Hi, I am brand new to adobe stock and I posted two vector drawings that I made.  Both were rejected.  Would love to get some specific feed back.

 

Thanks so much!

Hello,

"The reason was that it doesn't fit their needs." = "AESTHETIC OR COMMERCIAL APPEAL OF IMAGE

Unfortunately, during our review we found that it doesn't have the aesthetic or commercial appeal we're looking for, so we can't accept it into our collection."

 

So this means Adobe doesn't think it will sell.

And this means try again!

What specific reason was given for rejection, please. If we guess it may not be helpful to you.

The reason was that it doesn't fit thier needs.  I have looked as the specifications for submissions and I beleive that I have met all of those.

Thanks Marianne, beautiful work.  But without a more clear reason as to what the problem was, I'm not sure what to do.  Should I assume that they just didn't like the work?

It isn't really about personal preferences. They are looking for work that their customers will pay for. I have no idea how they decide that, of course, but studying the creative trends could keep you inside the train. It is NOT a gallery, and sometimes we are too close to our own work to see the subtle difference between what is good and what will sell.

Please give the exact refusal reason. This is important so that we do not need to guess. "The reason was that it doesn't fit thier needs." is not a reason text as send out. It's either your interpretation or translation. You can paste the text here in the original language.

You may also look up the contributor documentation for more information about refusals. https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/user-guide.html?topic=/stock/contributor/morehelp/review.u...
