:star: Royalty Free Stock

As the name implies, this is a deviantART site set up to provide Royalty Free Stock for people to use. A lot of stock sites here on DA ask that you don't use their Stock for commercial purposes, or require the artists permission, or request royalties if you do. Any photos from this gallery are free to use in your artwork without any credit or payment. You can't, however, sell the images on as they are. You have to be creative with them and use them in your own art :aww:

Any Stock featured in this gallery is free for personal or commercial use, on or off of deviantART :nod:

We do not require any credit, but it is always appreciated if a link back to RoyaltyFreeStock is provided in the description if it's featured on DA - just so other people can find us :)

This gallery is really new and will mostly feature my own personal Textures, which I use in my digital illustrations, until I can find some more people willing to donate stock!

I would LOVE for this to be a big collective site for stock, especially Textures. If anyone would like to donate textures or stock to the gallery feel free to note me and I'll upload it (and credit you in the description).

If you'd like to donate Stock to the gallery all I ask is that the photos be large, and not contain people (as I really can't be bothered with model release forms~). Oh! And please remember that any stock donated to the site will be Royalty Free, so you can't demand credit or money! hehe. Please make sure it's Stock that YOU'VE photographed/created... not images you've found on another site! We don't want to get in trouble ^^;

Right now I'd LOVE photos or scans of patterns, like wallpaper, curtains and fabric - especially old geometric retro patterns and floral/damask wallpaper, etc! Or any handmade papers and stuff~

Other stuff to upload:
• Stock photos of objects/plants/animals.
• Stock scans/photos of patterns and textures for digital art.
• Digitally created stock of patterns.
• Anything else you can suggest!

Obviously none of this stock is exclusive, as it's free for all. Also, as I (and many of the artists who might donate stock) are not professional photographers some of the photos might not be of the highest quality, however we offer them to you in the hopes you might be able to find a use for them all the same :)

Thanks and enjoy!

I think it's commendable what you are trying to do, but please understand that in the stock photography industry the term "royalty free", does not mean "license fee free".

"Royalty free" means that the downloading party pays a one-time license fee (at this point on many sites, it's pretty low) to download and use the image for free for the remainder of the license period (which is usually "perpetual"; or "forever").

The benefit here is that the licensing party doesn't have to pay a fee every time they use the stock image.

Of course, there are always restrictions of some sort on how, where and when one can use an image once one has licensed it, but those restrictions are pretty close to what you have above.

Anyway, not trying to rain on anyone's parade, just thought you'd like to know.
