Fotolia Customer Review

Fotolia Customer Review

Review Updated: 2017

Fotolia boasts a very large image library and provides a lot of good reasons to entice buyers. Their pricing is very competitive for starters. The website itself is pretty straightforward, but provides surprising complexity for image searches if you want it. All the big artists are on board, so you are getting high quality content.

Fotolia provides photos, vectors and footage, with some exclusive content. Strangely at this stage Editorial content is not available.

The big news on the Fotolia front though is the buyout by Adobe in late 2014. Ever since then, Adobe Stock is getting all the attention and upgrades. Adobe made some good improvements to Fotolia though and the site continues to be popular with customers.
