Hello everyone,

After downloaded Adobe Reader in my new laptop, a popup came up asking me if I would like to trial Adobe Stock for free for the first month. I found the offer quite tempting and I subscribed. I've downloaded 10 stock images and canceled my membership after that (please don't judge me for this).

Questions:

1. can I use those images for one of my websites which is owned by a company where I am a shareholder and director?

2. Is the standard license of those images valid if I never paid membership?

Thanks

Hi Stefan,

No. You can use your available licenses as long as your membership is active, but you forfeit any unused licenses upon cancellation of your membership.

Please see Common Questions, Adobe Stock

Sheena,

Thanks for your reply. I am wondering if someone will use an image from AdobeStock for a book cover...Do they have to pay memberships for tens of years? This can apply to websites and apps. Can you please send me the link where I can find this information?

Hi Stefan,

One clarification is if you're using an image to create a derivative physical asset for resale (e.g. t-shirt, mug, book) then you need an extended license. Those are not included in the free trial, which only includes a standard license. You'll need to purchase an extended license for your desired image(s).

If your book is a digital-only ebook, then you're fine with the standard license.

For more details, see http://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/legal/servicetou/Adobe_Stock_Terms-en_US-20170501_2200.pdf

With both standard and extended licenses, once you've licensed a specific asset, the license is in perpetuity.

Sheena, My licenses are standard. I don't have any extended license and is not written anywhere that I have to keep my membership active while I am using the images. I am willing to pay for the images if need, but I will not have a membership "for life" with AdobeStock...It doesn't make any sense to me...

Once you have licensed an asset, the license is permanent. You can use the assets you buy regardless of your membership status.

That's great! Coming back to my initial question: Can I use the images if I obtained the license in my free trial period?

Thanks

Also, once you license the image you will still have access to it after you've canceled your subscription. However unused licensed credits will no longer be available after you cancel your subscription.

Thanks everyone!

I already uploaded the images on my new website Is looking much better now

I am just wondering: If Adobe will find my website and ask for the image licenses: Can I be in trouble if I own 50% of the company who owns the website? Or...in order to use the licenses...the website should be in my name (as individual). The domain of the website is in my personal name (not the company). Is this enough?

Hi Stefan,

We just need to know if the image was licensed or not.

Sheena
