The terms adiabatic and vertical electron affinity (https://old.iupac.org/reports/1999/7110minkin/e.html#electron_affinity) are also used with respect to the ionization potential or ionization energy (https://old.iupac.org/reports/1999/7110minkin/i.html#ionization_potential). As these are sometimes easier to imagine, the following websites might be of help as a start:
