Not too sure hitting emerald will result in any increase at all. I remember Lisa wrote something about once you get to that level the sort order will not be in your favour. I know as a Gold I was earning almost double of what I'm getting now and I am not the only one.

I'll know when I get there. I haven't seen a conspiracy theory that amounts to reality yet, so I'm not too concerned about it. I'm looking forward to Emerald to set my own prices for my images.

I don't see Fotolia passing SS anytime soon, but my sales there have probably doubled since Adobe took over.

For me FT is almost the same as SS untill now this month. Last month was close too.
It's not because FT sells more, but because SS is unusual low, even for summer period.

For 2016 till now FT is about 2/3 of SS.

My prediction was hard to believe but thanks to SS Engineers they are making it true by giving 3-4 flaws on site every week. You can see changed stats on the right too :)

They wont even come close. They had the chance after just merging with Adobe to turn it in to something good but instead they went back to the old tricks of Oleg. They blew it.

Not leaving out editorial.......

They are gaining month on month for me. They are now making more than half what SS does, they used to do about a quarter. They have only just started fully integrating with adobe cloud. I predict in two years they will be the market leaders.

I think if they accepted editorial, it would greatly draw new customers and drive sales

FT/Adobe has soared past Istock/Getty this year.  They have gone from 1/4 SS to almost 3/4 SS. 

And to anyone complaining about playing games with the search when you hit emerald, if that was ever true, it isn't anymore, at least I'm not seeing it as emerald.   Adobe doesn't seem to be rigging the system like FT used to.

FT has been on fire for me. It was on pace to surpassing SS in August, but by some miracle, I set a best day record and had a large sale on the last day of the month that put SS up by a few dollars.

Based on my sales patterns, SS put up some really high download numbers, but FT put up some high RPI. Despite the lower download numbers, it's still able to match SS.

They've been neck and neck for months. I'm seeing some strong growth on both sites and I'm happy with the performance of both sites.

Yep! Last month I had a FT BME accounting for about 1/2 from my SS revenue.

could it be due to the latest f***ups with our portfolios vanishing that made clients of ss
look to fotolia???  istock-ers did not report a surge of sales during that period
so it can only have gone to fotolia. .. i think.

ss editorial isn't really on fire , either... so that could not be an impetus for fotolia.

In theory, if they had gone to iS and got subs, we wouldn't know if it had impacted our sales as subs for August haven't been reported yet.
Not saying there will be any actual boost at iS, obviously.

This makes a lot of sense.  I don't think anyone is going from SS to IS, but Adobe is a very easy and appealing  way for customers to add photos to their projects.

Interesting I'm not a "user" so I don't know how this experience compares with using S Stock but I can see how this might be a benefit.

I don't think the clients even noticed. If one portfolio disappears, they'll just download images from another contributor on SS.

FT has been getting quite a bit of exposure because of Adobe. Previously, many buyers wasn't even aware of FT, but they now know what Adobe Stock is because of the close integration with Adobe products.

FT/Adobe Stock will only gain more traction from here on out. It's a good agency to be part of because they're currently in a growth phase...while iStock and DT continue their fall into oblivion.

My sales on FT improved a LOT, but it's still far away from SS. Problem is that contribs are drawing world-wide conclusions from smallish, kinda' lcv ports.

Why not remove it from your signature? It's confusing to everyone who reads your posts. And you waste your time telling people that it's not part of your post.

Something funky going on with Fotolia notifications.  It's now saying "Content Sold" as the title of the site mail instead of "Fotolia  File Sold".  Don't know if that indicates something.
