I like to take alot of photos, so I'll be uploading alot of stock images, if you do decide to use them....

You are required to give me appropriate credit as photographer where and however possible. My stock is free; the way you 'pay' to use it is by crediting me. It doesn't need to be in big letters on the image, it can be in text or a link or in liner notes, or whatever - but it's your responsibility to acknowledge if my work contributes significantly to yours. If you post a link, I prefer it to be to my personal website ( www.madscientistdesignz.com )  

- PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CREDIT ME ON THE WORK if you do decide to use any of my stock images.
- DO NOT SELL MY PHOTOS OUTSIDE OF DA WITHOUT MY PERMISSION
- COMMENT ON THE PHOTO IF YOU DECIDE TO DOWNLOAD OR FAV
-  Other than the tutorial exception, you MAY NOT redistribute my stock as is, you have to make noticeably changes to it first, to make it your artwork. Once it is your work, you can do what you want with it. If you are not sure, contact me first and ask. (Write to my email madscientistdesignz@gmail.com )I check my emails daily, so if you mention "response needed quickly" or something similar in the title, i will get to your question within a few days at most.
- You are allowed to post works based on my stock in other places (RedBubble, Renderosity, Facebook, Twitter, Tublr, personal websites, contests, whatever) but please maintain a credit to me where appropriate and possible.
- Do not simply upload my stock to a pay site; if you do that, you'll get a DMCA request from me and possibly I'll sue you for damages. These images are for photo-compositors and artists; they are not to be used as content in and of themselves.

I would really appreciate the cooperation and the honor displayed by the following of these simple rules, as will I if I decide to use someones stock images on DA.

If you violate any of these rules or violate any of my copyrights you are prohibited entirely, forever, from using any of my stock in any way, shape, or form - commercially or otherwise. No appeals and no amount of begging will help; decisions are final.
