Thanks for the suggestion Cathy. Unfortunately, I don't have an Adobe account, so I'm using my Fotolia login as instructed. Not sure what additional benefits for all of us there are in having each contributor manually log in and sync (with problems that arise such as mine) as opposed to just either rebranding or syncing everything over while keeping usernames/passwords intact. While I see a lot of "it's a good idea" and "you may lose ranking", I don't see any obvious benefit, aside from editing ability after approval. Which they could just probably provide on Fotolia if they wanted to.

Hi @Daryl Ray, thanks for sharing your feedback. I apologize for any confusion I created for you. There is no obligation for you to sign into the portal if you do not want to. My intent was to inform you it was an option if you wanted to check it out. Your Fotolia will continue to act as normal and your portfolio will be available at Adobe Stock regardless of whether you submit via Fotolia or Adobe Stock.

If you do want to log into the portal you will need to either sync to an existing Adobe ID or since it appears you do not already have one, you will need to create an Adobe ID.  Your Fotolia credentials do not automatically generate an Adobe ID.

Sorry guys my question again!

My email for Adobe ID is different as my email login for Fotolia site.

I would really like to know what to choose to sync correctly my Fotolia account with new Adobe Contributor portal: "Create an Adobe ID" or "Continue with my Adobe ID" ? It is OK to choose Continue with my Adobe ID although i have different email for Fotolia contributor page?

Thank you :)

You should be able to keep your existing Adobe ID and sync it to your existing Fotolia account. It just won't be automatic since your email address is different.

Mat,

I have 2 adobe IDs: an old one using an Yahoo account and a more recent one using a Gmail account.
I had to create a new account when I decided to go for PS and LR cloud subscription, since the offer was better for new subscribers than for existing Adobe users. (strange, but that's a different topic)

Today, when I opened my new Adobe contributor account, I used the old Yahoo email (not the one I'm using to pay for PS and LR)
When I try to "manage my Adobe ID" (upper left menu) to switch to my Gmail account (the one I use to pay for PS and LR), I am told that my Fotolia account is "already in use". See the attachment.

Is there an advantage for FT/AS contributors to use the account used to pay for LR and PS?
If yes, can you explain why and let me know how to re-sync my second, active, Adobe ID to my Fotolia account?

Thanks.

Is an "Adobe ID" specific to the Adobe Stock site or is it something broader than that? For example, I have an ID I have used to log into the Adobe webstore.
The answer to my question is yes...i.e. I tried it and it worked.  :D

I have "same" problem. My login is not Fotolia username and I can't change this field.

How to fix this?

I don't necessarily want to "fix" it, unless there is some benefit. Let's wait for Mat's reply.

I would like to sync but I don't now how! There is some name in my login but is incorrect. Yes, let's for Mat's reply.

Thanks Matt for coming back about passwords.

What about commission rates being different on the two sites, Adobe Stock is showing a lower commission, so they are not syncing.

Like the clean look

Commission rates are the same. All images sold on Adobe Stock are paid 33% of the price paid. Fotolia subscriptions also result in commission of 33% paid. Fotolia credits sales are paid a percentage based on your rank. Please note that in your sales stats on Adobe Stock, this will also include your Fotolia sales just like Fotolia stats include Adobe Stock sales.

Is that where the disconnect is or is there another issue? If so, please provide specific details so I can check it out.

Thanks,

Mat


Hi Mat,

Thanks for getting back to me, I can see what going on its a bit confusing, the Fotolia site is reporting in credits and the Adobe site is reporting in pounds sterling.

Not sure of the correlation between these two sites in terms of money, but hope they are the same.

Many thanks

Roy

Thanks.

The only advantage I can think of to using the Adobe ID associated with your Creative Cloud membership is that you can upload directly through Lightroom and Bridge. Another benefit is that you won't need to log out and back in when going from processing your work to working in the portal. I'm learning first hand this can get a bit confusing but as with anything, over time it will become second nature.

Unfortunately, once you sync your account with an Adobe ID you can't switch it to a different ID or re-sync.

Thanks for clarifying. It's the same currency. What credits are worth in Fotolia is based on the zone you registered your account in. In your account for example, one credit should be equal to one pound. If you were registered in the US zone, one credit is equal to $1 USD.

The money is the same, it just reads a bit differently on the portal.

I see.
Then is there a way to be able to cancel my existing cloud subscription and re-subscribe with the old Adobe ID, while maintaining the same cost structure I already signup for?

That's a great question. Unfortunately I'm not qualified to answer it. You will need to check with Adobe Customer Support directly for any Creative Cloud questions. Sorry about that.

You might need to reset your password at Fotolia. Be sure it meets the criteria I mentioned in the thread above. I have to hop on a plane right now so I'll be offline for a bit. If you are still having trouble after resetting your Fotolia password, send me an email directly and I'll ask the team to take a look at your account.

email: [email protected]

Thanks for your patience,

Mat

So what are the benefits if we already upload to Fotolia?
Why should we move to the new site?

Thanks for the great feedback everyone. Keep in mind, this is a beta site so more features will be released as time goes on. Your input it very helpful. Right now, the bulk of the features will benefit contributors new to the submission process. We are working to simplify the upload process for everyone. As the beta site evolves, I expect you will begin to see more and more features that are advantageous to your workflow. If you are content with the Fotolia upload experience, there is no reason for you to change at this time though I still recommend you sync your accounts and take a look.

There are currently several specific features that you may like as existing contributors.

In the Adobe Stock contributor portal you will find the auto-keywording tool which is helpful if you are not adding your metadata in advance.

In addition, you can drag and drop your images into the web uploader which was a feature many have asked for. There is not a limit as to how many images you can drop at once which was another feature requested by many.

Also, something else that will be useful for some of you is that in the portal you can edit the keywords and title of your existing content if necessary.

-Mat

If I understand correctly, you can add/remove keywords and titles from files, that were already accepted and are online? If that is true, I will for sure upload through adobe.stock.

Yep, adding/deleting keywords and changing titles, after acceptance, is now possible! Nice step forward compared with the FT portal!

Well, I did it

But the FAQ is not clear in my opinion

The FAQ says:
"When you sign into the Contributor portal for the first time, youll be asked if you are registered as a contributor on the Fotolia site. If so, you will need to enter your Fotolia login and sync your accounts."

This means that when I sign into the Adobe page I should expect that on this page I will be asked if I am registered as a contributor on the Fotolia site.
But it is not like this.
1) I had to sign into the portal with my Adobe data
2) then, once entered, it is asked if I am registered as a contributor on the Fotolia site.

So the text of the FAQ should be:
"Once you have signed into the Contributor portal for the first time, with your Adobe data, then youll be asked if you are registered as a contributor on the Fotolia site. If so, you will need to enter your Fotolia login and sync your accounts."

God bless you ! and may he rain EL's into your account.

lol, thank you :)

Yes, still in the FAQ it is written: " You can only sync your Fotolia account to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal the first time you log in."

For this reason I was not sure to sign into my Adobe account or not.

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,

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.
