Adobe Stock / Re: Adobestock LATAM is selling exclusive briefs
« on: August 20, 2021, 08:06 »
Thanks Mat,

Yep, I have checked Facebook and Instagram (and all temporary stories redirected to Stockeros, so not many opportunities to learn there). I also checked Spanish Crowdcast and webinars are all introductory, which might be great for some, but they seem more oriented towards people starting rather than actual contributors.
The idea of having to create an association if I don't want to pay for the briefs is disappointing.

Taht said, I will remove the video as I don't want problems. At this stage is just a matter of choosing.

The best pictures are taken with the camera you are more familiar with, stock doesn't require more.

That said, if you want to buy a new one... you don't need an expensive one. Even the cheaper cameras  nowadays have incredible capabilities.

Hi Mat,

Removing the video and pretend that 'nothing has happened' and 'nothing was said there' is not kind from Adobe.

Thanks for the links, but I have not been able to find in the links provided on your first message the info inside the paid course, like, for example, a masterclass on artistic direction (attached) or the exclusive briefs mentioned in the video by Mariana:


"This call for content is sent to all our collaborators, so please subscribe if you are not recieving it. [...] And this call for content is exclusive to some collaborators (usually the top ones), but what I will do is give it to you (you = to all who paid the subscription) because I am interested in your growth."

WOW, thanks Mariana for being interested only in the growth of those who pay this academy. Shouldn't all contributors deserve the same respect and opportunities?


Anyways, makes no sense to continue with this discussion if we are going in circles and Adobe's position is negating the facts. I know you did all you could.
 

Enjoy your holidays.

But the special keyword is not shown in the published keywords on each photo of this group, right?
Because I just tried to find out which keyword they used, but no same keyword on that promoted photos.

Why I remember Getty and iStock in this case? Deleting accounts if you have the same photos on both sites.
Why I am remembering SS, who prefer to delete the accounts of the copyright holder instead of deleting the accounts of thieves?
And so on!

In which world do we live?
Well, business is indeed the worst side of communication. Do not trust anyone, but deal with the devil, if you can get a benefit from it. There are no friends in business life.

So, publishing the video here: Only Adobe could make you problems, right? We are afraid to publish truth and the big Adobe (who seems to be the bad boy) and all the others will fight directly with unfair tricks?

MAD WORLD!
BAD WORLD!

You are right. Somehow we saw Adobe as the good one after Shutterstock reduced comissions, and that was a mistake. Business is business :'(

About keywords: Yep, it's supposed to be an exclusive hidden keyword

Wow... things are getting worse. Adobe has given a keyword to people who paid this course (stockeros1, https://stock.adobe.com/search?k=stockeros1), so those contributors can add this keyword to their pictures and this way Adobe can find them easily and promote them more frequently to increase their sales.
How do you know:
1 Adobe gave them that keyword?
2. The keyword is to let Adobe promote them above others?
Isn't it possible (I don't know, I don't submit there) for anyone to make up a keyword and add it to their images?
If so a group of people could use a specific made up keyword so that they can use it for external marketing or for any other purpose.

Still, Mat is usually faster at getting back with answers, so the ball's still in his court.

It's almost two weeks since all this Adobe's debate started in the Spanish speaking community, some of the content from this collaboration has been shared in Facebook stock groups and it is now possible to see it for real even if they decided to shoot down the video linked here (the one that brought to this discussion). I am afraid I cannot share those videos here because I don't want to get in trouble.
 
I can just share that the keyword was given to them specifically.  :-\

Start in the forum with this announcement is not the best start I can imagine. I Hope to contribute with helpful tips as well  :)

Thanks for the welcome

S, yo creo que el stock es para aprender y tener una motivacin mientras haces fotos. Una vez ya lo dominas... A trabajar en fotografa pero con clientes directamente ;)

Por cierto, yo tambin vendo ms en iStock. Una sorpresa, porque tard ms de un ao en entrar por miedo a las bajas comisiones que haba ledo que daban

Hi Uncle Pete,
The complain to Adobe is that they are giving the exclusive workshops and briefs to this company so they can sell it in their course.

It means that Adobe's briefs and workshops are being sold (through a 3rd party company authorised by them).

Mat was very kind and told me that he will check it. Let's see what they reply

Hi Mat,
Thanks for your fast reply. I am afraid this info is not available in English, but there are several youtube videos where Spanish/LATAM Adobe's representative talks with this company about exclusive briefs and webinars only available after paying this suscription.

Just to show an example, in this exact minute I link they say: "Con Adobe insisto, tenemos una informacin que es brutal y adems mucha de ella a mi se me hincha el pecho decirlo, es exclusiva de (The paid subscription company)"
 which will be translated as: "Let me insist, with Adobe we have a huge amount of information and I am very proud to say that it is exclusive to (The paid subscription company)"

https://youtu.be/29dkruEP75E?t=444

And two minutes after they say: "a lot of info that normal people don't have and thanks to exclusive briefs that Adobe is giving us and now we have inside our (paid) course..."

I appreciate your answer though, made me see that this is not expected to happen in Adobe and that we are doing right when we complain.

Adobe Stock / Adobestock LATAM is selling exclusive briefs

Hi all!
This is my first post on the community, I have been reading and learning a lot from you though :)

Ok, my question is regarding Adobestock contributor LATAM. Recently they decided to make a shift in their strategy and they are now selling their exclusive briefs and private lessons through a third party company (a small company their friends have created to sell 'make a living from photography' courses with monthly subscription).

I have nothing against this third company, it is quite normal that photographers want to sell their courses, but selling Adobestock contributor content is completely different. Somehow we all are part of the statistics that leads to content in need and as a contributor this system sounds unfair to me.
 
I haven't found anything similar in the English speaking community, so I wanted to ask if this it is also happening in all Adobestock Contributor regions.
 
As far as I know, stock companies usually give exclusive briefs in case the photographer obtains good results or if they become exclusive, and they provide free workshops. This is the first time that we are being charged for this information, right?

I am still in shock  :(
