Adobe kills Stock Photos service

Royalty-free photos come to an end

Adobe's Stock Photos service is being killed off on April 1, 2008. The service allows Adobe Bridge users to buy royalty-free images for use in their work. It was introduced in 2005 with the launch of Adobe Creative Suite 2.0.

"Adobe has decided to concentrate its efforts in other areas," the company said on the Adobe Stock Photos website. The service will remain fully operational until March 3, 2008. From then through the end of March, comp images will still be available for download.

Adobe has posted instructions for users interested in purchasing or downloading images after March 31, 2008. An image ID converter is being provided so users can purchase images directly from the image providers who have supplied content to Adobe Stock Photos in the past.
