    API for Adobe Stock and client licensing

    paulmoor

      Hello - is there an API available to allow AS images to be integrated into an online catalogue for a web site? The thumbnail images can be selected by clients for printing at which time we would purchase the required image a license on behalf of the client. This would be for every instance of each image to conform with licensing requirements.

       

      Im looking for a method to extract image thumbnails from AS by various search criteria (landscape, cityscape by location etc). Is this possible ?

          No that is not possible. You would need extended licenses for that and those are only available through Fotolia.com.

            But your standard licensing says that we can reuse an image for additional clients if a license is purchased for each client individually. Are you saying this is not the case?

              That is the case. You just can't sell the images.

               

              If your product is a book about New Zealand for example and you include a few photos and maybe a cover you are fine. If that book is a Photo bBook or the image is used on other items such as cards, mugs, t-shirts etc it is not covered in a Standard license and requires the extended license.

               

              The issue isn't that you would be licensing for more than one client/customer - the issue is you are reselling the images.

               

              A general rule of thumb is this - ask your self if you could sell that same product without the images. If the answer is yes then you are usually okay with the standard license. If the answer is no then you would need the extended license.

               

              It's all a moot point anyways as neither Stock or Fotolia have ways to become a reseller.
