Over a decade ago I spent a couple of days making some images and putting them on Dreamstime and Fotolia. I never kept up with it but would sell a few images here and there and it was kinda cool to log in every 12 months or so and see $50 waiting for me. This year one of my files has become more popular and I'm selling it anywhere from 1-5 times per day now. It's on the first page of searches when sorted by relevance on Adobe Stock, and on the first page when sorted by downloads on Fotolia.

My question is: If I make this file exclusive via Fotolia's website, will it disappear from Adobe?

I see that Adobe doesn't allow exclusivity. I'm not sure which site is garnering the most hits. I'd love to maximize my profits on this file, remove it from Dreamstime where it's not doing much, and perhaps drive sales towards my newfound interest in creating additional images. I know Adobe wasn't around when I created this image so I was sort of surprised when I saw it on Adobe Stock one day. Then I read about the acquisition and synced my Adobe and Fotolia accounts (really not even sure what that did for me).

Thank you for your time!

Fotolia exclusive content is available at Adobe Stock.
