How to delete Photos from Adobe Stock

As an Adobe Stock contributor, you have the flexibility to manage the photos you have uploaded to the platform. If you decide to remove any of your photos from Adobe Stock, the process is straightforward and ensures that your content is removed securely and responsibly.

Important Note

When you delete a photo from Adobe Stock, it will not immediately disappear from the platform. It will remain available for purchase for a specified period, allowing other users to continue benefiting from your contributions before it is permanently removed from the library.

Access Adobe Stock Contributor Portal

1. Navigate to the Contributor Dashboard

Sign in to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal using your registered credentials. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be directed to the Contributor Dashboard.

2. Locate Portfolio

Within the Dashboard, locate the “Portfolio” section, which displays a list of all your uploaded images.

3. Select Photos for Removal:

Identify the photos you wish to remove from Adobe Stock and click on the “Edit” button next to each photo. This will open a pop-up window with options for managing the photo.

4. Initiate Removal:

In the pop-up window, locate the “Delete file” option and click on it. A confirmation window will appear, prompting you to confirm your decision to remove the photo.

5. Confirm Removal:

Click on the “Delete” button to finalize the removal of the selected photo from Adobe Stock.

Repeat for Additional Photos

Repeat the process of selecting, editing, and removing photos from your Portfolio until you have removed all the photos you no longer wish to have on the platform.

Check for Pending Removals

Periodically check your Portfolio to ensure that any remaining photos you have marked for removal are successfully removed from Adobe Stock. This may take some time, as there is a waiting period for photos to be completely removed from the library.


By following these simple steps, you can effectively manage your Adobe Stock portfolio and remove photos you no longer wish to share with the public. Remember, your contributions have helped enrich the Adobe Stock library, and your decision to remove certain photos does not diminish the impact you have made.
