Good Morning
How do I cancel my account as a photographer, because I think Adobe wants photographers to edit the photos, and I'm just a photographer, I didn't think the evaluation system was very clear
Thank you

Photographs have always been "edited" even in the times of film cameras or even with the very first cameras. This was called developing and if you did not do that, the laboratory did it for you. A lot of the tools used in Photoshop are simulating this editing.

 

And today the situation is similar. In camera processing develops your pictures. But the decisions the camera takes are not always suitable. That's why photographers use computer programs like Lightroom and Photoshop to process the pictures.

 

Stock photography requires pictures that are good for being used for a wide range of applications. That's why Stock needs neutral processing. But still, very often, some areas of a picture are to dark or too light, there is dust, or there are other disturbing elements. Also, there are some legal requirements to edit pictures, like visible logos.

 

BTW: I have probably very few pictures that get distributed without some minor adjustments. Even when I'm taking pictures of an event, I need to process the pictures to make them look best. Most of it are easy adjustments with seconds of my time spend, but some require more time.

 

This said, if you really want to cancel your contributor account, you need to contact Adobe stock contributor support: Need help? (stock contributor support)

Digital photography requires more than holding a camera.  A robot drone can take pictures. 

 

Instead of giving up on Stock, why not get a subscription to the Photography Plan for $10/month and see how easy improving your digital photos can be?

 

Creative Cloud Photography Plan includes the very latest versions of these great products & services:
-- Photoshop CC and Photoshop on iPad
-- Lightroom on desktop, mobile and the web
-- Lightroom Classic
-- Portfolio website + hosting (ties in with Behance, Lightroom and your Adobe Stock submissions)
-- Spark with premium features
-- Bridge
-- 20 GB cloud storage (upgradable to 1 TB).

Good afternoon
I have been a photographer for over 45 years, as I said a photographer and
not an editor, in my day I didn't have robots or drones, so it's not my
case.
After this answer, arrogant and rude and I really prefer to leave Adobe.
Be more professional.

Good luck

Nobody here has been arrogant or rude to you.  NASA has been sending probes with cameras to distant planets for over 50 years.  Robot captured images are nothing new.  But they are rarely perfect without some post production work.
