I'm wondering what sort of percentage of acceptances is needed before a portfolio starts getting punished. I've had a few for reasons that I understand but with older files needing uploading I'm wondering how close to the borderline I should stray. What to do with film files, for example, some of which get accepted while others get grain rejections.

Does Adobe punish?

Someone posted that deleting an unfinished upload  could count as increasing the number of rejections, thereby harming the search placement of the rest of that contributor's files. The idea that removing files that hadn't yet been inspected could affect search placement was quickly ruled out, but nobody questioned the idea that getting rejections from the inspectors would harm that contributor's other files. So, if that's right, then the answer to your question would be "yes".

No is the answer to your question. There are no punitive consequences based on your approval ratio. The only time it has ever mattered is in regards to the Creative Cloud giveaway promotion this year which requires a 50% approval ratio based on all uploaded files.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

@ Mat - are you saying that the acceptance ratio is not a factor in the search algorithm (there are only so many factors available to be used to structure a search return from millions of images)?

He said the other day that the only factor is your portfolio size. But I'm not so sure now

That would be counterproductive. It would reward people for uploading masses of poor or similar images and penalise talented newcomers with small, high-quality portfolios.

True but Adobe is very picky.

That might depend how it fits in with the algorithm as a whole as it rewards people who contribute images. I would guess and that's what everyone except Matt will be doing,  that number of sales/views and the ratio of those to port size would be in there somewhere.

Yes, I am saying that acceptance ratio is not a factor in the search algorithm.

It doesn't strike me as being any more picky than iS or SS were in the days before they opened the flood gates - maybe even less picky (e.g. they've accepted a "Rembrandt lighting" version of a subject that the others claimed was badly lit, though I don't agree that different is always bad).
