
"so you are saying its kind of pointless to upload flora and fauna pictures because there are way to many?". Exactly. If there are 20 million flower pictures, well... people only buy pictures that they find with a search. What are the chances that yours will ever appear in a search? Nobody sees it, nobody buys it. If you have something original it might work, so long as you can think of the keywords that people will use. For example you might take a great, unusual, picture of flowers in an umbrella stand. But, unless someone searches for flowers in umbrella stand they still won't find your pic. Making successful stock is all about trying out searches, and imagining you're a customer. Only then get the camera out.
Fauna can work. But again, the keywords are everything. Zebra? 300,000 pics. Laughing zebra, though? "Just" 1500. Look at the competition - can you do a better laughing zebra, or a unique composition of one? Forget cats and dogs though. There are more of them than flowers.
Exactly. Search for "White flower" for instance and you will see that there are >11 million matches. What is going to make your white flower image float to the top of this heap and get noticed by a Buyer? Search for "red rose" and you'll get >3.5 Million gorgeous results. There's simply too much competition. This doesn't mean you should stop photographing pretty flowers whenever you see them; just don't waste the time editing, titling, keywording and submitting to Adobe Stock. If you come across some particularly rare and exotic specimens and you can cite the common name as well as the Latin name, you might have a greater chance of sales.
Thank you for your answer and your input.
