Hello everyone, 

Have you had the experience if it is good to upload 3 or 4 photos every day? Or is it better to upload 10 photos once a week? 

How do you usually do it and how do you get most sales? 

I have now around 1200 photos on my account, and I upload some photos every day since around 6 months. Got around 35 sales by now. 

Thanks in advance for your opinions and experiences! 

Ayla Harbich

You might have slight boost for visibility for few hours(?) when you just uploaded the image. That's based on the fact that customers can search recent images. So if you wanna get that "boost", you should maybe try to upload all your images in a time when you believe most of the customers are searching. But in the end, we sadly don't have much control over it, because it's the Adobe staff who is going to review and approve the images based on their own timing.

Here's what I do: I am constantly reviewing my LR catalog (160K+ images) for potentially saleable images and when I find/edit some I move them to the Adobe Stock Publish Service. Then every few weeks or so I "Publish" those to Adobe Stock. They sit there in my "Uploaded Files/New" section. Every day or so I pick ~6 to add keywords and titles, then publish those. In 24-48 hours, they've been reviewed and accepted or rejected. If there are any rejects, I note that as a keyword in my LR catalog (I ...

Here's what I do: I am constantly reviewing my LR catalog (160K+ images) for potentially saleable images and when I find/edit some I move them to the Adobe Stock Publish Service. Then every few weeks or so I "Publish" those to Adobe Stock. They sit there in my "Uploaded Files/New" section. Every day or so I pick ~6 to add keywords and titles, then publish those. In 24-48 hours, they've been reviewed and accepted or rejected. If there are any rejects, I note that as a keyword in my LR catalog (I use the keyword ASR for Adobe Stock Reject) so that I don't accidentally resubmit the same image. I look carefully at the rejected image again and decide whether it can be re-edited and re-submitted. If so, I move it to PS, where it gets a new image name and then save it back to LR. In this slow and steady manner, I'm releasing a steady trickle of images, learning what will pass the quality hurdle, and gradually building my portfolio without spending an extraordinary amount of time. Hope this helps.
