How . closing of DPC could affect Fotolia sales?
1. It was announced in first videocast, when Adobe bought FT
2. Uploading and file transfers was disabled for how long? A half of the year?
3. Registration of new customers was blocked almost immediately after the deal.

It was already dead! A long time ago!

It seems rather likely that existing DPC users got personalized warnings from Adobe, about the imminent shutdown. Some might have rushed to download as much as possible, before the closure. This is probably why several contributors reported that pre-closure surge and have the feeling that their sales decreased, once the surge was over.
This is only a speculation, of course, I have no facts to prove it.

You'll be down only 400 sales? How many sales have you per month then, 5000?

I'm not selling anywhere near 5000 a month yet, should have been about 2000... I was getting days of 80+.... even a few 100+days. In terms of income I'm back on target to match pre DPC closure earnings. The net impact seems to have been the equivalent of loosing 2 months gains. Looking at my figures I guess it will be nearer 300 down (sales). While it's a reasonable chunk they'd appear to have been lower value sales and what has replaced them are higher value ones. The graphs show a dip in volume but the PPI graph went up at the same point.

As with Zero Talent, I'm still seeing a reduced level of earnings from the US but this has been made up for by an increase in earnings as a whole. While I'd prefer not to of had that minor set back, I've been very happy with the volume of sales from Fotolia and Adobe since DPC closed and look forward to it continuing :-)

Pretty good. With those numbers, you've likely cracked the top 100, or on the borderline.

Cheers... came close, varied between 125-220 or so but the DPC thing has pushed me back a little. Not much but a bit. Just got to work a bit harder to get there that's all.

Deleting Dollar Photo Club was a smart move by Adobe.

here is the enswer I receive from fotolia :

With the launch of Adobe Stock, our contributor payouts are growing overall. Because of the shutdown of Dollar Photo Club, a number of those customers are being migrated over to Adobe Stock, but that process isn't yet complete. Some individual contributors may feel the immediate effects of the transition more than others, but those effects should be temporary. Payouts are growing overall and as that migration continues, things should settle back to normal. We appreciate your understanding and your patience.

I see no reason to go against that. Matches what I'm seeing anyway. The initial impact is gradually disappearing... looks like the 80+ days are back based on todays figures!

The numbers have recovered a bit, no doubt. Then again, I did uploaded 200 more images since then and the downloads have gradually increased.

If DPC was still up, I'd say a 100 download day would have been possible.

The sell on Fotolia is very low because of Dollar Photo Club close. 33% less for me that is the same think for you? Bad decision to close that website:( Where do you think the buyer will go after that ?

Ludicrous nice troll.
