Are you the owner of the image? And is the violation being done by Adobe (in the stock site)? If so you can send Adobe a DMCA takedown request. Adobe can't do anything if it is on some other site, or if you are a third party.

Thank you. I am not the owner of the image, and the violation was done by a
licensee of the image. If i understand you correctly, a third party has no
power to report a violation of the license agreement - which seems strange
to me. That would imply that the only mechanism is for the author/owner to
become aware of the violation. without a mechanism for third parties to
contact the author/owner, this vitiates the whole process.

But presumably not, as simply an interested third party? I observe that a DMCA notice must include "A certification, under penalty of perjury, that the DMCA notice is accurate, signed ... by the copyright owner or the copyright owner’s legal representative."
