Help...it seems like Adobe stopped reviewing my work all of a sudden. I have only 56 images in my portfolio. I have been up loading 7-10 per day with low rejection rate. I have made 3 sales since joining last month which is great! I have both AI and non AI with 95 images sitting waiting for review. It's been 14 days since any reviews. It is hard to build a portfolio at this rate....

Waiting time before moderation is up to 8 weeks, so you are still well in schedule.

Are you referring to the "File Info..." in Photoshop? I could be wrong, but I doubt misspelling your name there was the reason for rejection. I don't think the moderators even look at that file info. They would spend more time glancing at the keywords and titles to make sure there is no misuse of the same. Even then, I've had assets accepted that I've later discovered have typos in titles

The Moderator apparently pressed the wrong rejection code. This one should have been rejected for quality issues due to the visible chroma noise in the sky. The claws are weird too, which makes it look like an AI drawing error.

That is 200 + images a month! Is there any wunder why review is taking longer since AI is being accepted? Be patient. 30% of your uploaded images have already been approved and can generate sales.

no,

i am sorrythat I did not mention that i have stopped uploading images, it is not 200 a month as I have only 56 in my portifolio and 95 sitting in queue. I have 17 rejections (2 of which were my own dumb fault of misspelling my own name in the copyright in PS). So I have only had 73 images reviewed images thus far.

The Adobe Stock Moderators add >400,000 approved assets to the database each week, which means they probably review well over half a million. As long as submissions continue at a high level, the backlog will remain high. There's nothing you can do except remain patient and work on new assets to prepare them for submission. Your submissions will get reviewed eventually, and will then be available for licensing forever!

It looks to me that they are getting swamped by hugh quantities of AI.  I took a look at some of the large porfolios that they show under "Insights" and many of them are 100 pages with a majority of assets being AI generated.

 

I think I am begining to understand how the sleigh manufacturers must have felt when Henry Ford made cars cheap.

Actually, I think the influx of AI has slowed down substantially compared to when Adobe first opened the floodgates and people were submitting thousands of unedited AI assest per day. 100% of my submissions are AI, but I rarely submit more than 4 to 8 images daily. Reviews for me have also slowed down compared to weeks or even months ago, when it wasn't unusual for me to have 20 to 40 assets reviewed daily (understand that at that point in time, I had about 500 assets waiting to be reviewed, not because I was uploading gobs of images, but because it took awhile for my assets to be reviewed at all).

 

Presently, I've been getting a couple of images accepted over night (ones that I uploaded within the last 24 hours or less), followed by 3 to 5 images accepted in the late mornings that have been sitting around for over a month. This has been going on for the last three weeks or more. I think Adobe is always experimenting with new ways to send assets to their moderators in an effort to find which method works best for everyone involved. But that's all guesswork. I still believe photographers and illustrators outnumber the people submitting AI, if only because those who were submitting AI in the beginning have learned it's not generating the so-called "passive income" they thought it would, because they learned that it actually took a lot of work to do it correctly.

 it said "Non compliant use of another artist’s name" or "Content not compliant with overall guidelines" or   or "Undeclared Generative AI Content" one of these 3 were mentioned as why it got rejected.

This is a non AI image so that is not it.....Not sure why it was flagged,  but it's fine, I  just parked it in my reject bucket.

It looks like moderators increasingly use this refusal reason for assets that have severe quality issues. But yes, it could also be a generative AI asset. The errors are similar than what you see there. Is it a photo or a drawing? If it is a photo, you have used intensively filters, what you should avoid.

14 business days is not long.

 

  • Stock receives thousands of submissions per week -- photos, illustrations, vectors, AI & videos. 
  • During peek holiday seasons, they receive more.
  • Seasonal assets should be submitted 4-6 months ahead, when customers are likely to need them.

 

Review times vary by how many other assets are ahead of yours in the wait queue.  Average wait times are 1 - 3 months. 

Work on other assets while your current submissions wait for review.
