I prefer using depositphotos.com they have more designer-friendly roylaties.

Haha. They cut royalties this year by 25%. What used to be 36c per download is now 27c...

Adobe Stock continues to grow in sales; plus Mat comes on here and lets us know what's going on which is a bonus.

Seems like sales on Adobe decreases since their new announcement and region plan, if we can believe the Poll Results on the right and see the graphs.

Mat - in the past -  indeed did that and still does it, if it has nothing to do with the new announcement. But clear answers to that many many questions about the new announcements he did not answer yet, even if they came from contributors, he usually directly reply.
I will not stop writing this until we get answers and will not stop saying the NO answer IS also an answer! Which makes the whole thing worse than any expected.

Adobe Stock has never been so slow as in the last few or more weeks. I'm not a large seller on the site averaging $40 a month over a recent 12 month period - until last month. I've only had 2 downloads so far this month. I'm glad I never listened to the loud mouths telling us on SS forums to abandon SS for Adobe Stock.

Interesting. Maybe different portfolios attract different buyers.

At this point there's no turning back.

I see a similar downward scenario in PODs and in every other marketplace dealing with digital products where the supply overwhelmed the demand, stock images, design, 3D, video, music, ebooks, software, not to mention the freelancers working for $5 on Fiverr.

We must face and accept the reality that most of the stocky-looking styles are now nearly worthless in the digital market, at best they can still have some value used in PODs for some time but how long before even PODs become inundated with billions of cheap copycats sold by drop shippers for a pittance ?

FineArt is the last bastion of hope for those who can go the extra mile, anybody else will give up and surrender as the juice is not worth the squeeze anymore.
