I should also mention that SS and Alamy read the keywords fine.  Also, the Title is also fine. 
You'd think AS would be well versed in keyword intake from an Adobe product.

I've uploaded a number of files to Adobe Stock in the last few weeks, all edited and keyworded in Photoshop 23.1.1. I've had no trouble with my keywords being read by the upload process. I just checked the last dozen or so approved images and all the keywords shown are correct - the ones I entered.

You'll need to see what else might be wrong, but it's not a general problem with keywords in the latest Photoshop. I should note I keyword in English and possibly there is a problem with accented characters or something else related to non-English words?

Thanks Jo Ann.  No I don't have any special characters.  And some images make it through OK, while others fail even after trying to upload again.  Strange.

FYI for anyone redeeming a code who has some time left on their existing plan. It does end up tacking 12 months on to the existing expiration date, but for a few nerve-wracking screens it looks as if it didn't work.

I checked my current expiration date (in May 2022) and then went to redeem my code for another 12 months. The redemption was successful but said my service would end on February 2, 2023. I opened up a new tab and went to my Adobe account page and it still showed May 2022. I only have one Adobe account, so there's no possibility to mistakenly redeem in the wrong account.

A few refreshes later (about 2-3 minutes I think) and the Adobe account page updated to show May 2023 as expected.

After all the warnings about making sure you do it correctly because you can't change anything, it would be great if the confirmation page when you redeem could show you - even if it asks you to wait while it updates your account - that you've completed the task as expected.

I had the same experience when I redeemed mine and was relieved when it refreshed since mine was due to end in April.

I feel a bit of a luddite asking this, but I've been very comfortable using Photoshop CC2015 for so many years, I wonder if I need to update.  Can I leave the CC 2015 on my desktop and try the cloud version of Photoshop at the same time?
Thanks

I have been able to get through to Adobe when I've had issues, so I'd try to reach them by phone and ask. It's definitely worth upgrading IMHO.

FWIW, from my experience, when you update I think it will removes earlier versions unless you tell it not to but it's tricky - so back it up beforehand if you are uncertain. In had PSv6 but in looking at my Applications folder, it isn't there anymore and I'm not sure if that is by choice or not but I have folders labeled Photoshop 2019, 2020, the only things in them are presets, however, in addition to LR CC & LR Classic CC, I still have LR v5, so if you do it correctly you shouldn't lose the older version of PS & LR - I also think when you go to your Adobe Account, you can see the older versions that you bought there BUT I don't think they are supported anymore, so you might lose the updates if you rely on that. Best to backup and/or call Adobe Support for help.

In terms of whether it's worth upgrading: Honestly, I'd happily pay for CC if I didn't get it for free the past few years, even the earlier versions are so much better than PS6/LR5 - you can do things in LR Classic with adjustment brushes that you couldn't even do in PS RAW before - I only go into PS when I need more complicated cloning and other things that require layers. It makes your workflow much faster. And the sky replacement and neural filters and better masking etc. in the newer PS versions are really excellent. It's all pretty intuitive if you've been a longtime PS/LR user and Adobe has a ton of tutorials on their site.


Lots of creative options - the style neural filters are fun - though I'm mostly using them for fine art - but LR Classic speeds up all kinds of processing from stock to fine art.

 Good luck!

Me a bit of a dummy...had 2 years of free (PS&LR) subscriptions and would have qualified again last year had I not forgotten to upload some files! Ah well....just have to pay this time but I am inspired to upload again (just not to SS)!

I qualify for Creative Cloud All Apps (already activated), but why am I still being billed for Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (24EUR + 12EUR)? Does anyone have this problem?  :(

Happened to me, I just contacted their Customer support and they refunded the full amount, so don't worry they'll help you.

Qualified for, is not the same as having canceled previous subscriptions and redeemed the new code. If you have active Creative Cloud subscriptions that are not exactly the same as the bonus subscription you earned, then your existing active subscriptions will run in tandem with the new one. You need to cancel the existing subscriptions and activate the All Apps code if what you are already running is not the All Apps subscriptions.

Here is some additional information you may find useful: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/how-to-redeem-creative-cloud-bonus-code.html

...I haven't received a code, even though I've sold over 10,000 licenses in the past year...

Did you upload files last year? In addition to the sales rule, there's an "active contributor" rule:

https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/royalty-details.html

"An active contributor is an Adobe Stock contributor with at least two (2) submitted and approved qualifying assets in 2021."

I wondered why I haven't received a code and have found that I didn't upload at all last year! I didn't realise, I would have made sure to upload  :'( :'(
I will start uploading for this year!!

Is it safe to assume there won't be a 2022 equivalent as its already near November and no announcement?

I have no news to share at this time. I would not make any assumptions in either direction. You have my promise that as soon as I can provide an update, I will.

Thank you,

Thanks for the response - even a "dont know" reply is a useful honest opinion so appreciated.

Ive got at least 8 months left on mine but it'd be useful to know at some point to decide if i need to migrate software to alternatives or not (or at least evaluate alternatives).
