There are a LOT of flower images on Adobe Stock. And I mean a lot. You have to have something spectacular to stand out and get accepted.

Yep.  Try not shooting flowers (which everyone can shoot) and you'll have more success.

What is the story of your photo? They're flowers with blurred backgrounds. Try shooting them in vases, in people's hands, from different angles, with bugs or bees or butterflies. Anything to have them stand out amongst millions of flower photos on adobe.

These pictures are beautiful and I don't care if there are hundreds of photos about flowers. People decide if they want to buy these photos or not, the people reviewing these photos should only check if there is any inappropriate content, I didn't know that to sell on Adobe Stock you need to pass a test of "Aesthetic and Commercial Appeal".

I had the same situation and I was absolutely aware that my photos wasn't at the same level of others but still people have to start somewhere, thanks to Adobe Stock I will just move on to another platform.

Hello, Yes, your photos are beautiful. I enjoy them all. However, what the rejection stated, "Lack of Aesthetic or Commercial Appeal " does say the same as -  these photos would not appeal to th...Now, the second reason is that most customers do not have the time to search through 90 million stock photos to find just the right flower. Something in your offering must stand out and help customers identify what they want to buy. Titles and descriptive listing of words help. Did you look at Adobe Stock by using the title of your picture to search? The AD agencies know how to use words to attract attention.

Think of Adobe as your customer. Get to know what they are accepting, what trends are and how you can make your work stand out.

With the abundance of great inexpensive cameras available the non-professional can take very good photographs - the competition is a thousand times greater than it was five years ago. If you can make your customer want your work, you do need to create exciting, beautiful and unique work with powerful attractive words. My blue butterfly got accepted when I labeled it - Brilliant Iridescent Huge Blue Butterfly. There are at least 30 pages of blue butterflies in Adobe Stock. I also put an exceptional glowing golden background in the photo.

I must tell you to do more research, learn the market and read Adobe guidelines to know what they want. It is not an insult to get rejected. The market is very tough. Don't give up. Regards, JH

Please have a look at the explanation of the reason for the refusal "Aesthetic or commercial appeal" here in the User Guide:
