I see a constant growth with fotolia. Sales are getting better.
Adobe is seriously working on it, I am sure it will be a good competitor for shutterstock.

it`s just a feeling or?  ;)
From this month sales are going better. Holidays are over. Customers come back from summer holiday. Every year the same. Not related to Adobe i think.

They are certainly pushing hard.
I unsubscribed from all Adobe mailings because of constant pushing of stock images. All was fine for a while, then a few weeks back I got a few unrequested free offer emails and unsubscribed again.

I recently had a rep from fotolia/adobe reach out asking for more images (with the usual incentives hard disk or ftp submission and they do the rest etc), they are definitely pushing!

FT is going better this month than DT right now (yes, I said better than DT)
Nothing like the glory days though ... I had a rep asking me for more images too but I like to keyword my own. I wish their category selection was easier.

Is DT good for you? For me its fallen off a cliff. Finding FT quite variable quiet then a run of nice sales

For me DT is very poor, I stopped upload there.

I hear DT is very bad for lots of people but the agency is still doing okay for me. DT has always made more than FT but maybe not this month...

I don't have the same experience in FT. My sales there are only around 5% from what I have on SS  :-\

Maybe I don't have the type of images that sell well there. It can also be the quality of the images, but in SS I perform quick well. On FT I have around 1.600 files (half of I have on SS) and I'm around the 7000th position on the general ranking.

I also stop uploading pictures on DT. Sales are becoming smaller and smaller. For me it is a waste of time. I stop uploading on iS too ( do to they last " great news").

Just goes to show we shouldn't generalize our own experience too much DT has never been great for me

I said 6 Months ago FT is the one to watch. real Hot for me and getting Hotter. Adobe is a Professional Company. And last Month DT finally started some positive Movement. SS is now dead again after a amazing August.

It's never been on my radar... ever. 0.25c per download 8 years ago was despicable and it remains even more so 8 years later.

Yes Adobe is a professional company with a very good customer base.
For instance there are more than 7 Million Paid Members of creative cloud and they also have a pre-existing customer base of fotolia.
I strongly think they will be a good or very good competition of shutterstock.

Mine have emigrated on Mars :(

Fotolia is enough irregular for me, but sales seem to grow slowly.
DreamsNightmarestime is a complete disaster, sales are less and less every month, despite regular uploads
Shutterstock is always stable, but does not grow so fast even with a bigger portfolio. Old images continue to sell well, new images sell but not as much as expected

DT is alive, but their policy regarding model releases is strange and i take this case as personal, they do not accept any model release. All the years. Their reason is strange - nationalities and countries of model AND photographer should match (they didn't accept release given even at Yuri workshop in Aarhus - participants remember?). The same copy of release was accepted by all agencies and for other models no problems with releases. They don't sell good enough to do exclisive shots for them only.

my sales is pretty good. Close to shutterstock this month. Huge change for me. this is good because the sale price is better for my photos there. What that shutterstock will stop refuse photo  just because they lost sale money ;)

They are definitely increasing and I am liking those $1.65 sales - they are about the only agency that is increasing RPDL, although they started at a low level.  Lifetime they are number 6 for me overall, behind DT at number 3 and 124rf at number 4.  Canva passed them last month for number 5.  By the end of the year I expect FT will be back at number 5 as both DT and 123 (and most of the other small ones) have pretty much died the past few months.  My prediction is that only SS, FT and Canva will survive the next couple of years - the others will fold, be absorbed, or reduced to insignificance.  Hope I'm wrong but that seems to be where it's heading right now.

Fotolia is still almost dead for me.  Tried uploading new images but it made no difference, so probably not worth it.

Finding them quite inconsistent but then again pretty much everywhere seems to be for me these days apart from the walking dead sites such as Yay

My 2nd best agency.  I too like the FT sales that are more than the paltry 25 cents with many other agencies.
