Adobe announced in an email to registered Creative Suite users that it will discontinue its Stock Photo Service effective April 1.
The text of the email follows:
As of April 1, 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.
Over the next few months we will be making changes to Adobe Stock Photos. On March 4, search functionality will be disabled. You will be able to purchase images through our service until March 31.
