Looking to get in touch with artist to see if they have full North and South America detail maps from which several images are avail in Stock...
No, getting intouch with artists is not possible.
Well that's just unfortunate and not sure why Adobe interferes with this effort.
Because they want to stay in the middle.
Well then if in the middle there should still be a way to get in touch through Adobe - maybe that would be a good idea for both artists and end-users to connect. For example... I found several images from artist, basically crops of something larger, but not full image is avail. Would be very helpful to get that file or contact the artist to present that file. They way Adobe Stock works now is counter-productive, as are several other issues with Stock that exist and need updating for better workflow for us whom pay for subscription.
Contributors upload anything they have. If it is not there, either they don't have it or it's unsuitable for Adobe stock. For on the demand work you have to look somewhere else, no stock company does that.
You are wrong. iStock will do this. If there is an image or artist that I need help with they will pass on my request. And yes, many times artists don't put all their artwork up, not because it's not suitable, but because they just haven't. Adobe Stock needs to start doing a better job for us.
I used iStock, I never saw that option.
I have and if you do have iStock then you will see if you contact support through chat they will assist. Unlike Adobe.
