Using stock photography with identifiable faces

Hello,

I'm interested in purchasing a photo of a model using an extended license. The photo will be used as a part of a cover for a novel. Can anyone advise me as to whether I am in the clean to use the photo under the extended license even though the face of the model is fully identifiable? I know there are some legalities to using photographs with identifiable faces, and unless a release is signed by the model, there could be legal claims used against my cover even with my extended release. Is this correct? Can Adobe provide me with the written release for this application? Is it included with the extended license?

Any help would be very appreciated. I've contacted Adobe but don't have an answer yet.

Hi Eli,

All assets intended for commercial use and containing recognizable people are uploaded with a signed model release allowing the image to be used commercially within the limits of the license agreement. You may also refer to Common Questions, Adobe Stock for more details.

For more details 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?

Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.

Regards,

Twarita
