Worries regarding Rejections.

I hope everyone is doing well. I'm concerned about my stock rejections once more, therefore I'd want to ask a simple, childish question.
How many rejected photos may I have before my account is in danger of being suspended or facing other repercussions?

Although I don't recall seeing a specific number posted anywhere in the Adobe help pages, I think the general rule of thumb is that you should aim for >50% acceptance rate.

By @Daud Rehan

That means that you are at the beginning. I would start getting worried if out of 50, I have 49 rejections. You need to learn from those rejections, to get a higher acceptance rate.

Overall, when you look at the asset, you see a kind of repeated pattern that creates noise.

Check the mouth and the teeth. The young man has a bad dentist.

Teeth, eyes and ears need fixing, some weird artifacts showing up here and there, some haloing around the tie (probably the result of upscaling). The image of the man in the middle of the street. He seems separated from the background, as if he was composited. Seems like he should be casting a shadow somewhere to make him more a part of the scene. In general, if your goal is photorealism, these subjects look more like cardboard cutouts rather than flesh and blood people.

You are certainly encouraged to do so. Post them at full resolution as submitted. If they are too large to be accepted, reduce them only as much as necessary to allow them to be posted.

Okay, these are the images that were rejected. I am aware that you previously advised me to "avoid square format," but these were the photos which I submitted when I was a complete novice.

You need to check your assets at 100%. If you see errors, you need to correct them. The shadow comes probably from sharpening and then upscaling. The noise pattern is most likely caused by the way the software works, and upscaling has made of a nearly sharp asset a very blurred one.

The 50% rate comes from a reward system, where you should have had X submissions and a less than 50% rejection rate to be able to claim the reward.  It does not mean that you get locked out at that rate, but you surly should improve the acceptance.

Yes, you did judge me correctly. Your insights regarding the 50% rate in the context of the reward system are valuable, and I'll definitely keep these in mind to get better.

28.jpg - the right sleeve cuff is malformed as is whatever is on his wrist; his lips are also a bit odd. His feet should have been included in the frame.

20.jpg - his eyes are wonky; both sleeves and hands are malformed. The buttonholes on the jacket as well as the lapel are drawn incorrectly.
19.jpg - his eyes don't match. His teeth are incorrectly drawn, and the bottom button isn't round. The pockets don't match - one is an inset pocket and the other is a flap pocket.

You have to zoom in between 100-200% to see these details, because that's exactly what the Moderators do.

Oh, my! First of all, you people are simply excellent at their jobs, especially since you have different features in your eyes than I have like in 19 jpg. I feel embarrassed that, despite the fact that artefacts are apparent and his right eye is not fixed, I can't notice more than one negative aspect of the situation. It is because these were the photos which were my first submissions on Adobe stock in mid-September. 20 of the photos are in my dashboard now and 21 are in rejection.
As a result, Yet I have much improved in comparison to them because I have sought out and learnt so much from experts,

But even now, I believe that I have so many drawbacks in this that I am unable to identify the minute "facial" issues with my content.🥲

Daud,

I would highly recommend you run your images through facial restoration software such as GFPGAN: 

https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1sVsoBd9AjckIXThgtZhGrHRfFI6UUYOo#scrollTo=zuBCgeH08tdn

 

If you're on a Mac, it does not work with Safari. Use Chrome instead.


Reduce your original AI images by 50% before sending them through (the result will return an image that is back to its original size).

It does not work well with faces that are in strong profile. That is, both eyes need to be as visible as possible.


This is a free site, but if their servers are busy, you won't be able use it (worse case scenerio), or you'll be able to use it without their GPU. Otherwise, simply come back at a later time or purchase some GPU hours.

believe me, sir how vital it is to me to have that kind of programme and website, Currently, I utilise Photoshop's neural filters to eliminate artefacts and other filters for more serious issues, however, the outcome is 10/6, which barely satisfies me. Yes, I am in Windows and I'm extremely looking forward to that type of software which figures out all of these very tiny facial problems which I'm eligible to recognize.
And in last, i want to ask: Isn't Photoshop alone sufficient for all types of photo restorations?

Yes, you can do all in Photoshop, but sometimes it's faster to use other helper programs.
