• The Adobe Stock library should augment the UWM Photo Archive, not replace it. Please check the UWM photo archive first as these shots align best with UWM branding and messaging. 
  • Registered users can log in to Adobe Stock using your ePanther ID and then by selecting “company/school account.” If you don’t have an account, please email stock-images@uwm.edu.  
  • You will not be charged for assets you license if you have credits to cover them. You also have access to free (zero credit) images by searching with this filtered term. If the Marketing & Communications Design Team is working on your project, they’ll license assets on your behalf. You’ll also have access to all UWM’s licensed images. 
  • When licensing an asset, you will have to input the project you are licensing it for. This is so other users have an awareness of how an image is actively being used and to help make more informed decisions moving forward. 
  • Assets are not unlimited. UWM has access to 10,000 credits (approximately 1,000 images) per contract year. Because of this, we ask that you download previews initially and license assets only once projects receive final approval.  
  • Contracts run Sept. 1 through Aug. 31. Asset allocations may change throughout the year as needs fluctuate.
