Adobe Now Supplies Terrible Stock Images Straight Into Photoshop

By Chris Mills on at

If you’re in the habit of using Shutterstock to find terrible filler photos, there’s a new option: Adobe Stock, a 40-million-strong stock image library from the same people who make Photoshop.

Stock was unveiled today alongside a raft of new updates to Adobe’s entire Creative Cloud range, including updates to Photoshop and Premiere, and a bevy of new Android apps. Following Adobe’s pricing trend of subscriptions rather than one-off payments, Stock is mostly centred around monthly payment options: 10 images a month for £29.99, or 750 a month for £119.99. You can buy individual photos, for £5.99 a pop.

That’s pretty steep, although if you’re an existing Creative Cloud subscriber, that 10-images-a-month option costs just £19.99. That’s cheap, compared to the offerings from the likes of Getty and Shutterstock. And, of course, Stock integrates straight into Adobe’s photography software, a nicety the competitors can’t compete with. [Adobe via The Verge]
