We have resurrected this sort of in-app stock photo application with our free Fotolia CS Extension available at http://www.fotolia.com/adobeplugin
This single extension installs in InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, CS5 or later, from a single file, which works in Mac and Windows. As Adobe stated when they discontinued this program, they put work into making such an application easier for third parties to develop, and they sure did: the CS Extension technology available with CS5 is awesome. We found this very fun to create and would welcome any feedback.
May be because of competition in Royalty-free stock photo sites and decreasing prices of digital cameras day by day.
