I like Fotolia, they (Adobe most likely) surely know how to sell footage. Joined only several months ago and now having there approx half of Shutterstock sales in terms of revenue.

One thing bothers me a bit, there is still no single 4K sale for me. What is your experience?

I have only sold one 4k clip there, but not that many in the other sites either to be honest.

I sell more 4K clips on Pond5 which are priced the same as Shutterstock.
I've had a few 4K sales on Shutterstock.
I've had no 4K sales on Fotolia.

Just getting my entire video port online there now. If any company in this business can pull off a good stock site Adobe has that chance!

Sounds good! Sorry for going slightly offtopic, but 4K pricing on Pond5 was always trouble for me. My cheap 4K clips have sold several times but I can remember only one sale of the clip priced at $159. I think my camera 4K output might be the problem since usually buyer might be seeking some high end RED 4K footage I guess...

I have sold 4 4k clips over the past 2 months. I don't have a ton but subject matter is still king!

And despite twice having unsubscribed from all adobe communications twice over all the spam about adobe stock, I got yet another one this morning inviting me (not personally, it's presumably a blanket email) to sell via Adobe Stock.

I hate adverts and I hate spam.
Stop it already. Obey my unsubscribe instructions.

so good with is and ss these days???

They haven't a clue about my work, it was a general spam email.
But given that I feel kicked in the stomach when I get 75c for an iS sub sale, and worse when it's a lot less from Getty, the chance of me willingly signing up for 25c is very slight (which is why I was never in SS), but as always, I reserve the right to change my mind.

Adobe's cloud is a big scamespecially for loyal customers like myself. Glad the stock sales are improving as it doesn't make me hate them so much. But I still won't rent their clouds.  8)

You won't rent their cloud. But there are lot many people who will do. Also this isn't super costly that it cannot be afforded.

ah, good reason. it didn't cross my mind i too would be starting at 25c at AS.
still, we all started at 28 c with ss and got some good earnings for a while before they went public to get a shortfall of 50%.
as someone here said, it does not matter if it's pennies so long as it adds up to something worthwhile.

still, i am not sure if we will ever see the days of cumulative worthwhile-ness with anyone to the right column in the future.
but like you, i will reserve my right to change my mind if hell freezes over ;)

My Fotolia sales are definitely picking up now more than they were. I make sales more consistently there than at SS nowadays.

i would not be surprised, given the consensus of zero days at ss forum.

adobe has the credibility factor, and fotolia, even in my early days in the days when we only had
5 contenders is, fotolia, ss, dreamstime and bigstock,
was always giving me good earnings.
i only stopped because it was too much work giving to all 5,
when ss started making me regular money with whatever i submitted.

as i said, it will be good if we do get back to 5 contenders
say, stocksy, alamy, adobe and canva
as this will prevent us putting too many eggs in one basket...
like we used to do with all istock or all ss.
