Audio-Interview with Paul Melcher about Adobe’s Acquisition of Fotolia

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON FOTOLIA - 2020.01.01Fotolia has closed in 2019 and no longer exists as a stand-alone agency. You can still find all their images in Adobe Stock‘s library.

More importantly, you can switch your Fotolia account to Adobe Stock, transferring all your existing credits and unused image downloads, so you don't miss out in downloads you already paid for.

I took the chance of Adobes announced acquisition of Fotolia for $800M in cash, to start a new interview series with other industry experts. So I reached out to long time market expert Paul Melcher, know for his Thoughts of a Bohemian and magazines.

In the audio interview, we discuss the Adobe acquisition of Fotolia that was announced this week and how it is likely to impact both, the Adobe customers as well as the stock imagery market in general. The deal is certainly the most discussed topic at the moment.

Paul is sharing his thoughts about how the deal could make sense for Adobe as an additional offer integrated into their market leading software products. He also explains how it will help Fotolia to become a widely known platform for imagery through this deal. I shed light on the contributor perspective and how this be a positive change for all of us (more on this here on MyStockPhoto)

Now sit back and relax and either watch (on Youtube or below) or hear the 20+ minutes interview (sorry to be so lengthy this time).
