No. As far as I know I don't have a Fotolia account - except when I applied once when they were offering to match downloads they said that option was only open to people that didn't already have a FT acct. I find the stats available to Adobe contributors to be pretty lacking.

I use Adobe to upload now, but I use Fotolia because I can buy licenses one at a time using my earnings. Coudn't do that through Adobe.

I haven't bothered.  As long as the FT site works I'm too lazy to learn a new one unless there is a clear benefit to more sales.  Sorry.

I use stocksubmitter now to submit to FL. Before I still used FL rather than the new interface. Didn't see the point of using Adobe as the result is the same. Now there's definitely no point, it's all the same at my end.

I still use FT to submit.
If I remember correctly, when the contibutor site of Adobe Stock was launched, one of the issues for me was that you could not set the EL price there. Which leads to an EL price lower than the maximum (which I always use) on FT.
Haven't bothered to look at submitting via Adobe since.
Are there any benefits?

I am synced. I have used the Adobe site for a couple of things. But I am not afraid to admit that I hate learning new things, so I continue to upload through Fotolia, since I know it. If it disappears, I will be forced to use the Adobe site, and I will.

Thanks for checking in Matt.

I prefer to submit using Adobe, but do everything else in Fotolia. Please please please do not shut the Fotolia contributor interface before Adobe Stock is at least on par with it (if not better!).

Eg: stats reporting, quick stats on weekly/daily sales etc

Synced first days it was offered. I answered but there's wasn't an option for - Upload ftp Fotolia, submit with Adobe (much easier to move around keywords and click things, better interface), look at stats on FT because Adobe doesn't offer many of the details or information.

Using both is still necessary because they don't offer the same choices for us.

I have sync'd my Fotolia account with Adobe Stock but I don't see an answer that covers my usage.

 I use Fotolia for sales stats - because Adobe Stock has almost nothing in that area. I use Adobe Stock for uploading and submitting because it's much easier.

If the Fotolia back end for contributors is going away, I hope there's a plan to do something on the Adobe Stock site to provide sales stats (beyond the current balance and a list of sales, which I realize is already there)

I use the Fotolia contributor portal, haven't even bothered to check Adobe even once. Actually Fotolia is one of best working contributor portals in the industry, the only thing I don't like about it is the the ridiculously small thumbnails when i'm looking through the list of my images. But I like the overall page design and functionality, best stats page among all sites, sensible layout. I also like the fact that it haven't really changed throughout the years. I just hate most of nowadays' page design where everything takes up a lot of space, you have to scroll a lot and still seeing not too much information, etc.. Looks like  most sites are designed for phones

No I didn't. Didn't know if it was an option, if anyone asked me if it could be an option, I would say yes, but I don't care to check. I don't know what would be the benefit of it, and usually those things are irreversible. Which means if something in programming goes belly up, it is more work and wasted time for me. I am not paid by time but by results, which means I go by if it aint broke don't fix it.

I found that my sales have increased since syncing. I still submit through Fotolia as I found some issues with the Adobe submission system. Of course Fotolia isn't great either. Maybe I should see if Adobe has improved since some people in these comments seem to prefer it.

I have synced and use Adobe Stock now, it has better interface, however I really hate to order the keywords manually. It would be much better if this was no longer important. Please do something about it. Photographers have better things to do than wasting their time with keyword reordering.

My sales have increased without syncing.  I think that's just Adobe doing a better job of getting sales - more than twice what they ever were before Adobe and increasing every year despite not uploading too much.  Hope they keep it up!

Don't your keywords show in the order you have them in the EXIF saved in the photo? Mine do

When you go to the adobe stock website and click on the button of "sell photos", the website will ask you if you already have an account on fotolia. and if you do, it will offer you to sync the accounts by clicking on a "sync" button.

Honestly I am not sure what benefits we get from doing it but I synced anyway :)

Shoot me an email with your account info and I'll take a look. Extended licenses are 79.99 at Adobe Stock and the commission is 33% fyi.

I'm familiar with the 26.4 credits commission, that must be the one you talk about

Hi Mat,

will an exclusive option come at a later stage? Because everyone signing up now, can only do it via Adobe.

