Thank you very much for you help I'm a little confused on how Stock works with team members.
I would like to use Stock for teams. I currently don't have any adobe products and neither do my employees.
So let's pretend I buy an Adobe Stock for Teams subscription just for me and I become the administrator.
Question: Can I invite my employees to join my team and give them access even if they are not paying for any adobe products?
I guess what I am saying is do my employees have to be adobe paying customers to be able to join my team and access stock photos?

If Adobe Stock is your only team product then your team members would either need to be secondary administrators for your team or you would need to add Creative Cloud or additional Stock subscriptions to your team and assign your team members to one of these products.
I'm trying to create a Stock team as affordable as possible? How do I do that? .........ultimately I would just like to buy one Stock team subscription for my business to use.
Let's say I start with the 29.99 teams plan that includes 10 assets. I can just make all my employees secondary admins, they can access the assets (even if they are not adobe customers) and that's that?
Thank you for your help I don't know why this whole teams thing is so confusing to me. .ha ha
Thanks for reaching out to the Adobe Stock community.
Yes, after you create a team's account, you can give the secondary admin's right to the individuals you wish to and they can access the assets even if they are not Adobe customers, however, purchasing a team subscription does not ensure that the users will be able to access the assets. You(the admin) need to assign your Adobe Stock licenses and the CC products to each of your team members or delegates (you wish to add those licenses to). It is compulsory for the admin to activate the licenses by assigning it to the users, only then can they access the purchased images.
Also, in order to purchase a Team's subscription please follow the steps as shared below:
Log in with the Adobe ID which you have created> Go to My plans> Select any plan from the page(For Eg: 10 assets per month)> As the popup arises, click on Start a new team option and enter a business email and click on continue.
Once the purchase has been made, the admin is taken to the overview page from where he can get started with the team's subscription.
Under the Overview page, there is an option "Assign Users" (from which you need to assign licenses to the users so that they can access the licenses).
Hope this information helps!
Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.
So let's see if I finally got it.
1. I purchase 1 adobe stock team license.
2. I assign my employees as secondary admins.
3. I then need to assign each user (my employees) to the adobe stock team license that I purchased
So overall, I just purchase 1 adobe stock team license for my business, basically follow the steps you guys have laid out and I should be good to go?
I don't need any additional licenses but just the 1 for all my employees to use. I don't need other CC products.
Do i got it right?
Yes, you are correct, you need to assign each user (your employees) to the Adobe stock team licenses that you have purchased.
Also, suppose you have 9 people in your team(including you) and you want to assign 10 assets to each of them, you would need to go to the plans page and select the required subscription as 10 assets per month plan, then select the quantity as 9.
So, you will have a total of 90 licenses in this case and each user will be assigned 10 assets.
Hope this helps!
Thank you very much for your time and all your help . I finally get it now ha ha.
So Adobe stock, from a teams pespective, seems way more affordable and painless compared to the other stock photo companies out there. most other stock companies charge more for each user which makes it expensive.
I like how you guys do it. Adobe Stock is more affordable from a team perspective and your model makes sense. ......... Add more members. Use more images. Out grow your subscription . Upgrade to a bigger subscription to get more images.
Plus, making Adobe Stock for teams affordable makes for a nice lead-in to other CC products. This seems like a smart way to go about things.
Anyways thanks again
You are welcome!
Your steps are not quite correct.
The stock subscription you choose will depend on how many licenses you think your team will need per month. For example, 10 images a month may be a good choice for your team if you only need a few images now and then. Unused images will roll over to the next month and you would have an annual cap of 120 images. Your monthly quota expires after one year from issue. If you use more than 10 images a month you can buy additional images for a minimal fee.
No worries, J.W., it is a bit confusing. Please note that secondary admins will have the same permissions as a primary admin and the same access to the Team Admin Console.
