Today we are excited to announce the public beta of the Adobe Stock Contributor Site, a new platform that allows you to upload and sell your photos, illustrations, videos and vectors to the world’s largest creative community.

Sign up to become an Adobe Stock contributor.

Most creatives that purchase stock assets use at least one Adobe product on an ongoing basis. To support this engaged and passionate creative community, we are delighted to offer the premier destination to buy, but now also to sell high-quality, royalty-free content.

By contributing to Adobe Stock, you have the opportunity to showcase your work to millions of customers directly inside Creative Cloud applications such as Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC. Additionally, the release of our new contributor site includes two amazing features that will make submitting content to Adobe Stock easier than ever: auto-keywording and Creative Cloud integration.


One of our major new features is suggested keywording, a time-saving tool that leverages innovative machine learning technology to automatically generate the first five keywords of each image you submit.

When you upload an image, our algorithm will analyze it, generating keywords from top images that are similar to yours. We reorder those keywords by relevancy and display the top five for you to review, edit and reorder.

This feature is in beta and is based on the concept of “machine learning” – its accuracy will improve as our contributor community uses it. The more you leverage the feature, the better it gets – ultimately saving you more time!

Creative Cloud integration

One of our major priorities for contributors is to maximize the time spent doing what you do best – capturing and creating content – and minimize the time spent during the submission process. That’s why we’ve integrated Adobe Stock contributor submission directly within Creative Cloud applications, right from where you create, saving you time and reducing friction.

During this beta phase, you’ll have the ability to upload images to Adobe Stock directly from Lightroom CC and Bridge CC. For an in-depth tutorial, visit our HelpX page. Our goal is to open the feature to more content types and to integrate into more CC applications soon.

More Improvements to Come

The Adobe Stock Contributor Site is currently in beta. This means that although the site is fully functional, some features will continue to be polished before we release it publicly. The beta phase is a great opportunity for us to give you a sneak peek and to gather your feedback in order to make improvements.

We want to build the best tool possible for our contributors, so we’ll be listening carefully to your input. We look forward to hearing from you as we focus on building the best experience possible for our contributor community.
