Get Creative with Adobe Stock Templates!

 May 18, 2017

Do you ever want to create an edgy design but just don't know where to start?

You never have to start with a blank page again! Designing from scratch is made much easier with Adobe stock templates. The templates make it easy to get creative and are already available in your Creative Cloud apps!

To get started, search and open Adobe Stock templates inside Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC.

Just go to File > New and search from a variety of high-quality templates created by professional designers. Previews are included for each template so you can always pick the right one.

To download and open a template, click See Preview to view its components, file size and other details. If you like what you see, you can then click Download. Once the download is complete, click Open. The next time you're in the New Document dialog, the template will appear in the Saved tab. 


Tip: While a template is downloading, you can continue to browse templates or perform other tasks in the New Document box. 

Alternatively, you can browse and preview templates in Adobe Stock first and then open them inside your Creative Cloud apps. Save templates inside Creative Cloud Libraries to organize your projects. 

Some of the most recent features include:

  • Photoshop templates: Design photo albums, social media layouts and video title graphics.
  • Illustrator templates: Business cards, brochures and posters.
  • Indesign Templates: Customized resumes, magazine layouts and stationary sets.

And all the popular favourites are still there:

  • Print: Business cards, brochures and posters
  • Web: Icon sets, social media layouts and wireframes
  • Mobile: Mockups to showcase your design and icon sets
  • Photo: Composting, photo albums and photo restoration
  • Art and Illustration: Textures, masks and effects, and characters
  • Film and Video: Title sequences, storyboards and overlay graphics

Have fun and get creative!
