&
Excellent support from Mat and agency support team, as well.
TNX Mat.

Realy refreshing !
Nice weekend to all  :)

ecited, thank you, impressive... ;D

Yes they make PR (you call it support) in this forum. WOW!
They give us 33% commission and make millions.
Suggestion: Stop the "support" and pay a fair trade commission of 50%. 8)

For what should i say thank you?


No wonder that the agencies can make  what they want with us...

Baby-steps in the right direction are still steps. Fotolia scores some brownie points with their communication. Expecting leading agencies to suddenly start paying a fair 50% is unrealistic, considering those of us that could have helped prevent that trend years ago, failed miserably at doing so.

Only way to send a message is to sacrifice the worst of the leading agencies. Easy choice. iStock. If enough contributors severed ties with those scumbags demanding they lower the 85% commissions they rape from your content or pull their ports. Shutterstock, etc. would eventually notice and things might start to change. Or else "they could be next". But no, here come the sad excuses. Change takes sacrifice boys and girls, personal and financial. But the result in the end would be well worth it. Can't take the hit all at once? Drop exclusivity, stop uploading, speak out more, take a few down at a time. Do something or admit defeat.

Every single one of you that still contribute to and defend iStock are responsible for extending the state we are in now. Every time the idea of a "union" or some kind of collaborative effort gets shot down by frightened, uneducated, voices that dismiss the idea before it begins, we ensure our future stays as is.

Even a small yet vocal, organized, focused group represented by a handful of trusted big time contributors would change the game for us. The naysayers overlook the power of a vocal minority and the fact that the "big corporate, faceless" overlords are scared to death of negative public sentiments and will placate to preserve reputation. Consider politicians, television networks, etc. We don't need more than a measurable enough percentage of content represented, with a loud, consolidated voice to start developing momentum to push back with.

Many are underestimating the power we'd yield with a simple coalition, and over-estimating the disadvantage of the lack of total participation and the quality of the new content that deliver those ridiculous high stats that scare you so much. Simple communication and clear, honest goals would keep the recruitment healthy.

Or just keep complaining to thin air while bending over repeating, "yes sir, may I have another"...

Extended licenses for images will be available on-demand on Adobe Stock for $79.99


Mat, Adobe is undercutting my 100 credits/EL, I'm always setting on FT.

Why asking only for $79.99, when I know that my stuff regularly sells for 100 credits on FT?

It will be highly appreciated if you could set the minimum price at $79.99 and allow higher FT prices to be copied to AS.

Had my first EL sale from FT a few days ago and I didn't notice it until today. It seems to be working.

FL has always offered ELs, do you mean Adobe?

Off topic, great to see you are reclaiming that word by the way.

I think it's FT. If they've always offered it, then it's my first EL ever on the site.

Which word are you referring to?
