Adobe completes its buyout of Fotolia stock content marketplace

Smack in the middle of the holiday season, Adobe announced its intention to acquire stock content marketplace Fotolia, which specializes in royalty-free photos, images, graphics and HD video, for $800 million in cash.

Today, that buyout is complete and Fotolia’s asset collection will now be integrated into Adobe’s Creative Cloud subscription service, letting its 3.4 million members access and purchase Fotolia’s stash of more than 35 million images and videos for their designs.

Adobe says it will also continue to operate Fotolia as a standalone stock service, accessible to all, with or without a Creative Cloud membership.

Fotolia operates in 23 countries and has websites in 14 languages.
