Work with Adobe Stock images stock

Get started with Adobe Stock get-started-stock

The Adobe Stock and Adobe Journey Optimizer Email Designer integration plugin provides customers an easy way to navigate, license, and save imagery for use in message authoring.

Adobe Stock provides access to millions of high-quality, curated, royalty-free photos, videos, illustrations, and vector graphics. You can choose to purchase a credit pack to license assets or only buy one Standard or Extended license for the needed asset. Adobe Stock also provides a free collection of assets.

With Adobe Journey Optimizer, you can upload images to your emails directly from Adobe Stock and add it to your Assets folder using the Find Adobe Stock photos option. In addition, the Find Similar Stock photos option helps you find images that match the content, color, and composition of the asset used in your delivery.

Permissions stock-permissions

The Find Adobe Stock photos and Find Similar Image options are available to users with access to an AEM Assets Essentials Product Profile.

For more on this, refer to Experience Manager Assets documentation.

To license and download your image, follow the steps below:

    You are then redirected to the Adobe Stock website to buy the license.
