If you have ever uploaded images to Yayimages (Yaymicro), check your pictures in their portfolio on Adobe https://stock.adobe.com/ru/contributor/208541429/yay-images
If you find that they are selling your pictures, soon your photos have a chance to be transferred  to Adobe free download section discussed above.

I don't see any banner or way to nominate files on my dashboard. Am I missing something? Can anyone screencap what it looks like?

See this snippet from my Dashboard - if you don't have any photos, perhaps that's why you don't see this?

No I don't have photos, I thought it would also count for vectors/illustrations. Makes sense now, thanks!

Is it only on the Russian site?
It takes very very long to open it - from Indonesia.
I tried to change the region - because I remember where the link should be, but then I got PAGE NOT FOUND. Maybe Yay only offers in Russia? To get not known about it from it own contributors, who have to contact each and all sites personally if they want their images delete there, because Yay does not care about keeping selling without paying their contributors. For me it is new, that they also sell on Adobe.

Try this link https://stock.adobe.com/contributor/208541429/yay-images?load_type=author&prev_url=detail
Or find for example image id 383611053 an click on the author Yay Images.

P.S. Now Yay Images page doesn't exist. Maybe they were banned after my complains.

Will we know if our accepted images are being downloaded in the free collection and how many times?

Mat,

How will artists know when and which images are chosen?

Will there be some sort of notation on the images in our portfolios? Perhaps another filter in the collections?

Or will they just disappear from our portfolios?

I would think we need some kind of record of the images as to the date there are no longer for sale in our portfolios and the date they are expected back on sale for us. Especially since there is to be three waves of acceptance, it could get confusing and difficult to track.

Thanks for you answers.

No, there are no stats available for content in the free collection.

thanks for the question,

Mat

You will receive an email notification with the number of images that were accepted and the payment amount deposited into your Adobe Stock balance. You should be able to see the files you have accepted in the free collection in the dashboard section of the portal. I will double check as to what that will look like specifically and get back to you.

Thanks,

Mat Hayward

Some of my photos were tagged.  The common point of all these images is that all already sold, via Adobe and other sites, more that 4 copies, except for a single one.  But I sold full resolution copies of that one via other site..   If someone who purchased a copy was to find the image available for free, do you think its a returning customer?  If another agency also has the image in their catalogue, that is a good way to kill competition.  Its good for Adobe but for photogs?  Those who maintain portfolios with many agencies may find it difficult if they opt in to have their image accepted on other sites. 

Not knowing the number of downloads of free images is a major show stopper and for that reason alone I would not opt in.  Is it positive exposure to have your work available for free-I wonder....?  How much would it cost to purchase from Adobe a photo licensed for unlimited use for a year?

My sales dropped dramatically at Adobe last year. Is it the creation of that database of free images on Adobe that resulted in decreased sales?

Hi Matt. I have a question about completing the nomination process. I have nominated selected images on my dashboard and I am using Firefox at 100%. However I am not seeing a contributor agreement that has been mentioned elsewhere as completion to the nomination process.. Is there something that i need to do to prompt this agreement? Thanks Matt.

Well written. I'm afraid that this is becoming a standard, other agencies are following. In fact, Adobe is just forced to do the same. If we would be given 3, 4 or 5$ per picture for a year or whatever use, in the future, who will produce the content for that price I wonder? This time maybe we can bite the story these pictures are not selling anyway, but next time they will offer us the same amount for much better sellers. This doesn't look good.  I've already made enough for financial independence (4% rule), thanks to microstock in the last 10 years, buy I pity the young and coming, having to deal with this cruel and unfair working environment.
