Adobe Stock / Re: Change to sales notification email

I just adopt the cynical view that its not a priority for them.

As before, I'm sure you're right about that. And it's not a huge matter for me either.

Just an annoyance.

I'm happy to be an Adobe Stock contributor. But, like others here, I'm disappointed that a respected high-tech company whose products we all use can't seem to get its act together when it comes to providing useful info to its contributors.

Receiving an email with my previous day's total royalty and "daily best seller" does me no good. I still have to log in to see the complete picture.

Mat, please keep workin g on this.
I don't think any stock agency produces much meaningful data to be honest.

You're right about that, and I sometimes wonder if the murkiness isn't intentional. Still, we do know that the old Fotolia site was better that what we've got now.

One thing I did not like about Fotolia was that we couldn't edit our own captions/descriptions once images were accepted there. Adobe fixed that, made it possible to do our own edits, which IMHO was a huge improvement. Beyond that, it's something of a dud.

I have few sales today but don't get "Content Sold" emails. Anybody else?


I have been getting them.

So have I. Every single one.

Adobe Stock / Re: Custom license in activity page

Thanks, Mat, for letting us know about this. We appreciate clarity.

I found that "custom" designation on a couple of recent sales, too, and the royalties were nice. Here's hoping for lots more of those!

Adobe Stock / Re: Locked out of my account

I have over $700 sitting in my account.

No matter which company one is dealing with, I don't think it's a good idea to leave that much $$$ on the table.

I always take my royalty as soon as I hit the payout level, whatever it is. I'd rather trust my personal bank with my cash than a stock company.

Selling Stock Direct / Re: Video Stock Market?

Not sure if I could trust someone called Furry Martin.

My exact thought too!

Beautifully done! It made me think of all the time spent - particularly in difficult/busy areas of London. But also, from my POV, how much of the footage I could submit as Free Rights and not Editorial.....the fireworks obviously but any of the TL street footage? Lots of recognizable logos/faces. Thanks for sharing and merry, belated Christmas! ;D

I'd love to do the same thing in the place where I live: Santa Fe, New Mexico.

But I also worry how much one can actually show of the town and its residents/tourists without running afoul of permissions issues. No way to get "model" releases for dozens of people in the street, not to mention all the buildings and shops.

Is Editorial the only way to go?
Thanks,
Santa Fe is a fantastic place, plenty of atmosphere. I look forward to watch it.
It would be best if possible to shoot very early in the morning, near sunrise, to avoid crowd, and try to remove logos.
Otherwise it is mostly for editorial use

Thanks for your response, and congratulations on your beautiful video of London.

I may give what you describe a try!

Adobe Stock / Re: My biggest sale!
« on: February 13, 2019, 15:39 »
Dare we hope this is a trend in the making?

FWIW, my highest net royalty on SS was $92 for a still and on AS $49 for a video. Both were of birds, and I was delighted in both cases.

Lets hear it for the birds...  ;D

 ;D :D ;) :)   I'm a big fan of the birds!

Seems like a bunch of the big sales are agreeing with you.

Not quite sure I'd call this "a bunch of" big(ger) sales, but they definitely are easier to take than a bunch of itsy-bitsy ones. :)

I think this will do it?

https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/sales-earnings


Yep, Pete, that works for you and it works for me. Betcha it would work for RAW and everybody else too.

Give it a try, folks. Assuming you're already logged in, it works!!!

Yes, of course I'm reading this. All (well.....most :)  )of your comments are very helpful and much appreciated. I am sharing this feedback every opportunity I get. As a contributor myself I know there is a long way to go before the portal is perfect but I can assure you we will continue to work to make it better for contributors. It did take me a while to switch from the Fotolia interface to Adobe so I fully understand the pain points you are illustrating here. I promise I will continue to keep you in the loop as the portal evolves. Please keep your feedback coming, it is being read and does have an influence in the engineering priorities with portal updates and upgrades.

Thank you, Mat. Your reliable monitoring of this forum, cordial attitude, and consistent efforts on our behalf are recognized and greatly appreciated.

Yep. Fotolia.

Adobe Stock / Re: Problem with Dashboard Changes
« on: January 24, 2019, 19:08 »
Thanks Mat.

Is there any way to get it to stay on "activity" as the default?  It always seems to revert to "top earners."

If you'll bookmark this link and use it to get to your dashboard, you will see your "activity":

https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/sales-earnings

19
I prefer by default to be shown Activity, not Top sellers as i know which they are and they're not changing every day. So if i need several times per month or week i can simply filter Top sellers, but what i check every day is Activity.

That's my preference too.

Fortunately, if you bookmark this link, you can get there easily:

https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/sales-earnings

20
I go to Adobe Stock to see my latest sales, and I bet everyone else does too.

Not everyone!


But when you look at that page, don't you also see your earnings in the chart at the top of the page? I do.

21
No need to ask Matt to change the order/priority :  simply go to your ACTIVITY page with a few clicks, then COPY the entire URL, and change your bookmark into this URL.  Finished.  I don't have to navigate to activity anymore, it's always there.
Does not work here, it always returns to the Top Sellers.
And like this you also copy the period (from date to date), so then you have to insert 2 dates every time :(


Try this one (when logged in) :
https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/sales-earnings?


That is the link without the date limit ...


Yes, that works. Thank you!

22
Thanks for  everyone. Your comments have been noted and I'll be sure to share them with the development team.

-Mat

Thanks for that, Mat.

I hope you can help the development team figure out what we contributors need in this site. Doesn't seem like it should be this hard.

23
Where the h3II do I find latest download, for example.

This is my preferred view when I go to the site. On a daily basis I want to see my latest sales, and on occasion other type of statistics.

That's what I wrote earlier today.

I go to Adobe Stock to see my latest sales, and I bet everyone else does too. That should be the automatic default setting. Not cool to have to jump through hoops just to find the basic stuff.

Definitely, it's helpful to be able to check to see which images have sold the most/best, but since that's not likely to change very often, it's not the most immediately interesting or useful data.

24
This is a wonderful new feature, Mat, because we do need to be able to see which images are our top earners. Thanks for advocating on our behalf to get it!

I will make one suggestion, though. It would be nicer if *activity* was the default feature that shows up, rather than having to use the drop-down list to find it each time we visit that page.

My AS bookmark is set to the Insights page. When I go there it's almost always because I want to see my latest sales, which used to show up automatically because they were at the top of the drop-down list, not at the bottom. Could you use your magic touch to make it work that way again?

Thank you, as always, for your help!

Adobe Stock / Re: Important Fotolia Announcement

I want a search for editing, a way to see earnings by image and type of content, sales amounts.

Yes, that information would be very helpful to see on Adobe Stock.
