Hi I submitted a bunch of images of which most were rejected for Intellectual property. I see in a couple cases there is a brand but in the great majority its just streetscapes, architectural or street images and landscapes. 

 

Here are the links of the submission (I got approved 5 out of them all!) and its very frustrating.

I appreciate your help.

These seem to be whole galleries, rather than specific images to check. I see boat names and building names. 

in future please post 1-3 original images (not resaved) in the Stock Co tributes forum, with rejection reason for each.

Thaks for the answer. It seems to be really counterproductive then to post any of my images to Adobe Stock, being that to have any semblance of income I understand you need to provide thousands of images, and having such a hard time getting even a few images accepted when I am infringing no property laws in 90% of the images I posted...

Well, it seems you know best, and don't need to read Adobe's rules on IP in images.

For Adobe (and other stock providers) to have such pictures accepted, you need to photoshop these ship names and other identifiers, logos etc.

Stock photography needs to be secure to use by the customer, and that means that you need to prepare your pictures accordingly.

Also many modern buildings. You don't have the rights to make money from other people's designs.

It's your responsibility as a Stock photographer to be informed and educate yourself about what is legal for commercial use.  Avoid taking pictures of objects that don't belong to you 100% or submit signed property releases by the rightful owners.  Nobody wants a lawsuit, particularly YOU!

 

Start reading these links.  Seek a legal consultant if you think you need one.

Stock photography in public places, particularly marinas and harbors, is always going to be difficult. You can spend a lot of time scrubbing away all signs, logos, identifiers, etc. and still never sell the image. I usually don't waste my time doing so unless it's a quick editing job.
