Hi there, so recently I faced some more rejections on my content so I just want to seek your insights on them to identify the underlying issues.

Are you designating these as photographs or illustrations? One of the annoying things about AI is that it sometimes generates what I call, for lack of a better description, hybrid images that have qualities that are both photographic and illustrative, rather than going with one or the other. 31, 47, and 24 fall into this category. For example, the pumpkins in 24 looks real, but the eyes look like illustrations. 47, on the other hand, has all the qualities of an illustration, but if you are submi

In addition to @daniellei4510  comments, zoom in and look at the carved mouths in image #47. There are angles and shadows that don't make sense. In #24 there are also numerous carved elements that don't make sense.

After editing what you believe are the needed corrections, submit them again as if you were doing so for the first time. Even if the image is eventually accepted, it will still remain in the reject section as a painful reminder of your past failures. 🙂

As @daniellei4510  said, resubmitting is the same process as the original submission; however be careful to not submit previously rejected images without having re-edited them to try and address the flaws for which they were rejected. Resubmitting the exact same rejected image can get you accused of spamming the system, and repeated spamming occurrences can get your account suspended.

In any case, it has some minor issues that need correcting, like the little chunk missing at the top of the pumpkin on the left.

As for the child, the irises need to be rounded out and brightened a bit and the zipper on the coat is unrealistic. Maybe generative fill might turn the jacket into a pullover, since a realistic zipper would be difficult to generate.

I marked them as "photographs" except 47  as it seems to be an illustration. So the point is what about those that also look the same as the shared one but are now in my dashboard, if share one of them with you, you can also find mistakes. I find it perplexing that some of the images I had doubts about were accepted, while the ones I was confident about have been rejected by Adobe. I'm struggling to comprehend the criteria they use. If you'd like to review the images that were accepted, I can also share those with you for verification.

Welcome to the club. My advice is, do the best you can and don't stress the rejections. Let them go for now and come back to them in a two or three months. Concentrate on new submissions.

 

I've only recently started looking at my rejected images and started putting some effort into fixing what I believe were the reasons for being rejected. They've been in the rejected pile for months. Three of them have since been accepted and there is no better feeling (well...there ARE better feelings, but let's not go there) than having a rejected image finally accepted after fixing the issues. Issues that I didn't KNOW were issues then, but that are obvious to me now. You'll learn what those issues are after you've been submitting for awhile.

 

But yes. Unless it really, really really looks like an actual photograph from corner to corner, designate it as an illustration. As far as I can tell, this is information that only moderators take into consideration and are not obvious to potential buyers, who could care less if it's an illustration or a photo, so long as it suits their purposes.

Do you mean to "Resubmit" the rejects OR to submit them from the beginning again?
as I never upload the rejected file again, so I'm not familiar with the resubmission procedure.

By @Jill_C


      Yes, of course! You may already be aware to chat with me about how terrified or anxious I become about rejections; nonetheless, I view them as nightmares, therefore I will definitely be more careful on Resubmitting to not do anything wrong intentionally.

Let me add this: As I mentioned, labeling an image as either a photograph or illustration is really only for a moderator's reference and not made obvious to the buyer. However, I do in fact title my images as illustrations if they were so designated (e.g., "An illustration of...") or, if I chose Photograph, I title the image "A portrait of..." or "An image of..." as a way of letting the buyer know what they are purchasing. I do NOT title an image "A photograph of..." because I believe this would be misleading.

Yes, i also do the same thing in Photos by starting my Tittle with "Portrait", so it would be easier for buyer to recognize.

But keep the title as descriptive as reasonable. It will help the search algorithm.
