After shooting film images for magazines for more than 40 years, I have collect a lot of film images both topside and underwater.  We scanned them at very high resolution using digital ice to remove artifacts, and everything we have uploaded has been rejected because they had grain.   Does this mean that Adobe Stock does not accept 35mm film images for Adobe Stock contributors.  We even sent Kodachrome 25 images which has a very tight grain pattern, and they were rejected.  I have already removed all my digital images from Adobe Stock, and plan on moving on to a competitor.  I just wanted to know so that when I lecture to my students, I can tell them that the film images are not accepted by you.  

Sure, we will accept scans. It's important to note however, the review criteria is the same. There isn't a different review process that takes into account the image was scanned. If instead of noise, there is excessive grain or artifacts from the scan, we won't be able to accept it.

I have got basically the same question: Does it make sense to upload sanned Images at all as they have always a certain grain?

Thank' s for an answer,

Alois

I don't agree with you at all. First, there are

many very famous photographers that would not

meet your criteria because their images do have

grain. In fact, they shoot for grain. It's

called art, and I think you are so wrapped up in

technology, you fail to see that some images with

grain do have merit. Second, there are a great

many underwater images shot on film that cannot

be shot on digital because the situations no

longer exist. You need to reconsider your

rules. Setup a film division. Don't put them

together and compare them. Doesn't really matter

anyway. I removed my images from your stock

account and signed up with two other

agencies. They agree with me. I will pass the

word to other photographers I know.

I signed up with

www.bigstockphotos.com

https://www.dreamstime.com They don't pay

as much, but in the first couple days on BigStock

I sold a couple. Not much because whoever

bought them bought in stock. Stock photography

will never be the same as it was in the 20th

century. We just need to adjust. If they stay

in the drawer, no one will ever see what we saw

when we took the shot. If we get paid a little

for the effort, so much the better.

I removed all my images that did make

it. (digital) and moved on to two other

agencies that are much more accommodating and do sell pictures more than Adobe.

Crazy world where someone like Adobe rejects

images that may not be possible on digital, just because they are on film.
