Last week I attended Photokina 2016, in Cologne, Germany. As the largest Trade Show in imagery industry, Photokina gathers representatives of the biggest companies in stock photography. One of them was Adobe, whom gave a press conference at the event including news about their Adobe Stock service.
I was one of the participants. It was a very interesting presentation, where Adobe Stock executives Zeke Koch –with whom I had a special interview that you can check out here— and Morgan David De Lossy, and Premium Contributor Arne Trautmann, exposed different aspects of Adobe Stock's current and new features.
Here we bring you exclusive videos from the Adobe Stock press conference at Photokina on September 22nd.
We apologize for the bad video and audio quality –the common difficulties of recording a live press event– but we expect you enjoy the valuable insights from this Adobe Stock trio.
Zeke Koch: Adobe Stock to be a Community of Designers Selling and Buying Stock
Zeke Koch is Adobe Stock's Senior Product Manager, and is in charge of the integration of Adobe Stock into Creative Cloud applications.
In our interview, he mentioned the deeper integration of Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud, the auto-keywording functionality and other improvements that aimed at making it easy for creatives to submit their own images to be sold at Adobe Stock.
Here, he gives an in-depth explanation over Adobe Stock's goal to integrate creatives in a fair-trade marketplace where every designer can be both a stock buyer, and a stock producer.
