Information for Fotolia contributors

As of November 5, 2019 Fotolia is closed. At this time you can still sync your Fotolia account with Adobe Stock.

How to sync your account

As a former Fotolia contributor, you can access your Fotolia account data on Adobe Stock by syncing your Fotolia account when you sign in to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal for the first time. To sync your account, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal.
  2. Select Get Started to create an Adobe ID, or choose I already have an Adobe ID to sign in.
  3. Select Sync my Fotolia account. You will be prompted to enter your Fotolia login and password.


Consult this FAQ to answer questions you may have about syncing your Fotolia account to Adobe Stock.

No. All of your accepted content from Fotolia remains available at Adobe Stock whether or not you have previously synced your Fotolia account with Adobe Stock. Syncing your Fotolia account allows you to upload new content and manage your existing content in addition to viewing your sales and submitting payment requests.  

The minimum payment amount for large subscription packs is determined by the volume of sales you have accumulated. Sales that originated at Fotolia prior to the closure DO apply to your Adobe Stock contributor account. Details can be found here

At this time, there are no plans for exclusive content for standard images, vectors, and videos.

Your content is no longer available to license through Fotolia and is only available for licensing at Adobe Stock. 

If you don’t wish to continue as a contributor, you can close your Fotolia account and request a final payout by contacting contributor support. There is no minimum earning requirement for final payouts.


This could occur if you have more than one Fotolia account and the email address you used for your Adobe ID is associated with a Fotolia account that doesn’t have any content. Please contact Contributor Support to sync your Adobe Stock account with the correct Fotolia account.

Please contact Contributor Support to resolve the issue.

Please contact the 3rd party app developer to confirm compatibility with Adobe Stock. As a reminder, you can upload directly on the Adobe Stock Contributor portal using drag and drop, or through FTP. We also support direct uploads from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Bridge. For more information, see Upload your Content.
