Yep, last month was about half of my peak, which was last November.
I sure hope you're doing well on Stocksy!

Oddly enough, I get a nice chunk of change from our partnership with Adobe.  I'm not hating on AS by any means.  I just wish every site would show some growth.

Are any sites showing growth ?!?

Something odd happened on the week of June 17th to me on here.

Prior to that it was growing every month and has done consistently. 
Suddenly on that June 17th week income dropped by 40% or so on the rolling average and has been fairly stable at that now low level every week since.
My download *numbers* have stayed pretty constant but the earnings have dropped significantly and instantly since that date.

(and yes, i am still uploading).

Oddly SS has been growing the last month or 2 which surprised me somewhat.

How many contributors doubled its portfolio and doubled the income?

Well, the world doesn't work like that, unless you are the only person in the world.

If you double your portfolio but the total portfolio of everyone quadrupled, you have actually cut your relative portfolio in half.

If the number of customers doubled in the same time you might (statistically) expect around the same earnings.

Exactly, you're right. What i waned to say is that this "summer" have drop in sales not because of the summer period(we compare this summer to the past a few years summers), but because of other factors like portfolio growth in all agencies as a whole. I'm sure AS doing well.

+1 AS/FT have been been a consistent and good earner for me... it's because of that consistency when things go bad like they have for the last 1-2 months, it makes it all the more obvious. They are/were my preferred agency and I do hope they turn things around. Yesterday, AS was one third of SS which was a rarity but is happening all to frequently now.

What I would say is that I do appreciate the likes of Dennis and Mat coming here and answering questions... it's a lot more than most/all agencies would do

Definitely something happened in June... sales are at level of my beginnings with stock... but, not seeing growth on SS... something happened there in April, with totally slow periods before and during summer... in both cases, much different then regular summer slowdowns...

Yep.  We call that "summer."

Happens every year. People take vacations. Companies decide what to for the coming Winter season.  Nothing unusual.

This is not a paycheck that remains the same whether you work or not, or whether the stuff you sell is wanted or not. It has seasonal variations, and the pipeline must be constantly fed to keep the material fresh.

Learn to live with it... or leave the hobby/business (getting harder and harder to really call it a business...)

Are you new in this business?

I'm new but AS is my lowest earner far from DS or BS after 11 months.

Yep down, and they have been extremely slow (server wise) for the last couple days for me as well.

I may sound stupid, but how do we submit editorial to AS ?


We do not currently accept editorial footage on Adobe Stock, but I certainly hope that we will in the future.  I will certainly make a post here when we do!

Thanks,
Dennis

I'm regularly seeing Server 500 errors on the contributor side of things and times where it just hangs for ages. Long spells of absolutely nothing at AS in terms of sales.

I also reported a problem whereby the $ amount under "Activity" was not matching the $ amount under "Earnings" the other day... something just feels wrong there at the moment. It's almost as if they've been hiring ex-SS software engineers  ;D ;D

This, and nothing more.  Adobe Stock is growing and doing well.  There will be seasonality and depending on what your content focuses on, you will have good and bad months.  We're working all of the time to improve sales and the experience for all contributors.  If I could even out the seasonality, I would.... ;-)

These are really great to hear!  ;D

When did Adobe Stock start accepting editorial material?

I mean I don't have a lot of material in Adobe because I shoot mostly editorials.


Aaaan, it seems that Adobe is now accepting editorials :) (from today)

However, it is only images and at this point somewhat limited.  We do not accept editorial footage yet (which is what I'm primarily focused on!) ;-)
