If I do the adobe stock images trial and put images on my website, then decide to cancel later on can I still keep the images on my website legally? Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks for reaching out to the Adobe Stock community.
So to answer your question, yes, if you sign up for the Adobe Stock promo offer and then decide to cancel it after the first-month trial, you can still keep the images which are already downloaded and the ones which are used on your website. Also, if using an unmodified image of Adobe Stock on your website, I would suggest you to add a credit line to the contributor.
For more information on the licensing terms and restrictions of Adobe Stock, please refer to Stock Licensing & terms FAQ: Where can I find the terms and licensing information for Adobe Stock?
Additionally, the images which are downloaded always remain in your license history.
Hope this information helps!
Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.
Thank you for the response. If use the images on my website how does Adobe know that I've paid for them? I don't want to get hit with some kind of copyright strike.
Also, as far as leaving a credit line under the photo you said you suggest leaving a credit line to the contributor, is this absolutely necessary? I don't think it would look good.
In order to avoid any kind of copyrighted strike, you need to follow all the licensing terms and restrictions of Adobe Stock as mentioned in the above link.
Also, we require a photo credit to be added when using the image in an editorial article or for social media and website is a way through which social media can be promoted.
