How can I sort Adobe Stocks imaginary Graining issues for file submission?

Around 90% of the photos I submit to Adobe Stock are rejected for graining issues, this is pretty much exclusively limited to the files I shot in Canon Raw.

Has anyone had any experience with this and knows a work around?

All of the files I have submitted have been accepted by other stock sites I'm just in the progress of uploading my back catalogue.

I have used many of them in design and large production print work myself and I can safely say there is no excessive graining.

Be sure to shoot your content at the lowest ISO possible and be sure to view your images at 100% before submitting. The moderation team reviews your files at full size so they see a lot more noise than you would at a normal view.

Be sure you aren't adding grain or texture in post processing and keep in mind the "artifacts" rejection reason isn't specific to noise only. That's the most common reason for this rejection however images with sensor dust spots, chromatic abberation or excessive post processing filters or effects can result in this error as well.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Similar problem, I'd like to know what the answer/solution is. What do the curators use to determine noise/grain and can we do the same to avoid rejection?

I have seen this, didn't feel it gave me any more information than the rejection emails do.

Do you have any recommended work arounds?

Thanks,

Josh
