Hi guys i read through every little detail but i wanna know if you make a indesign template and u add pictures in from various website. To make up your magazine template But u do not give the pictures with the template folder is it copyright infringement ? Because in the end your pictures arent linked so the prints are gonna come out faded and blured.
Hi Anton. If you haven’t already checked out the What Images, Videos, Code or Music Can I Use in my Items? article (which you need to do to pass the authorship test), you should give it another quick skim over.
Even any content that you include within the actual preview (to display on GraphicRiver), cannot just be an image taken from any old website. As the article explains:
Assets used in preview files need to be properly licensed for such commercial use. Because the asset is not being resold or redistributed, you will not need a re-sale or re-distribution license as you would for use of that asset in the download file. However you will still need a license for a commercial use (reproduction) within the preview file. It’s important to read each license carefully to make sure your intended use of the asset complies with the license terms.
A couple of examples of files that you may be able to use (again, from the article)
Here’s a list of assets you’re welcome to use in your preview and/or main download:
- Assets in the Envato Asset Library
- Your own work (however we may still ask for valid model or location release if your asset contains a recognizable human feature or private property).
- Someone else’s items available on Envato marketplace (preview only) – Let’s say you’d like to use a video from VideoHive in the preview of your WordPress theme. This helps you have a nicer looking preview and helps give other authors some extra exposure. This is acceptable as long as you:
- only include the watermarked preview
- only include it in the preview, not the main download
- clearly link to the file in your description
- state clearly that the file itself is not included in the main download
To answer your question on a more personal level.. it depends on the website from which the images are taken. Read their content policies which are likely to outline whether or not your can use their content. If you’re still unsure, send them an email.
Thx Alot Agent
you can also use images from http://photodune.net/ and the good new is that you dont need to purchase them, you can use images from there in your previews, but if you dont purchase the images you MUST credit them in your item description.
If you want to include the images in the download then you MUST purchase the extended license.
Hope it helps
Welcome to another South African here, and good luck with sales.
