Adobe Stock is essentially an image stock library embedded in Adobe apps and services, and you choose a subscription plan that offers a certain number of royalty free image downloads, starting at $29.99/£19.99 per month for 10 assets with bigger allowances and credit packs available. It’s convenient, but not exactly cheap.
But Adobe’s new Creative Cloud Pro Edition comes with unlimited Adobe Stock access and the company’s library of 200 million ‘standard assets’ including images, vectors and illustrations.
That’s a huge potential cost saving, but it’s currently only available to teams and enterprises of five or more users. It’s an extension of Adobe’s Creative Cloud for Teams plan, which is administered centrally with enhanced user management. The Pro plan is not for individual photographers or designers.
The biggest advantage of the Creative Cloud Pro Edition will be for companies specialising in graphic design, product design, marketing materials etc that require ready-made imagery for mockups and finished layouts.
Adobe Stock images are also useful for photographers who composite artworks and illustrations, but individual photographers will only have access to the regular Adobe Stock plans.
