Adobe Stock / Re: Payout minimum reduced to $25
« Last post by Chichikov on Today at 05:30 »
What about auto payout (like Shutterstock) when you reach the step?

I would not want auto payout every $25, so if there were automatic payments (which would be very welcome), it needs to be a user-settable money threshold or, ideally, monthly (like SS where you can set the minimum so those who want to be paid less frequently than once a month because of transaction fees have that option too). Direct deposit to my bank account (like Alamy) would also be a plus.

But then I'd also like to be able to search my portfolio (on the contributor side) by keywords or image number, and to see the total earnings for each image, and...

Given all the missing features in the Adobe contributor interface, I'd probably put those at a higher priority than automatic payments

Yes, it is what I meant when I wrote (like Shutterstock). Automatic for the threshold you have chosen and for a for pre-determined interval of time.

About the search on the own portfolio this is a very good (and needed) point.
There is so many time that I am hoping to have this feature.
This morning I had to search for an old photo that I wanted to delete and I needed to watch 50 pages of portfolio before than I found it Very inefficient method and very time consuming.
Wake up Adobe, we are in 2020!!

Alamy.com / Re: Alamy reducing commission from 50% to 40%
« Last post by ShadySue on Today at 05:21 »
A revolution against someone who is still paying the highest rates (but not so high anymore) and that is trying to invest in growth to get more end customers should find contributors considerate and not angry, offensive or insulting. 
That's completely ignoring the fact that we already went from 60% to 50% to fund the US office. According to Alamy, that expansion went "far better than we expected", though most (of those who report) haven't seen any uptick in sales to the US. So most of us lost money to boost the earnings of a few (and, apparently, Alamy's bottom line). Despite them saying that expanding US operations at our expense surpassed expectations, we didn't get restored to 60%.

Depositphotos - poor sales and high maintenance, buggy interface. They would often reject files that other agencies approved without a problem.
Though they are now accepting them after several years! I assumed they'd deleted apparently not!!!
Yeah, I'm also getting these emails, lol

Dreamstime.com / Re: Request for web extended license (W-EL)
« Last post by Dodie on Today at 04:18 »
And now Ive just received another e-mail from Dreamstime. This one is requesting a P-EL license for the very same image. Seems odd that someone would want both a print license and a web license for the same photo. I thought it would usually be one or the other (assuming it's the same client.)

Okay....may as well enable these options and see what happens. Is anyone else getting these kinds of e-mails currently?

I got two requests (emails) today, also for W-EL and P-EL for an image that was sold two days ago for $1.80.

Good decision.

Some agencies who earn much, much less than AS/FL should follow this example.

It would be good if DT followed this model. Over there, some people have to wait for an eternity to receive a payout.
I cashed out a few days ago..on there not sure I will be doing that again ever......

Hey Mat,

I've got a question regarding the title of the file. On most other sites, we are required to enter both a title and a description, but on AS only a title is needed.

Is it better to keep it short as a title or to create more of a description including for instance the type of shot, concept, backstory etc.?

Thanks for your help!

Found the answer for those who want more info on the subject:

Yeah, that's useful. Thanks.

Adobe Stock / Acceptable acceptance level
« Last post by BaldricksTrousers on Today at 01:56 »
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.
