Subscriptions offer a great deal on the price of standard asset licenses. When you subscribe, you get a set number of standard licenses per month, and you can either use them right away or roll them over to use in subsequent months (if your subscription plan allows roll-over).
A subscription includes all standard Adobe Stock assets (i.e., standard images, 3D models, and templates). It does not include Premium assets (i.e. Premium images, Premium templates, Premium 3D assets) or Editorial assets or Videos, nor does it include extended licenses for standard assets.
You can purchase assets that are not part of subscription plans separately on an as-needed basis.
If you don't use all your available asset licenses in a given month, some Adobe Stock subscription plans will roll those unused licenses over to the next month. Each plan has a limit on the total number you can roll over, and all unused licenses expire after one year. If you cancel your subscription, you'll lose any unused licenses.
You can always purchase and use as many assets as you want. Once you've used up your subscription allotment, you can pay separately for additional licenses at a discounted price.
Some subscription plans come with a free trial period of one month. You can cancel the plan within that first month without any charge, but if you continue the plan you'll be billed monthly for the contract amount you've selected.
You can purchase a subscription plan, a credit pack, or both. Subscription plans are designed for customers who need typical images, templates, and/or 3D models at lowest prices. Credit packs are designed for customers who need Videos or other Premium assets.
You can use your credits to license any and all content on Adobe Stock. Different asset types have different credit costs. If you need a lot of standard images, standard templates, and/or standard 3D assets, you'll probably want to buy a standard subscription.
If you purchase a team subscription plan, you may share standard assets with the members of your team. Check out our Teams page for details.
Standard licenses allow you to use the licensed image perpetually, but your print runs can't exceed 500,000 copies and you can't use the image on items that will be resold. (For example, you can't print it on a coffee mug that someone is going to sell). The print run limit doesn't apply when the image is only for display on websites, social media, or mobile applications. If you're going to do a large print run or use the asset in a resale scenario, you'll need to purchase an extended license. Note that extended licenses are not included in Adobe Stock subscription plans.
If you cancel your subscription, you'll lose access to the Adobe Stock service. You'll forfeit your unused licenses.
No, you don't need any other Adobe product to use Adobe Stock. However, there are a number of benefits to using Adobe Stock with other Adobe Creative Cloud products, such as the ability to preview, edit and license in Adobe Photoshop CC before completing your purchase.
You can purchase a new credit pack or buy more asset licenses as you need them.
If you reside outside of Japan, unused credits automatically expire 12 months from the date of purchase. If you are a resident of Japan, unused credits automatically expire 6 months from the date of purchase.
