Is it possible to see photos of Adobe administrators who refuse to post photos without deep processing in Photoshop, Lightroom and other programs. But there is a lot of criticism and few facts

The primary purpose of this forum is for Contributors to upload some of their rejected images for further feedback from other Contributors as to the possible reasons for rejection. Thus, we see many images here that were refused by the Moderators. In the vast majority of cases, probably 99% or more, the participants in this forum are able to point out, in detail, the rejectable errors, which are generally quality issues such as poor focus, artifacts, composition, under or over exposure, etc.  So

Not sure I understand your question. Virtually all images, whether they're created by a camera or by a Generative AI tool, or by Illustrator, need at least some post-processing. It's not a matter of "Adobe administrators" (I think you meant Moderators/Reviewers) rejecting photos because they think they don't have "deep processing". In fact, they have no way of knowing what post-processing tools you used. They are looking at the quality of the image - is it in focus, are there artifacts, is it under-exposed or over-exposed, etc. If you're lucky enough to get an image straight out of camera that looks perfect without any post-processing, go ahead and upload it. Otherwise, learn how to use post-processing tools.

I understand that some processing is required, especially in RAW formats, but I mean, are people involved in photography really doing moderation? Are these people able to impartially and adequately assess the photos posted by other photographers? That is why I asked about reviewing the moderators' work to evaluate these possibilities

It is quite rare for us to see rejected images that seem to have no errors and should have been accepted into the database.

 

So it does appear that Adobe's Moderators are protecting Buyer's interests and keeping substandard images out of the database. We do not know the hiring criteria for the stock moderators and whether or not they're expected to be experienced photographers. I don't believe one needs to be an expert photographer in order to assess whether an image meets the specified quality criteria.

Who is an "Adobe administrator"?

 

As stock is concerned, moderators (humans, not AI) are checking your submissions. All submissions need processing to get accepted. Indeed, not applying the proper processing is not a sign of quality. 

 

As a contributor you are supposed to submit "perfect" pictures, not "unmodified" ones. We are not here the National Geographic, who expects out of the box perfect pictures.
