Hi, I quit Fotolia years ago but when I get into Adobe with my Adobe password I have to sign up for a testversion of Adobe sign which ultimately costs $120 a year. Is this correct? The link to this test version doesn't work by the way. What do I do?
Thanks,

Where do you "get into Adobe"?
Do you want to contribute to Adobe stock? The support files say that:

Quote
Step 1:
Create an account
Submit content on Fotolia.com. And coming soon, submit directly on Adobe Stock or through Lightroom CC and Bridge CC.
Still you could try to sign in here but the upload links redirect to FT (for now):

https://contributor.stock.adobe.com or https://stock.adobe.com/contributor


Hi, I got in Thursday with my adobe passwords etc and I uploaded about 40images. I sold one yesterday. What I don't understand is the price structure. I see that images are for sale for 9.99 or 59.99 and I earned 0.60 with my sale. Can  anyone explain what happened?
Thanks

As I know, sales come from both sites and are mirrored on both sites. There is no way for us to know what price structure they were sold with and on which site.

Thanks. I guess it must have been fotolia. The earnings at Fotolia turned out so bad after a while that I quit after about 6 years. This is slightly better as it used to. No views on my other images though. It could also be an encouragement sale like 'Go on, post more'. We'll see how it turns out.

Small sympathetic attention:
When keywording, the program detects alphabetical order and report it
(straight out of Lightroom for example).

I did the stupidity in my first loads.
Now that we can change ...

@click_click Lots of good questions here, thanks for writing. I'll do my best to answer them all for you.


Is it fair to ask WHY there need to be two separate sites to handle ONE account?

You don't need to use the portal. It is a new tool that has been created in an effort to speed up the workflow of contributors but it is not mandatory for you to use. You can continue to use the Fotolia upload process as normal. Your content will still be available through Adobe Stock even if you never visit the Adobe Stock Contributor Portal.

I haven't done the activation on Adobe yet but I have seen here that apparently there is a limitation on Adobe when it comes to Extended License pricing...? Am I correct that if I submit on Adobe that I can only set the EL to 80 credits max, while on Fotolia I can set it to 100?

That is correct. Extended license prices are fixed at $79.99 on Adobe Stock for all contributors except for the Premium collection. The commission rate for all is 33% on these sales. At Fotolia if you are ranked silver or higher you can set your Extended license prices between 30 credits and 100 credits. Your commission is determined by your rank.


First, why is it different?

Are you referring to the Extended License prices? If so, I wasn't involved in those discussions so I can't be sure. I can see why it would be beneficial from a customers perspective to have a more consistent price structure across the system on content.

Secondly, is this the beginning of a planned transition to ONE Adobe account while Fotolia will be shut down in a year or two? Would that mean that this automatically will lead to a new EL pricing?

Not to my knowledge. Fotolia is still the #1 agency in Europe providing great service to a large customer base. Both sites are running independently of each other so as a contributor you get the advantages of both agencies.

Again, why two sites to handle one account? It just don't get it. Many questions.

See my answer above.

Also the wording to switch to Adobe ("(which we would highly recommend you to do so!)") makes me feel icky.


I think the quote you are referencing was regarding the sync process when you first sign in to the contributor portal. If you don't sync your Adobe ID to your Fotolia account the system will create a new account for you and you will be starting fresh at Adobe Stock. Your stats and rank will not carry over. Since you can only sync on the first visit I felt it was important to emphasize the importance.

Thanks again for the questions,

Mat Hayward
Thanks Mat for taking the time to answer my questions.

Regarding my question regarding the different EL prices on Fotolia and Adobe.
As you have mentioned from a buyer's point of view it would make more sense to be consistent as it is ONE collection which is accessible on two completely different domain names. I would expect Adobe to be quite aware of such a discrepancy - hence the follow up question if this is an indication that eventually one site (I would assume Fotolia) would be shut down just so that the one collection can only be accessed through Adobe at one price point without any confusion.

I don't want to see Fotolia go away, I just don't get the one collection,  two sites (and price points) decision.

Just my two cents.

Hi Mat,

Great stuff!

I have two suggestions:
- automatic payout at the end of the month
- some kind of discount for Creative Cloud subscription for contributors ;-)

Nice to see an actual person from Adobe/Fotolia here.

I synced my account yesterday and all went smoothly.

However, I notice that today I'm getting 20c commission on some sales? What happened? I thought there was a minimum guarantee applicable 'to make sure contributors are always fairly compensated, whatever the price is' (she quotes with tongue firmly planted in cheek).

Did something change with the Adobe sign up?

EDIT:

Oh, I just checked on my Fotolia page, and it appears I was paid the correct amount. You may wish to get your Adobe email amended, as that is showing a lower amount.

