based on previous years it's too early for any announcement - last year's was late Feb(?) and credits in early March (?) - dates may be off by a week or so

i won a bet last year against those who thought the program would be canceled - anyone want to take the bet this year & buy me a few americanos?

Nope, I bet with you that sometimes we need to be patient and wait until we get the news, before predicting it.

Feb. 3rd last year, Mat said:

If you had between 250-5,999 downloads during the calendar year, you qualified to receive a complimentary code for one-year plan from these options: Creative Cloud Photography (20GB), Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, or After Effects.

If you had 6,000 or more downloads in 2022, you qualified to receive a complimentary code for an Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps one year plan.

Only contributors active in 2022 are eligible for the bonus. To be considered active, you must have uploaded and had approved a minimum of 20 new assets in the calendar year, 2022.

Please note that video downloads are equal to 3 downloads in consideration of the bonus program qualification.


I added the bold because every year the same question comes up, What is active? 20 is hardly a big number?

The problem is it may be a calendar year between when you submit the assets and when they are reviewed.  We would need a clarification on timing.

AS may figure we make enough each year thus don't need the free program anymore 

FYI Salary: Stock Photography (January, 2024) United States

As of Dec 27, 2023, the average annual pay for a Stock Photography in the United States is $62,338 a year.

no need for such negativism - this happens every year - lots of whining, then the bonus comes but none of the whiners apologize or even admit they were wrong
that's why i offered the bet - put your money behind your pessimistic opinions

Having been in this business since 2010 I've learned never bet against Steve lol! Yeah, I was being a wise arse on my comments. I fully expect AS will continue the program for those that qualify. Don't remember the exact downloads and new images you must have done in 2023.

Wait, they made that claim? Maybe they included Jon and the stockholders of the agencies? I looked elsewhere and the numbers are for photographers in California, but ZR also claims good numbers locally. Really? I have experience.



They also say, "No Experience Wedding Photographer   $99,199   $8,266   $1,907   $47.69" And a strong stomach. There are fringe benefits, such as free beer and cake and lots of people dressed up for a good time.

On Topic again. I lost one of the codes. Last two years I decided to add them as I could. I'm good until 2025. Nice to be ahead and I look forward to those CC subscriptions to software I don't use. But some day I might?

I can't see how every year, someone will complain about what we get for free? Photography Plan (20GB storage) Monthly: US $9.99, which means if any of us was paying, that would be $119.88 a year. They give us $119 a year, for doing what we would do already, and people complain?

I wouldn't take that bet ;)

Though I would be happy to buy you a cup of coffee if we meet in person.

I hope the levels stay the same. I actually made it beyond the 6000 downloads.

Would love to have the full suite to play with :)

 I am losing hope, if I am not wrong, an announcement for the bonus program was in late January or early February
