From: [adobe.com...]
As of April 1, 2008, the Adobe Stock Photos royalty-free image service will be discontinued. We made this decision in order to focus our efforts in other areas, and we want to share this news with you and let you know how it affects you.

Just got this from Adobe

1. Complete your image searches by March 4, 2008.

2. Make final image purchases by March 31, 2008.

3. If necessary, re-download past purchases and print your purchase history by March 31, 2008.

4. When you're ready, uninstall Adobe Stock Photos from AdobeŽ Bridge in your Creative SuiteŽ applications.

I can't say I will miss it but I am sure that some will.

Got the same message this yesterday.

I used it a few times - just never really competed with the larger stock sites for quality.

I always wondered who actually used this.

Oh well, at least we can remove some of the bloat from Adobe CS.

Hi,

I checked the same only 2 days back. I have searched for images from Adobe Stock Photos very few times and dint find the quality expected, but i have heard from many that they miss it a lot.

I think that there are too many cheapo $3 online stock image libraries these days. Sure, if I want top quality I use Getty or one of their subsidiaries. But if the job is not at that level, why spend more?

I never really understood what market Adobe were pitching at. Clearly, as you say, there was a market, but perhaps not a big enough market.
