My Adobe Stock account consists of assets from multiple collections... is there a way I can download my own library so that I don't have to sort all of the assets on my hard drive?

To see your public profile click on "Contributor account" on the black menu bar, then the "See my public profile" link.

It is prudent however to keep your own soft copies of assets you upload on some form of storage device of your own.

I hope this was helpful

Don't understand why, but lesson learned... it's been a crazy couple of months switching computers and organizing storage devices.

Thank you for answering!

Hi lunerimaging,

If you still have your old computer, or hard drive, There are devices available on the market that are able to read the hard drive so that you can keep it as a storage, or transfer your files to another device. I work along with techs with the device, so whenever I change computers my old files are transferred. Otherwise you'd need to get large storage devices and backup every time you are done creating a file (recommended), or make use of cloud backup storage.

I believe the reason for not downloading your own assets is because when an asset is downloaded it moves to the top of the search engine. Downloading your own asset would prove a disadvantage for contributors who don't, and possibly move images to the top that would not normally take that slot. The idea is for customers to choose from the best images, also the system might be set so that each download automatically generates payout.

Best wishes

Fist of all, your assets in the stock library are not the original files, well except probably for vector assets.

Second as Jacqueline points out, this would change unfairly your ranking.

You could imagine a system to download your own assets without changing your ranking but that would degrade stock to a very inexpensive backup system.
