Hi all, I have recently opened an Adobe Stock sales account however have had a lot of my images rejected on the grounds of poor image quality. Now I'm aware that the quality of images has to be high however I found the decision for Adobe to reject some of my photos a little harsh as I personally found them to be of good quality. I have attached some of the images to this post in the hope that any of you can inform me as to why you might think they were rejected.

Have a read of this. It's a brief guide on image quality.
From your images, I think you have a problem with white balance - first two photos as well as it appears to be a bit pixilated, the horse's head - the white part of the nose is blown out - -there is no detail in the white areas, and there should be! I think there is too much contrast in the can pop-top, The bird photos aren't sharp enough - the robin's head appears to be a bit out of focus, the tower seems to be oversharpened etc.
So, overall, the image quality is not so good.
Yes, I do have a tendency to get carried away with the sharpen tool/s now & again 😕 Thanks for the feedback & link it all helps. When you say I have "a problem with white balance" would you say the best tool to rectify that is the brightness contrast, levels, curves & exposure?
The first step would be to use the temp slider in your editing programme - Lightroom for example. Sometimes using the auto button works well. You can always use the Auto tone/ colour etc in Photoshop as well, but only if this was taken in JPEG. It is easier to use colour corrections if you took this in raw format.
