Does Adobe Stock's Algorithm Favor Image Exclusivity?

Hello fellow contributors,

I have a question that's been on my mind recently. We're all aware that it's perfectly legal to upload our images to multiple stock platforms due to non-exclusive rights. However, I've been wondering whether Adobe Stock's algorithm might factor in the exclusivity of an image when determining its visibility or ranking. In other words, could the sales performance of an image potentially decrease if the algorithm detects the same image on other stock platforms?

Has anyone noticed any correlation between the exclusivity of their images and their performance on Adobe Stock? I can see it from two perspectives: On one hand, Adobe might not be keen on promoting content that's also available on competitor sites. On the other hand, different platforms attract different audiences and a good image is a good image, regardless of where it's sold. So, it's unclear how Adobe or other stock platforms might approach this.

I'd greatly appreciate your thoughts and experiences on this matter. Thanks!

It's difficult to imagine that any stock provider would invest the resources in scanning the databases of other stock providers to prove exclusivity. It seems that if exclusivity was important to Adobe, they would require Contributors to submit assets only to Adobe.

No, there is no advantage or disadvantage to uploading your assets only here.
