What is going on at Adobe. My entire last submission was rejected for "quality issues". Every single image.

Let it be noted that every single image was accepted at multiple other sites. This happened several months ago and after re-submission every single image got accepted on the second attempt.

Let it be noted my wife also shoots from a smartphone and all her images are accepted, I on the other hand shoot with a top end Canon camera with top end lenses and they are all rejected?

We would need to see some examples to provide you with valid feedback.

This issue often seems to be one reviewer (or if with AI, where AI uses sample) and it tends to rotate per agency.  For seemingly forever, all images accepted then one batch gets unusual rejections.  Images shot with tripod in same studio with same lighting, exposure, etc as others that have been accepted for years.

Unfortunately, this seems to happen on Adobe but it also happens at other agencies.  The most annoying aspect is Adobe rejections just says "technical".  I have to wonder if the reviewers there had to identify what technical issue there would be less of this random craziness.  In any case, the vague reason does nothing to help contributors in future.

Resend again, if you think your photo good enough.

yes, I did find out that If your images are dark they often get rejected for quality issues so if I brighten it up and re-submit it then gets accepted. They even reject if they think the color balance is wrong but that is subjective at best.

Blown out highlights are another certain fail for "Quality Issues", that's one I admit I've been guilty of sometimes when I'm using the overhead lights and they are too harsh or reflecting on the surface of the subjects.

It always seems to be rejections for quality issues nowadays and I am having to guess which but can sometimes find problems but not always. I don't go on adobe forums anymore because they ALWAYS side with adobe. The revewers are wrong on there sometimes because I had more than one image re-instated after rejection and it sold soon afterward. Also someone on the forum calls himself a hardware/soft engineer but why would that make him an expert? hell, I'm a trained G designer from the analog era before digital but adobe with their software & apple ruined it all for me I'm afraid.

Thanks for your reply and Happy New Year to you and yours.

I have decided that Hildegarde is the most accurate in response. This crazy rejection situation happened several months ago as well on Adobe and after re-submitting I had gone from 80%-100% rejection rate to the polar opposite of 90%-100% acceptance rate on the exact same images.

Urghhhh
Rejected by adobe for ... generic quality issues.

Boring 😴 😴

Translucent objects on textured paper with an L macro lens. Back-lit so they light up. Focus was brutally sharp. So sharp I had to search through the 40 I did because I didn't see the dog hair on most until zoomed in 150%.

Poor quality or poor lighting issues. Yeah that's how they were Back-lit. Poorly lit from the front.

Do adobe even want photos any more lol. Oh well accepted at SS blah blah.

Guess I'll try the resubmit runaround game. It's like the bad old days at SS.

I have already 16 rejected in January, pretty unusual, they are accepted everywhere, couple is sold at same day in SS, one is  Illustrative editorial issue but is not a problem with accepting same image as cut out. Hmm ??? No time for reseeding in this business, take it or leave it

Yes a total waste of time for everyone. I did however resubmit and they all got accepted on second go. Usually a reject here or there does not bother me, but having total rejects or a stupid amount of rejects is an on the inspector not doing their job.

Why do something once when you can do it twice?

Going back a few years I remember Rinder stating how much he would get paid. Then it was i think 15 cents per review he said. I'm sure it's less now. But if they know its fine they knownutll come back through so Adobe in this case will pay twice for the review.

Of course although Matt says they don't, they do use A.I. and you know that because for years SS claimed they didn't then they admitted they did. Like the SS A.I. it rejects artistic lighting such as underexposed for texture or selective focus. Smooth surfaces and reflections and translucent objects get rejected for poor quality and poor focus because it can't handle it. I remember SS's "chromatic luminance" or something wierd everyone had to look up. It wasn't aberration or something normal. We had weeks of that then it shifted onto something else.

A.I. May be cheaper than humans but it is extremely stupid. And as a result you'll be getting homogenised output. Andntradirionally homogenised products do not sell.

They did interesting experiments with clothes. All the same colour T shirt stacked together meant people could zoom in on their favourite colours. Then go through them to find a design they liked. Then they may pick one. The problem was that they then bypassed all the other colours where they may have chosen design. But they couldn't be bothered to go through all the colours. Sales dropped.

If all the trees have a generic form and colour and artificial lighting level that looks like a still from a PS5 game you'll be losing customers. The same with any subject.

SS have learnt. Or their A.I. has been given glasses. Or their reviewers have better eyesight lol.
