I think Fotolia is awesome! My sales keep growing. Abode/Fotolia is the future of stockimages!

Almost all my sales at Adobe/FT are subs.  Lots of them, but almost never get credit sale there anymore.

I see the same but friend has seen increase in money. From subject, looks like some do better then others with the change.

On a 5,000+ portfolio I am having double the sales than pre-Adobe. Payouts are much more frequent for me. Rejections are up. But I am very happy with the progress.  ::)

If I got gold rank at Fotolia maybe my earning will bw able to match SS.

Just can't wait to get gold rank!

I am very happy with Adobe takeover!

Has anybody noticed this, the sales are up no doubt but the rates the very low, almost 99% sales are sub with only .18 commission. Finger crossed for a jump up in rates as well...

For me fotolia has always come in cycles: 20 downloads in 2 days and then nothing for a couple of days, or weeks.
Which of course makes me think about their search engine.

And I hate it when the agencies search engines are being manipulated. Which they are.

All of them.

its not decent-Like if you are a farmer and sell corn cubs in your local store, you can walk in and see where they are placed in the shop.
For us photographers there is no such walk into the shop, to see how our goods are being placed, because all the agencies keep it ever  so secret.

I dont like that.

Since late September I'm also experiencing these weird waves of many sales/no sales, every time I get inspired and optimistic when sales start to pop in but then the drought comes back. I also feel the same search engine issues with SS since October, very uneven.

What I like about FT is their steady credit sales (always about 20-25% of all downloads for me), as well as some of their subs at a nice price.

Overall they keep improving indeed!

Yeah, I like that too, that you can get sub sale at high price. I had one for 5$ recently. And two 1,32 and one 0.99 today.

Cant really agree by its very nature a search engine is a manipulation it has to prioritise somehow so its a question of what is perceived as fair  and the big supermarkets TOTALLY manipulate their displays to the point of charging for prime end of line slots OK suppliers can see it but their is nothing they can do about it. (Handy hint look at the top and bottom of shelves for better value brands ;-) )
