Hi,

I just got rejected pinhole camera shots, i've posted as a contributor. One of them with lot of filters and other fx applied 🙂

Is there a way to have pictures like that in portfolio? Post it as illustration? Mark it as "artwork" or something?

Probably not. Stock is not for pinhole cameras or those old lenses with the nice defects. Stock is more about clean images, sharp with no defects. Anything other will be unusable for the buyer.

Your use of the word "portfolio" suggests you see this as a kind of gallery for your interesting work. It isn't. This is a commercial way for Adobe to license photos to buyers with high expectations but often no technical knowledge. Your work may be art, but it also has to be technically perfect.

Thanx. You're damn right. But .... Your use of word "commercial" suggests buyers should be the ones to decide what they pay for. They aren't 😉

I think Adobe are filtering out all the things that naive consumers may reject, to preserve their reputation for quality. At least, that's how I read it. It means that some kind of content just won't appear at all because it's impossible to meet the standards. For example, some wild animals are very rare and so all existing photographs of them are imperfect... so, nothing in stock. It also isn't encyclopedic.

Hello,

Photos on Adobe are for commercial purposes. Commercial is the keyword here. It is a buyer's market. There is probably no demand for pinhole type cameras. The image quality will probably not meet the quality control standards that Adobe wants. Even smartphone pictures often don't make the cut! Reason - Quality.

Stock market is very specific. If you want to sell art, you need to find a different plattform. This is th ecase with all providers in this market.

Hi Fredrixxon,

It would be easier analyzing your work and to highlight the possible reasons for rejection if you upload to this thread a copy of the images rejected. That will help you to quickly learn what will or will not be acceptable. In general however, filtered images are very likely to be rejected if they are not looking natural. 

 

For those who have access to Adobe Portfolio (Pt), they have the option to create collections.

 

Regards
