Hi, I quit Fotolia years ago but when I get into Adobe with my Adobe password I have to sign up for a testversion of Adobe sign which ultimately costs $120 a year. Is this correct? The link to this test version doesn't work by the way. What do I do?
Thanks,

Where do you "get into Adobe"?
Do you want to contribute to Adobe stock? The support files say that:

Quote
Step 1:
Create an account
Submit content on Fotolia.com. And coming soon, submit directly on Adobe Stock or through Lightroom CC and Bridge CC.
Still you could try to sign in here but the upload links redirect to FT (for now):

https://contributor.stock.adobe.com or https://stock.adobe.com/contributor

Hi, Mat u should change " rank" types. For pictures should be a certain rank , for video another type of rank and so on...I'm a video contributor and my curent rank it is bronze, i would like to reach the silver " rank"  but I have no chance ...need 706 more sales.
As you already know, video sales are not nearly as frequent as happens to photos.

I think this is already changed. I remember I was about 40-50 points from Gold, sold a video and bam ...Gold status. But I couldn't find exactly how many points a video sale means.

What points? Your level changes, when you reach certain number of downloads. There is no "points"....Maybe 1 video sale counts for more downloads...

I also think that editorial is a important thing. From all top sites adobe/fotolia is only one not offering it. There are lots of people designing editorial pages. Is there any editorial plan?

good point. i know at least a handful of ss editorial-photogs who are waiting for
someone like stocksy, canva, or adobe to accept editorials
... before they move their large editorial ports to them...
as ss used to be very efficient with editorials ...
but suddenly these past months, it's like wasting energy uploading editorials to ss anymore
for them.

You got it!
But the question remains: how many equivalent photo sales is a video sale?

That question is easily anwserable: Write down your total number of sales, then wait for video sale, check again total number of sales, take away downloads of photos and there you have it...

Thanks Matt!

Mine worked. I'm not sure now if I should contribute to Fotolia and Adobe Stock (if I ever get to uploading). If I upload to both will the content be duplicated or ...sync across platform? Thanks.

Yeah, right. Thanks!
But I prefer the lazy way and ask the forum for this info   :P.
Or maybe we could even get an official clarification since this info is nowhere on the site.

Yes, it doesn't matter which platform you upload through, your approved content will be online at both Fotolia and Adobe Stock.

Now we have image view count under portfolio thumbs, not just sales. Good idea.

Yes, you are right. I think I confused it with SS, sorry.

Hey Matt,

I can't seem to find a way to sort my portfolio on Adobe Stock. Eg: I want to find a specific file in my thousands of online files, I need to go through each page at the moment - correct?

I think we really need the ability to search within a portfolio by keyword, id number etc, and then be able to link from the search results to an image asset page where we can edit it if we need to.

I think for me this is the number 1 thing I would like to see at the moment.

Cheers.

Is it fair to ask WHY there need to be two separate sites to handle ONE account?

I haven't done the activation on Adobe yet but I have seen here that apparently there is a limitation on Adobe when it comes to Extended License pricing...? Am I correct that if I submit on Adobe that I can only set the EL to 80 credits max, while on Fotolia I can set it to 100?

First, why is it different?

Secondly, is this the beginning of a planned transition to ONE Adobe account while Fotolia will be shut down in a year or two? Would that mean that this automatically will lead to a new EL pricing?

Again, why two sites to handle one account? It just don't get it. Many questions.

Also the wording to switch to Adobe ("(which we would highly recommend you to do so!)") makes me feel icky.

I signed up and I think my account converted automatically, I can see the TAx form says updated already, so I guess I don't need to do anything....

if we upload to Adobe, does the image appears on Fotolia?

@Microstock Man, you can search from within your portfolio at Adobe Stock. The search needs to be through Adobe Stock however and not the portal. The way to do this is to click the "Contributor Account" link at the top then click "See my public profile" in the upper right corner.

From there, any searches you conduct will only produce results from your portfolio.

@click_click Lots of good questions here, thanks for writing. I'll do my best to answer them all for you.


Is it fair to ask WHY there need to be two separate sites to handle ONE account?

