More and more i am convinced that copyright thieves is the new form of art.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D



I can't shut my mouth, sorry.

True, they could have invested millions in aggressive advertising to attract stock customers who are not using the software. Also, they could have asked for exclusivity, and we would have entered.

Now, we know that your decision is the right one, for your parent (Matrix) company.

SS will lose customers who have the software, I don't know where else they will continue to pull the string.
The other agencies will start paying pennies for bulk lots.
We entered a curvy road, downhill and without brakes.
Bad time to quit smoking.

It can always get worse.

If only I were Joe Biden's son Hunter. I would not need to work in photos. I would get millions from China and the Ukraine for doing nothing and having no knowledge/expertise of anything. Just my last name Biden.... But I am not a Biden and I need future image creation and fair pay.....

Please, all stock agencies, stop doing stupid experiments.

With 70,000 free premium photos, any topic is covered.
 
Actually this isn't true, I've had a look and a few of my niche areas aren't covered so that's a relief.

Come on. Use simple 80/20 thinking.  Many sellable themes are covered in the free section.  Great for you that your niche is not impacted, but for the lion's share of contributors their subject matter is covered for FREE.

ODDS AGAINST YOU? NEED HELP?

I'm going to call the Equalizer

For me I will use my personal "equalizer".
Both parts can play the game so why should i continue to use their software when they are giving our artist work for free to clients?

Don't get me wrong it's only business so Let's play the free game:

For Premiere  i will use Da vinci  resolve  (free/better and with big community support)
For Photoshop i will use GIMP (free big comunnity support)
For lightroom  i will use Darktable (Free, recent 1 year community but fascinating choice)
For after effects  i will use FXhome HitFilm and Blender (HUGE community support)

Give it a try and you will save 61,49/month. ;)

Bad news. I deleted all video clips at SS and if needed I'll do it again here. Right now I have more than 3000 clips at AD and maybe I should wait a little bit, but eventually if things get worse all clips will be deleted. When P5 does the same I'm out of micro stock.

You nailed it! ;) For video editing I all ready use Davinci. Don't like those crashing reports from Adobe.

Not good for the purchasers of those so called "download it for free images" either. Once you think you can download a few "free" images, the catch is that, there is a big cancellation fee if you no longer want to download other images.

So in other words is a lose, lose and lose situation for contributors and image purchasers.  Always a catch.  ::)

A designer friend of mine recommended Affinity to my wife who was tired of being held ransom by "The Cloud" and has never looked back. She uses Affinity for both photos and illustration and loves it.

I think you're confusing Adobe Stock's new "Free" section containing 77k images (initially) with the teaser for paid subscriptions (where you get 10 free images when you sign up). The free section doesn't require a sign up and there are no fees at all.

Fortunately, you did not carry that last name, synonymous with the transition to the new USA.
Please, I'm very busy, but if you want to talk politics, maybe you should start a new thread. How you can observe, we are not amused. And less with the number of families that are suffering in the world, `so that you come with cheap propaganda, at the wrong time and out of place.

We can start a coalition against AS. It's honestly good software. The open source ones are awesome too. Very good computer programs.

Adobe created the flash, the PDF, .... I can't go against them. I think it is a matter of business.

I think the problem is ours for not being able to unite, with some lawyers who lift every false return or agency accounting error off the ground. That it puts fines to commit to each image shared in networks illegally.


An association with a voice on the planet, we bring color to the information and we are not able to unite, but really, together without sex or kisses, just for the profession and elevate it to a worthy profession. Backed by international associations of Internet users.

United as a real collective. Simple. The fault is ours. AS is a company, and it commands the profit. At the very least, they are not twisted on us. They try.

A strike is the solution, but it is impossible, I know.

Here I asked for help to know how many images were necessary to meet the needs of potential clients in a new agency.
The few users who said anything spoke of millions of images.
It may be that for free, millions of files are needed to cover real needs. And we must take it as a campaign to attract new clients.
It may be that it will be beneficial for all, if the client approaches AS and perhaps, the number of users will grow.

Flash was developed by Macromedia,  and Adobe bought that company. I used a lot Flash, Fireworks and Dreamweaver when i worked as webmaster in the beginning of 2000 year.

Lets hope that most of the 'free' results are like the 'elephant' search in photos only....

Most of those are Wirestock, and in addition to being spammed with totally irrelevant keywords, they're the weak link in the "Free" collection. That's good news for anyone with content in those categories - as in it's not much in the way of competition for other contributors with decent images.

Hi Everyone,

Moments ago we launched a free collection on Adobe Stock. We'll be sending an email to contributors later today with this announcement but I wanted to give you a heads up in advance.

I expect you will have some (many?) questions and I'm happy to answer any that I can. We have put together a Learn & Support page with details and an anticipated list of FAQ for you here:

https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/free-collection-contributor-information.html

You can view the collection here: https://stock.adobe.com/free

Let me know your questions, I'll be around all day.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Therefore, to provide a quality service, they need more money on the table.
That number of files does not cover the needs of the planet. They will improve, AS reads us. But really, that comment from @ ShadySue is important.

The client also mistrusts the free. In addition, it does not give prestige to the free images blog, this company decision is likely to have gaps.

Maybe it will benefit the collaborators and AS?

Indeed, to meet the needs of microstock, it takes millions of images to be competitive.
Perhaps, users will start in the world of legal files and get hooked on downloading and the world of images legally. Maybe new users will come to AS?
Can it be good for everyone?

Adobe also bought Freehand (Macromedia and previously Aldus), probably the best vector software that ever existed... just to shut it down and get more market share from its complicated, buggy and unstable Illustrator...

It is already saturated market, the same by media proposals and by clients, existing and potential. Not a big field is left for the "niches". Only big financial resources will allow to analyse the requests and proposals on the market and react very, very quickly. I think it is naive to trust that AS or somebody else with comparable resources will resist to not flood the market with free content just to shut down the competitors. It is clear that it will request less efforts if it is done by category - the same like supermarkets do. The biggest will do agreements, the smaller ones will disappear. All automated, AI to act.
