Admittedly the categories are very broad but really mean nothing on the contributor's end or the buyer's. If an asset is Nature related, include it in your title and/or keywords (just type in the word Nature in the search bar and you'll see plenty of results). Abstract could go under Graphic Resourse. Nature under Landscapes, Holidays under Lifestyle, Fashion under People (or Lifestlye), etc. All things considered, categories could probably be dispensed with entirely, but it's probalby helpful on Adobe's end to include at least a few.

There are enough categories for not having any use. Formerly, you even had more categories. Adobe did reduce them.

 The category plays no role when searching for media therefore there is no need for more categories.

We have been repeatedly advised by Adobe that categories are irrelevant in terms of Buyers being able to locate assets. Take a look at the Buyer portal to confirm for yourself.

Exactly. Maybe just something on Adobe's end, to help disperse assets to moderators? We just don't know.

If there is no internal use, there is none. But you need to know that these categories started with Fotolia. So there may be a historic use of them.

Hi @PixelHD ,

This is what Adobe has to say about categories; you can click the hyperlink texts to read the detail:

"Adobe Stock uses categories to help customers zero in on the content that will best fit their needs ...". 

This is the result when I use graphic resource to search. I do not have many but a few images in category "Graphic resource", but when I search my profile using that category none of my images turn-up. On inspecting the tags of those I use graphic resource to find I observe that the words "graphic" and "resource" are included in the keywording. Hence, I conclude that categories must be for internal use only and possibly used to aid the search engine grouping in some way or the other.

 

Best wishes

Keywords are important, not categories.
