you do see that monthly packs (worst deal for contributors with 5% commission) are more prominently advertised!? As usual Fotolia screw us even more!

Not that I want to defend Fotolia, but didn't they change the payouts for the monthly packs to 20% (25% if you are opted in to DPC) instead of normal subs royalties?
That's the reason why we're seeing subs sales with higher royalties than the normal subs rates...

OK what does this mean?

"You are about to submit 1 content. Content without complete indexing will be saved but not submitted for moderation.
Cancel/Confirm"

No idea  ???

Clicked confirm and it went thru to review anyway

Horrible:

 1. Now it is much harder sort keywords by relevance.

 2. No recalls previous categories

I can't find how to get to see my portfolio.  Also, with the new design, does it mean we will get less money for our work?

Some upload changes observed

> Ability to upload multiple images via webform uploader
> No more Descriptive and Conceptual Categories. Only one 'Category' which is a 3-level one
> Exclusivity? and Free section? default to a 'No'
> Only 'XS' and 'X' shown

> Between 7 and 30 keywords in their order of importance (not 50 as before)

Please see the clarification below from Mat on this.

Hi all, just a quick note to let you know that you can still upload images with a maximum of 50 keywords. It's been determined that the sweet spot for keywords is between 20-30 so the number 30 you have read on the site is a recommendation and not a mandate or change. The language will be changed on the site asap.

It's hard to see our upload images. I don't like it.

It might be nice if they are going to completely change the interface that they give a bit of help. I keep getting errors because I haven't completely indexed, whatever that means, and I have no idea what I haven't done

Does that web redesign come with a management redesign?

Changes can be good. But there was a chance and Fotolia has not taken the oppoturnity. Even for a buyer the new design is not clearly arranged. By the way, the new Fotolia and the Pic Niche Toolbar does not work together!  :(

If they are going to change the max keywords to something less than the standard - that is going to mess with a lot of people keywording.  I guess it's important to keep the keywords in order of importance so that if they get trimmed by a site, only the least important words will get clipped.

That may mean that you have uploaded images that need finishing off and sending for review

I hope that doesn't mean that they are going to cut already uploaded images down to 30 keywords.

+1 for earnings and rankings at the top of every page. Not a fan of everything white (a design disease) with a lot of thin fonts, the old layout was more intuitive and easier to find what you're looking for. Three green boxes (with small thin text)! Looks like a load of random text boxes were dropped down the stairs onto a Word page!

FYI: The DPC flag ('Sell your files on DPC?') is under the 'Business preferences' section of the 'Contributor area > My preferences'.

And why does the X price still auto appear as 30 and not 60! Hope the exclusivity and free choices are remembered too (only uploaded one file - twice because the first upload didn't appear then I had 2 copies to index).

the thumbnail previews are bigger and look more detailed to me...but everything else is tiny. How are you supposed to read that text on mobile devices without zooming in all the time?

(watching these kids in a cafe in London today texting like maniacs on their phones using two thumbs - whereas I'm stabbing away at my iphone with a giant index finger and no doubt had my tongue poked out to aid concentration).
