Title: Adobestock-Pond5: did I miss something?
Post by: roboz on August 26, 2019, 19:39
Hi everyone,

Just wondering if I missed something ... I am about to upload some older footage to Adobestock. Out of curiosity I searched their content and found already the clips online! With me as the author and the source Adobestock/Pond5.

I can't remember of any partnership between these two. And I can't remember agreeing to share my files on both sites.

I didn't contact Adobestock yet, thought maybe someone here can give me a clue.

Thanks in advance,

Rob

I don't know the specifics of it but I they do have a sharing agreement apparently for some content, it might be like their various web and partner schemes but I am not sure which one but yes I have heard that some Pond5 content ends up on Adobe, same like now Reuters/Newsflare content, all 5 million clips is integrated with pond5.

Thanks for your answer.

As this clips are not part of my adobe portfolio yet, I am gonna upload them and see what happens. Wondering if the clips will come up twice in search results.

FYI:  Pond 5 has a "Global Partner Program".  The click box is located in account preferences.  You might be opted in by default.

I think if you keep the filenames the same, you won't have duplicates.

Never really paid attention to it ...

Hi Rob,

As already pointed out, Pond5 has a Global Partner Program which includes Adobe Stock as a partner.  This creates a win-win for stock customers, the artists (you!) and companies like Adobe and Pond5. 

Ultimately, Adobe wants to allow the artist to be successful in the way they feel is best for them.  So, if you upload to several agencies at once (pretty typical) including Pond5 and Adobe, the content you submit to Adobe will be from you.

In your case, you were uploading older content to Stock which came through Pond5 already.  You can keep it like that if you'd like and we'll all be fine.

If you wanted to keep your libraries separate through submission, you can reach out to Pond5 and work with them who would send us a take down request and then you can upload.

Again, whatever works best for you. 

Hope this helps a bit.

Dennis

You know what's cool ... is these Adobe Stock guys frequenting these forums, answering questions and submitting our suggestions n such. It's almost like Adobe cares about artists or something.
