I think it's Fotolia, and I think it sucks that Fotolia is going to be terminated.

If more people think so, maybe they'll change their mind or maybe they'll make Adobe Stock better.

Fotolia, no questions.

I really hope they improve Adobe.

I mean, they have such an easy upload example with Shutterstock as well, they really donˋt need to reinvent the wheel.

Involve a few pro stock artists and put ease of use first.

Fotolia for sure. Fotolia user interface is more compact and thus easier to navigate. Adobe one is modern with everything being bigger, thus feels cumbersome.

Fotolia, of course.
Adobe web designers have no idea about ergonomics, no idea about the needs of the users, no idea how to design a web site

Fotolia, not compared just to Adobe but all MS agencies. Best interface by far. Everything accesible with one click and you don't have too look all over the screen/monitor like on adobe.

Fotolia is miles better.
They should have just copied the site for contributors.

Fotolia. I avoid to use AS as long as I can.

If someone from AS reads this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep at least info about number of views for each image!

Same here. I still use Fotolia even if they made it harder to get in.
I'm not logged in automatically anymore and there are 4 annoying extra clicks required, before getting to the main page. Despite that, the original site is better than the new one from Adobe.

Ha Ha, they will change their mind? All I can say is I hope they continue to develop and adjust the AS site, it's not November yet.

I like the Fotolia site better, I have never liked the new, modern look of sites with big giant fonts, spread out everywhere. But as long as they keep improving the Adobe site, which they seem to be doing, I think I will adapt.

Why are we even having this discussion? Fotolia no longer exists. Sign-in, Google search, all roads lead to Adobe Stock (with a big headline that proclaims "Fotolia is now Adobe Stock!")

Actually, I just logged into my Fotolia dashboard, and used it as before. There was a banner at the top saying Fotolia is now Adobe Stock though. But its not gone yet.

Fotolia !!! easy dashboard than adobestock. I can see my rank level and how much sales I need to go to next level. I wish this will stay with adobestock. But I heard nothing about it. Also, I didn't figure how to make a search in our own portfolio on adobestock.

I reckon there is a good chance they will get rid of the ranking system and we will end up with a flat rate for everyone.

Perhaps someone from Adobe can answer this point.

It's amazing to me how website 'designers' never actually try and use the page they have designed. Getting contributors to move the mouse and click all over the screen is just bad design.

Look at the new Adobe 'Insights' page. It's now 4 clicks just to see your Activity Statistics. It used to be one click.

Who at Adobe thought it best for us to see the 'Contributors of the Week' before our own statistics?

I think that some Adobe people own Logitech shares

LOL it isn't really all that complicated, and I think you are just trying to be difficult and find something to complain. How do you look at sales on iStock - how many clicks?  :) Shutterstock? And you use the bookmarks FOLDER not put everything on the tool bar. Alamy? How do you get to Adobe without a bookmark in the first place?

Make the https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights/sales-earnings  your main bookmark for Adobe! Remove the old one if you insist on using the tool bar for all the bookmarks on your computer. See it's easy if you try.  8)

I do not upload to iStock.

You don't seem to realize that opening a bookmarks folder is several mouse moves and clicks. Do that everyday for years and you will see why I am complaining. The Fotolia process used to be one click.

. . . and yes, one of the factors I decide on before uploading to a site is how time consuming is the upload.
