My opinion seems to change quite a bit about Fotolia. I must not be the only one because both customers and contributors seem to have a lot to say about Fotolia too. Some of it isn’t very kind either. With all that said, I thought it would be nice to organize my reviews and articles about Fotolia all in one place.
My first impression of Fotolia was fairly positive, but I wasn’t earning a whole lot there.
I started earning a lot more at Fotolia, so I decided to give it a second review.
Fotolia simultaneously raised prices while lowering royalties. The change ended up working for me, but a lot of members weren’t pleased about the reduced royalty.
Vector Pricing Change
Not too much for me. Fotolia is holding strong as my number 4 micro site, but I haven’t uploaded any of my new files since their vector pricing change. They haven’t re-priced my old files (which is good), so I haven’t had to consider deleting anything.
Right now, I’m not a big fan of Fotolia, but who knows… my opinion will probably change, again.
