Hey guys, i have a question regarding photo elements, here goes, for instance if we use some cropped speakers or some other elements (from a free licensed/commercial-use/no attribution photo) in our flyer template to place in the background or something that isnt the main focus, do we have to report this item, as in link to it? I ask this because over the years ive saved hundreds and hundreds of pictures in my library, and of course i dont know the link source already, thats why i need to know if those elements need to be “linked”, of course main elements like models and such need linkage, but i wasnt sure about this background ones, same apply to textures for example, do we need to link to them ?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Dfinepixel,

as per general copyright rules, you are supposed to “declare” anything that is not personal intellectual property. That being said, it’s also somewhat obvious that if you’re using something, you have a license to do so, regardless of the amount of space it occupies within the final design, and linking to it should not be a problem.

That being said, if we’re talking about PD items, you can read up on permissions that come with the licenses here : http://themeforest.net/licenses/photodune_regular <- particularly number #6.

Hope this helps.
