We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Adobe already gave you a specific reason for each rejection (such as technical issues, IP infringement, model release needed...) Please don't make us guess! We could waste your time with wrong guesses.
You are correct in one thing you say. They replied with a Technical Issue response.
However, they recommended posting just as I did to find a more detailed response from my 'peers'.
Some, I suppose, are more helpful than others.
Thanks all the same.
Just took a quick look at the first 3: 1) chromatic aberration and noise in the shadows, so probably rejected for "Technical" reasons. 2) black squirrel is poorly focused - very blurry; 3) bus and street scene has many logos, so probably rejected for IP violation.
Thank you very much. This is definitely useful feedback & greatly appreciated.
As a forum volunteer, I don't have time to download and examine all 10 images. I looked at the last image which among other things is not horizontally and vertically aligned. The color is over saturated. And as already mentioned, it contains too many intellectual property issues to be used commercially.
1. Stock photography should be realistic and natural looking, not abstract or tricked up with fancy visual effects & filters.
2. Adobe Stock customers expect highest visual and technical quality for use in their own projects. See links below.
4. Take a look at what other Adobe Stock contributors are doing in the same keyword category. Is your image better than what is already represented? As a Stock customer, would you buy this image? What would you use it for? If the answer to either question is "I don't know," it's probably not right for Adobe Stock.
Better luck next time.
Hi @Dwayne5FF3 ,
I've randomly looked at four. They display the likeness of filters applied, grainy, over saturated, and blurry. Your photos should be as close to natural as possible.

Thanks for the feedback!
You seem to love fancy filters and oversaturated pictures. Don't do that, that does not enhance bad pictures and good pictures get refused for that. Pay attention to logos and other marks that are appearing in your pictures. They won't pass. For people recognizable in your pictures you need a model release.
