But how do I get there please? Everything redirects to Adobe....

PS please can you fix it that when you have chosen a geographical area ie language, the system holds this for future logins? Only a minor irritation, but still a pain....

No Fotolia!!!!  I cant get in there at all now??  whats happening??

Fotolia is still up and running. You will have access until Nov 5, 2019. The features will be limited after February 5 but you will still be able to log in.

There should be a link to continue to Fotolia after you see the prompt to go to Adobe Stock instead.

Cheers! Matt!

Hi Mat,

If I upload on Adobe, what will the extended license price be set on Fotolia? I always set the price to 100. How can I make sure it is still set for this price?

Thank you!

I'm trying to break myself of the habit going to fotolia.com to check my sales and keywork new clips, but it's really hard.  Like, quitting smoking hard.

Fotolia's interface, while dated, seems much more practical.  Maybe I'm just used to it, being a years-long user of it.

Plus, it feels like the Adobe Stock website is very sluggish, which is frustrating.

Anyone else notice the Adobe Stock website being slow?

...Anyone else notice the Adobe Stock website being slow?

Yes, very slow - assuming you're talking about the contributor interface. When I sit down in the morning to check stats on SS and then AS (I'm trying to break the habit of checking FT for stats so changed my bookmarks), I notice how much time it takes to load the AS "dashboard" versus SS's contributor dashboard.

Given how little information is in the AS interface when it loads, it really shouldn't take that long. Every day I notice that tiny (for me unreadable) number up in the top right corner which is the one piece of information I want to see first and clearly - current balance.

Then I go back to FT's interface (which requires two clicks on the bookmark as the first one always loads the "go to AS now" interface, and the second the requested FT contributor dashboard) where I can see weekly sales so far in $$ and downloads, current balance, weekly and overall rank all without any additional clicking on my part.

It's not that FT's interface is so great, but AS's contributor interface has virtually no useful information.

I've never smoked, so I can't make that comparison, but it's a bit like Google vs Bing for searches - why would you use Bing when Google's so good?

Yes, with my 100 Mbps connection it needs 5 sec to open the page.
Really too much.

contributors outside the US paid in USD can receive payments through Payoneer,
Mat Hayward

this is the part that interest me - I receive payments in EUR so there is no options for payments through Payoneer. Also I can't change in my account to be payment in USD. Do you have any plan to change this?

I just tried uploading with the new Adobe interface, and I like it very much. However, I cannot set the price for the ELs as I can on the Fotolia page from 30-100.

Mat, I know you have said in the past that we can write in and get this changed, but are we to write in every time we make a submission, or are you going to allow us to set a default amount somewhere?

This is the part that bothers me.  Somehow my account got set to pay in pounds Sterling, even though I signed up on the US site in the US.  Now if I go to convert it pays a standard 0.75 pounds per credit.  The current exchange rate is 0.79 pounds per dollar, so I would lose 5% in that conversion, then would have to pay another fee to convert back to dollars if I actually want to use the money.  Can't we just change the currency for payout?  In my case it should be easy because I want it to just stay in dollars rather than convert at all.  I imagine there may be people who were working in Britain and taking payouts in pounds who may move to the continent and would want payment in Euros, especially after Brexit, so I assume I am not the only one who would like to change their payout currency.  That should be a very easy change to make programming-wise I would think.  Or at least use the current conversion rates so we don't take a big hit off the bat.

No plans to change this that I'm aware of.

The Extended license price is fixed across the entire collection at Adobe Stock. The price is $79.99. There is no need for the feature you have requested. While Fotolia is still active however, we can make the change to extended license prices for you. The most efficient way to  submit the request is to write us via the "contact us" link at the bottom of the Adobe Stock Contributor Portal. You can also open a ticket via Fotolia however our response time will likely be slower.

My own experience:

I switched my uploading habits recently and moved from Fotolia to Adobe Stock.
On Fotolia, I used to always set my EL price to the maximum possible (100).
If I look at my last uploaded images (uploaded via Adobe Stock), the EL price is set to 100 (without me requesting anything from support).
Somehow it seems to work how I want it  :)

Thanks Mat,

I'll just go with it then, and not worry.

I wish mine did, as my uploads via Adobe reverted to 30 for ELs on the Fotolia site.

If you do not have an Adobe ID then click "Get Started" to set one up and sync. If you have an existing Adobe ID then click "I already have an Adobe ID" to sync it with Fotolia.

Hey Mat, any updates on Weekly Rankings and Search within our portfolios? Finding an image in the portfolio is pretty much impossible right now.
