So basically nothing for most of us and a split of a split for Stocksy contributors.

Bad news Mat :( ... So we are forced to sell (editorial) through an agency that is 100 % exclusive and not accepting applications as we speak.

Stock Like Only Adobe Can: Adobe Stock Brings New Search Features and Editorial Partnerships to Creatives Worldwide
https://blogs.adobe.com/creativecloud/stock-like-only-adobe-can/

Great title, indeed only AS can be that original.
So Stocksy is the AS premium collection and all those faithful FT exclusives are left to dry in the sun.

What's next? Only CC users can upload to AS?

It looks like I got it wrong, the big news is for Stocksy contributors. Sorry

A very, very large part of what I sell in all agencies are editorial images. It's very disappointing not to be able to have those images on Fotolia where I'm sure they would sell great.

In fact, some of the images that I can get accepted at Fotolia as commercial are in most cases not even near the best sellers I have of that same subject on the agencies that accepted the editorial photos.

Fotolia is missing a very large market by putting itself out of the Editorial section.

Stocksy is just one of a number of contributors to AS Premium.  We're really excited about it.

Yay for half a dozen people! Why would you announce this here? It would be much better received at Stocksy forums (I'm assuming Stocksy has forums). For the rest of us it means editorial competition we are no part of.

I'm eagerly looking forward to contributing editorial content when "a broader contributor program for editorial content" is available. 

Thanks to Mat for letting us know about policy changes.  Wish other agencies communicated as clearly.

soon stocksy will be like another micro stock agency...clearly.
no sense in selling in adobe. disappointing.
also i sell most of my image as editorial in ss and alamy, disappointed to see no editorial , i'm sure it would have boosted my revenue.

Why would editorial buyers use a site that has limited content?  I also don't see how this fits in with the Stocksy ethos?  What cut do Stocksy contributors get after Adobe have taken their percentage?

We've known about this for some time.  It was discussed extensively in our forums when the opportunity arose, and the terms and details got a very positive response from the contributor base.  We feel Adobe is a great company to partner with (especially given the options, lol).

Well, that seems like the appropriate place to discuss it. Not exciting news at all for most of us here. Kind of has a certain "rub your nose in it" feel to it. Lol, as they say.

It is "exciting news". As that phrase has taken on a special meaning in microstock. Looks like Adobe is beginning to implement the sort of divisive and inexplicably self-destructive policies which allowed iStock to successfully blow the huge headstart it had in the industry while simultaneously alienating almost all of its suppliers. As the saying goes, history doesn't really repeat itself but it does rhyme.

The exciting news will be good news for Shutterstock and Adobe's other competitors - who will enjoy seeing Adobe shoot itself in the foot the way iStock did so often - and Stocksy contributors.

I don't do editorial so I guess this news has nothing to offer me?

Thank you Mat.
But this is far to be a good or exciting new for the most of us

Appreciate it being posted here. It is good to be kept in the loop even if it doesn't help most of us.

I am happy for stocksy contributors. I think it's great that there's an agency out there being run by its contributors even if I don't get to be in on it.

Keeping my fingers crossed for editorial being accepted from the rest of us in the long run.

This is the kiss of death!!  truth is that stocksy probably needs extra business! and at the same time it seems Adobe will cash in??over the years I have got to know quite a few people at stocksy and they are not too happy. Editorial??  well Alamy have got billions of that. Whats the point of saturating, flooding the market even more?  I'm out of Adobe!  they should stick to what they do best, programs and softwares!

I assume when you say "we", you mean Stocksy members because I don't see the excitement elsewhere.
You probably know more details than we do about this partnership and contributors' (cooperators) commission. Probably they will not be payed with AS flat 33%.

Some people who really knows what stock is don't see AS contributors' future in such a bright light.

Of course, I wish all Stocksy colleagues much success.

Calm down. No kisses of death anywhere. Stocksy needs extra business as everybody else you and me included. And if you know "not happy" Stocksy contributors I know some that are happy. Right now they are by far the most contributor friendly agency around by far. "Adobe will cash in".... good for them, that's what's all about in the photostock world. The point of saturating the market ??huh... Every agency is looking for good and varied content to offer to their buyers, and yes Adobe is great doing software and it is also trying to be better selling content. What's the big deal. A great move for them, great news to Stocksy contributors and maybe  every other contributor that shoots editorial if the finally open that door completely. No need for all the drama in your post.

Thanks for the link, I didn't know about that thread. I quickly read a few posts, most of them envious.
Anyway, now after almost two years later and analyzing my own performance (better said decline) I don't see a bright feature at AS for myself. I have a feeling that I'm not alone.
