Have you ever spent hours trawling through stock image sites searching for the ideal image? If so, you understand the importance of good-quality stock assets. Luckily, Adobe Stock makes the search a million times easier with its collection of over 70,000 assets – all for free!

Adobe's vast collection includes images, vectors, videos, templates, 3D assets and backgrounds. In short, it's chock-a-block with assets you'll actually want to add to your work. It's no wonder that Adobe Stock is one of our top stock art sites. See the top deals below and keep reading for more information.

The free assets have the same commercial licenses as Adobe's paid-for assets, and so can be used in personal or commercial projects. 

Adobe has also acknowledged that finding images that are relevant to today's socially distanced world can be tricky, and the company reflected on the need for diversity in its library. With that in mind, it launched the Advocates programme, which aims to champion content from underrepresented communities. You can submit work to Adobe for any of the eight intersectional creative briefs – either bespoke or pre existing projects count! Find out more here (opens in new tab).

Adobe is investing $500,000 in a new Artist Development Fund (opens in new tab), which will be used by 40 artists from a "diverse intersectional spectrum" to create new projects to help promote groups that have been traditionally underrepresented in advertising. Content created through this fund will then be available for a year as part of the free section of Adobe Stock.  

You can find out more about the initiative and free stock assets on Adobe's blog (opens in new tab), and discover all the free assets available over at Adobe Stock (opens in new tab)
