Rejected because of technical issues.

Very unclear. I followed all the rules and still got rejected. Why?

Seems to be a constant with everyone who submits stock photos. What gives?

Not constant and not everyone because my latest submissions got accepted.

============

@Mike Cressy 

That's a patently false statement.  Stock receives hundreds of asset submissions each week.  Many we never hear about.  The good ones are accepted.  The ones that don't meet Stock's submissions requirements are rejected for various reasons  -- i.e technical issues, an unacceptable file type, commercial value, property & model releases, etc..

 

Without seeing your images, and knowing what the reviewer's rejection reasons were, we can't help you except to say, read your Stock Contributor User Guide carefully.  There is important information there to help you.


Start with these links.


Better luck with your next submission. 🙂

Rejections are absolutely not a constant; otherwise Adobe Stock would be out of business for lack of any saleable images. There are many millions of images in the Adobe Stock database and many Contributors have thousands of images in their portfolios. Experienced photographers who have the skills to capture and edit their images to the necessary quality level have a high rate of acceptance. My acceptance rate over the last couple of years is >95%, though initially when I was learning what constituted acceptable quality it was a bit lower.

If you'd like feedback, feel free to post a full sized photo.

 

Remember that you're not hearing from those whose photos are accepted.  Adobe probably reviews hundreds of photos a day.

Hi @Mike Cressy,

Zoom in on your photos to between 100 and 200%. Look for the following:

Noise grains,

Color fringing on the edges

Blotches of colors

Lost details because of areas being too dark or over exposed

Soft subject edge (The edges of your subject must be completely sharp for easy cropping)

Blurred subject (Out of focus)

Color cast (White balance issue)

The photo looking a bit dull or slightly gray (Under exposed)

If you ID any of the above you need to make correction. Until you upload at least one of your rejected photos here these responses are the best you'll get.

 

Best wishes

Jacquelin
