In general terms, you can use an Adobe Stock image for the cover of your book. There are a few exceptions. The image cannot provide the primary value of the book. In most cases the cover is simply decorative with the content of the book providing the primary value. Another thing to keep in mind is that the use of the image cannot be perceived as offensive by a model featured in the image. No steamy romance novels, political content, etc. The print run limit is 500,000 so you would need to purchase an additional license if you exceed 500,000 sales. As always, be sure to review the license agreement for specific details on allowable use and if you are still uncertain it may be in your best interest to obtain legal counsel to review the agreement on your behalf as well.
