Hi,

Hope this hasn’t been covered before—are we allowed to show copyrighted photography in our Live Previews? I’ve noticed some themes with celebrity photos and I can’t imagine they’re approved for resale. I assume these photos are for demonstration purposes only and are not included in the download files but I’m kind of surprised we can even show these in Live Previews.

On a related note—aside from using your own photography or Envato’s asset library, where do you guys find copyright-free photos for your themes?

Thanks, Rick

Thanks! Looks like you still need to get permission for each image you want to include for resale but this is a good resource.

Yeah, some good photos to be found there. Thanks for the link!

Always be sure to read the terms of use, of course. I don’t see any limitation to use their photos in website templates for resale. You do need to give credit to freepixels.com, though. If I missed something else, let me know.
