 -I've just got an extended license sale of a file where the EL price is set to 100 credits. According to my ranking I should get 37% yet i've only got 16.5 credits. How is that possible?

Shoot me an email with your account info and I'll take a look. Extended licenses are 79.99 at Adobe Stock and the commission is 33% fyi.

Thanks, I'll do that.
I'm familiar with the 26.4 credits commission, that must be the one you talk about

I looked more into the sale and it says "subscription X"

Can you add exclusive images on Adobe?

I use FT only ( although I sync). I find Adobe too messy!

I also synced my account when AS was launched, but never used it. I'm used to Fotolia and I really like the stats there!

No, there is not an exclusivity program at Adobe Stock at this time.

Recently I hade I sale, where I got 94,05. It also says "Image sold with subscription". Maybe your sale was the same as mine and not actually an EL sale.

Hi Mat,

will an exclusive option come at a later stage? Because everyone signing up now, can only do it via Adobe.

And will there be a program to add content for Premium distribution? At the moment I have content going to Adobe premium via stocksy and eyeem. But if there was a direct upload option, I would be interested.

Any idea when editorial will come to Adobe? Especially with video it brings reliable sales.

Yes, Editorial videos  could be quite important!

Yes, editorial for both images and videos. I do not have any stats but on my biggest agency the editorial content makes up for about half of my income, or something close. On other agencies something similar happens.

Exactly, I have just started to pay more attention to editorial video, quite impressed how well it sells.

What does it mean to sync my Fotolia account with Adobe Stock?

When you go to the adobe stock website and click on the button of "sell photos", the website will ask you if you already have an account on fotolia. and if you do, it will offer you to sync the accounts by clicking on a "sync" button.

Honestly I am not sure what benefits we get from doing it but I synced anyway :)

Thanks. Looks like I am synced...I was able to log in and saw my portfolio.

Yes.
I still use Fotolia to upload and Adobe Stock to modify keywords and titles

FT for upload and stats, Adobe to edit. The dashboard on FT is a lot better than anything on Adobe, sales view is better with size and license details. Only place Adobe is better is it opens in my portfolio with big thumbnails. No sync doesn't change anything right now, but what about the future? I want everything to be in order and in sync.

Hi Matt, I didn't notice this is option until I read this thread about a week ago.

(I've not been so much following microstock in the last years). Now I found and followed instructions and had the accounts synced (I already had an Adobe account as LR&PS user). All my 612 images on Fotolia went to rejected bin instantly (no time for human review), either for 'technical issues' (e.g. File ID: 59960808) or for 'file could not be accepted' (e.g. File ID: 60793638) or even 'SIMILAR IMAGE(S) ALREADY SUBMITTED' (e.g. File ID: 50543551).

Why this happened?
Thank you in advance!

Hi Mat, when forolia started with adobe stock we were told we had to scinc the first time we logged in... I was never given the option. Just a question, can we now scinc even if its not the first time? If not may be its something to think about as I'm sure I can't be the only one avoiding using the adobe stock upload in case my images don't appear on ft as well.🙂

The reviews are done manually by humans. I checked your uploads and see that it was fast but not automatic. Looks like you submitted just over an hour after you uploaded and they were reviewed about 3 hours after you submitted.

No, not if you logged into Adobe Stock. If you didn't sync to Fotolia when you first created your Adobe Stock account then what happened is the system created a new phantom Fotolia account so your uploads will be available at Fotolia in addition to Adobe Stock. This is different from any existing Fotolia account you already had. If you have a separate Fotolia account it is extremely important you only upload to one or the other. Do not submit the same content to Fotolia and Adobe Stock separately.

Hi Mat, thank you for your reply. It still sounds odd to me that out of 612 photos accepted on Fotolia, not a single one was accepted on Adobe Stock. I still think I made some mistake in the procedure. I can not even find the way to contact support, or a forum on the website!

Are you submitting the same content separately to Adobe Stock and Fotolia? If so, that's a problem. Fotolia and Adobe Stock are one and the same. Any content that is approved via Fotolia is automatically online at Adobe Stock and vice versa. If you are submitting separately to two different accounts, that is essentially spam as you are sending the same files to both sites twice. Please contact me directly if this is the case so we can get it sorted out.

Thank you again Mat,

no, this is not the case. What happened is that I synced the AS and FT accounts only at the beginning of the month. (I had never uploaded anything on AS). All the images I had on FL were immediately rejected on AS.

There is no separation between the two sites. If it was approved at Fotolia then it is automatically online at Adobe Stock. If you tried submitting the same images again in Adobe Stock they would be rejected because you have already submitted the files.

Mat, I think what he is saying is he only synced his accounts. It sounds like something went wrong in the syncing. I dont believe he did any new uploading to either site, only syncing. I hope I am not muddying the waters, and if I am misunderstanding, I apologize.

Ok, I checked searching for a few my images in AS and found them. I'm still baffled by the fact that in the contributor panel I find them under Uploaded Files / Rejected, but the images are actually on sale.

Thank you for your support!
