Hi Mates

Anyone trying Adobe stock ? I see no rating in Microstock poll
I closed my fololia account some time ago.

Should i start uploading to Adobe stock or is the fotolia site still a good option ?

I like Adobe's uploading better, and Fotolia's stats are better. So, I guess both?

I thought adobe stock is Fotolia? Aren't all my files from fotolia on adobe stock too? Maybe I am wrong...
I'm only uploading to SS these days so I may be out of the loop.

I started selling footage on Adobe Stock recently and have had a few nice sales. Their review time is super quick and the share of profits seems decent so far (can vary depending on whether the sale is through Adobe CC or Fotolia).

I don't think you can create a new Fotolia account anymore - uploads all go via an Adobe CC account now.

If you have a Fotolia account (in your case, if you ask them to re-open yours) you can upload to either site and the content will appear on both:

http://www.microstockgroup.com/fotolia-com/adobe-stock-contributor-site-now-live!/msg464778/#msg464778

I believe they have shut down adding contributors via Fotolia and that can only be done via the Adobe site.

I'm seeing good sales through Adobe Stock/Fotolia (restarted contributing there in December). I'd definitely say it's worth it - second only to SS at the moment (for me)

Yes do, they are on the up and are now treating contributors better than in the FL days. It is just a shame they haven't reinstated accounts of people who were unfairly banned under the old regime.

I joined Adobe stock 3 months ago. Now with some 400 images, I earn around 150 euro a month. It is a bit disappointing because I get twice as much at 123rf, with the same amount of images. Looking at the Poll results on the right and comparing numbers for 123 and Fotolia, I was hoping for a better result. But it is better than nothing, I guess..

If you're getting 300 euro a month from 400 images on 123rf, you're doing better than over 99% of us.

To be fair, it didnt happen overnight. I joined 123 about one and half year ago and my monthly earnings were growing slowly at first, it took about six months to get 100 dollars monthly, then the growth was faster. Now Im getting between 250-350 USD a month there, in the recent six months. I put only the better part of my portfolio there, the proven good-sellers.

Wow! That's impressive, I have about that many images but make a fraction of that. Would love to see your port but if I were you I wouldn't share ;)

My images already get copied a lot. I draw people and animals and I often see crippled versions of my images under Similar images in Shutterstock search results. It is like a plague  :( But sincerely, I am surprised to do so well at 123rf, as people here generally report lower earnings at this agency. I suppose vectors sell better than photos there? I dont have the same success with other agencies though - Dreamstime is doing poorly for me, iStock was never good for me even in the "better days", Depositphotos was poor (but I stopped uploading there ages ago..). It seems certain portfolio may fit customers at certain agency and I was lucky with 123.

Well, you're obviously smart AND talented. Good luck, I hope you continue to do well.

Ive had a few sales at Adobe Stock but I do have an extremely small portfolio there. If only they would fix their upload process. So many of my photos just don't go through when I submit them.

So just to confirm, if I have an account on fotolia already there is no need to open one for Adobe Stock, since they are one in the same?

No need to open an account on the other site. The images uploaded to either site are available for sale on both. At some point you may need to open an Adobe account if they stop letting you use the Fotolia one but presumably there will be plenty of warning if that happens.

Fotolia with Adobe stock is great! I have some 3000 images with them and I get approx $.800 a month give or take. At the moment they are riding high mainly because SS is producing poor results for many but yes they are good.

I can strongly recommend them.

Either that's a typo, or you have a low threshold for what constitutes 'great'!  ;)

They are far from great for me.  They seen to be good for some people and not very good for others.  Never worked out why they don't seem to have an even playing field.

"These 70 pictures represented around 80% of my SS income and sold in hundreds every single day for the past five years and I mean hundreds every day." so you were making $12,000 a month...I wonder why you hate SS so much?
