Thanks for the questions everyone. I don't have any additional information to provide about how royalties are calculated beyond what is listed in the FAQ at this time. I'll share relevant updates here when available.

FYI, I'll be celebrating the holiday season with my family after this Friday and will remain offline through the beginning of January. I'll check in when I can, but please be patient with any delayed responses.

I hope that you all have a fantastic and safe holiday season!

Mat Hayward

Oh I'm hurt. I thought WE were your family?  ;)

Have a great holiday season and vacation.

Yes of course "Uncle" Pete. I meant my other family.

Pete LOL! I seriously doubt that Mat ever had that impression.  :P

Well in a very distant conceptual way maybe?   ;D

He is our advocate and sometimes the artists voice and connection to Adobe. I'll go with that?

I kind of think of everyone here as a sort of family? Common business interest and some an avocation.

...Is there any minimum royalty in effect?

Having watched the custom royalties after the Pro Edition was announced in April, I have been happy to note that nothing has been lower than the 38 cent minimum on subscription royalties....

Mat would not provide more information at the time about contributors seeing lower rates for sales than 38 cents (for me; 33 or 36 cents depending on lifetime sales).

I've been watching the numbers since and had been pleased to see nothing below 38 cents for a custom sale, and in January, some higher custom amounts than in 2021 - $1.99, $2.20, $4.95 instead of $1.2x or $1.3x)

Until this evening. I had a "custom" sale for 33 cents. Then a second one.

I am really upset that Adobe's gone this route. I realize this is only one two sales, but it means they've eliminated the floor on royalty amounts and punched a hole in the dyke.

So far, none of those for me. But there's still time.

My custom licenses for January range from $0.36 to $2.08 so far. Busiest month on Adobe Stock for me in a while, which is unusual since January has traditionally been very slow, and better earnings than the past few months, with a week still to go. So far, the new custom licenses don't seem to be hurting. Will need more data to be sure. Adobe grew a lot for me in the past year (up 65% from 2020), despite not having added many new images. I only put 3 images into the free collection, so that did not skew my earnings.

Thanks, Mat for your presence here - nice to feel like Adobe has our back. Hope you had a wonderful holiday season with the family. For us, it was so great to be able to travel and see our daughter and grandson after a quiet Christmas in 2020. Though I have to say I was pretty freaked out by the number of maskless folks as we drove cross-country. Fortunately, we all remain Covid-free.

Thanks for your input Jo Ann,

Enterprise sales are not bound to a minimum royalty guarantee and can be higher or lower than payouts for subscription plans.