Apologies, Mat - I think this is my error, and the 20c is actually 0.20. A credit of 27c is actually 0.20 when converted at your rate of 0.75 per credit. Somehow it looks terribly low to see the rate in GBP!

Hey Matt,

I can't seem to find a way to sort my portfolio on Adobe Stock. Eg: I want to find a specific file in my thousands of online files, I need to go through each page at the moment - correct?

I think we really need the ability to search within a portfolio by keyword, id number etc, and then be able to link from the search results to an image asset page where we can edit it if we need to.

I think for me this is the number 1 thing I would like to see at the moment.

Cheers.

@Microstock Man, you can search from within your portfolio at Adobe Stock. The search needs to be through Adobe Stock however and not the portal. The way to do this is to click the "Contributor Account" link at the top then click "See my public profile" in the upper right corner.

From there, any searches you conduct will only produce results from your portfolio.

-Mat

Hey Matt,

Thanks for answering everybody's posts.

However, I think you missed a key part of my post. You are indeed correct that from Adobe Stock you can search a users portfolio (which I had already done before making my post).

However, unless I am missing something, from viewing the user's portfolio in this way there is no way to then edit a file's details. I can license my own image etc etc, but can't edit it.

Thats what I am wanting - a way to search my portfolio for a specific file AND then edit that file.

If that exists already please tell me how to do it. If it doesn't exist, I think its a pretty vital feature that is missing.

Thanks Matt.

Yes you can from your portfolio.

Title and Keywords can be edited - just click on the field and the edit function becomes active.

Photobomb - can you explain more? So you're saying after SEARCHING FOR A PARTICULAR FILE, which Matt says has to be done through the customer facing portal, that I can edit it? I have just tried and clicked everywhere and still can't see a way to edit my files details?

I get that I can can scroll through endless pages in my account page, but I need to be able to SEARCH for a file first, then edit it. Thats what I am missing.

You are correct that you can only edit through your account page. You can't search your portfolio, you'd have to scroll through them to get to the image you need to edit. Sorry if it was confusing.

I have a proposal for a new search "tab". Right now there are: Newest, Price, Popularity, Relevance, Downloads, Undiscovered. I think it would be good if there was also "Random" tab, I think lots of files would have a better chance to be found with this option....

I am trying to sync, but the page just refreshes and comes up again blank.
I already have an adobe cc account, but it doesn't seem to accept my fotolia login - also, to be sure - I changed my password on fotolia, didn't have success with that either.

And, btw, the login is pretty much insecure: the browser address shows the username and password unprotected when submitting: https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/nl/onboarding/sync-fotolia-2?username=******&password=***** (the * are your current fotolia username and password)

Edit: I always use google chrome on my mac, just tried with safari, now everything went ok and I am synced, so maybe this can help if you run into problems like I did.

Thanks for the detailed feedback. That's very helpful. I shared your comments with the team. It sounds like that link you referenced is not ours. The issue appears to be associated with a password auto-fill plugin you may have installed in Chrome. I'm glad that switching browsers resulted in success for you.

I tried to sign in to the Adobe contributor site to sync with Fotolia (after changing my password) and  I get the following error message:

Access Denied
You are not eligible to use this product or service due to the Service Eligibility Requirements. Learn more

I clicked 'learn more' but the linked page reverts to the 'access denied' page after about 4 seconds!

Any help appreciated.

Hi,

Is it necessary to connect my Fotolia account with Adobe stock? Is possible to increase sales on Fotolia? Are my pictures after upload to Fotolia automatically also on Adobe stock for sale, even though I have not both accounts linked with each other ?

Hello @hamik,

No, it is not necessary to link accounts. If you had an existing Fotolia account prior to the launch of the portal you can continue to manage your account as normal through Fotolia. All of your approved content is mirrored at an Adobe Stock portfolio as well.

Can I upload only to Adobe and have it not appear on Fotolia?
Or if I delete a file from Fotolia, does it automatically deletes from Fotolia?

I'm trying to understand how much one site mirrors another.

For instance, if I just want to upload files to Adobe, and not Fotolia, is that possible?

Has there been a major change in keywording on the Adobe Stock site?
 
I have some images which a buyer is only likely to be interested in because of the geographical location.  Taking one town name (non-English) and searching on Fotolia returns 10 images with four of mine first.  Searching with the same town name on Adobe Stock returns no images though they are accessible on that site via other keywords.

Question about the possibility to edit keywords on Adobe site - I added new keywords to one of the images on Adobe, but when I check this file on Fotolia the keywords are not updated.
Does this tool only apply to the search engine of Adobe then?
