I can not add my unsold files to free section, though they are shown in my unsold files page. Can not find any dropdown menu. Have fotolia stopped the process? Please help. Attaching a scrrenshot of the page for your ready reference.

Why bother?  I hate giving images away for free, I wouldn't mind so much if the sites shared the money they make from this.  I really don't see what we gain, perhaps a few new buyers sign up but then we must be losing some sales because people find a free alternative.

This offer is no more available on Fotolia website. I remember asking them about this and their answer was that this is no more an option for the unsold files (for more than 24 months).

So what are we able to do with those files they throw in there that haven't sold in 2 years?  Just wondering as I'll see images in that section in June.  Can we just delete them?  Or are they still able to be sold?  But by seeing the state of the image color looks like pending.  Very confusing.

All photos, even those in the free section, are still available for sale. 

What I'd like to know is whether the pending unsold files are being automatically added to the free section, or if they will remain in the pending state until they open up the contribution channel again.

So I emailed FT with my question, and they only sent a canned response about how FT no longer pays to contribute images to the free collection, which of course I didn't ask about!   >:(  Why can't they just answer my question?

Because you're dealing with HAL 9000 remnants currently situated in Bombay! ;D

Indeed the free section is no longer operating and should never have been started. Initially, images were donated to the free section for a period of 18 months and the contributor received a once-only payment of $0.50. Then after a short term, FT unilaterally extended the period to 5 years without enabling a contributor that agreed to 18 months to withdraw from the extended time. Never give a commercial organization free images.
