I don't frequent Forums, but want to give credit where credit is due.
I was skeptic for a long time about AS. QA that didn't make sense (still doesn't on occasion), clunky contributor UI (getting better though), etc etc. But I am getting steady increase of customer downloads; December is shaping to be 1st month ever that AS will beat SS for me -- and my AS port is about 1/2 of SS port (editorials). Also, in times when mid-tier agencies are slashing contributor % from 50% to 40%, AS has actually increased minimum contributor payout. Someone on business side has studied industry long and hard and is making the right moves.
So way to go Adobe. I am becoming a convert. Hope you can include Editorial images soon too. And don't ever lower QA criteria -- exposure, grain, chromatic aberration, etc etc. Check them all, in detail. That is elevates you you from micro-swamp other agencies are sinking in.
