At Indiana University, eligible users with access to Adobe Creative Cloud through IU's contract with Adobe now have access to Adobe Stock. Users have unlimited access to Adobe's standard stock assets, including nearly 200 million photos, vector graphics, and illustrations, which can be used in presentations, reports, videos, websites, and other creative work.

Key features

  • Unlimited access to standard images:

    IU users can download an unlimited number of assets of Adobe Stock's 'standard content'. This includes most photos, vector graphics, and illustrations listed on Adobe Stock. There are currently more than 190 million assets on Adobe Stock, most of which are considered 'standard content', with more being added on an ongoing basis.

    While additional premium assets, such as video, templates, and 3D models, are not available to most IU users as part of this agreement, some previously licensed premium assets can be re-downloaded by anyone at IU by browsing through the license history on the Adobe Stock website. Additionally, Adobe has made a limited number of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and motion graphics templates available to download for free. Adobe Stock also offers some other content for free, including some video.

    IU has a very limited number of credits for premium content, such as video, audio, templates, 3D models, and some images. These assets are tagged as 'premium' when searching Adobe Stock. Credits can be allotted to individual faculty or staff users on a case-by-case basis. Note that credits are only needed for this premium content; before requesting credits, make sure the standard or free content as outlined above isn't meeting your needs. If you are a faculty or staff member and would like to request credits, complete the Adobe Stock Premium Credits Request form.

    Only IU employees may request credits for premium content. However, all IU users may download unlimited standard assets, including more than 190 million photos, illustrations, and graphics, as outlined above.
  • Search:

    To help navigate the millions of assets and find the right one for a project, Adobe Stock includes advanced search and filtering capabilities, including visual search that searches for images similar to one a user uploads; filters that sort based on elements like depth of field or whether an image has room to add copy or other elements; and artificial intelligence algorithms that apply search terms to individual aesthetic elements found in an image. For more, see Adobe Stock Search Tips.

  • License to use assets:

    Most assets licensed and downloaded from Adobe Stock through IU's Adobe agreement come with an Education License, which allows faculty, staff, and students to use, reproduce, archive, modify and display the asset for purposes related to their professional, academic, and course work at IU, including use in marketing and promotional materials, presentations, decorations, and digital productions that benefit IU. Assets licensed under IU's agreement with Adobe should not be used for other purposes unrelated to IU, such as for personal financial gain. See more about the Adobe Stock Education License. When you search for assets on the Adobe Stock website, you'll be able to see the license that applies.

    Attribution is required for any image used in an editorial manner (that is, in connection with newsworthy or cultural events, such as use in a newspaper, magazine, newsletter, press release, or similar media). Attribution is generally not required for other uses of assets licensed with the Education License; however, some images are licensed for editorial use only, and thus require attribution. Make sure to note which license applies when using images.

    Generally, presentations, course web sites, course material, projects, and the like would not be considered editorial use and thus do not require attribution. However, instructors and others may want to provide attribution even when not required as a way to model for students proper citation and attribution of sources.

    Whether you are required or choose to attribute based on the factors here, Adobe and UITS recommend the following attribution format: AuthorName - The author or contributor name is listed with each asset.

  • Integration with other apps:

    Adobe Stock is fully integrated into native Adobe Creative Cloud applications, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Premiere Pro, among others. In those applications, you can search and license Adobe Stock assets from within the application. You can also enable Adobe Stock integrations for Microsoft PowerPoint and Google Slides through IU's Microsoft and Google ecosystems, respectively.
