We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I'm very recent to the photo-stock game but I already have a significant collection of photos that I've began to submit. While I'm expecting to get a few rejections every now and then and while I completely understand the rules and major reasons for rejections, I would very much love it if I had more specific reasons for the rejections, just so I know if I can go back to the originals and fix them for resubmission. On a couple of instances, I tried to fix a few technical issues multiple times but to no avail. While I completely respect and agree with Adobe Stock's high quality standards and rules and such, I still wish I knew where to start when it comes to fixing my rejected photos. So, is there any way possible to get a little more information on the rejected photos?
Thank you all for your time and help:)
Adobe will not provide more detail, I suspect it would slow them down too much, reviewers have to get through perhaps 100,000 photos a day, and they prefer to just lose some photos. Anyway, there are experts in this forum who may be able to help you review. It is is vital to include the original rejection text. Please share a few actual photos (not low resolution versions) since many issues are only visible in the original. Remember it's volunteers, not an Adobe service... Good luck with your future sales!

There is no way to get more specific indications from Adobe. Moderators have very little time to check each image and the first error they find will disqualify the image on that error. Also the error indication is translate in a bunch of different languages. You cannot expect the moderator writing lengthy analyzes for this.
You are free, however, to submit your picture here in a reasonable size (you may even watermark for this) for peer contributors to analyze. Please include the reason for the refusal as that indicates us in what direction to look.
Most refusals are due to noise, artifacts, white balance, IP violation or missing releases. Some are easy to spot, others more difficult. We are all volunteers helping out other peers.
