Getting started | Adobe Stock for Fotolia members

Start using Adobe Stock now with your Fotolia account – it’s quick, simple, and you will still be able to access all your important account information on Fotolia such as lightboxes, shopping cart, and licenses history. What’s more, you get to use Adobe Stock with your Fotolia credits or downloads, which Adobe is converting to give you even more high-resolution images – you don’t even have to enter your credit card details!

If you’re an eligible Fotolia customer, you can transfer your account in three easy steps and use your remaining credits or downloads, or both on Adobe Stock. As a bonus, you get at least 2x the number of HD files that you would on Your Fotolia credits and downloads will be valid for one year from the time you transfer over to Adobe Stock.

Simply sign in to your Fotolia account and then follow the instructions at the top of the page. The transfer takes just a few minutes and includes your current lightboxes, shopping cart, and license history — with unlimited downloads of past purchases. If you’re not able to initiate the transfer online, contact your local Customer Support to discuss your options.

Here’s how to get started - it takes only a few minutes:

  1. Sign in to your Fotolia account as normal, and click the Let’s Go button.

    Click Let's go

  2. You’re asked to create an Adobe ID or enter an existing one. Also, on this page, you can see what all are being imported from your Fotolia account to your new Adobe Stock account.

    It also states how many credits or downloads are being transferred. Don’t panic if you see fewer credits than you had before on Fotolia – this is normal as credits are worth more on Adobe Stock!

    For each Fotolia download you have, you can download TWO standard Adobe Stock high-resolution assets.

    For credits, Adobe is converting 5 Fotolia credits to 1 Adobe Stock credit. One Adobe Stock credit gives you ONE Standard Adobe Stock high-resolution image (that’s at least twice the number of hi-resolution images than you’d get with Fotolia credits).

  3. If you do not have an Adobe ID, you need to create one.

    Once you click Confirm, the transfer process begins. The transfer time may vary depending on how many libraries you have but normally takes a few seconds.
