I was'nt sure but now after checking it seems like members who pay every month for the creative cloud need to pay even more for using the adobe stock. I'm not talking about massive use, just a single or couple assets from the stock. wasn't it free like.. 3 years ago? oh and btw, integrating with adobe's products is not a 'benefit' is kind of a minimum. Is there anyway that a membership can actually benefit users without making an additional subscription to Adobe Stock? Is there anyway that a membership can actually benefit with Adobe Stock' assets?
What is exactly your question? The benefits of a stock subscription? Or the benefits of Adobe stocks over competitors products?
Adobe stock is more tightly integrated into Adobe products. But apart from that, other stock providers are probably giving similar value for the bucks.
You only need a stock subscription if you have a regular need for stock images. Regular would mean around 120 assets/year. If your need is less than that, consider buying assets on the fly, when needed. For a short term need there is also the possibility to take a month by month subscription.
There is no financial advantage of having a CC subscription and taking an additional stocks subscription. That would be cool, however.
