Regarding illustrative editorial requirements for photos on Adobestock. Adobestock does not accept Illustrative editorial images with recognizable people in them.
I understand that if you took an illustrative editorial photo of say the exterior of a store that it would not be accepted if someone happened to be walking by and was in the photo.
I have always assumed that you are not allowed to "photoshop" such person out of the photo and then submit it.
However, in reading the editorial guidelines, it doesn't specifically say that.

So, my question is: are you allowed to remove people from a photo and then submit as illustrative editorial? I am pretty sure the answer is no, but thought I'd ask to be sure.

I don't think it will be a problem to remove people from photos. How does Adobe even know this?
And faces can be blurred.

Illustrative Editorial is not the same as News Editorial. News needs to be honest, not cloned, not edited for content, not deceptive, without adding or removing. There's more, but that's a general statement.

Illustrative Editorial is not the same. I blur and clone out price tags or store markings. I haven't ever cloned out a person, but I don't see why not. IE is about the subject, not about real news or journalist integrity. I think of them as product representations.

(I don't work for Adobe, I'm not an expert, this is just my personal opinion and observation.)

"At Adobe Stock, we define illustrative editorial as conceptual imagery designed to illustrate articles on current events and newsworthy topics. This type of content often features images of real brands and products like signs on buildings, soda cans, computers, and cars to convey a story. Illustrative editorial content is made available to Adobe Stock customers for editorial use only.

Illustrative editorial isnt the same as editorial content, which documents events or incidents that are currently occurring or developing, or that have already occurred. We do not accept traditional editorial content at this time."

What you said makes a whole lot of sense. I would like to hear from Mat/Adobe officially on this.

I'm very interested in getting an answer for this one too. Since illustrative editorial is a form of editorial and can be used for news articles, I was under the assumption that image manipulation wasn't allowed. Though I could be completely wrong.

Not the same as News Editorial.

I suppose someone who goes to the forum on Discord could ask, Adobe. Myself I see they are different, where real news has to be authentic. Even the limits on editing are different.

So it can be news related. Yes, it will be interesting to hear what Matt has to say.

By the way, I like the cow avatar, Pete.

I know Mat reads here and especially this subject. Maybe he's waiting for an answer, or how to answer, from Adobe?

Why no answer?
