Hi, I wanted to know. I want to use the stocks on commissioned book covers for non-commercial use. Is there any separate rule that I have to follow [Under $50 mark]?

If anyone involved in the project is being paid then I consider it as a commercial use, so no there is no separate pricing.

hi, i used one of your stock as a reference and this is how it turns out !! i was joining some kind of art challenge every month that can make the artists be more productive by joining, and there is no winner, I'm guessing it's okay right? cuz' i didn't use it for commercial use.

if you are not being paid to make the cover, and the book itself is not being sold on any platform and is available for free and you also credit me for the stock use, then you may use my stock image for free on the cover.

if anyone involved is making any money on the project then you need to pay my fee.

Hey, I have used one of your stock for my Photoshop study...since it is a learning level then of course no good for sell, or for commercial; is it ok I post it on my facebook? I also list your image link for sure. Here is the link of my study work.

Hi, I would like to use your photo(s) as reference to paint and record the painting itself and show the painting process on my Youtube channel. Is that permitted?

hi, as long as you follow the rules above thats fine by me :)
DavidLspeedpainter's avatar

I read through down below and saw that others asked the same question and the response was yes, and stick to the rules. So I plan to do a live recorded painting of an Alice in Wonderland pose inside a digital painting, then show the resulting painting on my Youtube channel. I will then credit you and your work with it. Any objections let me know, thank you for your incredible, beautiful work. Oh yeah, if you want to see MY work on Youtube, it is right here:

Hello Miss! 

I wanted to know if it's okay to use your non-exclusive stock freely to make non-commercial Wattpad graphics without payment or asking you first.

Please reply.
