I recently purchased two extended license adobe stock photos and have completed my composition (which also includes other manipulated cco photos). I am now a little confused about the copyright process. Is it still possible to copyright this work which also includes the Adobe stock photos? Or is there a more appropriate way to do this. Thank you and kind regards.

Are you looking to give credits for the images used?
Also, you may use the license for any work that you're doing. If you'll be creating some work for a different client then you'd need to purchase a separate license for the same image.
Please see Stock Licensing & terms FAQ: Where can I find the terms and licensing information for Adobe Stock? for more details.
Hi Sheena, you have answered one of my questions thank you. However, I am still confused about copyrighting. If I want to copyright my work how would I do this if my work also contains Adobe stock images?
If you're purchasing extended license then you can use the asset in email marketing, mobile advertising, social media, or a broadcast program along with the asset can be featured in merchandise or products for resale.
Let me know if I've misunderstood you.
Hi sheena, yes i am using it for resale. Thank you
Great! You can definitely use them for resale with the extended licenses.
Hello! I also composited two Adobe Stock images to make a new concept to go along with an editorial article we wrote. We do not intend to sell it, but use it to promote the article. How should we handle copyright then?
We already purchased two standard licenses (one for each image)
I am not a lawyer so what do I know... anyway... When you use (with a license) copyright material in your own work, the resultant work retains all the original copyrights, and adds your copyright. This is usually a non-issue as few people today register copyright. It's automatically granted in most countries.
The licensing terms apply. You may use them for your article, using them for other means depends on that means. The (c) of the original work is owned by the original creators. You acquired a licence to use the assets according to the terms laid out on the Adobe website. You own the copyright on your own work. Copyright is owned by creation.

(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).
Thanks! Does a Standard License permit the work to be distributed on a platform such as "EurekaAlert" where our story (and the accompanying credited image) can be picked up by other news outlets?
As I do not know the plattform, nor other details of what you intend to do, I suggest you studdy the licensing terms and consult your IP lawyer on the details.
However, if you distribute the picture for press releases, I would expect that you need extended licenses.
