What is the problem? Could you be more specific?Did you up load pictures? Got they accepted? And you have no sales yet?

You will have to wait...and 30 or so isn't a lot of photos...(perhaps it's a bit like fishing...)

Do not expect to get rich fast with this... Your 30 pictures are a small droplet in the pool.

I remember when I first started three years ago. I put less than 30 images onto a rival site that has a much much bigger pool of images. I sold within a week and have sold regularly there since.

Adobe Stock is not like that. With 30 (excellent) images, you might expect a sale every few months here.

... if you're lucky.

I too sold my first pictures practically immediately. An I have practically the same images on a different platform. The difference is only that some got accepted here and not there and vice versa.

I saw more sales here at the beginning, I have more regular sales on the competitors platform. But for the moment it's just for fun, because neither sales are substantial. But that has to do with my images subject, as I do not create images specifically for stock, which you should do, if you want get a small living (paying off one or the other camera add on) out of it.

Also review the keywords on the items you've already submitted to be sure they thoroughly describe the image. I found that the keywords on some of my early submissions were a bit anemic, so have been reviewing/updating them as I have time.

JC926​ Thanks for mentioning "updating" the keywords for your submissions.  I've been wondering how I can edit/update keywords for images once they've been accepted (I'm always thinking of good/better tags after the fact).  Can you please explain how to do this?

Hi, I found I could delete my offerings when in the review. Then I resubmit them as a new one and change the tags and even title. Best wishes. JH

Go to your portfolio page, click on the image you want to change and hover over the category you want to change - keywords - and a small pencil icon will show, click on that and you can edit. Once you have done that, click save and you're done.

Click on the image in your Portfolio. Then an expanded window with info relating to that image opens up and you can click on the keywords section to edit.

Hi Lori,

Welcome to Adobe Stock! I took a look at your portfolio and your initial uploads look fantastic! You are definitely on the right track. As others have indicated in this forum, you will need to increase the overall volume of your portfolio. In fact, if you can get 300 files online this year you will qualify for a free year of Creative Cloud Photography plan.

One item of note, I took a look at your yoga photo (which you should upload more from the series if you have them) and your keywords were thorough and accurate. One important item of note however is that the Adobe Stock search engine puts an emphasis on the first 7 keywords. In other words, it is critically important you list the most important/relevant keywords in the first 7.

I wish you the best of luck!

Mat Hayward
