I was wondering the following.
If an image were to be removed by the author, hypothetically, since the time I first license the image. What happens to the "license again" function?
I want to avoid accidentally licensing an image that is no longer available. Will this be obvious on the license page? Is there a warning or change in wording?
I understand your query here.
Currently the license again button still shows but it won't let you license the image, instead it will route you to the search page with similar results for the files that are available to be licensed.
Just to confirm: There is no change on the page itself. No visible indicator that the image was removed, or terms changed.
The link simply re-directs.
Is this correct?
Yes, that is correct.
Actually, when an asset is removed from the Adobe Stock site you will see indications of this in your License History. The link to the asset is removed in the ID column and License Again and Download are removed and replaced with Not Available.
Would the license history page state the reason it is no longer available. e.g. "author removed"? Or does it only state "not available".
It will say "not available".
The author may have removed the picture, but also Adobe may have removed the picture. I do not think there is a reason...other then not available.
