Once you pass the 1000 mark, it becomes exact. No longer rounded

I will check my screenshots from the happy days. That would be really interesting, if you get into the top 1000 the ranking is real?

dec 26 pos 253, dec 28 pos 263

I dont know why I cannot upload my screenshots? I keep getting an error message.

If you are using a newer Mac, screenshots are generated in very high resolution. You then simply have to reduce the size by half. I assume that you can then upload them.

You dont know that.

There are huge non english language stock groups. Perhaps 10k is an exaggeration but there are a lot more people active and successful than you see in this group. At pos 4000 it could very easily be 2000 people.

I.keep getting round number positions all the time - 4000, 3200, 3000 or even 250 etcso it is brackets of people with same or close dl numbers.

It is not supposed to be an exact total ranking system

My rankings are all in increments of 10.  So yeah, 10 people share the rank probably, not 100 nor 1,000.  That's bogus.

since the rankings are based on download numbers it makes sense that there will be a lot of people sharing ranks, especially at the middle of the bell curve for download numbers. There probably aren't that many people getting over a few 100 images a week (see previous post for how many), but in there are probably a lot of people getting the exact same number of downloads in the 10-50 range.

Yes, just imagine how many people have (making up a number) 20 DLs this week. The system at Adobe isn't going to make a group for 20-21-22-23-24 Etc.

Many people, and I'm one, if I look right now at my weekly rank, it's just showing - - -  and I know someone who has a lifetime that's that, because she hasn't made enough sales yet to be ranked at all. It's just a relative number to tell us, personally, how we are doing, compared to other people. And the fact that someone might have 30,000 images or 3,000 and someone else has 30, the rank is meaningless.

Yeah, of course at that low rank of 1-20 downloads per week, there are many ties.

The highest that I noticed was 800. (I have to click something specific for my rank to show - lifetime or weekly - at times I cant make it to appear, even in the same week. Maybe its a bug)

This website doesnt accept.jpeg, but only accepts.jpg It also accepts png even they are in larger format. I actually have to go to photoshop to convert the file - a pain.

I'm trying to understand what you wrote?

Here's what the site accepts:
Allowed file types: doc, gif, jpg, mpg, pdf, png, txt, zip
Restrictions: 4 per post, maximum total size 2000KB, maximum individual size 500KB

This could be important... maximum individual size 500KB

Here's what I think is the lowest position is, which could be thousands of people. No downloads will show - - -  at the beginning of the week.

Highest position = 97 (last 12 months), annual low of around 900 and currently 337 but improving still. A steady avg of around 400. Lifetime Rank 494. 20k images sole trader.

Very impressive!
How many years did it take to upload 20k of images? Traditional photos or AI?

Thanks everyone... appreciated.

I just checked my ranking spread sheet and it was actually 79 not 97 as my best performing week. Right numbers just wrong order.

If I remember correctly I started with Fotolia/Adobe sometime around 2013/14. I used to upload a lot to begin with but I've learned volume isn't necessarily king. Quality, quality, quality is my mantra now so I try to avoid volume for the sake of it. I'd rather submit 10 good images a month than 100 average. I love what I do so I feel very lucky in that sense!

No AI. For the work I do I just see too many mistakes that I'd have to correct. Not as much control/precision. By the time I've found the right AI image and corrected it, I could have taken / drawn it myself 😂. But, each to their own. It's what works for you that counts.

I am really impressed and it gives me hope.

You are currently king/queen of the solo artists jungle on msg...:)

I agree on the quality part, but I also experiment a lot so my port looks a little mixed.

If 10 people had the same number of sales, of course.  But not 10,000 people having the same number of sales at this level.  Maybe at the very bottom, it's possible 10,000 contributors share a rank with 0 sale.

Are you not afraid to be featured on top sellers list by uploading only best images that will sell? After copycats, I started to delude my portfolio.

That's true, but people with 0 sales do not get a rank. Look on Monday morning, just after Midnight. No sales, No rank.

Can you tell how many total contributors Adobe has?

Not really. We don't know anything about artist account numbers either. But if mine is 13-14 years old and 205931477 and yours in new, subtract and see how many new users since 2010. There are all kinds of pitfalls in trying to estimate how many users. Active users or dormant people who once uploaded, or DOA accounts of people who signed up and never upload or had any images accepted.

205 million?  ;D JoAnn's ID number is so low that Adobe software doesn't recognize her sometimes. Not enough digits.

Here's a number that might be of interest? In 2018 on Shutterstock, there were 17,877 artists who had 1,000 or more images. But SS said how many millions of contributors they had signed up.

I can't give a good answer, but I think what you would want to know is, how many active users and "active" would be our definition. Should we say, uploaded 20 images in 2023, or 100, or ??? That's pretty minimal and that's your competition. That and up. All of this is difficult to understand or define with any accuracy. That's why there are so many guesses and assumptions on the forum. We just don't know, and they (Adobe) aren't telling.

Good Luck, your main concern, and I don't mean this in a smart ass manner, you should be looking at what you produce and upload and your sales, and worried less about how images are ranked in a search, or how many images your competition has, or who or how many others are doing the same thing. Unlike many other businesses, knowing your competition in stock, isn't really useful for making yourself better or more money. Knowing what sells, yes of course, but not who or how many?

Your most important knowledge and information should be, how to make good and useful images that buyers want to download. And maybe as you move along, what is a waste of time, shooting, uploading and editing, because there's not enough demand?