And will there be a program to add content for Premium distribution? At the moment I have content going to Adobe premium via stocksy and eyeem. But if there was a direct upload option, I would be interested.

Any idea when editorial will come to Adobe? Especially with video it brings reliable sales.

Yes, editorial for both images and videos. I do not have any stats but on my biggest agency the editorial content makes up for about half of my income, or something close. On other agencies something similar happens.

When you go to the adobe stock website and click on the button of "sell photos", the website will ask you if you already have an account on fotolia. and if you do, it will offer you to sync the accounts by clicking on a "sync" button.

Honestly I am not sure what benefits we get from doing it but I synced anyway :)

Thanks. Looks like I am synced...I was able to log in and saw my portfolio.

FT for upload and stats, Adobe to edit. The dashboard on FT is a lot better than anything on Adobe, sales view is better with size and license details. Only place Adobe is better is it opens in my portfolio with big thumbnails. No sync doesn't change anything right now, but what about the future? I want everything to be in order and in sync.

Hi Matt, I didn't notice this is option until I read this thread about a week ago.

(I've not been so much following microstock in the last years). Now I found and followed instructions and had the accounts synced (I already had an Adobe account as LR&PS user). All my 612 images on Fotolia went to rejected bin instantly (no time for human review), either for 'technical issues' (e.g. File ID: 59960808) or for 'file could not be accepted' (e.g. File ID: 60793638) or even 'SIMILAR IMAGE(S) ALREADY SUBMITTED' (e.g. File ID: 50543551).

Why this happened?
Thank you in advance!

Hi Mat, when forolia started with adobe stock we were told we had to scinc the first time we logged in... I was never given the option. Just a question, can we now scinc even if its not the first time? If not may be its something to think about as I'm sure I can't be the only one avoiding using the adobe stock upload in case my images don't appear on ft as well.🙂

The reviews are done manually by humans. I checked your uploads and see that it was fast but not automatic. Looks like you submitted just over an hour after you uploaded and they were reviewed about 3 hours after you submitted.

No, not if you logged into Adobe Stock. If you didn't sync to Fotolia when you first created your Adobe Stock account then what happened is the system created a new phantom Fotolia account so your uploads will be available at Fotolia in addition to Adobe Stock. This is different from any existing Fotolia account you already had. If you have a separate Fotolia account it is extremely important you only upload to one or the other. Do not submit the same content to Fotolia and Adobe Stock separately.

Hi Mat, thank you for your reply. It still sounds odd to me that out of 612 photos accepted on Fotolia, not a single one was accepted on Adobe Stock. I still think I made some mistake in the procedure. I can not even find the way to contact support, or a forum on the website!

Are you submitting the same content separately to Adobe Stock and Fotolia? If so, that's a problem. Fotolia and Adobe Stock are one and the same. Any content that is approved via Fotolia is automatically online at Adobe Stock and vice versa. If you are submitting separately to two different accounts, that is essentially spam as you are sending the same files to both sites twice. Please contact me directly if this is the case so we can get it sorted out.

no, this is not the case. What happened is that I synced the AS and FT accounts only at the beginning of the month. (I had never uploaded anything on AS). All the images I had on FL were immediately rejected on AS.

There is no separation between the two sites. If it was approved at Fotolia then it is automatically online at Adobe Stock. If you tried submitting the same images again in Adobe Stock they would be rejected because you have already submitted the files.

Can't find anywhere on Adobe where it says sync with Adobe if you already have a Fotolia account.
The choice is either, 'Get Started' or 'I already have an Adobe ID'. I have an Adobe ID as subscriber to PS and LR but based on the experience of another poster here (RCerruti), I'm not going to enter that Adobe CC ID because it will probably reject all my already accepted Fotolia images.

So........where's the sync button because I don't see it?

Create an account using your existing Adobe ID. If the Adobe ID is the same as your email listed with your Fotolia account, the sync process will start automatically after you confirm your intent.

If it's a different email address you will be asked if you are an existing Fotolia contributor during the setup process. Select yes at which time you will be prompted to enter your Fotolia login name and password.
