Hi there, here is an idea.

As a digital agency, we often have to choose stock photos to clients and use comps with watermarks before sending it to the client. Once they approve the images then we can purchase the image and replace it with the original image.

Could we have a plugin that integrates with the main stock photo sites (as well as adobe stock photos) and does all the work for us so we don't have to rework the purchased photo again (cropping/sizing/adjustment layers/recreating some of the background or removing it, etc).

That would save us so much time, even non-designers could do it :)

The Libraries panel in Photoshop CC 2015 has a integration with Adobe Stock. If you click the [St] icon in the panel, it will open a browser where you can search for stock. You can add items from the site (either licensed or FPO), and they will be downloaded into the Libraries panel. Dragging them from the libraries panel to your doc will place it as a smart object. You can right click on an unlicensed image in the libraries panel and license it. It will automagically replace the watermarked (FPO) image with the full resolution licensed version.
