The increase is welcome, thanks. BUT, I am Sapphire and I am getting the same royalty as Gold. Shouldn't higher rank mean a higher royalty?

Not if you look at the new as, two levels Silver and below 9999, or Gold and above 10,000 anybody who can get 1000 downloads is in the 1st level. Everybody above 10,000 is the same now.

For the life of me I can't find the commission rates for exclusive contributors for credit sales on the fotolia site. What am I missing?

Thanks. Just hope that's still valid. The new commission table on adobe stock doesn't mention exclusivity at all...

Adobe don't do exclusivity and you can't make a new account on Fotolia so in effect it's a relic of the past.

I know. But on the page that was linked in the notification email, they have a table specifically about credit sales on fotolia, stating only: "Royalty rates are based on contributors ranks. The higher the rank, the higher the contributor's percentage." Nothing about exclusivity.

That's just the good news page, we havn't got the bad news page yet, except maybe by omission.

My point exactly. Sort of the kind of thing you would hope to be informed about explicitly and officially. If the assumption's right, that is, of course.

Nothing has changed regarding exclusive contributor commission rates based on Fotolia credit based sales. This change only impacts the minimum commission amount on subscription sales.

Thanks,

Thanks Adobe.

The only thing missing is really editorial use only submission possibility.

I mean we have the possibility to submit to Adobe directly from Adobe Bridge or Lightroom. Many photographers that use lightroom or photoshop are editorial shooters. It is pitty that it cant be submitted to Adobe Stock.

Next to this almost all other agencies including the small ones have the editorial use only option.

Please Adobe add this future. I am sure a lot of photographers are waiting for this. Millions of photos available on other agencies missing in Adobe ;).

Thanks.

Why so keen to sell for so very little on Adobe when you can (and I know that you do) sell editorials for more on e.g. Alamy, and all micros have done is take editorial sales away from, and force prices down on, there? If the buyers want pics which are not on the micros, they might consider paying a fair price elsewhere.

I cant do it by my own. And anyway.... did you took a look at the large editorial offer only on SS. It is to late. Next to that A seems really to be UK related. Look at their "what to shoot" blogs. UK UK UK UK.

Anyway editorials are doing in my case much better on SS then Alamy. I look at the end amount regardless the price per image.

Anyway this thread is about Adobe. And all other micros have already editorial for long time. I would love to see editorials on Adobe as many others do.

But lets not discuss here if it is better to submit to Alamy or micro. This topic is all about Adobe and if someone is wishing Editorial here he will have a own reason.

I think that horse has bolted but its a fair point..unless Adobe going for editorial increases the overall demand its just moving the deckchairs....

Most of my editorials sold on Alamy are on average 5$ gross. And most are also distributor sales, so I get 30% of 5$. That's not so much more than on, for example SS. I sell more editorials on SS than on alamy, so in the end, I get more from SS.

wonder if Shutter will jump in with a fat pay raise now  8)

If AS starts taking editorial, I'll have no use for any other agencies except SS and AS.


I am waiting for this too. Right now exclusive in Photo with Getty and non exclusive with video (did not make the same mistake with video I did with photography long ago). If Adobe takes editorial someday I might seriously say goodbye to the crown and even keep contributing to Istock/Getty whicjh I already don't do in video because of the low royalties. Great move Adobe :-)
