I am having the best year so far in Adobe
So happy to see any agency working so well. It not only surpassed SS far ahead but also crossed the combined earning from all the agencies.

Adobe deserves a huge applause.

That is awesome news @Artist! I'm very pleased to start my day reading this message. I'll be sure to share this with the team today.

Happy Holidays!

I cant say theyve beaten SS, but sales are consistent and while many are at the $.38 minimum, there are a lot for a dollar or three.  Thanks!

Adobe has been my gem for the last few years as well! I load all my new content there first and decide on the others later on...

I'm having the best month ever in Adobe so far but not so good that I could afford to buy even a used Hasselblad camera. Maybe one day my earnings will be at that level. :D

Great to hear!, now if only Adobe would open up to taking editorial video and photos directly from contributors like Pond5 and SSTK do I wonder if it would be profitable for both contributors and Adobe.

While Adobe is doing really great for me lately also, I'm missing those big sales that you get at SS, thats why SS is still ahead for me. For example I got 120$ video sale this month, 50$ photo sale previous month, 34$ video sale in October, I can't remember when was the last time I got video or EL sale at Adobe....

Yes, I agree as well. Adobe is on an upward trajectory!

These past two weeks have been great on Adobe with not only more video sales than the other sites (and that's for the whole month) but higher commissions on each and every sale.

This has been a very good year for me at Adobe Stock - it has already beaten all the other years except 2018 and the year's not yet done. As others have noted, it is missing those very nice high-value SOD sales from Shutterstock, but the market is changing as the flood of free and cheap media continues.

I was very concerned about the all-you-can eat Pro subscriptions announced in April, but so far, nothing below 38 cents has shown up. Yea! I remain concerned that Adobe won't commit to any minimum royalty beyond subscriptions (i.e. Pro Edition and Creative Cloud Express) but let's hope that's circumspect lawyers, not an evil genius in its lair plotting our doom :)

I'm not so active due the personal reasons, hopefully next year will be better. In spite of that, good work Adobe and big thank you Mat for being here for us.

Thanks Mat and team you guys are very helpful and responsive all the time.
After hearing so much negative, Adobe gave us real hope.

This year was amazing with Adobe, hope that next year becomes more flourishing. Fingers crossed.

In 5 years Shutterstock has halved earnings for me and Adobe increased 3 fold. Says everything

Compared to others, my earnings are not that much and I have not been busy with stock for long.
I only started offering photos to Adobe after Shutterstock's ten cents. That's why there are far fewer photos there. But also in relation to that number I earn less on Adobe. A few more photos and then I have sold 100 photos and I can also offer other photos (some Editorias) on Adobe. Hopefully then the earnings will be more comparable to Shutterstock. I do have the idea that Adobestock is the stock photo provider with the most future in it.

60% increase for me over last year. That'll do, pig. That'll do. Still about 25% less than my SS earnings, but that could all change next year if it keeps going the same way it has been.

Yes, I have seen similar trends. Adobe is not far off from being the dollar leader.....and that's with Adobe yet to accept Editorial still content with people and no editorial video content!

Adobe is doing well for me. Better than Shutterstock or istock.

December is not over yet, but the picture is already clear.
For me, Adobe is the only agency where my numbers have actually improved a little bit over 2020 and 2019 - for all other agencies, they've gotten worse - worst of all, shutterstock.
 
Right now at AS it's up $544 and up 481 downloads. At the end of the month, I'll know the exact total. But it won't add that much more, because the end of the year is always a disaster for me.

Also compared to 2019 it's 423 downloads and $432 more. Compared to 2018 and 2017, the differences are dwindling. In that respect, Adobe is actually very consistent for me - and that in difficult times and despite the fact that I uploaded very little.

I agree: Well done, Adobe!

Please dont forget, that Adobe is making lots of money by selling you their software....

I am so delighted when I get an email from Adobe and see that they at least appreciate the value of our images. Every time I open the SS app and see 10 cents I get worked up and angry. I don't want to waste money on buying backgrounds, props or food for food photography. It's just a waste of money. Paying more in than I am getting paid. I am always excited to open an email from Adobe. It's like a Christmas present every time. Thank you Adobe.

No they aren't.  :)

I earned a free photo subscription last two years and will again this year.

Who else gives us anything at all? Our bonus from SS, for a years work, is being reset to level one.
