As I mentioned, there are services like Adobe Stock or Shutter Stock who have really good high quality stock images, but the thing is that the content is really expensive, but certainly premium quality.
The honest thing, is that not most of digital marketers or creative people have the enough resources to be spending money on those kind of assets, therefore I find Envato Elements as a great alternative where you can find stock images, stock video, after effects templates, music and sound effects free of copyright, graphic, graphic templates, fonts, wordpress and cms templates as well as plugins.
Creativity doesn’t have a limit, and I amazed of how easy can be to create content with the digital assets that Envato Elements offer for such a cheap subscription.
I see mainly more advantages than disadvantages. Of course they might not have premium videos like Shutterstock, but certainly the variety and diversity of assets that you find here is a genuine piece of gold where you can start creating any kind of digital content.
