Here we go again.

Another "strategic" partnership.

So what does this mean for contributors?

Will we be paid for the free images that Fotolia is giving away?

Who wants to volunteer and post a question on their forums?

Dont knock Fotolia!!  very good site at the moment . Hope this partnership will grow into something.

yeah,  I would have to agree that fotolia seems to be really producing lately - nice to see.  I can see them becoming my top site some time next year.  That said, they are not the best communicators - we are often told about what is happening after it has happened or not at all

sales are great
communication is poor

nice to see the press release though.

They say it is free but I presume the cost will be in the web hosting fees.  It wouldn't benefit FT to give away credits.

1and1 is associated since 2006 with Fotolia.
and seems to be 25% bonus there !;

I presume the cut here is from Fotolia part... I won't blame Fotolia bringing new customers.
