Adobe started providing stock photos directly to their creative cloud users in 2014 with the purchase of photo library Fotolia they have now added ‘approximately’ 100,000 hand-selected images to this offer with the launch of The Premium Collection. The collection includes a curated selection of their current stock photos by gallery and keyword phrase and direct collections from stock photo production houses Cavan Images and Image Source.
Adobe Stock say: “This collection was developed to serve customers who need authentic and high-quality commercial content with straightforward licensing plans. We launched with ten thematic categories that span across lifestyle, wildlife, food and industrial photography, as well as galleries that showcase the work of individual contributors. The deeper Adobe Stock integration now means you can select an image or video on the Adobe Stock website and place it into your work with a single click. Plus, we now have the industry-first one-click buy capability.”
• How is the Adobe Stock Premium collection different from Fotolia’s Infinite Collection?
The Adobe Stock Premium collection is being curated as an independent set of images and customer experience, although some images may appear in both collections as premium content.
• Can I contribute to the Premium collection?
At launch, the Premium collection represents a relatively small group of artists and agencies who have been hand-selected for their personal style and the quality of their work.
