https://stock.adobe.com/it/contributor/207264301/luisandres?load_type=author&prev_url=detail

this is the image he put in his portfolio

https://stock.adobe.com/it/images/cafe/376703079?prev_url=detail

and this is mine in my portfolio

https://stock.adobe.com/stock-photo/id/32282345

I sent an email to the support I hope they will ban it soon

Unfortunately, there are these parasites that try to live on the shoulders of others, it is not the first time this happens

Cropped the images a little and upsampled. That's not a nice guy…

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.

That user's account is gone now.  

Good riddance to him.
