@Wilm

of course if the number of downloads remains more or less constant at this point an RPD is an excellent reference,from here I now understand your concern.

I could write you my RPD on Adobe but my situation is completely different,because my RPD is going up but more importantly I more than doubled the number of sales between 2022 and 2023 and tripled my earnings,so I don't have a constant number of downloads like you and therefore my RPD doesn't matter as much.

I had read that you are losing inspiration somehow,that's maybe even why you're not uploading,music helps me a lot in this,and I always try to look up because if I start looking down I get dizzy :D
or more simply,it's better not to think about the years that are passing and that we are getting older and all the rest,so much is of little use.

but anyway for you this is just a hobby,I aim for something more,I know I still have a lot of work to do and it will take a few more years but I will make it.

thank you for your reply! :)

I think society is not being told a lot. I see this in the example of Ukraine. There is zero information about Ukraine on US TV channels. But in Ukraine there is war and genocide. The same can be said about UFOs and aliens. The media of mass disinformation simply do not talk about it and everyone thinks that it means none of this. It's simple. This is a massive deception of the masses through the media.

Less than 0.1% of the population, or 1 in 1,000 people, has been diagnosed with gender dysphoria. We read about the people with a psychological disorder and the other alphabet people, making the news as they force their personal choice issues on us. You brought up something more important to the world, where an entire country is being taken over, at war, people dying. Genocide, civilians murdered, the Russian government lying on a daily basis. UFOs and aliens are not news or important, they are just sensational stories to sell tabloids or fantasy books.

Our gender is not debatable, labeled as assigned at birth, it is our genetics. We don't get to pick, based on some emotion or psychological disorder. People being murdered in the Ukraine is more important. If you don't see enough honest news, you aren't looking in the right places. If you are depending on news that comes out of Russia, of course it's all lies and coverup. The rest of the world is showing us the truth.

The moderators on this forum chose to remove certain posts and leave the slur "Alphabet People".

 I will not debate this subject further.

However I also cannot prevent others doing so with a moderation team who feel it appropriate to allow such slurs to remain. Of course that means your unpleasant statements are in the public domain where your customers exist who will of course contain "Alphabet People". Good luck with that.

You have no problem calling anyone who disagrees with you a racist and a bigot. When someone disagrees you want them censored, to block their free opinion and thoughts. When anyone disagrees with your nutty UFO and alien crap, you come out slinging personal attacks and ignoring the facts that don't fit. Maybe it's you who should be blocked because of your unpleasant statements. You don't get to trample my thought and free speech with your close minded woke agenda, that doesn't allow anyone saying any different than what you believe.

The moderation team lets you get away with lies and personal attacks, why should they be censoring a word or phrase that defines the many fringe groups?

For countless years downloads weren't below 0,38. This is what came in this afternoon - those 0,34 are becoming more and more...

I recently saw videos for 10 USD and images for 1.65 USD,my RPD on Adobe goes up,if you don't upload Wilm this is the result.

if I were you I would take advantage of your advantageous position,go back to uploading at least 30 contents a month,any type of content and you will see how everything goes back uphill,if you no longer upload anything the system starts to put you aside.

I am in a more disadvantaged position than you,I produce much more than you but I collect less than you,because you started before me,but I know that in a couple of years I will start to harvest the fruits of my work,just as I am now reaping the fruits of what I produced a year ago and more.

this in my opinion is one of the things that has changed a lot in recent years,as time passes we need more and more time to see the results of our work.

Why should the RPD go down, if I don't upload? If the number of downloads would go down, I would agree. But the RPD has nothing to do with it.

because maybe you make more sales and most likely you also make higher sales?

but please satisfy my curiosity,are you telling me that even if you don't upload your download numbers remains unchanged?If so,how long has it been since you uploaded?

if I may ask of course.

Of course you may ask.  :)

I've uploaded 13 images in the last six months - so 2 images a month on average. I now have a total of 1567 on Adobe Stock. If you like, I have increased my portfolio by 0.8% in this six-month period. These images have generated a total of 11 downloads - an extremely unsatisfactory result. My hit rate used to be much better.

Nevertheless, as I have already written, the download figures are fairly constant.

And because the download figures are constant, but less money is coming in, there is a problem with the RPD.

Of course, I could upload significantly more, perhaps sell a little more and earn the same money at the end of the day. But that doesn't change the deteriorating RPD. If 1,000 sales used to bring in $ 1,200 and now only bring in $ 750, it's clear that the RPD is clearly trending downwards.

Based on today's RPD 1,000 downloads = $560.

Deliberately diverting a topic into another direction is trolling and flooding. Your drain is counted.

You will never get it, will you?

You are so blind that it hurts!

Adobe Stock / Re: Filter Adobe Port for AI only?

Adobe hasn't provided us with a user interface for this feature, but you can do it by editing the URL

See a post I made earlier:

https://www.microstockgroup.com/fotolia-com/what's-your-weekly-ranking-and-how-many-images/msg600772/#msg600772

You can look at search URLs for syntax examples, but after the URL there is one question mark and then additional filters are prefaced with an ampersand, so for transparent images sorted by downloads in my portfolio you'd use:

https://stock.adobe.com/contributor/4221/jo-ann-snover?&filters%5Btransparent%5D=only&order=nb_downloads

If you wanted to see everything except transparent images it would be =exclude versus =only

Some of the things you might find useful:

&filters%5Bgentech%5D=only

&order=creation

&order=nb_downloads

&order=relevance

&filters%5Bcontent_type%3Azip_vector%5D=1

&filters%5Bcontent_type%3Aillustration%5D=1

&filters%5Bcontent_type%3Aimage%5D=1

&filters%5Bcontent_type%3Aphoto%5D=1

&filters%5Bcontent_type%3Avideo%5D=1

&filters%5Bis_editorial%5D=1

&filters%5Billustrative%5D=include

Its been a couple of weeks since House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Michael McCaul was surprisingly candid about one of his partys direction. I think Russian propaganda has made its way into the United States, unfortunately, and its infected a good chunk of my partys base, the Texas Republican complained.

Less than a week later, the House Intelligence Committees Republican chair, Ohios Mike Turner, echoed the sentiment, conceding that some of his GOP colleagues are peddling rhetoric thats directly coming from Russia. Soon after, former Defense Secretary William Cohen, a longtime GOP lawmaker, said he believes many congressional Republicans are now working as the arm of Vladimir Putin.
If these rebukes were designed to discourage GOP officials from making the kind of public comments the Kremlin wants to hear, they dont appear to be having their intended effect.

On Friday, for example, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene appeared on Steve Bannons podcast and continued to peddle the same rhetoric shes pushed since Russia invaded Ukraine more than two years ago. Vladimir Putin has not said he wants to go march across Europe and take Europe, the Georgia Republican said, as if the Russian autocrat is a credible source of information.

The same day, The New York Times published an op-ed from Republican Sen. J.D. Vance of Ohio a persistent opponent of U.S. support for Ukraine, and a man who has professed his total indifference to Ukraines future which argued that a Russian victory is inevitable.

Only putin's useful idiots still believe that trump and maga will lift even a finger to help Ukraine, when influential MAGA representatives believe that Ukrainians are n*zis.
