I have a sneaky feeling that Mat is laughing at us right now.

Either that, or he's rolling his eyes waaaay back into his skull.

Or, even more likely, he's deep in his 3rd or 4th beer of the evening and couldn't care less what we mumble and grumble about here.

Whichever it is, Mat, please know that we do appreciate you 'round these parts!

I just hope he doesn't drive that armored van after all those beers.  :D

The banner is gone...

The "Eligible for free collection" checkbox on the dashboard isn't - they apparently forgot to remove that :) The nominate slider is gone on the supposedly eligible images though.

As they aren't updating what's eligible/not eligible (as images have made sales that would qualify or disqualify them through the period this offer was live, they didn't add/remove them).

Mat, perhaps you could call a clean-up crew to remove the check box?

Thanks for the input. The filter for nominated assets remains in place by design. This way you can still see what is currently nominated. After the first selection is complete for the free collection (in the next week or two), you will also be able to filter and see only images in the free collection vs. paid. The images that are not approved in this initial round will continue to have the "in review" indicator in the dashboard as the approval process will be ongoing through the summer. The approvals will happen incrementally to make sure that we don't add too much content at any given time.

thanks again,

Mat

Mat,

Something that's not clear - and should have been made very clear at the outset.
Will there be a link / page customers can click on that will show all the free images by a given artist?

Previous posts have show a free images page by certain artists. That, I think, would have been a deal breaker for most people if it had been stated up front. If this the case I'll be very disappointed in Adobe for not disclosing that information.

EDIT:

Actually I think I just answered my own question. I see in Gorodenkoff's gallery the images are interspersed throughout his main portfolio, not sure I like this. Unfortunately I was traveling when this first occurred to me and didn't get the chance to really think It over. I probably would have opted out. Sucks for me I guess.

If you look at my earlier links you can see that from a portfolio page for any artist, you can select the "Free" versus "All" item from the drop down list to look at just the free works.

My bad for not catching that.

That raises a question for me that i don't believe was addressed here yet.

 Are the nominated photos while in "review" still sell as a paid ones for contributor? And if that so what about 4 or less downloads in last 12 months rule? What if while in review they will sell more than 4 times? Will they be removed from nomination/review state ??

I think its very important as if we wasent paid for it yet they dont belong to Adobe free collection, basicly agreement isnt validated yet.

I think this answers your first question:

Yes. Your nominated Adobe Stock asset will remain available for licensing in the paid collection unless and until it is approved and moved to the free collection.

That with more than 4 sales is not a hard and fast rule, IMO. I don't see any disadvantage in an image  being sold while waiting, if you nominated it for free anyway.

First quote is about nominations but dosnt clear up if photos that are now in review or stay like this for months will sell normaly till approved. Im guessing they should but recently in stock nothing is like it should.

About 4 sales rule it does make a difference as many summer assets start to sell again and in one month brings much more than 5$ per 12months.

Im not discusing if its fair or not but if we had any detailed info about it. That way if nominations come again for new photos or videos we know everything behind process before agree again.

The problem is not if nomination sell during review time but if they dont sell. They should sale as long they not directly to download in free collection.

My opinion is, that on the 23th of June, when files were "locked", all files with less than 4 dl's  will count as "less than 4 downloads", even if they are downloaded while waiting for review.

And you were not able to consider this when you had the option to pick which photos to offer Adobe for 5$ until 2 days ago?   ???

If you had any images in your port where you expected sales to really take off during summer, you probably should not have checked the box that allowed Adobe to pick the image for the free collection.

It's interesting to note one of the images Adobe wanted to give me $5 for so the freeloaders can have it free sold this week 2X 0.99c and 1X $3.30... You do the math... and it previously had 4 sales so far this year.

Lol, I made 4 bucks on instant pay for a picture of a half eaten hotdog (my lunch that day) that took ten seconds back in 2006 and has never sold anywhere for anything.

And you were not able to consider to read the question before answering? Its not your busines what i did or did not and even more im not iterested in your opinion with attitude of all know someone without answer.

If you have crystal ball and know what will sell good for you. Question was simple and obviously you arent the person that can answer it unless you work for Adobe.

Any idea when all of this will start moving?

It probably already is. Mat said they will be rolling this through the whole summer, so I think, it can take month or two, before any of our images are selected - if any, of course. Also, they will have to go through 10s of thousands of images, so it will take a while.

Looking at the total in the Free collection (visible to buyers; no idea what's going on behind the scenes) it's the same this morning as it was on Friday.

The initial round of approvals is happening this week. The process will continue through the summer in waves.

Thank you, good luck!

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

Pretty sure individualy, if they pick 5 of 1000 nominated you propably gonna see five 5$ sales for picked photos like you see regular sales.
