Searching Adobe Stock for Files

So this is one of the Adobe Stock searches that I did. And this is what we got. Is a whole bunch of these birthday cards. And I kind of like the style here but I could switch out birthday for anniversary, other seasons, things like that. So this is just one of the basic stock items that you can get. And it's like wow this is great. I've got lots of elements, everything's created in Illustrator so I could literally just take one of these and run with any of this, be able to change any of these elements. And when we search for templates and stuff like this they're gonna usually give us several different versions of this card instead of just one. But because I've gone through and I've done searches for other things I could do a search for calligraphy and uh, if I spelled it correctly, comes close. No. There we go. I spell that wrong. Let's see. Calligraphy pen. Do a search. Ah since I'm searching for templates. That's one of the things. I've done that before. There we go. Okay let's do a ...

search for calligraphy and see what comes up with. Let's take off the word pen. Cause I don't really want the pen. I'll do a search for calligraphy here and I see that it comes up with a lot of cool little swirly things, words, and it's like oh you know, I really want to go more towards the words, the greetings, the anniversary, the birthday. So if I go though, click on this and then find similar, this kind of gives me a better idea of what I can search for. Even though I may not know the right search parameters. So I've got all these and it's like okay great, this is what I'm looking for here and I can go through, see the different items. Oh this is great, find out this, find that. It's like this is awesome. We have all these great things that I can download and it's like wow I could make like any card that I want. It's like, sure. Just grab it and go. And multiple pages of all this great cqligrapphy, everything. And if you find what you like, click on it, download it, open it right up in Illustrator, good to go. And I've done that with several of these. I've got my little happy birthday here that's in my library. And I can simply just double click on that. My library opens it right up here.

I really think this amazing class is misnamed. It does show how to use Adobe Stock to find vector art, yes, but it shows so much more about how to use libraries as well as a ridiculous number of time-saving tips for streamlining your Illustrator workflow. And the vector art used could come from anywhere. I personally don't care to use Adobe Stock, which is why I nearly passed up on watching this class, but man am I glad I decided to check it out. Jason is a delightful teacher, clearly very excited to show people how to work faster and smarter and his tips and techniques for working faster are outstanding. I knew quite a few of them already, but there were also many that I didn't know and that will make a massive difference to how I approach working in Adobe in the future. This really is an outstanding class. I can't recommend it enough.

Adobe Stock has a lot of pre-made templates styles you can use in your design. You can customize the content and make nice variations. Jasom explains that you not always have to start from zero. I agree that that the possibilities with assets are endless. Adobe Stock is just one libary though.

Even though this course is described as focusing on Adobe Stock, Jason Hoppe offered so many timesavers and shortcuts—I had to purchase the course to remember them all. I found this course very helpful and full of shortcuts that promise to streamline my workflow.
