Thank's Mat!

I like very much the "new FT & Adobe"  :)

Yesterday I had an EL sale  :D

What about the mail notifications problem ? It will be solved ?

Thank's again!

Excellent, thanks Matt.

Can the same change be made at Fotolia, automatically setting the EL's to maximum instead of minimum?

Also, any chance of getting the ability to sort within your own portfolio, and then edit the file from search as I mentioned a few times in the other thread?

Thanks Matt,

I have been very impressed with Adobe and their help in getting my video online there! Love the site and treatment of the artist!

Make the thumbs on the sales page clickable to the actual video, or at least, make them have hover previews.

 I would be very glad if the default setting in My Statistics is "How many credits have I earned?" instead of "How many of my files have been viewed?"!

Speaking of thumbnails, is there any way to change the thumbnail for a videoclip?

Really like the Adobe site layout and I like that you can see the number of views and sales on each photo, but it would be great to see how much you've actually earned on each photo too, since earnings per sale is variable. Like many here, I like to track shoots and figure out what is working so I can adjust my uploads accordingly. The addition of that most useful of statistics, right on the photographer facing portfolio page would be great.

+1 Fairplay's suggestion that default setting in My Statistics is "How many credits have I earned?" instead of "How many of my files have been viewed?"

Like that ELs are automatically set to the maximum amount.

Again, fun to meet you in person at PhotoPlusExpo. Really appreciate your efforts to keep us informed here. With iStock's latest move, it's nice to feel one of the big guys is listening to their contributors.

I think I asked this already recently, does anybody observe a bug whereby when you select several images which have identical metadata (keywords, titles, etc.), you cannot prioritize (drag) keywords anymore, i.e. no keywords for batch-selected images appear in the new submission tool? I'm pretty sure this was possible shortly after the launch of the new tools, but not anymore. It's very annoying as I have to do it the old way, one by one, which is really a waste of time. Is it only my issue (tried in various browsers) or anybody else can confirm this?

Thanks for checking this out!

I might try that. I have been having a really difficult time with my yahoo email (I have had that email address for YEARS now) ever since they were hacked a couple of months ago.

Dear Mat Hayward,

(This is a copy of my message from "Adobe Stock Contributor Site now live!", because that thread was closed, but no answer received.)

Currently 1 EUR = 0.9 GBP. But when I convert my credits at Fotolia (Adobe Stock) the rate is 0.75. It means: I earn 100 credits = 100 EUR and should get 90 GBP via Paypal, but Fotolia (Adobe Stock) sends me 75 GBP only.

This way all the UK contributors lose 15 GBP from every 100 credits (90 GBP) earned. It is a hidden 17% fee.

Why so? When are you going to fix the rate? Will you update it weekly to reflect the actual rate?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

How about just starting a new thread for this issue? It is a major concern.  Though I think the best solution is for all payments to be in dollars and let your bank or payment provider do the calculations, I think it makes sense to discuss it in its own thread.

Justanotherphotographer, I can create a new thread. Or the moderator can do that and move the text to that thread. (The text is here now, because I am sure Mat Hayward reads this thread, but I am not sure he reads all other threads.)

And yes, I'd prefer my bank or Paypal to do the calculations.

At Adobe Stock and Fotolia we are selling content from contributors around the world to a global community of buyers. The royalties earned are based on the purchase price of an image in the local currency. We are keeping an eye on currency fluctuations, and if there is a major and sustained trend in currency conversion rates we take action to adjust. At this time we dont have plans to adjust the GBP conversion.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

I disagree, I think the best solution would be for all payments in Euros....after all, Fotolia is European agency.

Thank you for your answer. Please clarify what does "major and sustained" mean with some specific figures. (Both the words "major" and "sustained" are countable and become useless without digits.)

Is "major" equal to 20%? Or maybe 25%? Is "sustained" equal to 3 months? Or maybe 6 months?

Based on those figures we can make decisions like: "Convert credits and withdraw now.", "Do not convert for 3 months till Adobe fixes the exchange rate" etc.

Changing from my yahoo email to my gmail worked...getting notifications again. I dont know what yahoo did, but they have messed up. I will likely start phasing that email account out. I have already changed my paypal account, dont want to have issues getting my payments. One might not have anything to do with the other, but i am not taking any chances.
