And that is a shame because I estimate that close to half of my income comes from editorial content. Mainly photos but some video too. And I'm a full time stock photographer so I know there's a large market for it.

And since Adobe does not accept editorial, it's probably the most forgiving when it comes to recognizable people in photos. Images that would not be accepted on other agencies because of recognizable people, pass on Adobe. That could be a problem.

Still a newbie but i beleive that eng editorial sublects (from reuters and similar) as migrant crisis, politics, environmental issues, sports etc are a whole totally diferent world than stock editorials on local markets, walks, landmarks, whatever from around the world is classified as editorial but actually have no "news"worthy value.

Please, please, please start accepting non-people editorial.  I understand not wanting to feed and encourage paparazzi but adding editorial places and things would be great for both AdobeStock and it's contributors.

Exactly. There are a lot of places, like travel destinations or even shops or product brands, which have a lot of value in stock photography but do not classify as news worthy.

Not news but still editorial, not only because they include elements that are not released and cannot be Commercial, but even because they are essentially sought by the editorial press like magazines or newspapers, and not by advertisers.

As an example, I have a photo of a name of a Bank on a building which has been involved in an ongoing scandal for years now. It's far from my best seller but it regularly sells. Why? Because economy and financial sections of newspapers and magazines need images to illustrate an article about that bank.

When it comes to travel places and tourist destinations, then the sales multiply incomparably. I believe I could almost double my income on Adobe with the acceptance of my editorial portfolio. In fact, I believe it's the reason why I still sell about half of what Shutterstock gives me.

20 to 25% but all Mat can do is report that we would really appreciate the ability to share our editorial content. I could sure use a boost.

Around the time I found out Adobe was buying Fotolia I was sent a question or survey by Adobe. I remember I was asked if I thought Adobe should start accepting Editorial Video. I had never made editorial footage and still haven't but have made and uploaded a lot of editorial pictures to many sites.
If Adobe had asked me if I thought they should start accepting editorial images I would have said YES! but, I wasn't asked that.
Now, seeing this thread, I do think Adobe Stock should start accepting from contributors footage as well as editorial images as soon as possible. I think it would be great because it's a great idea. There are so many editorial newsworthy things that local photographers and makers of moving images that business people are looking to buy/license and it can add quite a bit to the bottom line of Adobe and Contributors as well as contributing to the local news images and stories. Hopefully someone from Adobe Stock will see this opinion and please start asking for and accepting editorial images and footage from existing and future contributors. Thanks Adobe! :~)

I am amazed how well editorial video sells and some for very high prices.

You just need to look at the pond5 thread where people post sales results, a really superhigh percentage is editorial.

There are so many local festivals, daily life situations that professional suppliers cannot provide.

The world is a very large place, so please Mat, ask them to reconsider, at least for video.

True for stills as well!

+1 both stills (which account for a lot of my sales elsewhere since travel is a big part of my portfolio - but even pix of e.g. the NYC marathon from 2010 that I took as a bystander still sell regularly 9 years later). Wish Id taken video too. So Mat please let them know were interested. I think the lack of editorial is why my ports at SS, Alamy  & yes even dreamstime do better when Adobe should have an advantage. Thanks Mat

Indeed. We are not talking about newsworthy stuff just non released people and property. Also trademarks. That sells a lot in SS...

Thanks everyone for chiming in on this important topic.  Love the feedback and do know that we're always evaluating what can be done to make our service and our contributors more successful.

Out of curiosity, how many people here are talking about video vs photos?

I'm talking about photos that contain non released property or people and also with trademarks. That would be a good thing for AS. Specially when AS Latinamerica is making a huge effort in marketing (I follow them on social media), they need to realize that many Central and South American countries are not "covered" in terms of trademarks or street photos with non released people/property. I sell a lot of those pictures in SS and iS, even if I'm not a professional.

Not sure about video or "newsworthy" assets.

Myself, little or no video, all about Editorial photos. Mine are released media material, not public news or things without a release that get marked "Editorial".

I'm sure there are a variety of different ways that people here work. I'm actually restricted from taking video at many events as Television owns the rights.

Both!  About 25% of my video and photo portfolios are travel editorial.  They sell nearly as well as the commercial shots.  I think journalists and bloggers don't want signs removed from cityscapes and streetscapes.  They want realism.  Accepting editorial would be beneficial for buyers, contributors and AdobeStock.

Both photo and video with frequent travels to European cities, covering the posibillity of direct fast uploads on the spot, in case of breaking news or public events that do not need press releases.

Hi Dennis,
Both editorial pictures and editorial video would be a most welcome addition to what can be uploaded from current and future contributors that can be licensed on Adobe Stock. I have uploaded a lot of well selling editorial pictures but, I can see the potential in editorial footage and will start making editorial video next time I make editorial pictures.
Please open Adobe to accepting editorial pictures as well as editorial footage.
Thanks for your consideration.
:~)

Hello Adobe,

all my Karneval Cologne 2019 will soon be available for sale at pond5 and Shutterstock.

Dont you want content that looks truly local and real?

You are non exclusive, you dont have to take everything...but why leave the contract with CNN and BBC to other companies.

Would it be a bad suggestion if Adobe for ther time only asked us, current contributors, to upload editorials? Would this be unfair to those who do not upload to Adobe? It could be "safer" for the company for now, as they know our style and can review our past work, plus they know our sales volume! If they do not open editorials to everyone, they could very well cope with not having to deal with a flood of people uploading just everything. That might mean longer review times and more server space. Both parts lose money from not being able to submit/accept editorials. Some local events are lost in that way. For example, I justed returned from Venice carnival. Searching for example around stock agencies with live news stock or exclusive ones, I must have been the only one climbing up the Saint Mark's square Campanile (ok, elevator use!) to have panoramic view photos and videos of the stage and event. Would't Adobe want to use and gain money from that? I am sure we can all add our examples of missed Adobe editorial opportunities here! I just do not know if that thing, the suggetion we are trying to do, will only be a paper an employee will forward to its superiors, only to be left in a drawer, or not.

What I think is that they must already understand the whole panorama of accepting or not editorial photos and they are postponing the choice. It is impossible that they are so blind about that.

The problem is, and this applies to all agencies, that "editorial" has wrongly become a catch all for non-released.

I think there should be three categories:

Fully-released/commercial
Editorial (i.e., truly newsworthy)
Non-released (clips that are NOT newsworthy but contain unreleased people or properties)


« Reply #33 on: March 07, 2019, 10:21 »

Both.  I have roughly 2500 editorial stock images up on other agencies right now, and roughly 550 editorial videos.

And I am early on a 3 month trip covering 7 countries that will produce hundreds more in each category...

Well said, and three types would help buyers, before they search. I have quite a bit of Editorial Only, but shot with permission.

If they are worried about low quality content flodding the site, they could do it in stages.

Only 10 videos/photos a week or per month allowed.

Upload limits force people to make decisions about what they really feel is important.

And then only lift the limits gradually in response to sale success.

And if there is someone they like, they can always change their individual limits.

Both videos and images. Both news and just unreleased. About 20%-30% of my portfolio.

My original question was about the video, obviously. I have a lot of material that is rejected because I do not have the intellectual property of a building or a guy that appears in the background, and very good videos are discarded that could perfectly be editorials. Greetings.

Hi Dennis,

Video mostly but also photos.
Come on Adobestock, I think its time to dive into the Editorial world as well.
It sells.

With or without Editorial...I still love Everything Adobe.

Pond 5 says they will begin selling clips through Adobe.  Will this include editorial?  If so, what will the price point be?

Editorial video would be good from my perspective - its a huge part of sales on P5 and SS.
