The name Adobe in Adobe Stock cannot be unfamiliar to you as they have decades of experience providing the world with all kinds of software for creating and editing multimedia. Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Lightroom, XD, you name it.

The software is offered through cloud-based programs, and a lot of them integrate Adobe Stock to provide creatives with photos and video footage.

Do you see the opportunity there? Thousands and thousands of users browse the pictures on Adobe Stock on a daily basis, looking for the perfect image to integrate with their designs, blogs, articles, etcetera.

This convenient integration with their software works both ways. They have made it very easy for contributors to directly upload from Adobe Lightroom CC and Adobe Bridge CC. Uploading is also available through their web interface if you prefer that or don’t own the Adobe software.

The path from your images to the customer’s computers is almost a straight line.

Adobe pays you via PayPal or Skrill. You will have to make at least $25 in royalties before you can request a payment.

Signing Up

To become a contributor is quite easy. Register for an Adobe account, sign in, and upload. You do have to be at least 18 years before you can apply.
They do, of course, want to maintain a certain quality standard, so all uploads will be reviewed by a team of trained reviewers that will evaluate your contribution.


The fact that Adobe Stock is an integral part of the Adobe Creative Cloud Plan holds the promise of having a lot of potential customers.

I Like It 

That integration is exactly why I like it. 
I haven’t tried it though, but as soon as I do, I will let your know.
