Depositphotos Adobe Extension

Depositphotos extension for Adobe products

The work process for designers who need to use online data in their projects is not as simple as it might seem at first glance. Of course, the number of available options on the web can greatly facilitate any creative process, but at the same time, the number of distractions continues to grow at a record pace; therefore, keeping one’s concentration on a project becomes very challenging. Besides, if an author needs additional files to apply to his projects – like, let’s say, stock photos or clip art – looking for the sources to get them is even more distracting and – even worse – an inspiration-killer (especially when you stumble upon dozens of ad banners every second!). However, there’s a solution that promises to be really handy for everyone working with Adobe products – and it’s totally free.

The microstock agency Depositphotos, once featured on Adobe Tutorials, has developed a free extension for Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator that allows users to browse stock files available for sale at Depositphotos without leaving the work area of their image editor. Since there are more than 20 million stock photos and vector images in the Depositphotos library, designers can be sure to find exactly what they need.

The point of the extension is to optimize a designer’s work process and help eliminate any distraction factors. So… what features does this extension have?
First, it includes a smart search that lets you browse millions of images using your own specific criteria without leaving the image editor. One standout feature: once you have found a useful image, you can apply it to your current project… without having to buy it! Just drag it to the workspace and see what it looks like. Once you find the solution to your problem, then you can easily download it for use in your project. You pay only for the images you choose to use.


Furthermore, all your purchases are saved within the extension, so you can return to them at any time. Another useful feature is access to detailed Depositphotos usage statistics: it shows you the number of credits (Depositphotos’ own currency) in your account or the status of your Depositphotos subscription plan (definitely a more convenient way to purchase stock files if you need them on regular basis); moreover, you can quickly go to the subscription/credits pages to buy more credits or update your subscription.


The Depositphotos extension is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator from Creative Cloud and Creative Suite version 4 and higher, in either Mac OS or Windows.
