See the Submission Guidelines for Adobe Stock Video templates for more details.

Fonts

We require all templates to utilize fonts from the Adobe Fonts service. The service allows users to access libraries and sync fonts to their desktops. The integration of Adobe Fonts in Adobe Creative Cloud apps eliminates the need to search for, download, and install additional files, while also guaranteeing high-quality, properly licensed fonts.

When selecting fonts for your template, avoid using fonts from the Adobe Font Marketplace as they require an additional purchase on top of Creative Cloud subscriptions.

Assets within templates

As a reminder, per your Adobe Stock templates Contributor agreement, you represent and warrant that you own — or have sufficient rights to — all IP in the content included within your template file, including all copyright, trademarks, rights of privacy, rights of publicity, and moral rights.

Elements may be used only if they are self-created: Contributors must own all rights to the assets used within their templates and have all necessary licenses and releases to use the assets. Contributors cannot use any stock content in templates. We also do not accept Creative Commons Zero (CC0) or public domain images as part of a template. This includes modifying a stock image so it’s no longer recognizable or using stock or modified stock for 3D textures. NASA CC0 images may be used for maps, globes, and textures.

Stock images may be used in the thumbnail image and preview video but may not be included in template.

Our Stock Contributor User Guide Legal Guidelines is a valuable resource for more information.

Text references

Avoid references to identifiable people, companies, and locations in templates, including the Adobe name, logo, or products. Substitute fictitious and generic names to represent any individuals, company or logo, and placements. Lorem Ipsum text is recommended for most placeholder text.

Examples: 

  • Names: John Smith, Jane Smith, Mary Doe, First Name Last Name
  • Companies: Your Company, Your Logo
  • Emails and websites: You@Example.com, www.YourCompanyURL.web
  • Phone numbers: 555-555-5555
  • Addresses: 123 Street, City, State 45678
  • Social media handles: @Username
  • Dummy text and paragraphs: Subtitle text, Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

Using generic text also makes it clearer that these text fields are placeholders only and are meant to be replaced by the user. 

Review process

Files are evaluated based on these criteria:

  • Legal standards: Do the files adhere to our IP and Legal guidelines?
  • Technical qualities: Is your template optimized for easy use and does it adhere to our specs?
  • Metadata: Are titles and keywords accurate and is the form correct?
  • Commercial value: Is your submission usable in the current marketplace?
  • Aesthetic properties: Is your template up to date with graphic and color trends?
  • Similarity: Is the content too similar to another Adobe Stock video template or something you’ve already submitted?

Rejection reasons

All templates submitted to Adobe Stock go through a review process to ensure that the content meets Adobe’s design and technical quality standards. 

Rejection reasons are provided as a courtesy. As stated in your Contributor agreement, we may reject or accept content at our discretion. To help you become a successful Adobe Stock template Contributor, we’ve listed some common reasons for rejection that you can avoid: 

 

Rejection reason

What it means

Template type

Resolution

Technical issues 

The template file is incomplete, corrupt, disorganized, or unclear enough to impact usability. 

 

MOGRT files, After Effects templates, and Premiere Pro templates

Refer to the app-specific guidelines to learn best practices for setting up your template file type, and to make sure that your file is technically impeccable and well-built.

Guideline issues

The template file does not conform to our template creation guidelines. Issues can include folder structure, incorrect formats, use of third-party effects, and similarity to other content.

 

MOGRT files, After Effects templates, and Premiere Pro templates

 

Refer to the app-specific guidelines to learn best practices for setting up your template file type.

Use of fonts other than those from Adobe Fonts

File contains fonts that are not available to sync from Adobe Fonts.   

 

MOGRT files, After Effects templates, and Premiere Pro templates

Navigate to the Adobe Fonts site and search by style to find a visually similar font. Use it to replace your previous font.  

Intellectual property (IP) violations of assets and use of non-generic text

An image, graphic, or text area in the file contains content that violates intellectual property guidelines.

MOGRT files, After Effects templates, and Premiere Pro templates

All images used in preview/thumbnail images should be licensed from the Adobe Stock Free Collection or wholly owned by the Contributor

 

As needed, provide a model release or property release for any recognizable subject in your content and pre-rendered media within your templates. Also, completely remove/scrub any recognizable branding, trademarks, or trade dress depicted in the content and in the layer naming.

Contributors should avoid using real names and references to identifiable people, companies, and locations in their templates and preview assets. We suggest using fictitious and generic names to represent individuals, companies, and logo placements, as mentioned in the above examples.

Using generic text also makes it clearer that these text fields are placeholders only and are meant to be replaced. 

 

Thumbnail or preview Issues

The preview assets either do not reflect the template or they give a false impression of the template's design or use case. They can also contain technical errors such as incorrect format, codec, or resolution.

 

MOGRT files, After Effects templates, and Premiere Pro templates

 

Revise video preview or thumbnail formatting to match the template and/or update the design to reflect the template's design or use case.

 

For more details, review the preview assets guidelines.

 

Performance issue

Playback and EGP updating is poor in Premiere Pro.

 

MOGRT files

Review optimization tips and revise the MOGRT file.

 

Legal basics

As with any other content submitted to Adobe Stock, Contributors must wholly own all rights to the assets within templates, including any necessary licenses and releases. Don’t submit files that don’t belong to you (e.g., photos your spouse took) or that incorporate items that are not yours, such as content found on the internet.

Contributors cannot use any stock content in templates they submit to Adobe Stock as the licenses offered by all stock sources restrict the redistribution of their images, videos, and other content. Generally, we also cannot accept Creative Commons Zero (CC0) or public domain images because Contributors must own all rights to a work, including licenses or releases for recognizable people or property. 

These requirements apply to all images, illustrations, and text being used within your templates and align with areas of law involving the rights of privacy and publicity, copyright, trademark, and trade dress.

Avoid using real names and references to identifiable people, companies, and locations in your templates. Use fictitious and generic names to represent individuals, companies, logo placements, and more. 

Submitting multiple copies of similar or identical content can be perceived as spam by our moderation team. Spamming is strictly prohibited and may prompt us to block or close your account.
