Why I love Adobe Stock (And You Should Too!)

I have been using Adobe Stock for the last year. I was attracted because of the comprehensive integration with Adobe Creative Cloud. As a Creative Cloud subscriber, I can use Adobe Stock mainly with Adobe Muse. However, I can use it in conjunction with Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Premiere Pro and After Effects CC.

Adobe Stock is based on the $800 million acquisition last year of the stock art site – Fotolia.

Test with Watermarked Images

I can preview watermarked images in my Muse designs first. The ability to download and preview an Adobe Stock Image allows me to experiment and to get a sense of how different images will impact my mock-ups. These pictures provide the client with an opportunity to view their websites using high-quality professional stock.

Not only Stock Photography but also

I not only purchase photography but UI Comps, illustrations, textures, vector art. I can place an image or a piece of vector art on one of the web pages. If I need to edit the element, I can round trip out to the application I require complete my edits and return to Adobe Muse with finished artwork updated directly in my design.

As Adobe Stock is integrated into Creative Cloud, it works on a subscription model.

“85% of customers who buy stock images use Adobe Creative Tools.”
