And it's going to benefit contributors.

Before, it was showing the most popular images from a contributor's portfolio. Today, they started showing similar images from the contributor's portfolio to better compete with the "Similar Images" section.

I woke up to more downloads this morning and people are downloading similar images from my portfolio. I haven't seen sales moving at this pace since November. March is going to be a great month if this new change sticks.

Good to hear!  Thanks for the notice.

In case you're reading this on a mobile device -- it doesn't look like the change has happened there, but the desktop site is doing what it should be!

I dont see any difference.

For me its still showing my most popular images inside the same artist section regardless of similarity. And there is no change on my download counts. So business as usual...

BTW, Hi everybody.

Try doing a incognito search. I think they're slowly rolling it out to all regions. It worked on my computer in the morning, and then later on my mobile devices. I think most people will see it today or tomorrow.

I have it...it looks to me that its been tweaked a bit and returning more relevant images rather than those deemed visually similar by some "advanced" software maybe taking keywords into account too.

I asked a friend living on the other side of the world to do a few searches and it differs completely from the same searching I did and sometimes several pages. No I recon its just another feeble experiment resulting in nothing.
