Do they make a big difference to sales? How many collections (roughly) would you recommend?

I don't know if they make a difference in sales, you anyway can only present two on your page, unlike pond5 where there is no limit.

But I find them very useful to help me sort through my own port and to see more easily what is missing for a subject, to give customers a more rounded offer.

So I have around 10+ galleries and sort my incoming files when I have time. Not a priority.

If Adobe would allow us to search our own images with keywords, I would maybe use the gallery system more. But like this it is a little tedious to create a new gallery then manually go over all the pages to find files.

I agree, it's a clunky system as it is. Better than it was initially, but it still needs work. I've got requests in to the development team to allow for keyword searches within the dashboard, and to allow contributors to select the hero image for each collection. It's simply not a top priority at this time so I don't expect this to change any time in the near future, but I do bring it up when the opportunity presents itself.

We appreciate the feedback, thank you.

Hi Mat,

that is good to read that at least it is on the todo list for the team.

If you ever need beta testers...

I am a big fan of sorting a port into sensible galleries to make it easier for customers.

The best version I ever saw was on twenty20, unfortunatly taken over and closed down.

Their gallery system was very intutitive and inspiring.

I spent hours browsing various galleries, it had great suggestive features.

Also created many public galleries with mixed content from different artists around a theme.

Many people love to create collections, pinterest thrives on that.

The editing talent in the wider community has never been intelligently tapped by any agency (except twenty20).

Please consider to create a useful interface for "collectors" that will dive into the Adobe collection and create beautiful and very useful public galleries.

Algorithms can only do so much.

Allow the editing talent of the community to surprise and impress you. They are an asset class on their own that should be nurtured and welcomed.

Or buy pinterest and find a useful way to integrate it ;)

To clarify, I didn't say this is on a "to do" list. I wrote that I have requested this upgrade to the portal. I cannot say whether it will happen or not in the future. I'll keep fighting the good fight though :)

Thanks Mat!
Great idea Jasmin!

You can do a keyword search if you hit the link to your portfolio in the dashboard. You can then search your  portfolio from there. It's clunky but at least it can be done. Like Jasmin, I use collections to see where I have holes in my collection.

I wish Adobe would bring back the Adobe Collection plug-in option in Lightroom. It was a great way to keep track of what I'd uploaded and also to collect stuff I wanted to upload all in one place - e.g. travel images from the same location taken at different times - without the need to make additional copies in a separate folder to upload. I know there's a new upload from folder option but that defeats the purpose of Lightroom letting you make collections without the need to duplicate files. Adobe has such great software, it's a shame we don't get the benefits on Adobe Stock. 

Speaking of software, Mat, any chance we'll get another year of LR/PS or Illustrator for meeting certain sales goals?
