Need Help, Action Rejected

Hi everyone!
I uploaded new photoshop action on the last Friday but they were rejected, ‘’ We found it isn’t at the quality standard required to move forward, and you won’t be able to re-submit this item again. ‘’ I really need your help.
Thanks!

I think the main problem is that it doesnt look much like a real painting. What I see is the contrast and sharpening pushed way up, with the oil painting filter applied and then smoothed out, and then a subtle canvas texture on top of everything.

There’s extreme haloing around all the edges, which I’m guessing is from sharpening or some other filter. The the lack of paint texture makes it look really fake. Real oil paintings don’t tend to have such smooth gradients like photos do. The edges are too precise. There’s no brush strokes.

Basically, it looks less like a painting, and more like photos with extreme filtering.

Thank you so much…:innocent:

It would also help to test your action widely and ensure it doesn’t have any errors as I think that to be one of the biggest issue affecting actions.
