Hi @mat
one week has past and the Free Collection files still in review  ?

Yes @Souf10, this is a work in progress. Results will likely be announced sometime around the end of November. Thanks for your patience!

-Mat Hayward

We're around the end of November, do you have any news or expected delay on the annoucements? Thanks!

You should see payments arrive in your account balance before the end of the day today if you opted in and any of your assets were approved.

Thank you for your patience,

Mat Hayward

Hi Mat, I did receive an email about accepted content. Will there be more wave of acceptance as I only had 6% accepted from the preselection/nominated assets, I expected more since so many were elligible? (I'm happy with what I have but was curious as to what to expect).

Thanks!

Hi. I have a question. I just got an e-mail. I have 8 vector files selected. When I look at my Adobe Contributor account, it says "in review" on my other vector files. I sent about 80 vector files. Can files with "in review" also be selected later? Or is the time over? It says FREE on my 8 selected files. Others still say "in review".

I know the numbers are different for different people, but from the past and other people, and Mat, large numbers of individual images are not being accepted. Same thing with photos when that happened. 6% might be better than average.  :)

Last time for photos, there was a second round of selection, and back then, there was a final date, up until that date, more images could be accepted.

The full selection should now be complete. I don't anticipate any additional files being taken at this time. Thank you for your participation and engagement here. I'll be sure to post any updates should there be any.

All the best,

And the free section is now over 1 million items...

I'm not even in still photography I sure saw how free and nearly free pretty much ended the stock video business for individual contributors, between all these deals the agencies (market makers) do and the subscriptions that will earn us more "incremental revenue" it's over, the agencies will do ok, the stuff is selling but not for us.

I think startups and startups people grow up in a very crime free sheltered world in which theft and piracy doesn't exist, why wouldn't anyone download the entire free collection here and from every other free site, for their own use to to resell it illegally under the table?.

Inflation is taking the price of everything to the moon except stock content, it's staying the course and racing to the bottom with free or nearly free.

The agencies are making money and I think it's through all the side deals and back channels they have with agencies around the world.

This is worse that the stock market and the market makers that traders complain about so much, you can see bank in day, swing and options trading but not here.

I think I know why the agencies give work (product) away for free, it's not their content, it's ours and our loss.

I was messaging with a college student last week, he does storm chasing and I do a lot of editorial and his first question was "how do you sell it?, stock is free".  I said yea, used to make $3500/month doing this but not anymore and looking for a 2nd job, it's not good.

Today I'm looking for a new job period.

Looking at the counts of various types of content, it appears there are lots of new illustrations and vectors in the free collection this morning.

Compared to my last check November 15th, vectors have jumped to 112k (seems to vary by which sort order you pick) 79k (from 18.5k) and illustrations to 21k from 7k. Total free collection is now 959,977 - not far from a million high-quality free images :(

Please free collection link - if possible.

Where do I check which of my files are selected (and got paid)? I see some extra money in my balance, but I have no idea exactly how much I get and which files are selected. Please advise.

Hopefully this is what you are looking for. I believe you must have an Adobe account and be logged in. Someone can verify that?
