Fotolia has announced that it will be shutting down its website on November 5, 2019, 14.5 years after its birth in 2005 and 5 years after it was acquired by Adobe for $800 million in cash in 2014.
The move comes after Adobe just completed fully integrating Fotolia’s content into its own stock service, Adobe Stock.
After it closes, Fotolia members will no longer be able to access their accounts, purchase credits and subscriptions, or upload and download content from the Fotolia website.
“After thirteen years in business, Fotolia will transition its members to Adobe Stock on a voluntary basis in order to offer them a better and more streamlined service as well as deeper integration within Adobe Creative Cloud applications,” Fotolia writes on its FAQ page. “The Core asset collection in Adobe Stock comes from Fotolia, so you’ll find the majority of the assets you love there.”
