Seems like they've found a loophole, they haven't done any of these:

Flipping the image
Providing various cropped versions
Providing the same image with different exposures
Providing images with spot color effects or in black and white
Changing the background color
Applying image filters

Maybe Adobe should add a line about different text on similar images... unless this is allowed.

Offtopic, this was the first article on stock (from an agency) that does not refer to a source on images shown, either credits to a creator. At least the first I noticed :)
Ok, if AS do not want to sell it,  let's buy this image from SS then...

Same for me, no portfolio just display "search photos by Egor" or "Search photos by photon_photo", nothing shows.

OMG I see what you mean with those two portfolios. I cant believe they let this similar crapola through the queue. Wow, how times have changed in the microstock world.

wow, I am quite curious how many sales that can generate - or how many above just a few variations would sell.  If the keywords are actually different then they might not appear to spam actual search results. It is surprising that this is allowed though.

I picked one totally at random, and there would seem to be hundreds of in-uses out there (just looked at the thums, couldn't see if they were the same or similars with different text.
Of course, some of them may be nicked, but still ...
Interesting: back in the day iS for one said not to put text on images as the customers could easily do their own. Given how few buyers of my images ever crop or resize them, I was never convinced.
