Not sure about you guys, but my Adobe sales dropped dramatically in the past few weeks. Anyone else experience this?  Had been pretty consistent up till a few weeks ago.

Past 2 weeks weren't good.  August is usually slow.  So, I hope it'll get better in September.

No problems with me. There has been a noticeable increase in sales over the last few weeks/months.

Sales have increased for me as well in the past couple of weeks.

It was slow last week, and slow the beginning of this week. Then yesterday early afternoon it picked up and even had a $28 video sale which was good to see, haven't had one at that price in a while.

OK made me look. No nothing unusual, except the week of June 27th was much higher than the norm. 12 week trend looks pretty level.

Actually after last weekend, I'm seeing higher than usual credits. I mean instead of the very usual, 33, 66 and 99 I'm getting some $1.20 and $1.21 and I have no understanding why?

And just like that, I am already into my BME on Adobe Start. Adobe Start, because it's starting to kick some butt this month.

A good month for me at AS.  Now 211 sales at just under a buck a pop, and there's still plenty of month left.

The average revenues at AS are also on the way down for me.
I have less and less individual sales with 3.30 and subscription/custom sales now seems completely arbitrary to me.

actual # of high sales is stochastic, ie, cant be reliably predicted

my RPD is .5 to .6 for SS rather than .1 - .2 if all sales were subs

AS has .6 - .8, again higher than a purely sub basis

and these numbers have been steady over the last few years

also a month w lower $ custom sales can be the equivalent of one with just 1 high priced sale.  when the price of custom sales can vary from $2 to $100+ it's hard to see any pattern

I've had the best month ever on AS.  Despite having a very small portfolio (around 300 images/clips), I managed to sell around $150 in this week alone, so I'm a happy bunny.

I am very sure that AS changed the algorithm on August 1. Since that day my downloads have decreased abruptly. So much so that it has become the worst month at AS since December 2010. In August I had well over 100 downloads less than the average of January to July.

I am very sure that AS changed the algorithm on August 1.

If they did that, then it was (finally!) in my favor. My download numbers have increased. I had more than double as many sales in August 22 than in August 21. Maybe I will finally get to see the glourious Adobe takeover compared to Shutterstock that everyone keeps talking about.

The same thing happens to me !

Not sure that you can draw many conclusions from my experience - small portfolio (2,251 right now), no video, but year to date Adobe Stock is up almost 12% over 2021 (in revenue) and 2021 was up 20% over 2020.

There's some possibility that no longer being at Shutterstock (after June 2020) caused some increase (it certainly wasn't heading for Dreamstime!).

August was up 10.5% over August 2021 (at Adobe Stock)

Compared to mine your portfolio isnt small, Jo Ann. Thank you for your insights anyways!

Sadly you can't select stats for more than 13 months for some reason. With a quick look Aug 21 was double Aug 22, but maybe august 21 had some images selected for the free section. The number of dl was pretty similar with a few more in 22.

In general my sales at AS have been pretty sad the last few months with a few truly pathetic weeks.

Occasional sale on Adobe Stock with a good earning for an aerial hyperlapse...

Images vs video.

Adobe Stock is performing really well again this month, waaay better than the others (namely SS and P5).

I just realised I passed the 100k DL marker this month and $100k last month... Really should pay more attention :D

As always... thanks Adobe for making it possible!

For me, this is the time of year that the volume really starts to increase until December... then 3-4 weeks of being a little quieter before it all licks off again.
