Although the stock site has only been in the industry for a little over a year, it certainly has impressed the creative community. Adobe Stock has unique features that make it worth considering, especially for Creative Cloud users. You can work faster as you can search for the perfect image right inside your favorite CC desktop application. Not only that, you can also design comp images, license and manage them directly.
As a standalone website, anyone can access Adobe Stock’s library. Here are a few great things about the stock site that you should know:
- Did you know that it has one of the largest libraries in the market? Adobe Stock started with over 40 million images from Fotolia and the Dollar Photo Club. Then, it started accepting contributions from talented artists and photographers around the world. To date, the stock site has over 50 million stock footages and images.
- Wherever you are, you can certainly access the stock site. Adobe Stock is available in most countries and in 20 languages, read more about them here.
- An Adobe Stock license allows you to use the stock files anywhere in the world. You can use them in print, websites, social media sites, and presentations, but you may not distribute them in a way that people may use it without licensing them.
- An Adobe Stock license never expires. Standard license allows you to create 500,000 copies of the image or broadcast it to up to 500,000 viewers. You can also produce items for resale where the main value is the image itself, such as posters and t-shirts. On the other hand, an Extended license grants you the rights of the Standard license and removes the 500,000 copy restriction.
The launch of Adobe Stock has made the creative process easier for many creative professionals. It has helped Creative Cloud users save time and money by allowing them to design comp images before they make an actual purchase. Most of all, it has provided non-users with premium quality images to create their own masterpieces.
