I found my image, my best seller, which I have sold 4,254 times, stolen and put back on sale by this author
this is the image he put in his portfolio
and this is mine in my portfolio
see if he also stole any of your images
I sent an email to the support I hope they will ban it soon
Adobe have a formal process for complaining that an image on stock breaches copyright, you need to follow this:
Cropped the images a little and upsampled. That's not a nice guy…
Thanks to Adobe support, stolen image removed and "author" Luisandres obviously banned
Yes, Adobe is very reactive on those issues. It's deplorable that people think they can do business with such images, especially when customers buy that image instead of the original. They get duped twice: first they get an upscaled image, and then they get an image that legally is not theirs to use. And you have lost revenues.
I'm now getting a coffee! Your image inspired me. 🙂
Glad to hear that they took immediate and unambiguous action! He'll probably just try the same scam on another photo stock site, but will get caught eventually...

Probably. It would be wise to scan the other major stock providers for that image.
Unfortunately, there are these parasites that try to live on the shoulders of others, it is not the first time this happens
That user's account is gone now.
Good riddance to him.
