Adobe has been dead for me the last few weeks. Still not a big player in video sale IMO

My May in Adobe was very good. June was worst month in a year. July on track to be worst month since 2015.

My download *numbers* are steady the last few weeks.  But my download revenue is way way down below 50% of average.  2-3 weeks ago something happened and my steady revenue per download over many months dropped massively.

I find it comes in waves... you either get a load of better value sales or nothing at all. I'm on the latter at the moment and feels like every sale is begrudged. Even more bizarre is that my 30 day rolling income this year is only 0.143% different to the same 30 days last year... consistent.

Edit... just to be fair, Adobe has consistently been better each month this year when compared to the same month last year. It has been a good year so far.

Same thing for me. I don't have a large portfolio but I usually sell several images a week. I haven't sold a SINGLE ONE since Fotolia went over to Adobe in May. Something is definitely off. Maybe a minor dip on SS but Adobe has been dead.

For me something changed suddenly on the week of June 17th and income has dropped ever since.

Its fairly clear on the graph when something changed and the average dropped suddenly.  What seems to be the case is actual download *number* are constant or increasing but the actual earnings have dropped severely.

The big spikes after that are occasional video sales.  (The bizarre february bit is when they overpaid then adjusted so leaving a negative week)

Similar thing happened to me at about that time. June finished well but mainly due to the start of the month. July was bad. August has been better but mainly due to a handful of footage sales but it has felt like there has been a slight improvement

When I looked at the FT site a week or so back, each image had a notice on it saying they were no longer taking new orders and that you had to go to AS (where the licence information per size is) but now you can buy images again through credits?!? Maybe they've changed their mind  ;D ;D
