 I'm new and I've been playing around with photoshop for a few months. I just found out about the iPhone app and I spent days making this image for Halloween but for some reason it got rejected. I  just need to know why it was reject.

1. The second image has a watermark/signature. This is absolutely not allowed in stock.2. Adobe are looking to buy world class commercial photography. You should not use filters, just edit to perfection. It's hard to get world class work from a phone, but not impossible.3. A tip: seasonal photos should not be made when the season has already arrived; companies who want to make adverts etc. for Hallowe'en already did this weeks or months ago. Think ahead; it may already be too late for Christmas-...

Are the images the same size as you uploaded to adobe stock? Then they are too small. The minimum image resolution is 4 megapixels. Here you will find important information that can help you: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/photography-illustrations.html

I have no idea what you mean. If you didn't make them for Adobe Stock, why did you submit them to Adobe Stock?

Hi @JBTheOne,

Both photos are of poor quality, especially the second that's not sharp. 

The first displays chromatic aberration in the head of the lady. 

We do not celebrate Halloween so I'm forced to ask, is this really a good representation of this festival. It looks very murderous. It gives me the creeps.

 

Best wishes

The image is supposed to give you the creeps. The image does not represent the religious side of Halloween it was based off of horror films and hunted houses. I'm still a beginner with photoshop/ adobe spark post but I made this on the iPhone app which doesn't give you a lot of control. 
can you explain to me what chromatic aberration is? 

I am not a professional yet but I am a beginner doing it for my company. 
I am here to learn and thank you for the advice.

Hi @JBTheOne,

Overall the picture quality is poor, but there is this purple color in the hear that looks like color noise. That's what I refer to.

The picture to me depicts robbery and murder - a hand covering the mouth and a knife at the throat! I just wondered if that was a part of the Halloween customs, symbol, or ritual.

Thank you for the advice.

The theme was horror and the model is wearing a costume. The idea came from a horror film. This is not a  religious or symbolic  or ritual. This idea came from the horror filmed called Halloween.

And I'm just doing this to learn how to use photoshop and have fun.

===========

Yes.  The more secular and arguably darker side to Halloween glorified the grotesque and was born out of Celtic and Druid death rituals.  It later evolved into a children's game of dressing up in scary costumes, collecting whatever wood & other fuel they could carry to bonfires,  committing various acts of mischief & mayhem on their neighbors  -- especially when neighbors failed to offer up treats on demand.  Hence the term "Trick or Treat." 

 

Most children confined their pranks to harmless acts of noise making, streaming paper in trees, knocking over trash cans and smashing pumpkins.  But some delinquents took it to extreme levels with outright vandalism, robbery, assault and even murder.  So 100+ years ago, Halloween was a very scary time.

I really don't understand how this holiday a day in some cultures that represent celebrating/honoring the dead turn in to this corporate scam to get people to buy candy and costumes for kids.

Just look at the sheer number of horror movies, and you know, it's not like Christmas… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_films_set_around_Halloween
