This is my first post in this forum. The above photo was rejected sighting 'Intellectual Property Refusal' as the reason. Any insights on what that means? Screenshot of the rejection message attached below -
Hello, it's probably because of the lighthouse, as it is part of the photo rather than part of the landscape, so you would probably need a release for the lighthouse.
Bear in mind that Adobe Stock is for commercial purposes and the lighthouse is property, so permission would be needed to use its imagery.
I don't think that the lighthouse is the cause. My first guess would go for the clothing and especially a small logo somewhere. As the picture does not show enough detail, I could only guess that there is a mark on the belt of the backpack.
Thank you for that. There was indeed small logos on the sun glasses and the backpack.
