Check your rank: if you "stand still" and so does your rank, it means "everybody" else is "standing still" as well.

Better than a dismal SS so far this month unusual for me. Only slightly up the rankings so no drama here.

Yes, this month FT died completely for me too. Strange as I do regularly well there. Maybe because I am still uploading at Fotolia?
SS is doing very well for me this month

Cheers!!  well in that case I have fallen of a cliff completely. My overall rank is: 408   but my weekly rank have dropped from 1400 to 3604 and thats just over the last three weeks!
Guess I am one of the chosen ones to give preference to new comers.

Seriously how can agencies possibly expect members to produce good and commercial content if they muck around like this? better off just uploading the same old sheit one keep seeing lately!

I was under the impression that the "old timers are throttled" conspiracy, intensively promoted on this forum, was only applicable to SS!
I was not aware that Adobe joined the club!
Oh well, we learn something new every day!

4 footage sales today on the other sites. (edit. make that 5, just got a nice 4k on Shutterstock that I thought would never sell at all!)

0(!) views on Fotolia. What is going on over there? I used to sell footage there but it's been a while now...

The view counter doesn't not apply to customers from Adobe.
Since more and more are moving to AD, the counter is more or less meaningless.
As far as sales, they started to go down when they announced their partnerships with P5 and Stocksy, and the editorial with I don't remember who.
Many people in FT say they changed algorithm big time, but there seems to be nobody with good sales, and my ranking is stable in spite of very bad sales in the last few weeks.
Maybe they are favoring people from the new partnerships as a welcome aboard package?

Last 2 month at FT disastrous.

Funny isnt it but it seems most problems and weird stuff comes from the two biggest ones SS and Adobe and very similar oddities. I recon when such a giant like Adobe/FT can't get it right messing with the search and so on well then it has to be something very wrong with the people over there.

SS can somehow be excused since its run by bean-counters and goggle-eyed clerks but Adobe is all creatives and there really isnt any excuse for crappy earnings etc.

I've had a bad few days at Fotlia and have sunk down the ratings so someone is doing OK ;-). Just because things are bad for ME it doesn't mean things are bad for Fotolia ....

Downloads down a few percentage points, but weekly rank has gone up. It just means that sales have slowed slightly on FT/Adobe.

It's probably related to the Summer vacation season. July is one of the slowest months of the year.

Hi, i'm new since 2 months, 150 pics on AS/FT and 13 sales total 10$ US. I think it's not bad considering that i have the same number of pics with SS : only 5 sales  total 1,25$.

I remember in the beginning when Adobe got fotolia! it was brilliant and takings were up some 200-300% and it was a WOW from many. Then something happened and that was that.

My earnings with FT peaked in 2009.  Since 2012, I have been getting less than 30% of that.  Adobe seem to of made absolutely no difference to me.

Since I applied to Adobe , FT is close to 0 this month. Far under my low earners stocks. Plus, on one of my illustrations accepted everywhere , one of their Adobe "curator" found "blur" ... lol. May be he does not know what gaussian blur means .

I never saw or experienced that "boom" that many speak of when they were bought. Fotolia has been a very low earner for me when they fell off years ago. I'm an emerald "green" rank.

So nothing unusual for me there...

Same here Emerald green rank!  yes many experienced a boom shortly after the Adobe merger. My takings went up drastically just to fall flat a couple of months later.  However as you probably remember hitting Emerald at FT was no big deal that used to mean you were shunted back all over giving prefs to lower royalty earners.

Its a bit of a mystery Adobe with its incredible brand-name totally associated with creativity ever since Thomas Knoll days! one would have thought they would do brilliantly one would have thought sales would simply come in droves?? but nothing of a kind.

However great they might be the market is about supply and demand.  Supply is outstripping demand some will cope better than others but I don't expect any agency to grow substantially in this market.

Had some boom in jan/feb but it's very dead since then, just occasional low end sale, despite doubling my portfolio since then. Not even remotely close to regular SS and IS sales.
