Hi,

I am new to Stock and to test how it works, I submitted one of my photos. It took 6 days to review and it was rejected for the below reason! This was my first submission, how could it be similar to my other submissions?

 

"Thanks for giving us the chance to consider your image. Unfortunately, during our review we found that it's similar to another image(s) you've already uploaded, so we can't accept it into our collection.

Images must be different enough to provide additional value to our customers. We can't accept more than three color variations of the same image or similar images, and models must appear in different situations or with different expressions to be considered. Please be selective and submit only the very best from each image series.

 

[moderator cured the topics, please select only relevant ones]

The message can also mean that there are already similar images in the Adobe Stock database submitted by other Contributors. They really should change the message text !

 

The message could also be an error on the part of the Moderator; sometimes they just hit the wrong button when reviewing images. It might have been rejected for technical issues. If you would like to upload it here, the Community members can provide additional feedback.

What did you submit?

Did you compare your image with current Stock Inventory? 

Does Stock contain 20 million or more of those?

It's a dog photo. I searched the inventory and can see so many photos of the dog similar to mine but how come all those so many images were approved, they are more similar to each other than mine. it just doesn't make sense.

 

here is mine on a different platform: https://www.flickr.com/photos/maryammoarefvand/49543834302/

Nice dog picture, but there are some quality issues. Example: I think, from what I see, that the eyes are not sharp. The picture has been taken at 400 dpi, that makes it unnecessarily noisy. 

 

If there are many pictures of a subject in the database, moderators tend to be more eager to reject. But rejection is part of the life. Check the requirements an submit a different picture.

 

Chose for the fist uploads your really best pictures, check exposure, noise, sharpness, chromatic aberration etc before submitting.

Thank you Abambo, you are right,  I did not pay much attention to the technical side of it, as it was just a test. I will check the links you sent me. 

 

I think they need to correct the communication in relation to reasoning! It somehow takes away your trust in reviewing process.

@MaryamMoarefvand,

To answer your questions, Stock is a business, not social media.  Stock customers are #1.  Contributors are #2. 

 

Dogs and other images were grandfathered in from the Fotolia collection when Adobe acquired Stock several years ago.  Since then Stock's inventory has exploded to over 300 million assets. So they can afford to be more selective about what they accept now.

 

As is customary in the royalty-free assets business, Adobe assesses sales demand with available inventory and makes appropriate adjustments.  When they see too many dog images and no sales demand for them, they stop accepting new dog images.  Inventory that never sells is eventually deleted.

 

Hope that helps.  Good luck with your next submission.
