Hopefully Matt can chime in on this...

Was just sharing some of my images from my PicFair portfolio to Twitter ( @thpstockphotos if you're interested ) , and it was a breeze.

Figured I'd go do the same from my Adobe Stock portfolio - except there is no sharing option on the image detail pages, unless I'm missing something?

I thought I'd take a look at Shutterstock, and sure enough they have the option to share from the image detail page. However, it's really lacking - it only adds the URL in by default. No description, no hashtags, not even a proper Twitter card to display a nice, full size image.

Just got me wondering why Adobe Stock doesn't have this kind of feature? Surely it'd be a pretty easy win? If it's built out properly (like the PicFair one, although even that could be improved a little) I'm sure contributors would be sharing their images a lot more (at least, I know I would).

Maybe buyers don't waste their time on twitter or instagram and go straight where they can find and  buy the pics/clips they want...there are so many agencies for this,why wasting time on socials...

It's a good suggestion and would be a nice feature. The development team is working on a lot with the portal to make it a better experience. I'll make sure to share this feedback with the team.

Thanks,

Mat

Thanks Matt, look forward to seeing all the updates you have planned for this year. (sorry for my super delayed response, was away for a bit).
