Find an Adobe Stock asset from within your Creative Cloud application and try its watermarked version in your design or document. Buy it with a single click— it is replaced by a high-resolution version, and you don't have to redo your edits.
Easily search for assets directly in apps
Whether you are working on a design in Photoshop, Illustrator, or another Creative Cloud app, there’s no reason to break away from your project to search for Adobe Stock assets. In the Libraries panel, enter a keyword in the search field. Then select the down arrow, and select Adobe Stock from the menu to find assets. (If the Libraries panel is not open, choose Window > Libraries or Window > Adobe Creative Cloud Libraries).
If your app doesn't have a Libraries panel, see Search for and/or license your assets easily in these apps for specific ways to search or license Stock assets in your app.
