Hi everyone, I cant seem to get my images uploaded to stock, due to quality standards. I use an iphone 11 pro. Does anyone have tips to get my images passed easier through improving the quality? Should i use/ not use portrait mode?
This image is blurry, underexposed, poorly composed and has a bright blownout hotspot. While it's not impossible to get iPhone images accepted, you will need to have ideal light, such as a bright sunny day, which is not what you had in this case.
Of course, if you could fix the quality, it would be rejected for IP violation. You can't submit photos of your Mac !
Your picture is underexposed as shown on the histogram:
You have heavy clipping of the blacks, meaning that absolutely no information is left:
You have a high noise level:
And as @Test Screen Name has said, as soon as Apple is recognizable, it won't pass. You need to edit out typical Mac keys.
And as for your question: you should not use portrait mode, as the iPhone really does a poor job on that if you look at the details.
