Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Publish directly to Adobe Stock, part of Photoshop CC 2017 for Photographers: New Features.
- [Instructor] There are a number of different ways that you can try to convert your passion for photography into profit, and one of those is to sell your images as stock photography. Well, there's a new feature inside of Adobe Bridge which can help you out with that process, and that's what I want to highlight here. You can see I'm inside of Adobe Bridge. And what we need to do is to select an image, and then next, we're going to open up a brand new panel, which is called the Publish panel. Now when you first go to the Publish panel, it will ask you to sign in or to sign up.
I've already done that. You can see there's a little cloud with a green checkmark. That's telling me, hey Chris, you're already signed up, you're good to go. Once you've done that, you go to your images. Simply select the file, and then drag and drop it over the Adobe Stock area, and let go. Now when you do that, it will tell you, hey, I'm uploading this image, and it will give you some progress with that file. Now, because this file isn't gigantic, it's going to go a little bit more quickly. Yet what about with those full-resolution files, those really big files like this one here? Those raw images? Well, this image, I processed and finished in Camera Raw.
Let me give you a little bit of a preview of it. It's a photograph of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy. Well, I want to sell this image, or try to sell this image as stock. So again, with raw files, you can actually drag and drop those there. Now, it's going to give you a message which says, hey, the raw, the files you've selected to upload contain raw images. The raw's going to be converted to JPEG for upload. Do you want to do that? Heck, yeah. So go ahead and click yes. And it will go through the process of generating a JPEG file from the raw file, and then it will upload that image for you.
Now once you've gone through this process, in order to visit Adobe Stock, there's a link right here in the panel. I'll click on that link, and what this will do is open up the web browser. And of course you have to be logged in in order to be able to see this. What I'm going to do is go to my uploaded files here. And that's going to then show me, in this case, the files which I've uploaded. You can see these files here. Now, in order to finish this off, what we need to do really is to go through the rest of the process. So we select the image, as you can see right here.
You need to give a determination of what this is, illustration or photograph. Add a title. Add some keywords. And basically, you just walk through these various dialogs, in order to be able to submit the photographs. Now once you've submitted the files, which I did with a couple others right before I did this movie, it will show you that these files are in review. Here's one image from Florence as well, and it shows the keywords, the category, etc. And then we have another image over here as well, which I can select and you can see that there.
Now it will then either show you if that image is accepted or rejected, and then, of course, ideally if it's accepted, you can start to see some sales being made. So really, it's all about, you know, connecting your account, of course. You have to log in and fill out a little bit of paperwork. But then once you're back to Adobe Bridge, and you have an image, of many different file formats, it's a matter of simply dragging and dropping, and that will then send those over to Adobe Stock so that you can start to experiment with possibly selling your photographs in that way.
The November 2016 release is just the first of many updates for Photoshop CC 2017. Chris will update the course as soon as new features are released. Check back often for new tutorials.
