I'm a little confused about the concept of Adobe Stock, and have some questions. I've been on fotolia for a year now. I logged in to Adobe Stock with my Adobe ID, and it said that I had a fotolia portfolio, and that it would be linked. However, the site then prompted me to upload on that platform, and I didn't see anything else of substance on that site. What's the purpose of the Adobe Stock site for contributors? Can I just upload like normal on fotolia, or is there something else I have to do to link the two platforms? Do people with fotolia platforms make sales on Adobe Stock, and is there a way to see which ones come from which site?

The purpose of Adobe Stock is to appeal to the US market where FT is weak, while still benefiting from a shameful currency manipulation, in Europe, through the FT credit system, which considers 1 euro = 1 US$

An increase of US market share on the FT platform, would have meant overpaying European contributors for sales made in US.
After launching Adobe Stock, they can continue to underpay US contributors for sales made mainly in Europe by FT, while growing, separately, their US business.

Obviously the profits they make by underpaying US contributors are large enough to justify the expenses incurred by the coexistence of two similar platforms.

Rest assured that if the Euro falls below the US$, FT will be shutdown immediately.

Meanwhile, you will get most of your US sales from Adobe and most of your European sales from FT.

Otherwise, from an upload point of view it doesn't matter what you use.

Good info, sad as it is. 

Just to make sure I understand, whatever I upload to FT will automatically be available on AS, correct?  There's nothing more that I need to do?

Thanks!

And what do you think about US American companies selling their goods in Europe for 1$ = 1??
e.g. A Mac costing $2000 in USA will cost 2000 in Europe

Like always: "two weights and two measures", or "do as I say and not as I do"

Zero Talent is right, its to appeal to the US market and FT is very weak in the US. I would say 90% of everything bought is either Getty/IS or SS. Simple as that! very difficult. I also question the Adobe partnership, if that was the right merger??

Think about it, Adobe is a powerful brand BUT they are exclusivly known and involved in softwares, programs for the professional market NOT stock!  the Adobe-stock on its own was nothing! a complete nothing! and now they have tons of people paying monthly subs for their programs etc, etc, all over the world.

So far I havent experienced any benefits what so ever with the Adobe merger and I dont know of anybody that has either. :-\  I hope I am wrong but......
