Has anybody bulk deleted content from adobe stock platform?

I see the delete button, but when I select multiple it just brings up the 'add to collection' option.

When I check the api, it looks like it is meant for search features and not account management.

Open to any guidance.

I'm sorry but there is no bulk-delete option at Adobe Stock. You can only remove files one at a time.

@MatHayward to be clear, you're saying the only option is to select images and delete one by one? So if I need to delete 5,000 images, I have to do so 1 by 1? Is this what you offer to larger partner agencies too?

Has anyone deleted thousands or hundreds of images from adobe stock at one time? Did you have to go through one by one to delete?

Also curious if agencies or those with larger catalogs had to do it this way also

So Mat just told you no, it cannot be done. No matter how many times you ask, it cannot be done.  Although, I think there is a way.  Close your account.

To be clear, you do know that larger agencies get better options...like how we small folks get pushed to the portal, larger agencies get better submission options. Why don't you mind your business if you don't have anything useful to add dd

Same thing to you ddb...don't say anything if you don't know what you're talking about. The question is directed to people who know about the better options provided to larger agencies and contributors.

If you are slightly familiar with scripting, you may be able to use one of those web crawler tools to automated the process.

I read that sentence several times to try to understand it, looked up both those terms, read the sentence again several times, and still don't understand it.
LOL.

No shame in asking when you are not familiar with a concept.
Here are some definitions:

Scripting language (also known as scripting, or script) is a series of commands that are able to be executed without the need for compiling. While all scripting languages are programming languages, not all programming languages are scripting languages. PHP, Perl, and Python are common examples of scripting languages.


A web crawler (also known as a web spider or web robot) is a program or automated script which browses the World Wide Web in a methodical, automated manner.

This process is called Web crawling or spidering.

Many legitimate sites, in particular search engines, use spidering as a means of providing up-to-date data.
...
Crawlers can also be used for automating maintenance tasks on a Web site,....
... like for example, deleting 5,000 files without getting the carpal tunnel syndrome.  ;)

I used Katalon Recorder for the same job on a different site that would only allow deleting images one a time. It's free.

the clear this one up-- Do you want to remove all your images on AS? If so, than closing your account is the smartest and fastest way.

That's the real answer, but then we wouldn't have another Duck Thread to laugh at?

That's been the answer since the start, close the account and let Adobe do the deletions.

Not all of it, if It was all of the content, then yes that totally makes sense to delete the account. Right now the script seems to be the best option. On other sites where I'm removing everything I just deleted the account entirely.

Yes deleting the account would be perfect if I was removing everything, but for now the script is best option.

As for upload options, the larger agencies don't have to use the portal, they may just send the images/metadata through aws or some other cloud platform and have it ingested by the adobe team. We used to have this option but were recently told we are too small of an agency - under the new leadership.

Our experience with the big 3 has pretty much always been submit it and they will ingest.

So if you were a bigger agency, they would also delete specific images, without the wholesale, close the account answer, as the only way? Wow, that's considerate.  ::)

As a small person myself, not an agency in any way, and without the knowledge or insight of Mat, I wonder if you could send a list of the images and ask Adobe to remove them. You need to have a way to say what you want removed, so they can know, or you won't have anything to give them.

Yes that's a good point. I do have a list of all of the images, so if I could send them a list of what we'd want removed, that could definitely work too (would be preferred). The only response from adobe has been what Mat said on this forum, though. So for now, the script will be my best option.
