  1. We’re glad you found our Shutterstock Free Trial useful, Sandra!

  2. Hi, Ron. Thank you for your comment. You are very right, Canva Pro’s current pricing is $12.99/month or $119.99/year. Our article is not old, it was actually updated at the end of August 2021 to reflect a temporary price-cut in Canva memberships. As you sharply pointed out, the plans are now back to regular pricing. We have updated our article to reflect this, and we thank you for pointing it out to us.

  3. Hi Emma, we are very glad to know our extended Canva Free Trial was useful for you!

  4. Hi Derek, that is subject to designer’s preferences and PDF is a perfectly acceptable format for graphics. But generally speaking, EPS format is better for editing.

  5. Hi Francisco,

    We are not Shutterstock (the source of the video you posted), and besides that, unfortunately, we don’t know who this model is. I believe a better way to find him would be to contact the contributor (the artist that created this video) directly and ask. Or perhaps running an image search with his face on Google. Hope this helps a bit!

  6. Hi Lucy,

    Clarifying first that we are not Shutterstock representatives, it is my understanding that you could use a Shutterstock image for this purpose, providing you make less than 500,000 copies. This is the stipulation on point a.2. of their Standard license agreement” “Printed in physical form as part of product packaging and labeling, (…) CD and DVD cover art, or in the advertising and copy of tangible media, (…) provided no Image is reproduced more than 500,000 times in the aggregate”; all images downloaded during your free trial period are under Standard license. I advise verifying with Shutterstock directly for your peace of mind, though.
    Hope this helps!

  7. Hi Janet, it is my understanding that using a stock image to create a painting would be considered a copy of the image and thus, not allowed by any license as it would infringe the image author’s copyright.
    However, we are not Shutterstock representatives, so I advise you to contact Shutterstock directly to verify whether you can or cannot use their photos this way.

  8. Hi John, Adobe (and most stock agencies for the matter) have policies against stockpiling, meaning they put a deadline to when you can use images you downloaded from their site after your subscription ends. Each agency has its own limit, but it is usually not very long around 30-60 days. After that, the license for images you haven’t yet used is considered invalid. If your intention is to download images to use them later on, this deadline gets in your way.
    So, I would advise contacting Adobe Stock directly to find out what their deadline for unused images is, and based on that information see if a one-month subscription is worth your while.
    Hope this helps!

  9. Hi Nainesh, We are not Adobe representatives, so we are in no position to quote custom prices for their service. If the offers listed in our article do not meet your needs, you can always contact a representative on Adobe Creative Cloud’s website. Their customer support service is top quality, so don’t hesitate to discuss your specific needs with them.

  10. Hi Patti,

    What you describe is considered a reproduction of copyrighted images, and it’s prohibited by most stock photo agencies’ licensing terms. Meaning you cannot use drawings based on stock photos, even if you buy a license. There are some agencies that might allow it upon agreement, so in that case, you should contact the agencies directly.

  11. Hi Wendy,

    You will need to verify this with a Shutterstock representative directly. It is my understanding that you cannot use a Shutterstock image as part of a painting, any more than you can use it as part of a logo. These are copyrighted images and you cannot claim them as your own, thus you could not claim a painting that contains a Shutterstock image as your own, original work, be it for exhibition or for sale. I am under the impression that Enhanced License doesn’t cover this.
    However, we at Stock Photo Secrets aren’t lawyers and we do not represent Shutterstock, so again, please verify this with them directly.

  12. Hi Anna, as long as the images are a small part of the manual (for illustration purposes, for example) and not the core value in it, and also as long as the manual itself is not sold, then Standard License should suit you –keeping in mind the 500,000 print run limit. We have a dedicated article on Shutterstock License explained that you might find useful: https://www.stockphotosecrets.com/questions-answers/shutterstock-license.html
    Please keep in mind our articles and my comment are for guidance only, to be 100% certain you’re using the right license, you must contact Shutterstock directly and ask for confirmation.
    I hope this helps you!

  13. Hi Jacob, we’re very glad you found our article and real-life examples useful!

  14. Hi Steven. Firstly, in Adobe Stock “assets” refers to media files. A “Standard asset” does equal a Standard image indeed.
    The price of Standard images with subscriptions (the only type of assets you can download with these plans) ranges between $0.26 and $9.99 each. Our article focuses on these as they are the best prices, and we display them on tables to make them easier to identify 🙂
    If you use credits for Standard images, 1 image = 1 credit. That would be $8 – $9.99 per image depending on what size of credit pack you use.
    All this info is properly displayed on Adobe Stock throughout the buying process, as well as on their pricing page. In the case of Standard images, you must do a little calculation if you wish to know the price per unit because they no longer sell them individually, but the info is there.
    Lastly, the price of the assets does vary but depending on their status and value: Premium images, Premium 3D designs, Stock Video, Extended License and Editorial License have different price points than Standard images (they cost more). These can only be bought on demand, be it one by one or with credits.
    I hope to have helped clarify this for you!
