Photo Manipulator's Guide To Adobe Stock

In this video tutorial, watch as Dean Samed gives you the low down on all things stock image related. The video is from the perspective of a photo manipulator.

In the video, Samed starts by explaining why he uses photo stocks and why they are essential to his work. The main thing is time. In this industry time equals money. So if you are losing time, you are losing money. Lots of people use free stock sites, and it takes time to scour these and find good quality images. By using premium stock you can find quality images easier and with no hidden pitfalls related to licensing. Samed then moves on talking about moving to Adobe stock from Fotolia and gives us some insights as to why he still use Adobe Stock when he was forced to move over. 

As the video continues, Samed starts on a positive note by showing us the user interface and how easy it is to find images, and also show us the quality. He has no complaints about the website or the images. And as a bonus the allotted downloads if not used, do roll over to the next month. This according to Samed is one of its best features. Next, Samed discusses the bad. His main grievance, the website speed and the image safety feature which always turns itself back on. Even if you turn it off multiple times, it turns itself back on. Overall the review is very much positive for Adobe stock.

This tutorial is great for anyone who is a full time creative and is looking to pay for premium stocks from Adobe stock.
