I saw this asked on FB.  The free images will be expiring soon.  Will there be more rounds of additions and payments?

I should be able to provide an update on this soon. Thanks for the question.

My earnings definitely increased after free collection, not decreased as some predicted.

... and over this past year you've mistreated your contributors like never before..

yet you ask them to submit their work for free?
How ? Where is that thing called humanity you used to have?

I'm sorry you feel that way @Chillswell. To clarify, we are not asking you to give us your content for free. Adobe Stock pays 5 credits per approved image for the right to include the image in the Free collection for a year on a non-exclusive basis. You are not obligated to participate. If it's not for you, no action is required. Simply do not nominate your eligible photos.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Thanks for the announcement Mat - good to know what's coming up and I think it's good that you have a choice whether to attend or not.

I've felt no mistreatment from them over the last year. Quite the opposite. The Free Collection helped move my other work. Been a great year!

hello everyone,
Mat is a friend who works devotedly in adobe stock, trying to solve the questions I ask and the problems I encounter.
thank you again to him.

I also did not see any disrespect from him.

And again, yes, my sales increased.


@MatHayward
There are no changes on the Adobestock page. Will it open in a certain time zone?

Well, you've clearly singled me out here haven't you?
have you read the forums? its not just me who feels this way.

We got quite a few big players here protesting the change in Adobe over the past year,
But, it wouldn't be polite of me to name them, you know who they are.

Anyways, plenty of others here to tell you how amazing you and adobe are,
while they sell their 4k footage for $1.50 instead of $50 or $70 .
The reviews on glassdoor regarding adobe don't lie though,
So good luck to you and your "army" of flatterers here.

Adobe Stock is the only agency (by far) that has renewed my hope for selling photos, based on my experience for at least the past month.

Starting tomorrow, June 7 some of you will have the opportunity to re-nominate photos that are currently in the Free collection, or to nominate new photos for consideration. The window to nominate your photos will be open until June 22.
Hi Mat, thanks for the heads up.

What defines "some of you"?

Because when I look in the contributor portal I see no changes so I will not have the opportunity then, I guess.

Youre singled out because he was directly responding to your comment which was directed towards his post.  You know that though.

Hello Mat,

I appreciate your efforts and I think you're a nice person.
But I think Chillswell in his message was rather referring to the new commission rate for videos.
Yes we are not forced to submit our work into the free collection, but we are forced, and have no other choice than to accept that our videos are now sold with a price commission divided by 10...
Unless Adobe Stock allows us to opt out from this plan (which would not be very complex to set up), it is nothing but pure robbery.

Regards

Benoit

Same question :D On my contributor portal I did not see anything for free collection opportunity :( Do we get opportunity or this year is for "special" contributor only?

Or maybe that's in spite of the free collection?  ;D

My sales are up this year, I was happy with the images that I submitted, that were not best selling, and made me extra money. I can only see how the photo section has improved, year after year.

As for the other... I don't do video, or at least nothing that I expect any income. Too expensive to create and the whole market, as far as Microstock goes, has dropped. This is the same as things were when photos were over produced, and Vectors made better returns. Then the illustrations and vectors, production surpassed the needs of the market.

Now the same has happened to video content. Market pressure, supply and demand, it's not something that some agency can defy or ignore, just because I want better pay. My needs and desires are not the responsibility of the agencies, or how they run their business.

Hi All,

My post yesterday was a heads up that the nomination process would be live today...which it now is. I started a new thread so people just joining, won't need to scroll through 14 pages. Please let me know in that thread if you have any questions.

Thanks!

Mat

Yes, it popped up just now. Where I live, the 7th of June started many hours ago :)

All the ones that are currently free don't have a slider.  Just a box that says "free".  Doesn't seem like a choice for those.  Or are those automatically not going to be re-admitted at all?

Try refreshing the page or using a different browser Sean. That was the case immediately after this launched today, but was corrected almost immediately. If you're still seeing that, it's likely a browser issue.

Please reach out directly if the problem persists.

Thank you,

Mat Hayward
