Art & Illustration Templates Best Practices
Follow these best practices to ensure acceptance of your files to the Adobe Stock marketplace. Art & Illustration files must have editable elements in order to be considered as templates - add options for a user to change text, colors, and other customizations. These sets should be created in either Photoshop or Illustrator, and must follow the guidelines for each app.
Design Elements/Backgrounds Sets must have each element organized on separate artboards - one element per artboard. This allows users to easily export each element individually. Include extra text options and/or layout artboards to give users the ability to easily combine and use the elements together within the template file.
Texture Sets must have separate layers for each texture. They should include a well-labeled [YOUR IMAGE HERE] placeholder layer (set up as a Smart Object or a clipping mask) for users to insert their own image.
