Learn how to use the Contributor portal to market images, vectors, and videos to millions of buyers right inside their Adobe Creative Cloud applications.

Set up your contributor account

Visit contributor.stock.adobe.com and sign in with your Adobe ID. If you don’t have an Adobe ID, you’ll need to sign up first.

If you’re already a Fotolia user, you can access your existing catalog of images via the Contributor portal by syncing your accounts. This will be your only opportunity to do so.

Upload content

Before you can start uploading files, you need to agree to the Legal guidelines. You must be at least 18 years old and own the rights to all content you upload.

After that, you can upload the images, vectors, and videos you’d like to sell.

Tag your content

Add titles, categories, and keywords to your images. To streamline this process, Adobe Stock suggests keywords for your content that you can edit.

If your answer to the question "Does your file show recognizable people and/or property?" is Yes, you’ll need to upload a model release or a property release. If you already have a previously uploaded release, you can search for and select it from your list of releases. Otherwise, click Create a new release and then Download template to download the release and, when completed, upload it as a JPEG file.

Submit images for review

Once you fill in all fields, submit your content for review. When it’s accepted, your content will be available for sale on the Adobe Stock website and within most Creative Cloud applications, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Premiere Pro.

Review and manage your content

At any time, you can delete content, upload more content, or edit tags. You can also check the number of views and sales and the earnings your content has generated.

Get paid for your content

To receive payment for licensed imagery, you can request a payout once your account accrues $50 in earnings. Payouts are made via PayPal or Skrill.
