Tutorial: Using Adobe Stock with Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Adobe Stock is a massive, high-resolution stock photo, illustration, and vector library that allows for easy integration with Premiere Pro, Photoshop, After Effects, and other Adobe programs. In this tutorial we'll explore how Adobe Stock can work with Adobe Premiere Pro in our video projects.

In this quick tutorial, we’ll look at using Adobe Stock with Premiere Pro CC 2015. Adobe Stock was recently released in the 2015 update to the Adobe Creative Cloud.

In a nutshell, Adobe Stock a massive, high-resolution stock photo, illustration, and vector library (Figure 1, below) that allows for easy integration with Premiere Pro, Photoshop, After Effects, and other Adobe programs. Let’s take a few minutes to see how this can work with Adobe Premiere Pro in our video projects.

Starting with Premiere Pro open, I’ve created a basic type title for this tutorial. It's already placed on the timeline (Figure 2, below). Now I'd like to add a nice image as a background for this.

Accessing the Adobe Stock Library from Premiere Pro

You can access the Adobe Stock Library from Adobe Premiere Pro by choosing Window > Libraries (Figure 3, below). The Libraries panel opens.

In the Libraries panel, you can access the Adobe Stock website by clicking the Stock icon in the bottom-right corner of the panel (Figure 4, below).

This will launch the Adobe Stock Library in your web browser. Here you’ll want to make sure that you are signed in with your Adobe credentials.

Searching for and Acquiring an Image

Now you can type in whatever kind of image you are looking for. I'm going to search for some apples to add as a background for the type I created back in Premiere Pro (Figure 5, below).

I'll select an image from the results and then choose the Buy license & save to My Library option (Figure 6, below).

If you're doing this for the very first time, Adobe will ask you if you'd like to save this to a specific library followed by sending you to a payment options page. From there, you'll be able to see the different plans that are available to you as a Creative Cloud user. Then Adobe will ask you to verify your payment method, which by default is the same payment method you used with your other Adobe purchases. Finally, you'll see a popup window to download your image.
