Hi Victor Almeida, I am an illustrator and have created pictures like this one. I do this for my own work but never for Adobe Stock. It looks as though you might have adjusted the curves in Photoshop to give the coloring and the look of lumination and halo but this is not usually wanted for stock. A buyer can adjust curves and get the various colors they want. If you just send the first drawing with no after effects it is more likely to get accepted. It might seem not as much fun for us but that is how things are with selling to stock. Maybe take the color back to an even variation of a softer color and lessen the strength of the dark areas.

It took me about five rejections to understand that we must keep our offerings simple .... Best regards, JH

Hi Joan (joanh22203655), thank you for your response. In fact I used Photoshop to emphasize contrast and make some colors pop. All those colors were there, it was a pretty shinny fulmoon night, with a bit natural halo around the moon as well. Afterwards, I vectorized the picture in Illustrator. Then exported the final result as a JPEG picture in Adobe RGB (1998) color format, which increased the color pop effect. Now I'm going back to Illustrator to prepare another version with less or none halo and a less dark night. In your opinion it would be more acceptable as a JPEG or vector file format? Thank you again.

Best regards, Victor

illustrations are best uploaded as Illustrator files.

The gamut is bigger for AdobeRGB, but that should not influence your “colour pop”.

Thanks for your advice about let illustration as an illustrator file format. Indeed the colours in AdobeRGB looks brighter and more vibrant than sRGB or CMYK formats

CMYK is good for printing only. You should convert your images to sRGB before uploading. The problem with the colour models is, that browsers (and a lot of programs) know only sRGB.

See also here: Color profile for Adobe Stock jpeg files?

You can however work your pictures in AdobeRGB, although I prefer ProPhoto RGB (and 16 bits). For uploading (and final client images) I use sRGB (because sRGB is expected by programs not caring about  colour management).

Well, judging from a photographic point of view, you could adjust the colour temp giving you this:Night+View.colourtemp.jpg

But do wonder if illustrations should be judged by the same criteria as in photographs, as this can be a matter of taste.

Though perhaps the moderator didn't like the purplish colour and saw it as a colour cast.

Hi Ricky (ricky336),thanks to your response. I thought this colour criteria would be more applicable to photographs and  illustrations could get more creative freedom, with a bit of fantasy. Perhaps my illustation is too realistic to not to be judged as a real photo. In the end, it all can be just a matter of the moderator taste.

I do not think that it is “taste”, it’s more if the moderator looks at it like a photo.
