Fotolia Ultimate Review

By Cory • May 21st, 2009 • Category: Reviews

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.

First Impression
My first impression of Fotolia was fairly positive, but I wasn’t earning a whole lot there.

Second Review
I started earning a lot more at Fotolia, so I decided to give it a second review.

Pricing Change
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

In a complete head scratching move, Fotolia slashed prices for vector files. This caused me to just stop uploading there.

What’s New?
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.
