I use fotolia because adobestock don't have thoses features yet. There's more info easily available at fotolia for contributor. My rank, (is it gonna stay ? I hope so), weekly rank, latest sold, best sellers ... etc ... I need those features and it's missing in adobestock.

Totally agree, especially about the ranking.

Is it possible to add the whole Fotolia/Adobe portfolio on Adobe Portfolio personal website ?

You should be able to if you add every image to a collection. There isn't a way to do it as a bulk move right now that I'm aware of though it's a good idea.

it's hard to make collection, it need patience, cause we can't filter by keywords in our own portfolio at adobestock. Very annoying.

I  still didn t   sync my ft  account with adobe - should I go to "get started" or to "sign in" on adobe site

@ferdinand follow the instructions to sync found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/contributor-fotolia.html

-Mat

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.


simple question  - "get started" or to "sign in" on adobe site - i still don t uderstand

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.

I tried to sign up (get started) but I was stopeted because my fotolia password does not have "uper case latin charachters " what to do in this situation?!!

if I understend well - my adobe and fotolia password doesn t have to bi the same one - so when i will be asked "am I fotolia contributer" only then I have to use my fotolia password - question is, will there be a condition for "uper case latin charachters " - am i right?

You didn't find the Insights page, my statistics. Sales in order of latest, graph, earnings, downloads, activity. Pick dates to see month, daily, annual sales. I'd like to see sales for best seller and history totals for images like you. We need a sort for making collections and editing. What use does weekly rank do for sales or help?

...What use does weekly rank do for sales or help?

I want weekly & overall rank to move over to Adobe Stock although I doubt they'll do that. Weekly rank in particular is very useful - if you have a great week and your rank doesn't improve, then it means the site was having a great week and the rising tide floated all boats, or at least  yours. If you have a lousy week and your weekly rank stays about the same, then the reverse - the site was down overall about as much as you were. And similar helpful guidance if your weekly rank tanks or skyrockets. Bottom line is that it helps you see the things you might need to do something about versus those that are site wide.

Like looking at last weeks weather to see what it will be like next week? I can see how you check if you are up or down as a site or personal but I can't see how watching the rank has anything to do with future sales or better income or what to work at. I don't think rank is very important for business. I want a search for editing, a way to see earnings by image and type of content, sales amounts. Patting my ego over rank is like counting how many photos do I have. Just a number.

While being logged in to Fotolia I opened an Adobe account and then synced.

https://helpx.adobe.com/stock/contributor/help/contributor-fotolia.html states:

Quote
1. Go to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal.
2. Select Get Started to create an Adobe ID, or choose I already have an Adobe ID to sign in.
3. Select Yes, Im a Fotolia Contributor to sync your Fotolia account. You will be prompted to enter your Fotolia login and password.

At no point I was asked if I'm a Fotolia contributor and they didn't ask for my Fotolia password. Is this to be expected because I was logged in to Fotolia? My Fotolia rank shows up in my Adobe Profile and my images seem to be there. Am I good to go or do I still need to contact contributor-support[]adobe.com

A note to myself (may be helpful to others, because I found it hard to find the correct login page to fotolia) https://www.fotolia.com/Member/Login

Yes, that information would be very helpful to see on Adobe Stock.

Here's where you can find Activity - Downloads, Earnings, Withholding (then selected by) Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Yearly. The bottom number is the start, the top number is current date. Then it shows what you selected and a graph. Below right is downloads, most recent on top and the commission paid for that download.

https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/insights

Yes I'd like some kind of a filter/search to find easier for editing keywords in my portfolio or for collections. That's  https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/en/portfolio

Data for individual files like total sales and total earnings would be helpful.

On the new adobe upload page, you are asked about 'recognisable property'. If you say 'yes', you are prompted to choose or upload a release, so what are you supposed to do with recognisable property that doesn't require a release?

It doesn't feel right to say 'no' to the question when there clearly is some recognisable property in the image.

Recognizable property requires a release. Answer yes and attach a release. If you are posting a picture of some unidentifiable patch of land in the middle of nowhere, dont attach a release. Say no.

I agree with most but rank does nothing to me. I was 15,000 last week, I'm 14,500 this week, next week I'm 15,500 what important do I learn from that? Rank doesn't pay me any money. Rank doesn't show me whats selling. I want statistics and info on my images, money, sales, income, what download type.

What I am saying is that if I take a picture of The Houses of Parliament in London, everyone will recognise this as The Houses of Parliament, but I don't need a release for it.  Do I just tick 'no', or forego uploading that image because I couldn't get a release from The Prime Minister of England?!!  :D

In that case say no and send it to see what they say.

Yeah, that's kind of what i figured, but iI just find the wording a little odd. I wish it would just ask 'Do you need a release?'

Indeed. It would be better just to ask if you have or not releases. If you say no and they say you need it then it's okay... I wish Adobe Stock accept photos without releases. I knoe they are going to have editorial but something more news and photojournalism related, not actually "photos without release". My main income is from that :/

I have been sticking with the FT upload portal for exactly this reason - wasn't sure what to do about public buildings or other property that doesn't require a release.  There has not been a change in the review criteria when uploaded through FT so I assume we are to interpret "recognizable" as "recognizable that requires a release" unless they tell us otherwise.

I think I will also stick with the Fotolia interface until we have clarification on this point. I prefer not to answer questions inaccurately until we have a definitive answer, so I'll just let an inspector kick them back if they think a release is needed.

Yes, this is correct. Only click yes if the recognizable property requires a release.
