Hi, I'm finding it very hard to understand whether I can use Adobe stock images (roylalty free, standard licence ) to accompany a press release. We regulary, distribute press releases about market analysis or product releases and media often ask for an accompanying image eg a press release about oil production in North America. Can I distribute an image of an oil well with my press release assuming I credit the author?
Please see this link for all the details:
Hope this answers all your questions.
For anyone else wondering, the key term for me was:
(iv) you may not use, reproduce, distribute, or display the Work with a press release that includes the distribution of the stand-alone image file to the media.
Yes, the keyword is “stand alone”. If that is asked for, you need to buy an extended license.
