Yes, sounds like things are going well! Looking forward to when Editorial will be expanded to allow incidental unreleased people.

Thanks for the update Mat. I have a few editorial images with street scenes or beaches where there are people in the background. This is an example:

https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/merida-mexico-december-26-2007-meridas-191207564

It's not focusing on a person, but there are unreleased people. Is this allowed or not? I did read the information page, but the one disallowed example just showed one highly visible (though out of focus) person, so I wasn't sure.

No, unfortunately we wouldn't be able to accept that shot because of the recognizable people. The disallowed example was a shot I took of my Daughter to illustrate that even though she is out of focus she would still be considered recognizable and the image can't be approved at Adobe Stock.

As a reminder, you can check your rank at the bottom of the Contributor Account section in the Adobe Stock contributor portal.

Great news :-) Still, with my 3000 sales a long way to go, but definitely much closer :-)

How many downloads is Gold?

How many downloads is Gold?

Gold rank is 10,000 downloads. To the  previous question yes, Fotolia rank is Adobe Stock rank for this bonus.

Thanks, Mat, nearly 3/4 of the way so I'll soon be eligible, (I hope).

Mat - nobody seems to be asking the obvious question, so I will. Is Illustrative Editorial (with no recognisable people) the full extent to which Adobe is going to allow editorial images? Many of us were hoping for editorial on Fotolia/Adobe for a long time but were thinking of parades/street scenes/music festivals etc (all with plenty of unreleased people in them) which many other agencies accept. Is this something we can expect in the future? Kind regards, David.

I couldn't say. Right now it's only Illustrative Editorial.

Thanks,

Mat

It looks like face detection software has been implemented.  I uploaded a photo with a crowd of people with their backs to the camera.  There was one person I hadn't noticed in the corner who was facing the camera.  The system flagged it right away.

Yes, correct. If there is what the system determines to be a person in the system with no release attached you should receive a popup warning asking you to confirm your intent to submit without a release.

Mat, I noticed that the checkbox is not active for videos.
Are there any plans to expand the editorial program to videos?
