Many creative professionals use Creative Cloud software applications to edit and retouch their images. What they do before is download the images and work on them with Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and other Adobe desktop apps. If you are a CC user, you will be happy to know that Adobe has launched its own stock site – Adobe Stock. Arguably, it has been a success considering the number of creatives who use the company’s software.
Adobe Stock, where you can read a review here, is a stand-alone website so both members and non-members of Creative Cloud can use it. It contains over 40 million stock content, including images, graphics and videos. You can find the perfect image for your next projects from the stock site’s library and premium collections. The most inspiring images from global contributors are waiting to be explored. Many artists have remade lost works of art using the website and CC apps. You can do find the perfect photo to create your own masterpiece, too.
Creative Cloud users have a huge advantage over non-members. You can access Adobe Stock photos from your favorite CC software. Whether it Photoshop or InDesign, you can access, manage and edit photos easily and quickly. You get to save more time and money, too. You can preview watermarked Adobe Stock photos inside your designs first before you purchase them. That means you can get your client’s approval before you make a purchase, saving you a lot of money.
You can also save a lot of time. Once you get your client’s approval, you can directly license the Adobe Stock photos from your CC app and replace the watermarked version with the full-resolution. That saves you from hours of rework. Time and money savings are only some of the benefits of a Creative Cloud member. The current Adobe Stock a la carte price and subscription plans are also a treat.
- If you only need one image for a one-time project, you’ll be happy to know that a single image costs $9.99. It comes with a standard license, so you can use it multiple times.
- There is also the 10 images/month annual subscription plan. This is a pretty a great deal today as you get the first month for free when you sign up. You can also cancel anytime within the first month risk-free.
- Other subscription plans include 350 images/month and 750 images/month for $169.99 and $199.99 respectively. These are annual plans paid monthly. If you need extra images, you purchase an additional image for $0.99 each.
Currently, Adobe Stock photos are only available on standard license, read more about it on this link. If you need extended license, you can check out Fotolia, a stock site managed by AS. Creative Cloud users like you will have more time and money for your creative projects because of this nifty integration.
