On this page, find details about royalties on photos, illustrations, vectors, and videos at Adobe Stock.

See this page for details about getting paid.

The royalty rate for photo, illustrations, and vector content licensed on Adobe Stock is 33% of the amount paid by the customer for the content. For video, the royalty rate is 35% of the amount paid. The amount paid varies based on the customer’s subscription plan and the type of content licensed. For payment on downloads made under subscription plans, a minimum guarantee applies that may replace the royalty rate calculation.  We also license content through custom agreements not reflected in the royalty table. Payment pursuant to custom agreements is always based on royalty rates of 33% for photo, illustrations, and vector content and 35% for videos.

Adobe calculates the royalties in ‘credits’ for which the following conversion is used:

1 credit = 1 USD = 1 EUR = 0.75 GBP = 4 PLN = 7,10 SEK = 150 JPY.

The royalty details in the tables below are shown in US dollars, for other currencies, please refer to above conversions.
