... one even being a photo sale of $26.40! Don't know if I've ever had a photo sale that high on Adobe before.

That's an extended license royalty - congrats. They don't happen often any more and are often discounted - your customer paid at full price :) $79.99 * 0.33 = $26.3967

Very interesting. Thanks for that info.

Sales recovered more at the end of the week. Had a couple of $26+ sales which helped to recover RPD, with one even being a photo sale of $26.40! Don't know if I've ever had a photo sale that high on Adobe before.
I think that's for an extended license. They are usually discounted though, just got two 21.12$ ones last week. So congrats on getting an non-discounted one :)

My best week after 2 months of tanked sales. Fingers crossed that it will continue to improve!
Mothers Day images for me didnt do well.

(One day last year I woke up to a client buying several $26 licenses! That was fantastic, but happened only once.)

Very ordinary sales numbers this week yet seeing my best weekly ranking. Must be a slow week for everyone.

so far this May has the exact same number of sales as last year,also the exact same earnings.

according to my data,sales should increase from May 20th and I will probably end the month 10-20% better than May 2023.

most likely,in June I will have an increase of 40-50% and I foresee the same for July and August  :)

September I really don't know,will be an unpredictable month! :)

I have moved up a bit, now at pos 4890 weekly ranking.

Hope it picks up after the 20th. FWIW I am seeing an interesting mix of sales. A lot of files that I uploaded last year that didn't take for the summer season are beginning to get sales now.

The queue is still very slow, but sometimes I have files accepted within a day, while the rest of the batch needs 30 days (photo ai). Illustrations move quickly, video takes 2-3 days which is perfect.

I am trying to balance the long queue by mixing content and already uploading some winter themes.

Since april 15, there has been a drastic decline in my sales. My weekly ranking used to be around 12000 and today it is 26000. Total images are around 4300.

and what about uploads?if I may ask?

I upload new files almost every day.

As far as I'm concerned,a month in which I earn 10 or 20% more than the same month of the previous year is not a good month.

40-50% compared to the same month of the previous year,is an "OK" result,nothing exceptional but it's acceptable,because exactly i upload new contents almost every day,and earning only 40-50% more after a whole year of incessant uploads isn't much but "OK"

in any case,as far as I'm concerned,as long as I continue to earn more every month compared to the same month of the previous year,I will continue to work,if I ever earn less for 3 consecutive months always compared to the same month of the previous year,I will definitely stop,because if i earn less while continuing to upload it means that it's over.

for me what matters most is the number of sales,this number really cannot go down but must always increase over time.

earnings may also vary a little,that is normal,but not the number of sales.

I am uploading everyday, the new images are getting some sales but the sales of older ones have declined since last month. March was BME for me, even last year I got more sales with less images.

if March was your BME then is normal that for the moment you have dropped a little.

i sold 50% more in April (always compared to April 2023)but this May is a bit slow,i expect a recovery in the last 2 weeks of the month.

As mentioned by Cobalt here or in another thread, many countries had public holidays during the first two weeks of May. People in those countries took time off work, leading to lower sales. To illustrate this, I've attached a graph showing the number of clip downloads from my portfolio on Artlist. There was a clear drop in downloads during the first two weeks of May, but they have picked back up this week.

Good week so far after a bad week.
Impressive ! And your graph is so steady! (Mine is totally up and down)
With those downloads, its not a surprise that you are in 1000 weekly. Congratulations!

Thank you!!  My production of AI images have slowed down for the last 2 months.  So, I got stuck at the same level.  I got to diversify my AI portfolio to go above 1,000th.  That's my goal this year.

How do you come up with saleable concepts?

Good week so far after a bad week.

exactly,that's where I need to get to,250 usd a week from Adobe Stock and everything will be better  :)

unfortunately I started already late in 2018,if only I had started a couple of years earlier I had much more economic possibilities,let's say I started microstock in the worst possible conditions,and now in these times every investment takes a long time,even traveling 100 km by car has become a problem these days.

I just hope I don't get too old before I get to $250 a week,I'd like to be able to enjoy it for a few more years while I'm still young enough,I hope it will be possible!

About 40% of my Adobe Stock revenue is generated from AI photos I started uploading in last September less than 1 year ago.  So, you can do it too if you meditate and levitate sometimes.  If you think about "Why I can't", that's where you'll get stuck.  Start thinking about "Why I can too".

Had a good day yesterday and my ranking went up further.  I think I have to make over $300/week to go above 1,000th in weekly ranking.

My advice based on my experience is, if you just try to imitate what's selling on Adobe Stock, you probably end up not selling and waste your time because hundreds of other contributors are doing the same making similar images flooding the market.  Your images won't show up on keyword search on first or second page.  You have to make different variation of bestsellers or come up with totally original concept without much competition to monopolize that specific genre/concept of images.  With AI generation, you can create images that never existed before.  I see some on the top sellers list are doing just that.  I think that's what Adobe wants us to do by allowing us to submit AI generated images.  They want to expand boundary of conventional stock images to gain advantage over Shutterstock, iStock and other competitors.  That'll give AdobeStock more subscribers and give us more revenues.  It's a win-win at least for now.

blvdone,thanks for the reply,of course you're right,we always have to try to think that we can,and that's what I do every day!  :) 

but the fact is that I don't sell what I can sell on Adobe,but what I have to sell,my sales as well as everyone's sales on Adobe are predetermined,that's why I already know how much I will sell each month.

except for some unique content that only I have,then in that case the sales system goes to fish for my content because there are no others,and I make the sale.

regarding all the other contents,all the concepts and the best-selling things,I can only sell a certain predetermined number,which increases over time.

I'm sure I'll make it to 250 USD a week,the question is how long it will take.

in fact I saw the difference when my portfolio was highlighted I earned 200 usd in two days.

but unfortunately,since there are many of us contributors,I have to wait before I can regularly make 250 usd a week or more,for the moment it is only rarely allowed to me.

but still better this way,than SS or Istock for example,where you don't understand anything about how much you can sell and it's all unpredictable.

at least with Adobe you can make long-term projects,and there are certainties that over time if you work you can earn more and more!

I will reap the fruits of the work I'm doing today,in a couple of years from now,when my portfolio will enjoy greater exposure.

the exposure of your portfolio on Adobe is earned first of all over time,and then obviously other factors too.

It's all mainly a question of time!I just hope not too much time!  :)
