Hi Everyone,

At this moment, we are making upfront payments for the 3rd wave of selections for the Free collection from the images you had previously nominated. If any of your images are selected for this wave, you will see your balance go up automatically within the next couple of hours.

I just spotted that. Wow! Very happy with this last round.

Thank you, Mat and Adobe.

I think most/many of us understood. We do have Starbucks in Santa Fe, too. :D

Love it. Any reason the money cannot be withdrawn?

I put in a request to withdraw mine at the end of August. It hasn't come through to my bank yet, but the process seems to be normal. Nothing indicated that I couldn't withdraw it right away.

@LissiC, if you already have a payment request pending in the queue, you can't submit an additional request until it has been processed. There are three other scenarios that come to mind. One, if you haven't had your first sale in the account beyond 45 days. Two, if you do not have a valid tax form on file. Three, if your balance has not reached the minimum payment amount of $25.

If none of those scenarios apply, please submit a ticket via the contact us link at the bottom of the contributor portal.

Kind regards,

Mat

Hey Mat, is this a one time thing or will you ask for more later? I missed it!

Are you asking about the window of time to nominate images to be eligible for the Free collection? If so, I am not aware of any upcoming nomination openings.

Its been a week now since I was told how many of my images were being added to this latest round of selections for the Free Collection. Whilst the appropriate amount has been credited to my account  I am still not able to identify which of my images are involved.
I was wondering if this is generally the case and, if so, does anyone know when our portfolios will be updated with the info ? Thanks

I got 3 more added to the free section from the 3rd wave. I'm clueless which one they are because I didn't keep a track, which ones were selected in the first two waves.

How can I remove images from the free collection "in review" queue? Also is it possible to refund the $5 for images accepted and remove from free collection?

We are handling this 3rd wave differently than the previous 2. The selected files will remain in your paid portfolio for a short period of time yet to be determined. We are paying for the use in advance to simplify the process on our end when transferring images into the free collection. As always, we are closely watching the collection to determine what, if any impact there may be on the paid collection. By paying in advance, we can move the images at the appropriate time in a more seamless manner.



Its now been couple of weeks since I was notified that Id had 8 images slected for the Free Collection in this 3rd wave. The relevant amount ($40) was credited to my account but only 1 of these images has been identified so far as now being "Free".
The 1st and 2nd tranches only took a day or so before they were marked up as Free so it would be instructive to know how long the "short period of time yet to be determined" might extend to.
Can anyone ( Mat ? ) shed any light on this matter ? Thanks

He already did, though I can't find the post anymore. He said they want to be more flexible with the 3rd wave and only add new content to the free gallery in small steps, so single images from the ones that were included in the last wave might be added to the free collection over a long period of time.

Mat explained this in the first post of this thread:
Hi Everyone,

At this moment, we are making upfront payments for the 3rd wave of selections for the Free collection from the images you had previously nominated. If any of your images are selected for this wave, you will see your balance go up automatically within the next couple of hours. We will be sending you an email in the next day or so with the number of files approved and the amount of credits added to your account balance.

It is worth noting that the 12 month period in which your nominated assets are available for the Free collection begins the moment the payment is added to your account.


Thank you,

Mat Hayward

We should know if there is a final 4th wave in a few weeks - maybe on Sept 30th  :)
