Hi

I have a file rejected as SIMILAR IMAGE(S) ALREADY SUBMITTED.

I only have one other swallow image in my portfolio, and now a sunflower rejected with the same comment. I understood and have seen many variations of other swallows/sunflowers from others.

Has the rules changes from upto 3 ? None of my photos are the same. Swallows are differnt pair, from a different place, different cable different week. Or does this mean similar photos on the Adobe website from others?

I look forward to your comments

Thank you

Deirdre

Different cables? So you already have picture of swallows by a cable? Sounds like they are saying one is enough. They aren't checking for identical, but for similar pictures where you should just choose and submit the best one.

It could be both -- too many similar images already in Stock inventory.

 

Successful Stock contributors have a diverse portfolio of various subjects to appeal to a wider customer base.  If all you do is birds, you won't reach people who are searching for other subjects.

It's up to the moderators to accept the pictures and I don't know how they get to the "similar image refusal" decision, but it seems, that there may be two reasons:

  • Too many similar images in your portfolio
  • Too many similar images in the database

 

Similar means not the same, but a similar situation. You need to be really selective and submit your best pictures first. And it normally helps, not to send them all in the same batch.

ok, thank you, I guess I better not take anymore swallows/birds on cables. To chose the best I would need to keep them for a season. Many thanks,

Thank you for your comment. I only had 1 other swallow photo on Adobe. So,
I assume there must be too many others on the system. This was an
isolated photo and taken at a later date than the 1st one. That is what
confused me.
Many thants
