I think one area Adobe should improve is with the rejections reasons, especially when the reason is due to a "lack of aesthetic/commercial appeal." The reviewer should say why they do not think the images are suitable. I find that Adobe often rejects images with a medical/science theme, despite such images selling very well once accepted. Other stuff, like landscapes, get accepted more easily, but in my experience, rarely get sold.

They like "fake" authenticity if you can do that you've got it made.

Waaaaaaay down at the bottom, vector artists are allowed to submit common icons and textures. Yay.

OK I'm stuck in the travel section Adobe say

"Scenes from popular ....[insert location]... destinations,
such as London, Barcelona, Lisbon, Paris, Brussels, Vienna,
Athens, and Rome. People in everyday settings, as well as at tourist attractions"

But the only way to shoot that kind of thing is via editorial and Adobe/Fotolia do not accept editorial

So how can we submit that kind of imagery??

Which shows that whoever drew up this list has no clue as to how Adobe/Fotolia work

Sigh...

Well if you search for 'tourist attraction' you get about half a million results, so maybe they have a slight clue.

Realism is one of my specialties.  :)
But I hope you guys will regularly update that list because I would imagine that list will get obsolete fast.

In that case they should change their submission process and rules

But searching for "tourist attraction" you see lots of images without anyone in them

Strangely empty places.

Do the same search for "tourist attraction people" you get 40,000 hits but this time with single people or couples obviously model released but not natural

The list states they also look for all kinds of cars, rv's etc. but when you submit these (I do a lot of vintage cars photography), with brands etc. removed they are almost always rejected for Intellectual Property Violation.....

Hello All,

Not a week goes by where I'm not asked at least once what type of content Adobe Stock is looking for. The general, catch-all answer is that regardless of the subject matter, buyers are looking for authenticity. Real looking people in real situations with genuine expressions and interactions.

That remains true and I expect it always will. That being said, a more specific list of content needs and requests has been generated. If you are looking for some motivation on what to shoot next..look no further than the list linked below....

 https://adobe.ly/2pdvHeB

That's funny ... I was out on rainy old monday and had decided I'd shoot textures. So I shot some tree bark and stuff, I don't think I put them in the folder to upload though ... and here is bark on the list. I'll have to give it a go.
