Hi guys, I am selling digital downloads on Etsy, can i use arts from adobe stock ( the free one) in my projects for selling ?
I've moved this from the Using the Community forum (which is the forum for issues using the forums) to the Stock forum so that proper help can be offered.
@Sashah the Free assets offered fall under the Standard License terms. I think the key would be whether the image is the primary value of the project you're selling on Etsy. Take a look at the excerpt from the License Information and Terms page. https://stock.adobe.com/ca/license-terms#standardLicenses
Most Adobe Stock photos, vectors, and illustrations come with a Standard license. With a Standard license, you may:

Hopefully this helps clarify things for you.
Paid or free, you can use the assets according to the licensing terms. You can use the assets for client work, but there are limitations. As “your projects for selling” is quite generic, I really would urge you to read in depth the licensing terms.
Look here for more information on licensing: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock/links-for-licensing-terms/td-p/11366788
(Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based on reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee).
Thank you all for replying me. Using some of the components from a vector art, for example I am making wall art for kids room and I want to use a fruit character from adobe free assets, like I am not using the asset as whole, I just need few components from it. Is this allowed ?
My interpretation @Sashah (and like Abambo, I am not an Adobe employee and only offering my understanding) is that in your instance, the fruit character would be part of the primary value of your wall art, whether you are using the whole asset or just part of it. I look at it from the perspective of your customers - would they buy your wall art without the fruit character? If yes, then you probably don't need the character in the first place. I think in your instance, you would need to purchase an extended license.
Again, just my interpretation. I am neither a lawyer nor an Adobe employee.
Good luck with your sales.
There is no difference if you use only part of an asset or the whole asset. If it fits into the licencing terms, it is allowed to use part of the asset. However, from a distance and without knowing exactly your case, it's very difficult to give correct advice. You really should read the licencing terms.
