any news here?
i have 2 weeks left

If you different portfolios how you can even compare them, I have exactly the same portfolios on AS and SS, for me SS is 3x the number of downloads of AS.
SS 99% are only 0.10 USD per download, for me.
For me SS would need to sell 100 times more then AS.
But AS sells 100 times more then SS.
My case.. AS wins clearly.


Adobe Stock / Re: Genuine illustrations marked as AI

I had the same problem. But it only affected 4 vector graphics that have been online for many years. Mat has ensured that the "AI generated" has now disappeared.

Please be sure to check that and confirm @Wilm. If anyone else faces the same issue, please contact support using the contact us link at the bottom of the contributor portal.

thank you,

Mat Hayward

Hello Mat,

I can assure you that the "generated with ai" has disappeared from the 4 files.
Thanks again for your help! I really appreciate it!

However, the second problem I told you about remains. I'm aware that it doesn't belong here, but I'll write it down again anyway:

The translation does not work with Adobe Stock in many cases. Different search results are displayed for certain search terms. For example:

Tuscany (search region US or UK) brings up 427,000 results.
Toscana (search region Italy) brings up 276,000 results.
Toskana (search region Germany) brings up 215,000 results.
Toscane (search region France) brings 214,000 results.

Another example:

Bicycle (search region US) brings 2,578,000 results.
Fahrrad (search region Germany) brings up 1,921,000 results.
The same applies to (bicyclette/France, bicicletta/Italy, bicileta/Spain) - 1,921,000 results.

657,000 files are not displayed due to translation problems.

That makes no sense!

Best regards,


I assume it is programmed:
Fahrrad search is for BICYCLE only.
Bicycle also searches for bicycle, bike, cycle.

Sounds like even more good content from experienced producers will be going near exclusively to Adobe.

They change nothing and keep winning.

Well said! They forget that Adobe is doing a better job of things than they are. If Adobe ever offers exclusivity then S/S will suffer for their disrespect.   

Yes! My AdobeStock earnings per day are the same as SS per MONTH. lol insane!

Okay. Yes i read this part.
No minor. Overweight man is adult and woman too.
If AI-image, no model release = account ban?

Overweight man = discrimination? Saw other images and videos after a quick search, online, so this should be okay. (?)
Maybe i just skip these topics. Still not 100% clear. Try & error (account gone) is maybe too risky for me.

There really needs to be a checkbox for things that you (I, and maybe everyone else) aren't sure about.

Because I'm worried about having the account blocked, I ask.
How can I mark sensitive content when uploading so that the AS employee doesn't block the account while image selection. So where's the checkbox for "adult content"? Don't see any... Other sites have a simple checkbox.

Especially if Mat reads here, it would be great to get an answer.
1. overweight man in gym while biting in a hamburger (discriminatory, and everyone is so super sensitive these days)
2. naked woman in the shower, breasts visible (clearly adult content)


Do you have an example, one or two rejected images? full size

is it still? you have to enter a title AND a different description too. Because this i once stopped uploading. super annoying to add one additional word to the description for each image. So it was not super easy to upload.

There is no code I used in GPT, I have just used the web setup interface and provided some custom instructions and documents.

can u publish your code you used on CHATGPT here?
"Your access to custom GPTs isnt ready yet. Were rolling this feature out over the coming days. Check back soon."
Documents? Thought it is text input only? Okay i will wait until it is possible for my account too.

To effectively generate titles and tags, this chat must be able to receive batches of 30-100 photos (in low resolution) and produce a list with the name of each file, title, description, and tags as an xls file. And all this must be done quickly.

If you upload a "Iron Man" image it maybe uses the word "Marvel" or similar? Need to check everything after. Do not want my account blocked. Dangerous game :)

Easy to upload and overall fair. No complaints, typical low earner. Revenue maybe 1% compared to Adobe. Better than other low earners because there aren't constant "exciting news" making things worse. Pretty high annoying rejection rates. Generally recommended. But I still have the better older commission with 80% commission. It's now only 48%

Adobe Stock / Re: Adobe AI content double standards
« on: November 02, 2023, 13:24 »
can somebody explain why AI vector images are not allowed? Are these files not editable by the customer or what is the problem about? It`s like fake vector files? Or it does not matter for the customer? edit: I dont know how a vector file is working, so it is interesting whats going on here.

Adobe Stock / Re: Adobe AI content double standards
« on: October 30, 2023, 07:51 »
are these Ai vectors editable like hand drawn? i dont do vector, so i dont know.

Why did Canstock give up? Personal or financial? It's a shame somehow. No attempt was made to find a solution? But the running costs are probably too high.

« on: October 06, 2023, 20:40 »
Around 3 days now only from upload date until online. 5 of 500 images are pending since 1 month. Probably someone got tired of them and simply left the last ones unedited.  :)

Is about your device and caching, Adobe bug. Clear the cache of adobestock. Sounds like a bug. I had a similar thing 3 days ago at indivstock, where I had "endless moments when logging in with Checking your login details, just a moment .

"If no action is taken, your images will be automatically donated to the free section ...."

So take action - just say no!

lol. i have 9k files there, dont want 4000 emails from dreamstime. is a super low earner for me. dreamstime is so weird.  :o
