If I say the company name "Adobe," you can probably tell me at least one product it makes, whether that's Flash, Photoshop, Reader, Illustrator, Lightroom, InDesign, Premier or one of the many others.
Looking at that list, you might notice Adobe software helps people create and edit visual media, whether it's graphics, photos, video or books. So, it's a bit of a surprise that up until this point Adobe has been missing a staple of the media world: stock images
In case you aren't familiar with stock images, let me explain real fast. Not everyone has the time or skill to go shoot their own photos for whatever project they're working on. So instead they go to sites where they can buy images from professional photographers.
Some of the photos you'll see attached to articles on my site are stock images, in fact. I've also told you in the past how you can make money selling your own photos as stock images.
Stock images are big business, and, according to Adobe, 85% of people who buy stock images also use Adobe products. So, it just makes sense that Adobe would want to get in on the action.
