Adobe gave you a reason. Please tell us what it was so we can hopefully expand on it.

Adobe didn't give any reason for the rejection, just their standard wording.

There is always a reason. For example "quality issues" which tell us that it doesn't meet their quality standards. Please read this "standard wording" for us.

Yes the reason is Quality Issues with the following wording:

"Common issues that can impact the technical quality of images include exposure issues, soft focus, excessive filtering or artifacts/noise. Learn more about our technical requirements here.

Hello,

Well, did you read the 'technical requirements' link?

'Photography and video technical issues include but aren’t limited to

White balance: The white balance may be too warm or too cool.

Note:

When you shoot in raw formats, you have great flexibility to adjust the white balance in your post-processing workflows.'

 

Don't forget about white balance!

Read this about adjusting white balance:
https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography/discover/white-balance.html

 

Secondly, if you don't submit full sized images to Adobe Stock, then there is no point in submitting them!

Attached is the full-size image (9,567KB, Adobe Support will not enable uploading  the actual full size of 23 MB ). Please review and advise why was it rejected? Due to White Balance? Thanks a lot.RocksF3.jpg

Hello, Ricky,

According to Adobe Stock submitted images should be greater than 4MB. So why would you recommend on submitting huge full-size images of 20-23 MB. Please advise. Thanks!

Because:

"Learn more about the Adobe Stock review process, and see how to create better photos for Adobe Stock with seven tips for success.  

  • Image format: JPEG 
  • Color space: sRGB
  • Minimum image resolution: 4MP (megapixels)
  • Maximum image resolution: 100MP (megapixels)
  • Maximum file size: 45MB (megabytes)"

 

The more information a file contains, the more one can do with the file. 

Also, don't confuse MB with MP!

 

If you can upload a file size of 45MB, then why only upload a measly 4MB?

I'm surprised that Adobe even continues to accept such small file sizes given the fact that most prosumer and professional DSLR's produce files that regularly exceed 20MB. There is absolutely NO good reason to reduce file sizes when submitting to Adobe, and many reasons to submit the largest file that your camera can produce. Buyers may want to use an image in a billboard, or a poster or a large artwork. Or they may want to crop into the image and use just a small section of it.

This appears to be a downsized image, because when I zoom in on it to inspect more carefully, it's very pixelated; therefore, no opinion as to its suitability for Stock can be formed. In particular, focus and noise can't be evaluated. If you want useful opinions as to why it was rejected, please upload in full size.

Why don't you submit full size images? Doing so increases your chances of a sale. If you zoom in on this image, you'll see how quickly it becomes pixelated. 2023-04-01-Rocks3.jpg

 

Additionally, the image has a White Balance issue - too blue as indicated above by @Nancy OShea

Hello Jill,

OKAY, As recommended by ADOBE community experts I have started submitting full-size images as well as taking good care of White Balance. Looking forward to seeing ADOBE review verdict. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Without seeing a full-sized image or knowing what the stated rejection reason was, I'll take a wild guess that white-balance was one reason.