You don't need to use the portal. It is a new tool that has been created in an effort to speed up the workflow of contributors but it is not mandatory for you to use. You can continue to use the Fotolia upload process as normal. Your content will still be available through Adobe Stock even if you never visit the Adobe Stock Contributor Portal.

I haven't done the activation on Adobe yet but I have seen here that apparently there is a limitation on Adobe when it comes to Extended License pricing...? Am I correct that if I submit on Adobe that I can only set the EL to 80 credits max, while on Fotolia I can set it to 100?

That is correct. Extended license prices are fixed at $79.99 on Adobe Stock for all contributors except for the Premium collection. The commission rate for all is 33% on these sales. At Fotolia if you are ranked silver or higher you can set your Extended license prices between 30 credits and 100 credits. Your commission is determined by your rank.


First, why is it different?

Are you referring to the Extended License prices? If so, I wasn't involved in those discussions so I can't be sure. I can see why it would be beneficial from a customers perspective to have a more consistent price structure across the system on content.

Secondly, is this the beginning of a planned transition to ONE Adobe account while Fotolia will be shut down in a year or two? Would that mean that this automatically will lead to a new EL pricing?

Not to my knowledge. Fotolia is still the #1 agency in Europe providing great service to a large customer base. Both sites are running independently of each other so as a contributor you get the advantages of both agencies.

Again, why two sites to handle one account? It just don't get it. Many questions.

See my answer above.

Also the wording to switch to Adobe ("(which we would highly recommend you to do so!)") makes me feel icky.

I think the quote you are referencing was regarding the sync process when you first sign in to the contributor portal. If you don't sync your Adobe ID to your Fotolia account the system will create a new account for you and you will be starting fresh at Adobe Stock. Your stats and rank will not carry over. Since you can only sync on the first visit I felt it was important to emphasize the importance.

Thanks again for the questions,

Mat Hayward

Hi Matt:

Thank you for that info.
You say: "Since you can only sync on the first visit I felt it was important to emphasize the importance."

You are talking about syncing and retaining and losing rank - first I've heard about that, so could you explain exactly the process, as you say it has to be done right first time.

So; I contribute to fotolia directly on the fotolia site. I have an Adobe ID because I have bought plenty of Adobe software.

Do I now go to: https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/  ?
It says "Contribute Now (beta)" and "sign in with Abobe account"

Is this the place to be to do this syncing?

I don't want to go further at this stage before knowing exactly what will happen

Will there be a place to request syncing of fotolia account? Is it obvious?

Cheers, Pablito

Yes, you will be prompted to sync your Adobe ID with your Fotolia ID when you first sign in to contributor.adobe.com. If the email address on your Adobe ID is the same as what is in your Fotolia profile and you have created only one Fotolia account this process will be automatic and is required. If your email address is different however, once you log in you will be asked if you are already an existing Fotolia contributor. Select yes, then enter your Fotolia login name and password. At that point you should be all set.

Hey Matt,

Thanks for answering everybody's posts.

However, I think you missed a key part of my post. You are indeed correct that from Adobe Stock you can search a users portfolio (which I had already done before making my post).

However, unless I am missing something, from viewing the user's portfolio in this way there is no way to then edit a file's details. I can license my own image etc etc, but can't edit it.

Thats what I am wanting - a way to search my portfolio for a specific file AND then edit that file.

If that exists already please tell me how to do it. If it doesn't exist, I think its a pretty vital feature that is missing.

Thanks Matt.

Yes you can from your portfolio.

Title and Keywords can be edited - just click on the field and the edit function becomes active.

Hi Mat,

Thanks for staying in contact with us and answering our questions. However, I am very concerned about this issue:
http://www.microstockgroup.com/general-stock-discussion/be-careful-to-an-illegal-free-stock/msg465076/

All of Adobe/Fotolia licenses restrict sharing the purchased files with any other person or entity or post the Work online in a downloadable format whether it is for sale or for free. I was about to email Fotolia legal because I saw my image on this site giving away our images for free, but someone posted that they are using Fotolia API. Is there any way you could pass this along? I'm sure Fotolia/Adobe isn't knowingly allowing this.

Thank you
