I am just starting a new business and want to create a business card and a website with a single image. I have found one I like on Adobe Stock. I am thinking that if my business succeeds, I will be using the image for several years. So does that mean to use just the one image, I have to have a continuous plan with Adobe Stock and keep paying for that image every month for years to come? Can't I just buy a single image outright? And if I can't do that here, can anyone recommend a website where I can? I've looked at free sites like Pixabay, but most of the content is terrible. I am happy to pay for an image for my branding, but not every month for years on end! Advice please?

1st: You can’t use your stock image as a logo or similar. That’s not possible.
2nd: Any stock images you buy are yours on a perpetual basis even after cancelling the subscription if you have one. Even if you take the 10 images first month free, cancel risk free offer and after that first month you cancel, you can keep the 10 images and use them according to the license conditions on a perpetual basis.
So is just putting the picture on your business card considered a logo?
A logo is a distinct mark to identify you and your business. Logo - Wikipedia .
Taking a picture and putting that on your business card does not make it necessarily a logo.
