If I hit "snyc my account" and take me to ASC page, with all my photos, LIFETIME EARNINGS, AVAILABLE EARNINGS, My Statistics grapf ect., same like on FL_page,
I think, that it is it...I done 

Yes or No


What about indexing?

However, the ASC site is much less useful than the FL contributor page _ for now I hope...

Yes. It sounds like you have successfully synced.

Using the Adobe Stock Contributor portal, we can edit keywords and titles on approved content.

But it is not easy to reach a specific file for editing it, because there is no search tool.

It will be very helpful for the contributors to have a search tool which will work with the Adobe Stock file ID, so please include this feature in the next website update

George, I totally agree. This request has been made to the development team and I promise you I bring it up often to keep it top of mind.

Thanks for ,

I have synced and cant find my pictures, no portfolio, nothing?  I did sync some time back when they first merged!

Funny according to Adobe now I have zero images, zero sales and zero uploads and zero portfolio. Somethings gone wrong I recon!

You can only sync one time (the first time) so if you had already done so then what you just did was create a new account with a different Adobe ID. Please send a ticket to support and we can delete that account for you.

Thanks Matt!

The keywording Adobe tool needs to include copy and paste of blocks of keywords (Preferably in a box field). Right now it is one by one which is slow and painful. Fotolia has this before upload and this needs to be implemented before and after upload to streamline contributor file preparation and maintenance.  Thank you!

I hope there's going to be some serious development of the Adobe stock site. At the moment I think the Fotolia site is far superior to the very simplistic Adobe site. Fotolia has a lot of features I like a lot, whereas Adobe stock is boring to use and has almost no useful features.

This feature is in place already. When looking at the individual keyword boxes look just above the top box and click the link that says "paste keywords." That opens the main keyword box you are looking for.

We are working hard to continue developing the Adobe Stock Contributor Portal. I expect to continue to see many new and exciting features in the months to come.

Other than view statistics and the weekly position, what specific feature are you referencing that is available at Fotolia and not Adobe Stock?

I'm getting a 'sync your account now' banner across the top of my Fotolia page with information and a link to 'sync my account'. I'm pretty sure I did this some time back, and can login on the Adobe stock page, so I guess I can ignore this?

Is this just coming up on everyone's page or does it mean that something isn't actually linked?

I echo the others with regard to the interface and weekly position. The weekly rank gives something to focus on and improve, which is great in an industry that often leaves you feeling demotivated.

Yes, I believe the Fotolia message is universal for all accounts. If you have already synced, you can disregard.

We will be adding the overall/weekly position stat to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal as soon as possible.

-Mat

Thanks for confirming, Mat

Hi Matt,

I use my Fotolia account to occasionally purchase licenses as well for projects (web developer). Can you tell us if our purchased license history will show in Adobe? Currently it does not.

As well, I can license content through my Fotolia account without buying a monthly plan and just do one-off purchases using my earnings balance. Will this be included in the future at Adobe or will I have to open a separate buyer account?

@farbled, I am not sure about your first question. I'm asking the team and will get back to you asap.

Regarding purchasing content with your commissions via Adobe Stock, no that is not possible at this time. You will need to create a customer account through stock.adobe.com.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Mat, some suggestions for improving the Adobe Stock Contributor portal:

- for displaying my own portfolio I would prefer a list view as on Fotolia ("My files"), showing columns for date uploaded, views, sales and total earnings per file (the latter is not available on Fotolia but would be great to have).
- On dashboard and Insights, the graph on top shows data for weeks. I would much prefer to see months instead. Possibly that could be made configurable, so that everybody can choose what they want to see. Also, exact numbers are missing on the graph for downloads and earnings per data point (could be done as a mouseover).
- While Insights allows to select any timeframe for statistics, you always need multiple clicks to get any result. Would it be possible to display some useful numbers (e.g. downloads and earnings for the current day, current week and current month) as default on the page? Or make that configurable also.
- You do support making our own collections, but they are lacking some basic functionality, like displaying statistics (number of downloads and total earnings per collection). Also, adding files to collections doesn't really work well without a search function within the list of own files.

While some of these are not available on Fotolia, it would be great to see them implemented.

Thanks!

The most important thing from fotolia website was the search base on downloads and newest, please make that a priority before cut fotolia any of its capabilities, these are very helpful for contributors and buyers, if necessary please extend fotolia doom day, till your hi-tech team has those features on AS.
i believe all contributors and buyers will agree with me.
Regards.

Apparently, I've been merged since last year and making sales - but when I signed in today - ALL of my files were rejected in Adobe. WTH?

If your files are online at Fotolia they are online at Adobe Stock. You may have multiple accounts. Send a ticket to support and we'll take a look for you.

Thanks for  Joe. You can already search by date or downloads in the Portfolio section of your Contributor Portal Dashboard. The filter is on the far right side of the dashboard page.

Hello everyone,

I have important news to share with you. One year from today on November 5, 2019 Fotolia will close.

What does this mean for you? If you have already synced your Fotolia account with Adobe Stock then you are all set. No additional action is required on your part. If you have not synced your Fotolia account with the Adobe Stock Contributor portal, now is the time to do so. Go to https://contributor.stock.adobe.com and create or sign in with your Adobe ID. You will be asked if you are a Fotolia contributor and then prompted to sync your account.

Beginning February 5 contributors will not be able to submit new content through Fotolia. All new uploads must happen via Adobe Stock starting on that date. You will however still be able to access Fotolia with your login credentials to view your sales history, the tax center and to submit payment requests should you prefer to do so up until November 5. After that, there will be no access to Fotolia in any capacity. Your content will still be online at Fotolia up until November 5 so customers can continue to purchase licenses to use your work through Fotolia. As always, any commissions earned through Fotolia sales will be paid immediately into your Adobe Stock Contributor account.

You will find additional information including how to sync your account here: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/contributor-fotolia.html

There are many advantages to using the Adobe Stock Contributor portal. You can edit keywords and titles on approved content. Free access to Adobe Portfolio where you can share custom collections created in the Adobe Stock Contributor portal along with your non-stock work, Adobe sensei generated auto keywords, auto title and auto categories to streamline your indexing process, contributors outside the US paid in USD can receive payments through Payoneer, top 10 contributors of the week displayed to show you what type of content is in demand from customers in real time, Creative Cloud members can upload to Adobe Stock through Lightroom Classic, Adobe Bridge and Premiere Pro CC. There are many new and exciting features being developed. Migrating everyone to one site will allow us to focus more on Adobe Stock development to provide these new features faster than ever.

Im sure you have many questions. I will be checking the forum frequently and will do my best to answer them in as timely a manner as possible.

Kind regards,

Mat Hayward

Thanks Mat, I'm wondering what this means as a Fotolia Subscriber as well. I've got a herd of credits chilling in there.

Sooooo .... who's contributed right from LR before? Is there a tutorial somewhere? That might motivate me to actually get back into the game.
