Hey guys,

I uploaded a bunch of photos of which about half got rejected (all due to technical reasons) and the other half didn't. I can't seem to grasp the exact reason why they got rejected and what to improve for next time. I would appreciate some tips on what exactly the reasons might be and possibly how to make sure this doesn't happen again.

 

Thanks a lot,

Patricia

Hi Patricia, Please do not publish many pictures to be checked in one post. We are doing this in our free time and errors are probably similar. If you are new to stock, it is worth to send in picture by picture, not too much in a row to see what may pass and what gets refused. It's a learning curve.

Learn to use your camera's manual settings. Stabilize your camera on a tripod or solid object. Make sure your subject is in perfect focus. Examine images at 100-200% magnification and make appropriate corrections where possible.  Not every image is suitable for Stock.  Only submit your BEST work. Adobe Stock customers expect highest visual and technical quality for use in million dollar commercials.

A quick glance at the first few indicates blurry and underexposed. DOF issues too.

Hi Patricia,

Please do not publish many pictures to be checked in one post. We are doing this in our free time and errors are probably similar. If you are new to stock, it is worth to send in picture by picture, not too much in a row to see what may pass and what gets refused. It's a learning curve.

 

I checked some of your pictures and this is what I detected. Please note that the moderator looks into the picture and if he or she sees an error, the refusal button is hit for the first problem detected. There may be multiple problems, however. Especially counter light pictures normally expose multiple problems: Chromatic aberration, noise, under and over exposure, wrong white balance etc. Examine your pictures at 100% and 200% to see the problems.

 

If you are new to stock, you should consider these resources: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/tutorials.html
Please read the contributor user manual for more information on Adobe stock contributions: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/user-guide.html
See here for rejection reasons: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/reasons-for-content-rejection.html
and especially quality and technical issues: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/quality-and-technical-issues.html

 

Looking into 4481 I would say that the noise level is too high:

4482 is similar to 4481.

Noise:
