adobe stock review When you’re on a tight budget, you’ll be very careful with where you spend your money. The last thing you want to do is spend your money on anything that will not give you the most value for your marketing dollars.

When you’re in the market for stock images, you have a lot of choices in front of you. However, if you are on a tight budget, then Adobe Stock will be the place you’re going to want to get your images from.

Here’s why.

Take Advantage of 10 Free Photos While You Can

Right now, Adobe has a special going on for new Creative Cloud accounts. Sitting in at a $50 value, they will give you 10 downloads for free. That means you could create your account and have that your first and images credited for free. If you’re on a tight budget, probably means you don’t need a whole lot of images at one time. That makes this offer not only enticing but making it imperative that you take advantage of it.

Get Photoshop for Free.

When you sign up for your Creative Cloud account and add Adobe Stock to it, you’ll notice that they’ll want to charge you $49.99 for it. However, you’ll also see that if you add one of their software titles to your subscription, such as Photoshop, they will want to charge you an additional $20 for it.

That’s not much of a discount, is it?

When you play around with it for just a minute, you’ll notice that Adobe will give you a $20 discount for adding Photoshop (or any one of their software titles) to your Creative Cloud subscription with Adobe Stock.

That means you have two options. You can either pay $49.99 for 10 images per month from Adobe Stock, or you can pay $49.99 for 10 images per month from Adobe Stock and Photoshop on top of that.

The choice is yours. Personally, I would take the free Photoshop.

Here’s something that can save you both time and money. When you log in to Photoshop for the first time, play around with it for a little bit. Look for Adobe’s library.

That means you don’t need to log in to Adobe Stock, download your image, save it to your hard drive, and then import it into Photoshop. Everything is done for you in a very streamlined, unified and intuitive manner. This is how you can use your Creative Cloud account to your advantage to save you both time and money.
