Thank you Mat for the information ! I see that most of my eligible images are old and almost forgotten. It is a real gift.

Mat,

I see in the terms it says the photos are sold under a commercial licence. What does this mean? How does it compare to standard, enhanced, extended licences?

Cheers

Photos in the free collection are downloaded with the Standard license.

No one is going to pay for an image on one site that he can get for free on other sites

This seems true until you factor in laziness / apathy or pure ignorance that an image is available for free on the part of many buyers.

I am assuming that the customer is paying for this service, an annual or monthly fee for x amount of photos. So the photos are not really free.

Your assumption is incorrect. All that is required to download free content is an Adobe ID. The intent is to convert the Free users to paid subscriptions where they can download content from the paid portfolios of contributors.

Try a different browser. I've seen a few reports of this and the browser switch seems to do the trick in most cases. Sorry about the hassle.

Mat,

1. It says that you are submitting your work for consideration to be included.... Can you confirm that if the contributor submits photos,  all their files will be included in the Free Collection or will Adobe  filter a certain amount from your approved collection.  For example. You will take all 50 from the nominated or hand pick from the 50

2. What is the size of the photo collection in the Adobe Free Collection

Cheers

After the 23rd, the nominated files will be reviewed and considered. Not all nominated files will be accepted. The first batch of accepted assets will be moved to the free collection shortly after the nomination period closes on June 23, 2001, at 9am PDT. We may accept additional files from your nominated photos and move them in batches to the free collection until September 30, 2021. You will be notified and receive payments for each accepted batch of photos should that occur.

Sorry, I missed the 2nd part of your question regarding the size of the collection.

We don't have a fixed collection size we are after here. The intent is to have breadth without depth. In other words, we want to continue to capture the basic needs of most buyers and then convert them with more offerings in the paid collection after they've tried our service.

As many of you know, last year Adobe Stock launched a free collection to drive traffic to the marketplace. The initial collection was limited to participation from a very small number of Adobe Stock Contributors. We were pleased with the results: traffic did increase and many visitors who initially came for free content converted to paying customers, resulting in added revenue for the larger Contributor community.   

Its now time to refresh and expand the program. For a limited time starting on June 7, many of you will see a banner in the dashboard section of the Adobe Stock Contributor portal. The banner gives you the opportunity to nominate qualified photos from your portfolio. You can nominate all eligible files (photos only at this time), or you can go through the Dashboard and nominate individual files. Please note that your best-selling images are exempt from this program. We will not be accepting any images that received more than 4 downloads in the past 12 months.   

You have until June 23 to nominate any or all your eligible files. After that, the banner will go away, and our moderation team will quickly review the submissions.   

A big difference between the Adobe Stock free collection and other sites offering content for free is that we are paying Contributors up front for participation. For every file approved for the free collection, we are paying a one-time rate of $5 (If paid in USD currently. Otherwise, 5 credits in your currency) . This payment is for 12 months of non-exclusive use in the free collection. After the 12 months are up, the files will automatically be returned into your paid collection. 
Please see the FAQ for more details, and let me know if you have any additional questions not covered there.

Hello Matt, how are you?, I'm trying to agree with the addendum but it's not working. only works from tomorrow?

Thanks

I switched from Chrome to Edge, but the Agree button is still grayed out. The same happens on my mobile.

One more question, after one year, will all the potential upcoming free downloads be considered by the ranking algorithm, or in other words, will these free downloads help the visibility of these files?

I asked the team about the potential impact on your photos after the year expires and they are added back into your paid portfolio. As a disclaimer, I must say that we cant make any promises here. The mission of search is to offer the most relevant results to the customer. What we can say is that your photos in the free collection will provide our search algorithm with more information about its value or relevance to particular search queries. Since there is no payment barrier, its likely your accepted photos will see a lot more interaction with customers than they would in the paid collection. If your images prove to be relevant to what the customers need in the free collection, its likely they will perform better in your paid portfolio than they did before they were added to the free collection.

You have to take this with a grain of salt though as there are many variables at play.

I doesn't look like you have to scroll down in the terms box, but you do, to turn the link to Agree active.

I haven't decided whether to participated but I did take a look to see what had a "nominate" button next to it.

If a file has zero downloads, even if it was uploaded in the last couple of months, it appears not to be eligible. Many that have one or two downloads do have a nominate option - but some which have just one or two downloads do not have a nominate button.

Are all zero download images excluded, even if they're recent?

For recent images with one or two downloads, why are the ones selected or not selected? Is it subject matter or some other internal stat that we can't see (like views, or presence/absence of keywords)?

I could not select photos using Chrome  but then I used Firefox and it worked. Naturally the selected ones now appear as such back in Chrome.

The only definite disqualifier I know is if a file has had more than 4 downloads in the past 12 months. It will be easier to tell if any of your images with zero downloads are eligible after the filter is in place (which should be very soon now). I don't have any information available as to the specific criteria for what was and was not selected.

How do we see which images are "nominated"?  I'm not seeing any mark or buttons...

eta: never mind, I see it on images with more than 0 downloads.

Is there any way to see only all the "nominated" images in one search?

Any minute now, a filter will be enabled so you can see them all. FYI, there are images with 0 downloads that are eligible. I'll post an update once the filter is live.

So if you agree to these images going into the free collection, would you need to pull them from other sites?

No, this is a non-exclusive agreement. You can keep your content online at other sites.

It's helpful to have the filter. It makes it very clear to me that I'm not going to participate.

Lots of things I would nominate aren't in the list; 9/10 of what is in the nominate list I won't include.

There were four images with 0 downloads (that I noticed) that were in the thousand or so that were eligible. No clue why they were eligible and others not.

Then there were a handful uploaded earlier in 2021 that had one or two downloads that were on the list - I think they'll get more paid downloads but they haven't been up for that long, so I'm not interested in adding those. I think images less than 6 months old really aren't great candidates (from a contributor's point of view).

It only takes about 3 of the "custom" downloads at ~$1.75-$1.90 to make more than the $5 an image will make in the free section, so slow but regular sellers will do better in the paid section, IMO. Everyone's situation will be different, but excluding all the zero download images makes this a non-starter for me.

Currently, we are refreshing the photos in our free collection. We may have an option to nominate additional asset types in the future. I will be sure to post updates in MSG if that comes to be.
