I really hate when I receive the message "declined do to unknown reasons" with no real explanation, but maybe you can help me in this endevour.
What do you think is wrong?
Hello @ArakelTheDragon , there are severl issues but mainly the wall is not horizontal, the photo is not properly in focus and the highlights are overexposed.
@ArakelTheDragon Can you look at the reason given on your Dashboard in the Uploaded Files > Not Accepted tab? On the right side of your screen there is a panel with a specific reason that looks like this. I've never seen "unknown reasons" as a response. Where or how did you see that message?
it just says technical issues. How to fix these problems? I did not knew perfection is sought in today's pictgures?
Perfection is key!
Please attach and/or copy paste your pictures here, as using external links like dropbox should be avoided.
Adobe Stock seeks professional and perfect images for their professional customers; straight-out-of-camera unedited snapshots are rarely going to meet that criteria.
Everybody wants a 'perfect' picture, hence all the different filters on Instagram - to make everything - including people - look 'perfect'.
Perfection in pictures is fit for purchase! 😃
If you think your corrections solved the problem, you may try resubmitting. We can't tell if it passes as that or not. We are contributors like you!
My guess is that it won't pass because of soft focus (quite difficult to correct).
What is the correction exactly of soft focus? Is it hard focus? Please the other image in the attachements also, maybe its ok.
Soft focus: the picture is out of focus. The counter mesure would be to sharpen. That is only possible to up a certain point.
Great, is there a way to do it in Python to a good enough levle? There are OpenCV libraries that can do a similar function, gaus, dilate and others are also possible?
Sory, but Python is a programming language, it is not an aim here to do programming. You can use any image processing program you want, but as we are here with Adobe, I would recommend Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom (Cloud or Classic) or Photoshop Elements. But as I said, use any program you want.
BTW: Do you your word processing in Python too?
To add to my comment: an image processor allowing you to adapt the parameters interactively and possibly in a non-destructive manner should be used: Lightroom or Lightroom Classic, Photoshop or Photoshop Elements for example. There are also third-party programs, but as we are here on an Adobe sponsored site, you will need to make your research for those on your own.
Interestingly, some of the leaves are in bearable focus. They can still be corrected in the program. But the flowers being the main subject are out of focus at all. They cannot be fixed.
Stock photography starts with good equipment and subject, proper framing & lighting, depth-of-field and post editing with graphics software. If you're submitting images to Adobe Stock, it's assumed you already know these concepts. If not, consider taking some photography courses and join a photography club in your area.
In the meantime, please review these links and look at what other Adobe Stock contributors are doing in your keyword category.
Hope that helps.
