Uploading photos problem, always rejected

Recommended Posts

Goodmorning everyone!
I need your help and advice.
It is now since May that every time I load new photographs from my contributor account, not even one is accepted.
I have tried many times, with many different topics and for some reason they are always rejected.
Most of the time the reason is title, then I reload the same photo, changing title, modifying it, and the next 2/3 times it's always refused for the title, then if i try again it is refused for other reasons: artifacts, noise, focus .... rejected 7/8/10 times for different reasons.
In this way I cant understand what is wrong and even changing topics, the same thing always happens with all photo.
Except for a few days when i try to send one photo, they accept it, immediately, in a few minutes I send 10 photos and accept it, I immediately try again and send 25, they accept it all. But it never lasts more than a day, then continuous reject all photos, the problem starts again for weeks ...
sincerely for months now that I don't load for this reason..
Can someone help me to understand? Has anyone the same thing happened? Help me please!!! thanks!

I have been upload photos for years, I have never had these problems….....

Revisori improvvisati che non distinguono un soggetto volutamente mosso da uno sfocato. Ci vuole pazienza e perseveranza e sperare che SS metta dei revisori più capaci e professionali.....

Sorry for the delay! thank you for your answers ...

but I'm so unlucky to catch inspectors who have denied everything for months and months?

however if I succeed I will post some examples below ... if I can understand how to upload photos ...

now I have to say that I gave up, on other stock sites I uploaded 500/600 photos in these months, but here they have accepted 30 photo when i have find another inspector...

this image has been refused several times, at least 5/6 by wrong title,

then I modified it several times and in the end it was refused for focusing problems,

after refused again for the reasons you see in the image

this has been rejected many times, I have 6/7 similar photos with different shots in different positions.
Rejected many times by title, I changed it many times, at the end i write only  "ripe tomatoes". But no wrong title yet.

Then they started to reject it saying that was not in focus, and then for artifacts .... sent in different periods, maybe I tried twice a month ....

I don't know what to do ......

i want only understand what i can do to upload photos......

but the problem is not knowing if this photograph is in focus. the problem is that all the photographs I load, of any subject, are rejected. the first 6/7 times because the title is wrong. I rewrite it different 5/6 times. then suddenly the title goes well and the focus or noise or artifacts are not good, then again the cob is not good, then again the fire. and in any case they refuse everything, it is not possible !!!

The reviewers usually just send one rejection reason at a time. If they come across the title being wrong, they stop at that point and reject it for that reason. It may still be out of focus but they just stopped at the first thing they looked at. When you resubmit with a different title and that passes, then they go to the next part....looking at the photo itself. If it is out of focus or whatever reason they will send you another rejection with that rejection notice.

ok, I imagined that ...
but therefore it is possible that out of 500 photographs that other stock sites have accepted, all have first problems with title, then problems with focus, then again problems with title, then artifact problems, then problems again with title and noise , then again focusing problems? no come on!! I'm definitely not a professional photographer and I will have made mistakes and received garbage and it has always happened to me. but having refused all the photos seems to me exaggerated ..... nobody ever really happened?

Добрый день, angelaflu! Как я вас понимаю. Похоже у меня тоже появилась эта проблема. Я уже много лет на сайте. И был перерыв два года, а сейчас я начала грузить снова. И тоже отклонение уже несколько раз. Последнее просто не видят мои файлы. Хотя я их уже загружала и не приняли только из-за того, что в релизе собственности отсутствовала строка о моей профессии. Странно может показаться, какая у меня может быть профессия.

Shutterstock seems to have a much stricter quality control than the other sites.  That's why I started my stock photography journey here - if I can make it through the SS reviewers, then I know my photos are high enough quality for buyers to want to buy.

With each rejection, I took the time to learn why.  Then I make it my goal to never get that rejection again.  

 

I love the composition of the tomato photo, but it is badly out of focus. When I search "cherry tomato hand" I get 14,599 results that are in focus.  That's your composition.  Before you spend time editing and uploading your photo, ask yourself two questions:

1.  Why would anyone pay a dollar for this photo?
2.  Is this photo worth my time and effort to upload?  Is it worth the 25cents/33cents I'll get when it sells?

Reviewers probably spend a second or two looking at each picture and are only human, so of course there will be false positives and negatives.  But if all pictures a user submits are being dinged there is a persistent problem.

If you think the SS reviewers are serious and professional, how do you explain that the exact same photo is rejected the first time you upload and then accepted the second or third time? A little strange isn't it?

human error? 

from the reading I've done and my limited experience, SS has the reputation of having stricter reviewers than the other agencies.  

The OP is submitting the same photo several times and getting rejected for things like noise and out of focus, as well as title issues.  The example looked to be out of focus.  That other agencies are accepting these supports the hypothesis that SS has stricter quality control.

they definitely are stricter on here. Even if a subject is in focus but your lens is not as sharp at the f stop you used SS will say main subject out of focus. Often it can be sharpened in P Shop or Gimp but only it the image detail is slightly soft.
