As many of you know, last year Adobe Stock launched a free collection to drive traffic to the marketplace. The initial collection was limited to participation from a very small number of Adobe Stock Contributors. We were pleased with the results: traffic did increase and many visitors who initially came for free content converted to paying customers, resulting in added revenue for the larger Contributor community.
It’s now time to refresh and expand the program. For a limited time starting on June 7, many of you will see a banner in the dashboard section of the Adobe Stock Contributor portal. The banner gives you the opportunity to nominate qualified photos from your portfolio. You can nominate all eligible files (photos only at this time), or you can go through the Dashboard and nominate individual files. Please note that your best-selling images are exempt from this program. We will not be accepting any images that received more than 4 downloads in the past 12 months.
You have until June 23 to nominate any or all your eligible files. After that, the banner will go away, and our moderation team will quickly review the submissions.
A big difference between the Adobe Stock free collection and other sites offering content for free is that we are paying Contributors up front for participation. For every file approved for the free collection, we are paying a one-time rate of $5 (If paid in USD currently. Otherwise, 5 credits in your currency) . This payment is for 12 months of non-exclusive use in the free collection. After the 12 months are up, the files will automatically be returned into your paid collection.
Please see the FAQ for more details, and let me know if you have any additional questions not covered there.
Great to hear the news!
On the technical side: I am trying to accept my photos for Free Collection however the acceptance button is unresponsible, I can't press it, tried on Chrome and Brave, the screenshot below - would appreciate any help!
Try using a different web browser. That should do the trick for you.
three browsers later... it worked on Firefox.
I clicked the "Nominate all eligible assets". Now, where or how do I go through and select or de-select the photos I want to nominate before the 23rd?
You can search through your dashboard section page by page right now to see the eligible assets. OR you can wait a few hours today and we'll have added a filter to the dashboard that will show you only the eligible files.
Sounds much easier to wait! Thanks for the information. I'll check later on today or tomorrow.
If I select all images, what happens to the ones that they don't picked? do they go back to reuglar paid images
The images you nominate will remain in your paid collection until they are moved into free. If they aren't accepted into free, they will remain in your paid collection seamlessly.
I'm not able to click on Accept. I've tried other web browsers. Doesn't work.
Any other solution ? Thanks.
Same issue I can tick Eligible for free collection only but when I click on the Nominate all eligible assets I can't get the Agree button to work in either Chrome or Edge.
Even tried my mobile phone, Agree button is greyed out.
Agree button is working now
I can't get it to "agree" either.
Try refresh or signing out and in again as mine is working now.
I solved the problem by using an iPad instead of my computer.
had the same issue, tried three different browsers, worked on Firefox
Can payment for any accepted assets for the free collection be deposited into my "Available Earnings" account? I Would rather have it there for drawing down later, than an immediate up-front payment.
