More than three years since Adobe Systems completed the acquisition of the Fotolia microstock agency, this service that provides more than 57 million high-resolution royalty-free images and videos has finally been integrated into Adobe Stock.

Fotolia made its debut back in 2005, when it started to deliver stock images to customers all over the world. A decade later, it was acquired by Adobe Systems but continued to operate as an individual service. Yesterday, Adobe announced that Fotolia will be shut down on November 5, 2019, but all the content and most of the features are already a part of Adobe Stock.

According to the official Fotolia blog, Adobe Stock brings together the images and videos previously available on Fotolia, as well as design templates, 3D assets, Premium Collection images from leading artists, as well as Editorial Collection content for areas such as sports, entertainment, and news. In addition to all these, Adobe Stock also delivers better search capabilities powered by Adobe's Sensei AI technology. 

Fotolia Contributors should migrate to Adobe Stock until February 5, 2019. On the other hand, Buyers can use their Fotolia accounts until November 5, 2019. After these days, they will only be able to use Adobe Stock. Fortunately, eligible customers can use the remaining Fotolia credits/downloads on Adobe Stock after the transition is complete.
