Some time ago, in a different context, Adobe said that an acceptance rate of more than 50% is good enough. The absolute number of refusals is not important. You should look at the overall ratio of refusals vs. accepted assets. If you have more refusals then acceptances, you should ask yourself, if Adobe stock is really for you.

There is an assumption that a very high percentage of rejects can result in an account being blocked. Moderation of assets is a big expense for Adobe Stock, so Contributors who are spamming Adobe with a lot of low quality assets aren't welcome.

Hi @Razu Ahmad ,

It is most likely inevitable that you will get refusals. You can choose to ignore the refused files and move on to upload new photos or try to find the issues, correct them and resubmit. There are some rejections that you cannot correct. These include badly blown out highlights, badly underexposed images where details are lost and out of focus images. These you do not resubmit. You can avoid similar. If you read through the refusal notice on your contributor page, you will find the rule for similar. It is a maximum of 6 with each having something different or extra for the customer. For example, a bus top, side, front, back, and the next side if there is something different about it. You are also allowed one portrait, one landscape one wide and one closeup of an image. To avoid similar refusal, with the exception of the above, you must not upload the same image multiple times or multiple images that are looking close to each other.

The only time refusals will hurt your portfolio is if you resubmit refused images without correcting the reason for rejection and if you keep submitting similar. Treat non-compliant refusal as a warning in which case if you continue doing what you get a non-compliant warning about your account is liable to be suspended.

Treat your rejections as teaching aid correcting and resubmitting will help you to get better. If you do not know how to identify the issues we are here to help you. As long as you remain in these parameters, refusals will not hurt your portfolio.

Sir, I generate images with AI like Leonardo ai, bluewillow, mid-journey, etc. These can't meet with the Adobe Stock Quality Standers after using Upscale. As a beginner, I can't understand the quality of any, so I upload all the images depending on AI. That's why many of my photos were not accepted. in this case, I'm afraid there will be no loss on my account.

@Razu Ahmad ,

In that case in addition to following the guidelines associated with AI submission you need to zoom in on your images and examine them in details to make sure all the details are accurate before submitting. You can post one or two here for us to help you identify some of the errors.

AI is highly imperfect at details and angles.  Often the images make no sense. You must pay more up front to generate high resolution diffusions which can get costly.  You may need 100 or more diffusion cycles to get 5 suitable artworks.  And then you must have the necessary talent & skills to make corrections.  IMO, AI is a lot harder than most people realize.

 

Maybe you should focus less on AI and try creating more of your own assets,  photography, painting, drawing, illustration, vector graphics or video.  

 

Select 10 of your very best works.  Compare with other Stock inventory to ensure it's as good or better than what Stock has.  Don't submit any assets that or not 100%.  That should reduce your rejection rate.

Hi,

 

I think this should be reconsidered. With a stock agency (it doesn't matter which one) it's the quality that counts, that the guidelines are followed and ultimately you also want to sell the pictures. Lots of photos are not important here. So if it should be ki-generated images, then you should start here and place more value on quality.

Before you submit, please review the submission guidelines carefully and compare your work with other Stock inventory. To be accepted, your work should be as good or better than what's already represented in your keyword category.

If its generative AI based, please look into these instructions and follow them to the letter: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock-contributors-discussions/generative-ai-submission-guidelines/td...

Hope that helps.

I'd love if you can find this information. I don't remember seeing it, and I don't recall reading of it in the agreement or guidelines.
