1 good day and 4 slow days somehow kept me at good ranking this week.

My advice to newbies is to listen to people who are doing well and at least much better than you. 
Also look at contributors on Top Seller list and figure out why they are doing well.
https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/best/contributors

Just copying their bestsellers may not bring you $$ because everybody may be doing the same and the market is saturated with similar images already.  It can be hit or miss and big disappointment in my own experience.  So, find your niche also and come up with your original idea.  Don't listen to those who never post their ranking here but keep talking crap here.  They may be doing only 1/10 as good as you are.  There's no point in taking any advice from them.

Wow very impressed. How many files you have?

About 2 million photos.
I produce about 1,000 AI photos everyday.
I automate the production with prompt producing AI.  So, I just upload and tag.  I sleep like 2hrs/day.

How many AI images can you send to Adobe per day for review?And what is your acceptance rate?

You know I was just kidding with those numbers, right?  I've already gave my port size number a few times on previous posts.

yes of course,that's why I asked! :D

Do you have an approval rate on reviewed content?mine is about 85%,of content accepted out of the total reviewed,but I dedicate time to every single piece of AI content.

ok when I have time I will try to read everything... I never have time for anything,I'm always making content,my girlfriend is pissed off like a beast! :D

I don't think there's a limit for upload.  I usually upload average of 50-200 AI images at a time per day when I upload.  I don't upload everyday.  Overall AI image approval rate for this year probably is 70% or so.  I only use photo editing software for AI images if I need to remove brand logo.  So, 99% of the time, I just upscale, convert to jpeg and upload.

in fact there is no limit,and this unfortunately slows down the review process a lot,as far as I know,it's not possible for reviewers to know who sent what,so it's not possible to quantify how much you're sending for reviewers.

so only upscale then convert to jpeg index and send?and don't you think that the content you send will be easily surpassed over time by content on which someone has spent more time?

in any case this is also a strategy,you go more on quantity for AI content,ok,I believe that it is not the best strategy over time,I believe that 100 contents in which you have lost at least a week are better than 1000 contents in a week.

if you want advice from someone who certainly knows less than you,because I'm sure you have more experience than me,I would advise you at this point to slow down,and focus more on quality,because you already have thousands of contents for sale,if you continue in the same way you just continue to do what you have already done! :)

Everyone on Adobe has an upload limit (a limit on the numbers of items in review at any one time). Newcomers are limited to 50 and this increases as they get acceptances and downloads. The maximum I have heard of is 3000. Adobe does not disclose how the upload limit is calculated.

we were referring to a specific limit for AI content.
I knew about the limit of 50 for new ones but I didn't know there was a limit of up to 3000.

I have never reached any limit  :) at least not when it comes to uploads!  :D

In general, I don't edit stock materials much.  If exposure and color is good, just submit.  We are providing base materials for users to edit on their own.  So, for AI photos, mostly exposure and color is perfect already.  I just check for extra/missing fingers, brand logos and submit.  Reason for rejection probably are due to too many similar photo Adobe has already.  So, I'd rather quickly increase my portfolio than slow down.  My photo revenue is up 60-70% now compared to 6 months ago after adding 60-70% more photos mostly AI generated.  So, my strategy is working.  I pay $120/month for Midjourney.  So, I better generate images fast and upload en masse while I pay that much to Midjourney.

Btw, how many images do you have in your portfolio?

Actually, what's interesting about your stats is that you increased your port by X% and your revenue went up roughly an equivalent X%. It seems that you weren't particularly impacted in a negative way by all the AI competition. This is more or less consistent with what I have seen. I have added very little AI content so far, but haven't seen much of a negative impact revenue-wise by the onslaught of all the AI submissions. Maybe the answer is that the percentage of AI content in Adobe is still a small number.

Good point.  Possibly the reason may be buyers abandoned Shutterstock subscription and bought Adobe Stock subscription.  Shutterstock's subscription has been going down according to their financial report.

I prefer not to say the precise number but more than 7000

I'm sure your strategy pays off in the short term,we need to see if it pays off in the long term.

for the moment we are still at the beginning,then we will have to see when the competition increases.

However,you may be right,maybe I waste too much time,but I like to put content on sale that I would buy myself.

I also tried a month as a pro plan with Midjourney,because given the speed with which many of you upload,I thought that the outputs of Midjourney were more correct but this is not the case,90% of the contents have generative errors,until now all AI image generators have errors,and many things to improve.

Honestly, there isn't much more to edit AI generated photos other than erasing brand logos in very rare occasions.  I don't waste time tweaking extra/missing fingers or disfigured faces.  I just don't submit those bad ones and generate till I get good ones.  Time is money.  I just try to maximize my output per hour/day.  And based on the number you gave me, my portfolio is making 2x more $$ per photo.  So, no offense, but I know what I'm doing and it's working.  If your photo isn't selling short term, why can you expect them to do well in long term?  It just doesn't make sense unless you are producing seasonal materials way in advance.

