Using the Adobe Stock website

Learn how to use the Adobe Stock website to explore and license stock assets.

Adobe Stock is a service that provides designers and businesses with access to millions of high-quality curated and royalty-free photos, videos, illustrations, vector graphics, 3D assets, and templates for all their creative projects. You can purchase Adobe Stock as a multi-asset subscription. Various subscription packages are available.

You can explore, preview, and license assets using either the Adobe Stock website or from within the Creative Cloud apps integrated with Adobe Stock.

Opomba:

Adobe Stock is deeply integrated with several Creative Cloud apps, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Dreamweaver, and After Effects. If you're looking for information on using Adobe Stock from within these apps, see Using Adobe Stock in Creative Cloud apps.

  4. Optionally, filter the search results. You can filter the results by price, sub-category, presence of people, image orientation, color, and so on.

The search results are displayed as soon as you adjust the filter parameters.

  5. When you've found a stock asset of interest, download its licensed version to your computer.

    Opomba:

    Stock allows you to auto-save assets to a library of your choice, and auto-download them to your machine. Both of these functionalities are enabled by default.

    To license and download an asset, do the following:

    a. Click the asset of your choice to get the detailed description page.

    b. Click License next to the asset.

  6. Import the downloaded stock asset into your design or authoring app.

Notes:

  • You may want to preview several watermarked stock assets on the Adobe Stock website before you download the licensed version of the one most appropriate for your project.
  • Instead of downloading the licensed version of the asset, you can choose to download just a preview of it to your device. To do so, in Step 5 above, click the Download Preview icon.

While exploring assets on the Stock website, you can open them directly in supported Creative Cloud apps. Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and After Effects currently support this functionality.

  4. When you've found a stock asset of interest, open it directly in your Creative Cloud desktop app of choice. Follow these steps:

    Click the asset. Click Open in App to the right of the asset.
