Hi, if I buy a photo on Adobe Stock with a standard license, can I put my site watermark on the photo? I would like to prevent a photo I bought from being stolen from me by other sites.
Thank you.

As far as I know, you are allowed to alter the photos. But to be sure, please check your license agreement.

As a contributor, I dont want to see your name on my photos. Even though you bought it, it belongs to me. Put my name on the photo! Problem solved.

I don't want to put my name on the photos. I want to put the name of the blog. If I don't put anything and everyone saves image with name, won't the contributor sell less photos?

This is a Stock user question, not a Stock Contributor question.  I am moving this post to Adobe Stock.

This looks complicated. You cannot claim being the creator of the asset. You can, however, watermark it appropriately. Anyhow, you won't put a full resolution picture on your site. That too is a good protection.

 

Look here for more information on licensing: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock/links-for-licensing-terms/td-p/11366788
(Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based on reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee).
