Hi, sorry for my bad english but i will ask something about adobestock image order system.

As you know dpc was closed and migrated to Adobe Stock.Did you notice that Fotolia and Adobe stock not same searching algorthm.

For instance, one of my images at first page on Fotolia but same image at 7. 8. page on Adobe Stock.My opinion is this is unfair,ridiculous and sales are fallen.If you encounter same situation Please mail them.

Thank you.

What search option are you talking about? Search on "New" is the same, search on "Relevant" is different and that is understandable. We don't know what criteria goes in Relevant; different sites, different searches, different views and downloads. I don't think it has anything to do with search algorithm and if so....their sites, their rules, fair or not.

Yes you're right about "their sites, their rules" but same content,same contrubitors and also sales coming fotolia statistics.Dpc was mirror of fotolia.They must consider contrubitors.My lost  300 usd each month and this is the main reason.

same content,same contrubitors and also sales coming fotolia statistics but not the same buyers, not the same view count and not the same downloads even when the search engine works the same way, IMO.

I can understand your anger for those $300 but sales are down for many contributors lately ( myself included), some say it's because of closing DPC.

Yeah, DPC must have accounted for quite a lot of sales, down about $250 a month since it closed on the 17th April. I don't think they've had as many DPC users migrating over to Adobe as they'd have liked. When googling it you can see discussions regarding alternatives (non Adobe ones). Most are looking for cheaper and even free images. Sad really as Adobe isn't badly priced at all. At the end of the day, they could suffer as well if their clients start to question some of the sub standard imagery they're using from those free / bargain basement outfits.
