This rejection reason is used if you submit too many from one photo session at a time and the Moderator judges that they are not unique enough. This can be avoided by not loading them all at the same time, or culling your picks before uploading. It could also means that there are other similar images already in your portfolio.

Hey jill
I have the same problem. An image was rejected because of its resemblance to another, even though it was photographed in portrait instead of landscape. This is very essential for customers who need complete freedom in their design.
Do you have any idea why the jurors judge different image formats to be too similar?
Thanks

@Michael-Raubold,

DO NOT submit portrait and landscape versions of the same image.  It's considered duplication or worse, spamming.  Why?  Because Stock customers can crop landscape images to whatever size and aspect ratio they require.  They don't need you to do that for them. 

 

Hope that helps.

@Sebastian Jakimczuk,

Without seeing the rejects, we cannot comment.  But maybe Adobe Stock already have too many in THEIR database.    For example, Stock already have plenty of sunsets/sunrises, clouds, kittens, puppies, flowers, leaves & abstract backgrounds for several lifetimes.

and here are the rejected images (there´s is a photo of the same bird in the portfolio, but it´s a different shot, angle, etc... i don´t think that it can be accused of being similar) DSC_8424-1.jpgDSC_8200-11.jpg

The bird has got probably the wrong refusal reason. It should have been refused for technical issues:

  • noise
  • multiple dust pattern, like here:

Nancy, your advice regarding not submitting both portrait and landscape is contradicted by Adobe's own guidelines published here (see point 2): https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/how-to/tips-stock-image-acceptance.html

 

"Think like a buyer. Visualize how your photo might be used and try to provide some variety. Frame your shots differently, and provide vertical as well as horizontal shots to give the user more options."

The distinction being "framed" versus "cropped". If the contributor simply takes a landscape image and crops another alternate view in a portrait orientation, that's not desirable/acceptable to Adobe Stock. The designer who chooses to license your image can do that type of crop themselves. However, if you take advantage of the scene while you're shooting and occasionally flip the camera to take a portrait shot instead of traditional landscape, you've retained all of the pixels and provided another perspective on the same scene.

Hey Jill,

again – I have not cropped the landscape picture. It is a nativ portrait format with full resolution and a little different in view.

You said it yourself " a little different in view". That suggests "very similar in view" which is a rejection reason. Using the same location/setting/model is fine but the pictures must be clearly distinct, not just a selection from the shoot. 

This is all guesswork though as I don't see that you shared the pictures you want us to comment on. This is limiting for those who comment.

Don't argue, show the pictures. And it may well be that you submitted 5 pictures of the same subject and 4 got accepted, and the fifth got rejected.

 

As we don't have insight into your submissions, we cannot point out where your pictures are similar. But from my experience I can say that the moderators let pass a number of similar and then stop. So twenty pictures of the same white dog won't pass, regardless of the format.

 

Just to say, the similar refusal gets also used when others submitted similar pictures, and you are the 9th guy submitting a similar red rose.

Hey Jill,

the different is the higher resolution if you not crop your pic... I have practice about 12 years as a media publisher print/digital...

This is exactly my point. It's better to shoot the image in both orientations, rather than relying on cropping later...

Ha, we have a translation problem 😉 What you mean, I have done. I have not cropped the portrait from landscape.

But it's okay. I'm not a global player with stock photos.  I'm silent again.
