This news could as well be sent via email to those whom it may concern. You could even call and tell them. If I was an editorial buyer, why would I bother to even think about searching images on such a picky and "elite" site? People need very diverse type of images; both editorial and commercial. Not only sparkling clear studio shots with perfect professional lighting. I myself needed a lot images that don't look stockie in the past and fotolia was not the right place to look.

News happen any time, anywhere and you never know who will need them, when and why they need them.
Well please keep an eye on my port, I shoot real life, real light, real people. Editorial and commercial,
Istockphoto.com/jodijacobson I have 22000 photo's online and add more everyday. I always have my camera on my shoulder. I also shoot on spec and put them up on Getty


Seriously? An advert?  ::)

I hope this means that in a few months, when Adobe sees how editorial sells, that they will open up their plattform for all artists to submit editorial content.

Especially for video I find it certainly worth while and with the global reach of the fotolia community it would be a shame to neglect this important resource that can bring you fresh editorial content from around the world.

They are looking for real editorial content not the unretouched iPhone showing a Google search. They are aiming to be the next Getty why should they waste time with the lame pseudo-editorial content from microstockers. I understand the frustation but they obviously doing everything right!

Getty sells tons of iphone video.

How else do you think todays news market works? That every time something happens they fly out a team of 5 people, lay tracks or bring in the helicopter?

News has to be fast.

CNN just streamed the London fire disaster live from their iphone.

Besides, whole movies are being recorded on iphones these days.

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 appreciate your feedback . It is important to me to communcate changes happening at Adobe Stock to you whenever I can in as timely a manner as possible. Some of the changes I announce will have an impact on you, others may not. Regardless, I think it's very important that our contributor community stays informed.

Thanks,

Mat

Yes Mat I appreciate the news and maybe it's an indication that we might be able to upload Editorial some day. Since my name isn't Reuters or USA Today, it doesn't mean anything except some hope for the future.  :) As usual I'd rather hear from you and the agency and not someone who read someplace about a new deal that's not announced where Adobe made a new partner agreement.

Up front from Adobe and I like that.

You cant be that serious. This is a forum of mostly competitors. Serious would be if you pushed your port in places where buyers actually hang out. To me, this seems more like bragging.  ;)

The guy above me said he was a buyer so I posted that. But if you call it bragging...OK. I agree. With all my hard work over the last 30 years with slides at RM agencies and 10 at IS, never missing a day uploading and still making a living, I've earned my bragging rights. I'll brag that I work really hard at stock photography.

iphones are of course the only smartphones able to capture videos...
Yes, and Apple invented the mouse, GUI with windows etc...  ::)

No, he didn't, he said, "If I was an editorial buyer, why would I ..." and "I ... needed"
