Hi all,
We apologize. The email many of you received was sent to the wrong recipient list. You received it if you had vector and illustration files which you had a chance to opt in in August. We'll send out a retraction and an apology.
If you have eligible videos, check out your dashboard in the contributor portal and nominate as many as you'd like. Note, we only selected ones which has 0 sales in the last 12 months. Also, if you chose to renew them for the free collection next year, you'll be paid again.
Hello. You have chosen very few of my videos for free collection. Why? I have a huge portfolio, but you only picked a couple hundred videos. Are you limited in quantity? Choose from me not 200 videos, but 2000-20000 videos.

Correct, only a select number of clips are eligible for nomination. Not the entire video collection. Also, as Kirsten noted above, only clips with zero sales in the last 12 months are eligible.

Thanks for the question,

Mat Hayward

I have several thousand videos that have 0 sales in the last 12 months. But why did you choose only 200 videos, take them all.

@Mat
I understand well how marketing dept in big company works, and probably 8$ for a one year free clip has been calculated on download numbers/earnings, but sometimes numbers should have a more different perspective.
I'm absolutely happy with your offer: we can opt out, and we can select what's in and what's not, and this is absolutely fair from my point of view.
BUT
I've just sold (right now!) for 70$ one of the nominated clips.
Of course it's a coincidence, and of course this is something that do not happen every day;
but, in general terms, we all know that a clip can generate a much higher revenue than 8$ in one year.

If you have the option to report this notice (the general terms I mean, not my own sales! :-) ) to your sales dept, maybe they will rethink the amount of 8$ offer for one year in free market. It's really too low, and the risk for Adobe is to spent money to gain only poor and old clips

Only my thoughts: I'm not a "company", but I know that sometimes it's hard for a company to understand some little human reasoning :-)

I dont understand at all how they choose videos from the authors portfolio, on what basis. I don't care if my videos sold in the last 12 months or not, but they chose very few videos from me, they chose a monotonous video, 70% of the same story. I personally would like all my videos to be featured in the free collection if I get paid to do so. I don't care if it's $8 or more. Okay, they say they only take what hasn't sold in a year, great, let them take it. But they do not take, but choose very few videos.

sure, many of us would like AS to take all our work, but that's not how it works

you're new here, but once again you should read the rules before you post - the process is explained, and it never said they'd take anything you want

cascoly, what rules are you talking about? I'm just trying to figure out why adobe does not take a lot of videos into the free collection, and why the selection is so weak in content.

it really helps to start at the first post!

Hi Everyone,

Heads up! Videos will be eligible for nomination into the Adobe Stock Free collection starting tomorrow (Tuesday, October 11). An email with detailed information will be sent to those of you with eligible content, tomorrow morning (PDT). Check your inbox then, and let me know if you have any questions after you read it.

Thank you,

Mat Hayward

They only chose one, but I havent uploaded many videos to Adobe.

Can we upload illustrative editorial video?

I didn't get an email either. There's a notification on my dashboard, but I never go on my dashboard normally, so wouldn't have known about it If I hadn't seen this thread. I have 32 eligible videos, two have 2 downloads, four have 0 downloads and the rest all have 1 download, so not quite sure what's going on there.

8$ per year...? Very, very low...

I did nominate images... but I won't do it for video... this is such a low price. Not worth it.

The idea of putting up an $8 video is a good idea. This is advertising for the portfolio and income. But, it makes sense if adobe selects more videos.
In general, I recommend Adobe to create a subscription collection following the example of Envato Elements, I am ready to give all my videos to it. I think that subscription sales will bring more income.

Didn't receive any letters. I don't think this is true.

cretino would say that inside only their own head.

You haven't understand nothing on how it works; it would be nice if you read the rules before giving away your ideas.

First of all, Adobe has already subscription offers alive.
Second, the "8$ proposal" is for one year of your clip in the free section; nothing to do with subscriptions.
Last but not least, you cannot give away your full portfolio: Adobe "nominate" some elegible assets, and AFTER this they choose a (little) slice of them to be payed for the free section.

So, usually if you have, let's say, 1000 clips, you will find 300 nominated for the 8$ proposal, and after this a small part, let's say 30, will be accepted and payed.

Please read before posting strange opinions

derby, I'm in the stock business more than you, for sure. No need to send me to where you yourself have not been.
As for prices and subscriptions, you dont understand what a modern subscription is at all. Compare prices here

I'm sure you're a top expert, so it seems you don't need to read what we're talking about  ;D

You're simply talking and talking and put comments about something completely different, something that has nothing to do with the thread; the title is "Adobe stock free video collection".
Where should be the link between subscription offers and free assets? Only you expert could see

And that's all :)

They are selecting more videos, it's just those videos are from other people. If they select every video of yours then they have to select every video of everyone else .. and then there won't any paid videos on the site. Everything is free!

your claim to competence would be stronger if you posted a portfolio link, rather than jumping into conversations you haven't bothered to read

For the most recent free collection exercise which was for illustrations if I recall, I went through all the nominated files and selected / deselected files according to their sales and sales potential. In the final stage selection, not one file was selected. So seems pretty pointless to run through this again and given $8 a video compared to $5 an image, I too will opt out of this one.

Perhaps a little calculation will help to assess how to value the $8 offer for the Free Collection (just crossed my mind):

For photos, $5 is offered in the Free Collection with a minimum sale price of $0.33-$0.38 depending on account status - so about a 13:1 ratio ( 5 / 0.38 = 13.15).

If we now extrapolate the $8 in the Free Collection offer for videos to the minimum price for videos, which as far as I know is $2.80, this should actually result in a 13:1 ratio for the video offer of $2.80*13 = $36.40 per Free Video.
(If the $2.80 is not the minimum price for videos, please correct me here).

So the $8 seems like a very bad deal to me...

Don't get me wrong, AS is certainly one of the better platforms for us providers, but this offer is not a good one.

I will for sure denominate my assets, simply 8$ for a year is not right...
