If I have ,say, 200 images on the one subject. Is it acceptable to upload them all at once or is it best practice to upload them bit by bit to Adobestock?

Just wondering what is best or if there is no difference.

Thanks

I have my doubts that it is a good practice to upload 200 images of the same subject at all, regardless of whether you upload them at the same time or not.

Depends on how wide/narrow is the acceptance of the word "subject" here. The real question is: how similar are the images? If you have 200 images with, say, the theme of healthcare, or financial sector, you should be ok with submitting them all at once, provided that they are not similar. (I can easily think of 200 different images depicting each of these topics.) On the other hand, if you have 200 images of a very specific subject, chances are they are too similar, and you are better of not sending all of them, not even in multiple batches.
Assuming you have images that are different enough, I would still send them in multiple batches spread over multiple days. Adobe Stock clearly state they give a boost in sales to its active contributors, meaning that if you upload 10 images a day for 20 days, you will get a boost over a contributor who uploads 200 images in one go and then stops uploading for the next 19 days.

The boost reward doesn't make any sense.
Never have seen a difference in my sales.

There are so many professional high end photo sets, which contain many hundreds of similar photos. For example electro mobility with shots showing people charging cars or real live situations with family members.

You wouldn't upload them by splitting in 10 images for a single batch. You just lose productivity because Adobe's upload system is extremely user friendly for huge batches of similar images.

Since review goes up to over a month you still accumulate images pending in review.

Just upload them at once.

Thanks everyone. The images are all on the one subject but very different within that (if that makes sense!)

It would be nice to get a definitive answer from Mat on this one but really appreciate the comments

I think you have a better chance of getting a fast response from the Adobe team if you post your question on Discord. They are very active there.

Really, they say that? Where? What makes active? One a week, ten a week, ten a month...

Yes, it's acceptable if each image is unique and of high quality.

Basically every chance they have when interacting with us, contributors, on forums or Discords. As to the second question, I always thought it's not about the numbers, but the action itself - as long as you keep submitting, you are considered an "active" contributor, no matter how many files. But since we don't know how their algorithms work, your guess is as good as mine.

and remember they want high quality images. So they can give them away free as part of an incentive package.

A bit off topic. Where I can find their discord forum for Adobe Contributors?

Just read at the Discord channel. They really encourage users to make small batches but without real reliable arguments. They say it would make more sense since you would then test, if the content pass through the review and is in demand and then upload more.

But probably they just want avoid spammers.

My 200 isolated tomato photos are each unique and original and with great sales potential.

So my one upload a week, makes me active and I get ranked better than someone sitting on their easy chair on a beach, sipping a Pina Colada and eating Bon Bons? Well dang me, I'm doing something right for a change.

Oh not my game plan, I upload one a week, so I'm "active".   ;)
