Hi!

 

I am a newbie here. I uploaded a few pictures to Adobe Stock, and two of them were rejected. The reason given was, "Unfortunately, during our review we found that it contains one or more technical issues, so we can't accept it into our collection." Here are screen captures of the two images. Both were taken with Sony A7RIII and Sony 100-400 GMaster zoom, if that makes any difference. I edited both in Lightroom.

Any guidance any of you can give would be most appreciated!

Thank you,

David

Your post processing far exceeds what a typical stock image should have. Generally, it's best to provide the clean, sharp, color version of your images so that the customer can add any necessary special effects to match their project exactly. When you do extreme processing like this, you limit yourself only to a customer base that wants that specific look.  We have done a number of webinars explaining what sells and when that you may find of use. You can see the recordings here: https://www.crowdcast.io/adobestock...

Wow, the fish slap! That was brilliant, to get the authentic responses! Such a fun and helpful video! My brother and sister-in-law are ophthalmologists, I can hook you up! 😉