And you're right about generating AI images on Midjourney.  Many of the generated images aren't usable.  It takes time to generate images that you want.  You need to work on the prompts and hope AI will give you usable images without extra/missing fingers and limbs.  That's where my time is spent regarding AI image creation.

Since you once wrote that your real photos sell better, how high is approx. the share of your weekly sold AI images?
>30%?

I currently enhance my port, it's really pain in the ass, even if one have already generated images. Hope it pays off, even if I don't believe it.

Well, that actually bothers me and thats the reason why I dont want to be featured again on a bestseller list. First time was ok, but after second,  third time, I got 50+ ports copying my images!!! It really sucks, since coming up with original ideas is not that simple and then hundreds of similar images with exactly same description etc now my profitable niche that I found is over saturated with copycats. I understand ports from 3rd world countries copying, they are desperate and dont give a flying #$& about copyrights , but in well educated countries you do know about copyrights and yet still openly advertise to copy bestsellers? Why???

I don't know.  Probably 30-35%.  40% of my port is AI.  So, less than the percentage of portfolio.

It's just a common sense to try to create what's selling.  But I was trying to explain a pitfall of creating very similar images.  You got to differentiate from what's already out there in the same concept/genre.  That's my approach.  There's no copyright in concept for photo/video/images.  So, you can't own that.  Nobody owns "business theme", "Christmas theme" etc.

Also, many images on my portfolio top page are images with only 1 recent sale.  And if these don't get additional sales, they'll get pushed back to further down pages.  So, it's not that simple to guess what's really selling on somebody's portfolio.

Adobe is really protecting our bestsellers by mostly showing either new content or stuff with its first sale on the first page.

Very helpful.

Many of my well selling files are very mundane and unassuming. And now adding a lot of illustrations and soon video again, the mix will make it harder to copy specific files.

And for seasonal content I am anyway competing with millions of files using similar decoration objects, so cant do much about that.

but absolutely,like I said maybe you're right and I'm wrong! :)

but you see,the point is that AI content that is not unique is easy to copy with a prompt,anyone can do it,but if instead you waste time and try to create something unique,adding or removing elements and improving the content,a that point is not easy to replicate,and takes time.

but maybe my approach is wrong and in the end you are right,for the moment you are certainly earning more than me so you are better off doing as you do.

I can't do it,I can't put content on sale with all these errors,yesterday for example I was working on an AI content and I said to myself,ok I can do this quickly,then instead 2 hours later I was still there working on the content,then when in the end I saw the result I was satisfied,and I'm sure if someone wants to try to copy it with just a prompt it's impossible.

but as I said,perhaps all this is of no use and perhaps you are right to do as you do,we'll see with time,in the meantime I will continue to work on AI content as I always do,I will try to speed up a bit if I can. :)

...  So, it's not that simple to guess what's really selling on somebody's portfolio.

You can filter portfolios if you know the way to edit the URL - in other words Adobe doesn't provide the UI but the features are there. So your portfolio in download order:

The genAI images in your portfolio in download order:

You don't do AI yet?  I'm surprised.
My approach is to create AI versions of my own bestsellers first.

I think I'll start shooting/generating house renovation images too.  That's where the money is!!

OK start this week.  March has been consistent.  But I like the progress I've made so far by adding AI generated images.
When I release my "How to get rich quick by selling AI images on Adobe Stock" tutorial video for $100, all newbies out there should buy.   :D :D  It took 10 years to get to the level I was at with regular photos.  It took only 6 months to nearly double that level by adding AI generated images.  I thought AI images would destroy us, but so far not a bad deal.  I started way too late in AI images, but somehow made it work.  It must have been a bonanza for those who started at the beginning of last year.

It seems that AI sales haven't overly hurt sales of non-AI images which is a nice thing!
That also implies a big win for Adobestock in additional revenue. I also wonder how
contributors (especially exclusive) at other agencies that don't allow AI uploads feel about it?

Yes, that hasn't happened yet so far.  Good!!
I think I'm getting more non-AI photo sales because I get more traffic to my portfolio from AI photos.  So, adding more materials to your portfolio is good in general.

exactly it took you 10 years to get to level 1,on Adobe from what I've seen time from how much you are a contributor is a key point for how much you sell,as it should be,I think it is right that contributors who start earlier earn more I have been a contributor on Adobe for only 6 years,and I currently have less than 1000 AI contents for sale.

in my opinion you sell more AI content because in general you sell more of everything because you have been a contributor for longer,my 6 years are still few.

congratulations,and i hope one day i can arrive where you are now! :)

I have always thought that AI content cannot reduce the sales of real content,AI content is a separate thing that goes on its own,however,I remain convinced that it needs to be regulated in a better way.


I hope that SS also decides to accept AI content,but I doubt it,perhaps there could also be a reason related to how their sales system works,or they are simply no longer interested in continuing this business with contributors.

I think if an agency that is selling AI images is seeing a sales boom, then agencies that are not selling AI content soon will be selling AI content.
