Adobe’s newest offering, Adobe Stock launched in July 2015, read the review here. As part of a special promotion package, Adobe has an offering to give away 10 free images from their library with the creation of a brand-new Creative Cloud account. Considering that the images are otherwise $10 apiece, Adobe is giving away about $100 worth of images, completely free.
Every month, Adobe tells you that they promotion will end at the end of the month. Although they have been running this promotion month after month, there’s no telling when the promotion will really end. In other words, if you want to take advantage of getting 10 free images from Adobe Stock library, you need to act fast.
Adobe’s 10 Image Promotion Program.
With the creation of a brand-new Creative Cloud account, Adobe is offering 10 free downloads. That means you can browse the library, select 10 images and download them – completely free of charge. Each of these images comes with a royalty-free license, allowing you to use them for many commercial applications.
Royalty-free licenses are standard in the microstock industry. It means that once you choose an image, it will forever be tied to your account and you can use it again and again for commercial purposes without paying extra royalty fees. If you go get your credits today, your credits will not expire until you choose the images. When you’re ready to download your image, and you have an image chosen that image will never be taken away from your account. Use it once or use it 10 times, the image – for all intents and purposes – will be yours.
What Are They Really Giving You?
Adobe is giving away their standard licenses with these images. However, this also means the standard rules apply. You’re free to use the image on your blog, article or even as a still image for your video marketing strategy.
What Adobe is not giving away is what is considered to be an extended license. Royalty-free licenses have rules and extended licenses remove some of the restrictions. A common example includes using images for T-shirts, calendars or holiday cards. Generally speaking, royalty-free licenses allows you up to 499,999 separate and distinct impressions of the image before you must purchase an extended license.
How to Take Advantage of a Steep Adobe Stock Discount
Adobe gives you the option of taking advantage of a steep Adobe Stock discount when you create your Creative Cloud account. Here’s how it works.
When you create your Creative Cloud account, simply add one of their software titles to your subscription. You see, Adobe has shied away from the model where someone must pay a substantial fee to get unlimited use to one of their software titles – such as Photoshop. In the past, Photoshop has held a price tag of over $1000. Now, you can get full access to Photoshop for $20 a month – a much more affordable option for most people.
By adding one of their software titles to subscription, you’ll notice that the price that Adobe is charging for their Adobe Stock on your account will be steeply discounted. Without a software title, a standard subscription price for Adobe Stock will cost you $49.99 per month. However, if you were to add a software title that price becomes $29.99. Essentially, you’re receiving a $20 discount. Since Photoshop will cost you $20 a month, you can put Photoshop on your subscription without really raising the monthly cost.
The Advantage of Having a Creative Cloud Account.
In the past, Adobe has led the way in digital media manipulation. People who used Photoshop were able to import a photo and take full advantage of Photoshop capabilities. Therein lied the problem.
That Was Then.
In order for the users of Photoshop to have a photo to import, people either needed to take the photo themselves with their own camera or subscribe to a microstock agency. This means that they had to purchase the photo separately, save it to their computer and then import it into Photoshop. That was then.
This Is Now.
The advantage of having a Creative Cloud account now means that you can now browse Adobe’s microstock library without ever leaving the Photoshop program. In other words, you can open Photoshop and enjoy being able to browse for a photo and have it imported directly into Photoshop without ever leaving Photoshop. Adobe streamlined the process, saving people lots of time as a result.
Spread the Word.
The only question left to you is that whether you’re ready to take advantage of your 10 free images. As soon as you grab your 10 free images, spread the word. Adobe is giving away over $100 worth of free images to every new Creative Cloud user. Act now before it’s too late.
