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.

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.
