Thanks Mat

This didn't work for me - first, there aren't enough characters in the keyword box and so it truncates the list of keywords, and then pressing Tab only moved the cursor to the next keyword box. It didn't distribute them.

Steve

Hi Steve,

Are you separating the keywords with a comma? I'm looking into the character quantity issue you mentioned.

Hi Mat

It was a semi colon because the system I used to sort the keywords stored them like that. As you know, I can't do that in Lightroom. The semi colon works in the Fotolia contributor page so I've done it that way.

I didn't realize the semi-colon doesn't work in the contributor portal. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I have reported this and I expect it will be addressed by the engineers within the next few weeks.

I will get back to you soon regarding the character limit in the keyword box. Thanks for the helpful feedback.

It's nice to see an agency looking for ways to find win-win solutions in the market place.   I will have to build up my portfolio on FT!

This has been fixed Steve. You can now enter all fifty keywords into the top box (separated by commas not semi-colons) and hit tab to distribute them all. I just tested it and it worked well. Let me know if you have any issues.

@MatHayward:

Mat,

2 months ago (on October 28th) you said:

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.


The GBP/USD rate dropped down 6 months ago (on June 26th, the proof: http://finance.yahoo.com/quote/GBPUSD=X?p=GBPUSD=X ). It is obvious that GBP/USD and EUR/GBP rate is not going to return back to its "before Brexit" state. This trend is definitely sustained.

Please tell us when is Adobe going to fix the rate on Fotolia? It is still "1 credit = 0.75" now and must be corrected.

Thanks.

They have not fixed it when euro/dollar was 1.35 - 1.4.
FT didn't care the majority of contributors was underpaid by 35%-40%, because they liked to pocket that difference. They are still pocketing, today, 4-5% taken out of US contributors'  FT  paycheck.

Do you think they will care about a minority of UK contributors and make the adjustment against their own interest?

The good news is that AS plan to be more aggressive on the US market, forced them to migrate to $ based prices AND royalties, in order to avoid overpaying EU contributors for their growing US sales.

I guess US and UK contributors can only wish for the on-going FT to AS transition to accelerate, to get something closer to fair pay.

Any change to your metadata ingesting system? Your manual cut and paste interface in Fotolia cuts deep into our profits, please change to be more like VB or P5.

Ok. I'm confused.
I thought Adobe stock was Fotolia - just rebranded.
Is it?
Do you need to 'join' Adobe Stock? Or does FT stuff go to AS?
Sorry if this is a really gormless question.
I seem to have been living in a parallel universe for the last few months.....or something.....

I would like to know approx how many buyers Adobe-stock had BEFORE joining up with FT?  many high ranked members of FT had a huge increase of sales immediately after the merger and then complained sales just completely flatlined and for no apparent reason at all.
Of course the Adobe brand name is a very solid ground but selling stock-pictures is really a totally different thing/business. At the moment I feel its all a bit shakey as if not knowing which way to go? the old Oleg/FT road with lots of "hokus-pokus" or the new Adobe road.

Just curious really since I do have many thousands of files invested with Adobe/FT.

Read this one Sarah2 http://www.microstockgroup.com/fotolia-com/adobe-stock-contributor-site-now-live!/  it's locked by the first post by Mat explains things pretty well.

Good luck, you are on both already, it's just a matter of syncing your accounts so you can edit and work the new system at AS.

So what is the metadata ingestion tool like at AS? As FT is manual and adds unnecessary labor costs to the marketplace that technology could easily fix. On AS can you mass submit like on p5 or VB?

I don't work for them and don't understand your complaint, twice now. I submit with words in the photos IPTC and the system reads them just fine. No cut and paste. Same images go to many sites, all read. I use commas or spaces to divide.

FT isn't manual, neither is AS. I don't understand your cut and paste question? Maybe somebody else knows what you are asking.

Only boxes I need to click for upload on AS system is one catagory and recognizable people, yes or no. I do pick the best top seven keywords and put them on top, using an up arrow. That's all. No cut and paste, reads everything right from the files.

Very fast and easy. Easiest of all sites I upload to.

hmm, yes a disconnect indeed. Are you talking stills? I only do video and the interface on fotolia is a manual cut and paste into html forms...there isn't even an 'import csv' to mass import data...is there something I'm missing?

There's the answer. Yes I do stills, no video. Got it now.  :)

Sorry about that seems both of us linked to the same locked thread and the forum just goes to the main page. Follow the link and look down the list for "Adobe Stock Contributor Site now live!" locked thread in blue. Read the first post from Mat that explains much of the details for us.

Wow, this looks cool. So do I need to keep uploading the same images to both Fotolia and Adobe Stock ? or is uploading to only one of them enough ?

It seems that one is enough. I found my Fotolia portfolio on Adobestock.

Cool, so uploading to fotolia as always. And the sales will be paid as per the payment schedules of both

Not sure if this has been reported, but on the Alamy side, if I click on any link on the Sales page, it returns Not Found
i.e. https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/sale/58903769
