Hello,

As far as I know there is no way to see the number of downloads for photos and videos separately in "My Statistics"? Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

Thanks.

Hi @KoKi,

I'm sorry but you are not wrong. You are not able to filter out sales statistics by asset type.

Is there a way to see how much an image has earned Lifetime on Adobe?

Not easily. Adobe has never followed through on the many suggestions about improving contributor stats - not even to bring them up to the Fotolia level.

If you want to do it the painful way, a year at a time you can list your top sellers and it'll show you the total for that year. Do that for each year the image you're interested in has been online and add them up. It is primitive.

You can copy/paste into a spreadsheet, but work to match up the file numbers across years might not be worth it.

Microstockr. And not just for Adobe but across all platforms.

But it's not free.

Yes, I also use Microstockr for stastics. 2022 AS sales stats: 89 videos, 27 photos (So I'm in the bonus program!)

Am I the only one who still don't see that blue bar in my contributor page? I made more than 2000 sales last year, so I definitely should qualify

If you had 6,000 or more downloads in 2022, you qualified to receive a complimentary code for an Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps one year plan
Lol, I worked hard and beat 5000 this year... And now I need 6000 ;D

Anyway, thanks Matt and thanks to the Adobe!

Same here!  ;D And I was soooo close to 6000. But it's okay, I am satisfied with one app as well.

Great that it's back, but I really dislike the new "active contributor" criteria - it was 2 assets per year for the longest time, and we weren't given ANY notice that there would be a change. So in 2022, I just uploaded the bare minimum - exactly 2 images.

My account has way over 6000 cumulative downloads per year, yet I don't qualify because I didn't upload more than 20 images.

And just this year I was planning to start uploading a lot of generative AI stuff, but now I don't have the tools to edit them properly. And I refuse to subscribe, deliberately, out of principle, as people who have way less downloads per year than me got the complimentary subscription just based on the fact they were more active. So that's a boo for Adobe in my book.

If we were informed during 2022 that 20 assets would be the new requirement, I would have uploaded 20. But by not informing us and then pulling this off, I'd rather pay a one-time fee for Affinity photo, or just learn to use GIMP.

My 2022 uploads were a bit above the new requirement, so I'm exceeding both the 20 uploads and the 6k downloads thresholds.

Nice to see that I will be able to continue to use the Encoder, besides, LR and PS.

Microstockr. And not just for Adobe but across all platforms.

But it's not free.

Yes I know and I've read that before and I've answered before, the agency should provide stats, not make us pay for an outside developer. Plus, the fact that Microstockr can do it and we can see our data back to the start, but only 12 months at a time on the contributor interface, means the information is there, and all it would take is someone at Adobe to care enough to make that available?

What's the reasoning for the only 12 months?

Lifetime Earnings for our images? That's not so difficult to ask for? Some actually useful data for creating more of what sells. Not some of the useless stat like views, that we get from some agencies. Top Earning images? Is that so hard?

Most downloads (lifetime downloads) is there, which is part of the useful data. If they can read that, they can read lifetime earnings.

Is there a way to see how much an image has earned Lifetime on Adobe?

Not easily. Adobe has never followed through on the many suggestions about improving contributor stats - not even to bring them up to the Fotolia level.

Yeah, I suppose, once I do that, and just save the database and add, once every 6 months or something, I'd have it.

I just checked, and I had 666 downloads last year, some of which were videos.  So, other than the obvious reference to the Devil, sounds good.  I rather missed this program last year...

Last time around I got the entire Adobe Suite, but then I never used anything other than LR and PS, so this is just as good for me.

Good its back.

Somewhat annoying that by my best guess i finished up on about 5,900 downloads so just short of the 6,000 for a full package!

Suggestion: Please make it possible to filter the stats by asset type to take the guesswork out of this!


Edit:- Going through numerous CSVs and appears im 170 short of the 6,000.  Doh.

I also wish I could switch but Microstock Analytics still provides some functionality I've come to rely on, but the support just isn't there. Not surprising when the developer is also a very successful photographer, I assume he doesnt have the time to dedicate to it. I cant really blame him but still, frustrating.

When was the most recent bonus program code given in Adobe Stock, and what is its expiration date / redemption deadline? I have saved it, but I'm not sure if I should be pressured to activate it.

Code expires in 12 months. Look at Mat's post in the above thread and you'll see the announcement date

Matt said 250-5999 downloads for 2022 and 20 accepted asset uploads qualify for minimum Bonus.

My Adobe stats seems to show 378 downloads for 2022, and 25 accepted uploads, which sounds as if I might qualify.  How does one find out if they actually DO qualify for the Bonus Program? And if so, what's the process?  I see no Blue Banner on my Contributor Account portal page, so does that mean I somehow did not qualify?

I've searched everywhere on all my Creative Account pages and Contributor Account pages and can't find any reference. Also, love how the "Help from a real person" link launches a virtual assistant that seems to know nothing about the Bonus Program. Interesting.

The support link you described sounds like it was at Adobe.com. Adobe Stock contributors have a dedicated team specifically here for you. The best way to reach us is via the contact us link at the bottom of the contributor portal.

Based on the numbers you shared, it sounds like you have qualified. To be clear, the codes have not yet been applied to the portal. Nobody sees the blue banner yet. When it goes live, I will post here immediately, though I suspect someone will beat me to it. Stay patient.

I already pay for an all apps subscription. Can I use the single app bonus to get a discount?
