Why does Adobe treat the work of amateurs like trash?

I understand that Adobe Stock prefers to evaluate the work of professionals who have been with them for a long time first. I think it's fair.

However, even though I'm not a professional, I tried to do my best to generate photos with AI.

- I read the support material that Adobe offers and spent a lot of time. After, I added some images.

- I later discovered that the deadline of one month that appears in the system is false and the deadline would be three months. OK.

- I looked at the photographs they post weekly for inspiration and I looked for information on social media. This way I discovered that I would have to make adjustments to the images. As there is no option to change, I deleted everything and redid this process 3 times.

With the deletions and insertions I made, the deadline for approval increased, but I was willing to wait.

Now, in the email I have from Discord, I received a message saying that there was an update and all images made by AI would have to have Generative AI in the title.

I don't think it's wrong for them to require this, it will actually be more transparent for the customer.

However, when I sent my images without this information I did so because I was following the example of the illustrations that they had already approved.

They do not give the option to change during the review period. So, for the content not to be rejected, I will have to delete everything, to correct and wait another 3 months...

I've tried to contact them, but they don't respond.

I think, you have misunderstood the requirement. It is no longer necessary to add “Generative AI” to the title and keywords. https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock-contributors-discussions/update-to-metadata-requirements-for-ge...

No, that's not true. All contributors are treated equally. You experience just a lower upload limit as you are still in your learning phase. Instead of earning 3000 refusals on your first submission, Adobe decided to limit new contributors to a certain number of submissions, before they need to pause. That limit will grow as you evolve and contribute more and more assets that generate sales.

Hello,

The uploaded asset is moderated, the person who uploaded the asset isn't. If one has been at this a long time, well they know the ropes. If one is new to Adobe Stock, well one must then learn the ropes!

Your post reveals several misunderstandings about the process of getting Adobe Stock assets approved:

- The stated 4 week review time is not a "deadline", and nowhere on the Adobe Stock Help pages is there any reference to it being a deadline. It's an estimate. Review times are volatile, entirely dependent on the number of assets already in the queue and the number of Moderators assigned to the AI queue.

- I'm not sure what email from Discord you're referring to. I've never received an email from Discord. The requirement to include "Generative AI"in titles and Keywords was dropped many months ago, and revised requirements are in the stock Help pages.

- Adobe does not evaluate the work of professionals first. We all experience varying review times, which are sometimes quite lengthy, on our submissions. I have been a Contributor for 7 years, and my review time for photos increased from 2 days to nearly 4 weeks.

 

Rather than relying on social media to track changes in AI requirements, you should check in regularly to the Adobe Stock Blog, this forum, and the Adobe Stock Discord server to stay informed about changes in guidelines.

The phrase in the red box in Portuguese means:
Thank you for your submission. The files will be analyzed as quickly as possible, but moderation has up to 4 weeks to do so.

As I said, I'm not a professional, so I looked for different ways to inform myself and learn. After all, there is also good information on social media like the Adobe community.
