    Re: How to properly credit an Adobe stock image

      Hello Sheena,

      Per Common Questions, Adobe Stock

      Quote:

      "Do I need to add a photo credit?

      We require a photo credit to be added only when using the image in an editorial article or for social media."

      So when using the image on a corporate website (non-editorial) a credit is not required.

      Can you confirm I've understood this correctly please?

      Thanks,

      Nigel.

          Hi Nigel,

           

          Thanks for reaching out to the Adobe Stock community.

           

          If you are using an unmodified asset from Adobe Stock website, I would suggest you to include a credit line to the photographer.

          The credit line(photographer's name) which you should mention on the image should be "© [Photographer's Name] /Adobe Stock."

           

          If you are modifying the image, the credit line becomes optional. The image is considered modified when the final modified version of the image shows no resemblance to the original image.

           

          Hope this information helps!

           

          Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.

           

          Regards,

          Twarita

            Hello Twarita,

            "I would suggest" is a little bit vague. Why can you not refer to actual Adobe corporate policy?

             

            The article I linked to says one thing, and you are saying something completely different.  Do you speak as a person in the street or as an Adobe employee?  If the latter, can I kindly request that you state facts not heresay?

             

            The policy statement I linked to says we don't need to credit images unless they are editorial. This is very clear and you are contradicting this.

             

            I look forward to hearing from you again with references to Adobe policy statements if they differ from the one I linked to.

             

            Best regards,

            Nigel.

              Hi Nigel,

               

              As far as I understand your query, it seems you're looking for the correct details to add a credit line to the image.

               

              You're right when using the image on a corporate website (non-editorial) a credit is not required. However you can reference the photographer anywhere on the website for their work.

              But a proper Photo credit with the apt format is only required when using the image in an editorial article or for social media.

               

              Let me know if that helps!

               

              Regards,

              Sheena

                Thanks Sheena, that clears up the ambiguity very nicely.

                Much appreciated!

                Best regards,

                Nigel.
