Adobe Stock assets that you want to use for your production Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source stores should be licensed. This licensing ensures you have legal access to the image and to eliminate the Adobe Stock watermark that is present on all image previews. To license images or to save already-licensed images, you must be logged in to your Adobe account.

The new Media Gallery provides a direct integration with Adobe Stock, making it easy to license your images directly from the gallery page.


This feature requires the Adobe Stock Integration module and configuration. Licensing Adobe Stock images requires a paid Adobe Stock plan and an Adobe account.

  1. On the Admin sidebar, go to Content > Media > Media Gallery.

  2. Follow the steps on Using Adobe Stock Images to log in and save preview images to the media storage.
