As always, I was at this year's Photokina –world's largest Trade Show in imagery industry–, which took place last week in Cologne, Germany. There, I was lucky to meet with Zeke Koch, Senior Product Manager at Adobe Stock, whom kindly agreed to this interview specially for our Stock Photo Secrets and Footage Secrets readers.
Zeke and his team are in charge of designing Adobe Stock's integration into the Adobe Creative Cloud software, and to improve its performance and functionality. He and I chatted about Adobe Stock's exciting present, he shared some juicy details on their product's main and new features, and also gave us some hints on the service's promising future.
