Why should that have any effect on other agencies?

Are you asking if you take your content off Shutterstock, will your content perform better on Adobe?

Did you submit the same assets to BOTH agencies?

What you sell on Shutterstock, you won't sell on Adobe stock, and vice versa. I think customers are looking for different things, my bestseller here is a middle seller there. But my general earnings with Adobe stock are higher, so why should I bother too much to put my images on a different platform?

Generally if you are contributing stock content as a job and not a hobby you will be submitting to multiple platforms.

Perhaps.  But submitting identical assets to multiple stock sites tends to dilute the asset's earning potential especially if customers can get the same asset elsewhere for less money (credits).

Please see this part from my other comment:

"However if you have very unique content and there are customers that go out of their way to search out where they can purchase your content then maybe you will notice a light impact with regards to sales."

Whether or not you have content on Shutterstock or not won't affect sales on Adobe Stock.

However if you have very unique content and there are customers that go out of their way to search out where they can purchase your content then maybe you will notice a light impact with regards to sales.
