Adobe Creative Cloud

New for Adobe Stock Contributors: Auto-Categories, Mobile Uploads from Adobe Photoshop Mix, and More.

At Adobe Stock, we strive to build tools that improve our contributors’ lives and make them easier. Last September, we introduced the Contributor Portal, a platform for content creators to upload and sell their photos, illustrations, vectors and videos to the world’s largest creative community.

Contribute from Adobe Photoshop Mix

Today we are excited to share a version of Adobe Photoshop Mix on iOS which will allow mobile photographers to upload their images directly to Adobe Stock.

Adobe Photoshop Mix is a powerful app that allows you to cut out and combine elements from different images, blend layers, and apply looks on your mobile phone or tablet – in essence, Photoshop in your pocket.

After you have finished editing your original images with the Mix app, simply select Adobe Stock from the ‘Send To’ options, and the app will push your Mix creation to the Contributor Portal. Try it out today!

When you login to the Contributor Portal, you will see that your Mix image is in the submission queue, and our Adobe Stock’s intuitive auto-keywording tool has automatically generated the first five keywords. You can choose to manually edit these keywords if you want.

Contributor Portal Feature Updates

The newest feature updates to the Contributor Portal are designed to make the upload and submission process even more efficient for our community.


Now we also have a brand new auto-categorization tool that will automate the submission process even more. Like the auto-keywording tool, the auto-categorization tool leverages the power of Adobe Sensei to analyze your image, compare it to our database of millions of assets, and mirror the category from top images that are similar to your submission. And just like the auto-keywords, you can choose to manually change the category if you want.

Once you are happy with the category and keywords, all you have to do to complete submission is give your image a title and add any necessary model or property releases.

CSV Uploads

We’re improving the video submission process with CSV uploads – attach a CSV file containing tagging information including titles and keywords, and we’ll match them to you clips.

We have many more features and integrations in the works intended to make the submission process even more efficient, and we look forward to sharing those with our contributor community soon.

Learn more about the Adobe Stock Contributor program here and find out more about our submission guidelines on our HelpX page.

    Hi Morgan–thanks for the info on the Adobe Photoshop Mix app. I just installed it and it didn’t take up a lot of space as I expect it to.

    Hello everyone,
    Thanks for this tip!

    I always encounter issues when I load video in Adobe Stock; files are edited in Final Cut Pro X (latest version) very simple editing such as color grading and trimming.
    When I load my files for some reason Adobe does not accept the files and I get a rejection message.

    Anyone keen to show a step by step process + screenshots in the next tutorial?
    That would be great and appreciated.

    Many thanks.
    Mauro Matalone
