Did anyone get some approved photos?

LOL I predict that will be the next negative, I'm offended, thread "how could they miss my images, I got nothing approved!" Of course the people who rejected the plan will have nothing to complain about, they didn't participate. No fear of rejection, it's an automatic, opt out.

So if I clicked everything with no sales, ever, and no sales anywhere else, why would Adobe suddenly think MY images were valuable enough to give away as free examples of the quality, to attract new buyers? I think there's a logical contradiction in that. But I still selected a bunch, because $5 is much more than they got for me so far in over 10 years?

Always remember:

If I don't like it, I can go watch the Sunset and have a beer.

My question is simple and ordinary. Nothing negative. I was expecting simple answer (yes or no).
People who see a negativity somewhere where it is not are having quite depressing life.

Anyway, my quiestion is still valid :)

I agree, this offer was an option available to us. After all, AS exists to make money, you either participate or you don't. You are free.



No, there are no events yet.

I've been tapping F5 on my AS dashboard for a week now - still nothing. I can't wait much longer, I have cows to milk and pigs to feed!  :D

Will payments come through individually as they're reviewed or a lump sum?

The payment will be added to your account in one lump sum each time a batch is selected. If, for example you had 100 approved files, you will see your balance increase by $500. I expect this will be happening within the next 24 hours so take note of your balance right now. You should also see an email with the number of photos approved if any and the amound of money added into your account.

Good luck everyone!

The numbers in the Free collection have shot up today. It appears almost all in photos.

Total (all asset types) is now 316,836 of which 273,478 are photos and 23,830 are vectors.

Compare that to June 1 when the Free collection totaled 78,381 with 52,456 photos and 14,990 vectors.

Just doing some test searches shows many more have free content than did before this intake - it'll be interesting to see how badly this hits sales for similar paid content (I know the party line that it won't, but I'm too old to buy that yarn)

I just got word that the first batch of approvals are complete. The approved photos have been transferred and the payments will be added into your accounts by tomorrow at the latest.

Thanks everyone for your feedback and participation! Remember, this is just the first wave of approvals. We need to monitor the collection to make sure we maintain the balance so we are attracting new customers and increasing sales with the free collection. This is extremely important to us. To do so, the approval process must be incremental. I'll be sure to keep this thread updated as new information comes my way.

Thanks again,

Mat Hayward

OK

I used this link https://stock.adobe.com/search/free?creator_id=200571845 and changed that ID number with my contributor ID number, it shows 17 photos in free, I'm not sure though, if this is correct.

Ouch, 74 out of 2500.

I just reviewed the content Adobe suggests I nominate... My conclusion taking everything into consideration is that this offer is only shooting yourself in the foot. Stepping over dollars to pick up pennies.


Not all as simple as you are making it. In my case, I nominated images with no sales, it wasn't complicated or difficult to decide. If accepted that's more than the zero they have brought me in the past.

Watch for more to be following this idea, which is very similar to Instant Pay. "trending now..." free images to attract buyers.  :-\
For me it is not even that simple. Many of my nominated images with no sales are similars that have never made it through - because other pictures from the series have. Once the one with no sales starts being offered for free, it will kill the whole series. So, be careful, look at your nominated no sellers, if they are part of a series that otherwise sells well.

Your similar don't kill a series but one for free will?

Sorry Mat, is this a joke - only about 70 photos out of 2500 in the free section! I feel deceived!  >:(

I got 17 out of 600, so the ratio is similar

Did they pay you already for the images that are accepted in the free collection?

I see there is a new button: "Filter by Price Tier", that shows the free images.

Hi Mat, are the batches of each individual user examined or is the review done by file number?

It's really hard to believe that so many people are so excited about getting $5 for an image that will be free for a whole year. Tres bizarre. Even more bizarre one of the so called top microstock photographers is lining up at the trough for this. Times must be very tough indeed.
