TIPS & ADVICE


   

WAS BEDEUTET "CREDIT" geben?

- Nennung der Quelle und des Urhebers
Wenn Ihr ein Stockbild nutzt, müsst ihr den Autoren angeben.
Wer euch kostenlos Bilder zur Verfügung stellt, sollte auch gewürdigt werden.
Das genutzte Bild immer verlinken.
Dies gilt auch für Fotos, an denen du Lizenzen erworben hast oder die unter der Creative-Commons-Lizenz stehen.
Fehlt dieser Verweis, kann dies einen Grund für eine Abmahnung darstellen.

Vor allem Fotos, die kostenfrei für die kommerzielle Nutzung angeboten werden,
fordern die Quellenangabe des Fotografen bei der Veröffentlichung. 
Der Name des Autors (Fotografen) muss direkt unter dem Bild genannt werden
(und/oder der Name des jeweiligen Anbieters).

 Informiere dich immer über die Nutzungs- und Lizenzbedingungen.
Manche Fotos sind für kommerzielle Nutzung oder in hoher Auflösung kostenpflichtig.
Oder die Nutzung ist kostenlos, aber im Gegenzug muss der Fotograf genannt werden.

Das Kopieren und Verwenden von Bildern aus der Google-Bildersuche ist nicht erlaubt.

Hello! Would be okay to use one of your stock images as a background on a profile sheet? It's meant to be for a roleplaying group, which means every member that will draw their character will be using said profile sheet (something like this Prototipo Ficha Copia, picture an image in the background) and they will upload it to their gallery. Of course I would credit you on the blank sheet.
Just wondered if that kind of use would be okay :) I hope I explained myself correctly!

I want to commission someone to make a journal skin and a dA custom page box for Core members, and I need a pre-made background. May I use your stock for this? I'd make sure to link a copy of your TOU for them to read and proper credit would be given. If not, it's okay.

Does this mean you allow photo manipulations of your stock  to be used on RPG forum websites with proper credit?
CD-STOCK's avatar
I allow photo manipulations that include my stock images but please tell me what is RPG forum Websites?
Notification and credit are always required.
Roseaic's avatar
Roleplaying Forums. Example would be the site I would use said photomanipulations on: caeleste-rpg.net/index.php
 Typically users on forums like this use photo manipulations in coded tables so people have a reference to what their characters look like while reading their posts. Forums like this also enforce strict rules about crediting the original creators/resources of images and if users do not follow that, the images get removed by staff themselves.

Thank you for the explanation!
It is okay for me.
KerensaW's avatar
Hi!  If we give you credit can we use your photos in contests for Deviant Art?
CD-STOCK's avatar
Yes, you may use my stock in your art for DeviantArt photomanipulation-contests.
Credit and link back is required.

YES !! This rules are cleared AND i love the big text, i do not remind where, a few minutes ago i read rules of another stock provider, the rules were too small to read, i was near a migraine, lol

have a good week !!
CD-STOCK's avatar
Thank you very much for your kind comment!
I also hate the small letters in journals or descriptions. My ability to see is it still very good but I also thinking of others (migraine :D)

Thank you! The same to you!!

Hi,
I see: "My pictures can not be published in their original form."
I cannot use your textures like this: www.fler.cz/zbozi/fraktaly-neu… or this: www.fler.cz/zbozi/nahrdelnik-g… (= paper jewelry).
Is it true?


CD-STOCK's avatar
Hi,
thanks for asking and showing me. Btw. very beautiful jewelry!
It is true, you cannot use my stock images but you may use my textures.
I make an exception for you because I love what you create.
Please show me the result.

are thirty times I read these messages to the rules personally have not used your photographs because if I did I would have written the credits there are many artists who do not do this and I bothered to read your ridiculous post keep up even your photographs there are better ones around and not overcrowded head like you do good lifeRage 
ImaraOfNeona's avatar
You do realize that they're not asking for much??Credit is one way in which we thank people for their stock, after all we are using their images. If you had a stock image and someone used without crediting and notifying you wouldn't you feel upset?I can't believe you.Disbelief

And you are a professional artist.. for real.. in what? :laughing: If you were one, you would know how to deal with stock images!!! LOL
MdnghtDsgndStck's avatar
I find this comment rather disrespectful. if you don't use their stock, don't tell them what to post and just follow the rules of stock artists.
CD-STOCK's avatar
We (dA) urge all artists who rely upon stock or other resources to provide a link to the source in their description even if the owner's terms do not require it. This is in order to prevent any confusion or misunderstandings when using third party resources. When linking please be certain to link to the specific URL (web address) of the source material and not to the website in general.
