How to sell 50.000 Mobile Stock Photos – Interview with 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.

Do mobile stock photos really sell? Can I use a photo from a smartphone in a advertisement or on my social channels? Is the quality good enough to use it in print campaigns? I was skeptical as well but I have start selling my images via the Fotolia Instant app (our Review) with some success. Mobile photography was a big topic on the photokina 2014 in cologne and we had a chance to interview Fotolia's Head of Mobile, Morgan David de Lossy and Murat Erimel (Marketing and PR Fotolia).

Fotolia sold more than 50.000 Mobile Images
