General Information

By uploading your files to Fotolia, you are presenting your work to millions of image buyers around the world, 24/7. There are no registration or portfolio management fees, and you have the potential to earn thousands of dollars every month.

Selling creative files on Fotolia requires strict adherence to Fotolia's Terms and Conditions:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must be the author of all the files you upload
  • You must own, or have authorization for all the rights to the elements represented in your files (products, people, property ...)

When your files are sold, they can be used without limits on time or the number of copies printed. The customer may use a single file in multiple applications including advertising or marketing materials, press releases, articles, business documents, packaging, websites, and blogs. Extended (X) Licenses allow customers to use images on items for resale, such as t-shirts, calendars and other image-based products.

For every file sold, you will receive a royalty payout based on your portfolio exclusivity and ranking:

  • from 20% to 63% for content sold via single-image download
  • from 0.25 Credits to 0.40 Credits for content sold via Subscription download

Sales from Fotolia resellers via re-licensing will be granted the same royalty payout for single-image or Subscription downloads.

Please note: you will be asked to select the currency zone when you register on Fotolia. Please choose carefully, as once an account is validated, the zone cannot be changed.

You can decide to remove your files from the database at any time. In this case, your files may remain online and available for sale for 3 months. They are definitely removed after this period of 3 months.

Pricing Disclaimer

If Fotolia becomes aware that a non exclusive contributor with a rank of “Emerald” or above is distributing any images, vectors or videos (the “Works”) through another stock agency or website (where at least some of such Works are the same as the Works being distributed through Fotolia), and if the pricing charged on such other stock agency or website for the downloading of any of such contributor’s Works are comparatively lower than the pricing charged on Fotolia for downloading Works of “White” ranking contributors, then, subject to applicable law, Fotolia reserves the right, at its discretion, to lower the pricing of any of such contributor's Works offered through Fotolia so as to match the pricing for the Works of “White” ranking contributors on Fotolia. Subject to applicable law, Fotolia reserves the right to inquire, from time to time, with any given contributor with a rank of “Emerald” or above as to whether such contributor is distributing any Works through any other stock agency or website, and such contributor shall promptly provide this information to Fotolia. For clarity, Fotolia is under no obligation to make any such inquiries.
