Adobe's 'Fashion Collection' Features All Your Favorite Stock Image Cliches

Limited Edition T-Shirts Show How Cheesy Photos Used to Be

Adobe is promoting its Adobe Stock image collection with a limited edition clothing collection that pays tribute to some gloriously cheesy stock photos from the past.

Adobe Stock Apparel, created by Swedish agency Abby Priest, consists of T-shirts and sweatshirts with almost iconic cliched images from stock photo websites over the years -- like "happy office workers pointing to blank sign," "happy senior couple piggybacking at the beach" and "laughing woman eating healthy vegetable salad." The idea highlights the difference between then and now and how Adobe Stock has increased the workflow.

While the collection isn't actually for sale (it's being sent to a "select audience" as part of a direct marketing campaign), if you want to indulge in some nostalgia for stock photo cliches, you can take a look at it online at the Lookbook.
