Adobe Stock licensing terms

Hi,

I see that all Adobe Stock licences, including the Enhanced and Extended, have a clause that says 'May not distribute as a stand-alone file.' I would like to clarify what this means in practical application.

 

Our department puts out articles on Fifth Story, and each article needs one stock photo. The article and photo are downloaded from Fifth Story together as a zipped package by whoever is interested in publishing them either on their website or in their trade newsletter or mag (usually, it is industry-specific stakeholders).

 

Is this considered stand-alone, even though it is part of a package that says the image can only be used with the article and not other uses of the image are permitted?

If it is, what other types of licences (not mentioned on Adobe's website) could give us the rights to use it as described above?

Thanks

Kglad, by 'that's ok' you mean the use of the photos in this situation is fine if we get the Extended license?

thanks

yes, if you're licensed to use the stock photo, you can upload it in a package where it's used in a display, eg your article.

 

and yes, it's going to be easy for someone without a license to use that photo, but in your situation it's just slightly easier than using a photo in the more common situation where your article is posted online and contains that photo.
