See descriptions of Adobe Stock content categories so you can choose the right one for your assets.

Adobe Stock uses categories to help customers zero in on the content that will best fit their needs. When you upload files to the Contributor portal, Adobe Stock uses Adobe Sensei technology to automatically suggest categories for you. You can go with those suggestions or choose different categories. And if you don't find a category that perfectly describes your content, just pick the closest one.
