Hi Maria, I am an Artist that Create Canvas Art Prints for Sale - Have a look at my Instagram Profile on my work & tell me if its okay to Manipulate & sell artwork with your stock photos. Much appreciated ;) IG: @johanjjf

I'm sorry if is a stupid question but just to make sure that I not doing anything wrong.

I can't post a photomanipulation outside devianart using a stock of yours (instagram for example) even if I credit you and the photographer? I'm doing just for hobby nothing commercial.

She also then says: "You can post your work off-site including printed portfolios as long as credit is given to both me and the photographer."

No, what she means is that you can't take her stock photo and post it on another site as a stock photo.

I'm interested in using your stock for an OC creation. I see you placed that I am unable to use your work on other websites. I create characters on an app called Amino and am wondering if I am allowed to use your photos for it. I can credit and add links as needed.

I've used some of your stock photos in the past for my photo manipulations on DeviantArt. I was hoping to use one or two of these photo manipulations that use your stock to display on my Fiverr profile the sort of art that I do. I wouldn't be selling the photo manipulations, only using them as examples of my work. Would this be acceptable? Would I need to pay any royalties? Is there a specific way you'd need to be credited?

Thank you! :-)

If I used one of your picture as a pose reference for a painting, and then got prints made to sell and also sell the original would that be okay?

Hej Maria - dine billeder er intet mindre end fantastiske! Er det ok at bruge dine billeder som references til commercial works?

Jeg er børnebogstegner og kunne rigtig godt tænke mig at bruge dine billeder som pose-reference til personer i illustrationer. Så selve dine billeder er ikke en del af de færdige tegninger, men personernes udtryk/pose vil være stærkt inspireret af dine billeder.

Er det i orden med dig?
