Hello fellow TF authors!

I am designing a music press website I want to submit to Themeforest and would like to make it look as legit as possible by using CD cover artwork from various artists. I’ve done a bit of research and it looks like this isn’t possible rights wise. Does this mean I should mock design the 30 – 40 artist CD covers myself?

Any other suggestions from seasoned authors would be appreciated!

Thanks!

You can just use them for Demo purposes., etc there is no need to make so may mockups, provided only if you include links of the Mocks up in the description !

So are you saying, you can use any image you like in the demo as long as it’s credited and not supplied in the download? WOW! Really? Thought you would need the rights to even display in the demo?

Artzone’s advise is completely wrong. You can’t use other peoples images without their permission. If you do not own the copyright to an image you cannot use it.

You have three choices:
  1. Create your own.
  2. Use an online generator to create some.
  3. Ask copyright holders for permission to use their images. A good idea might be to ask local musicians as they are more accessible.

Hi, hope this helps:

Can I use watermarked assets from the Envato marketplace in my own item’s preview?

Yes, you may use watermarked Envato marketplace items (with the Envato watermark) in this way: •You do not need to ask permission of the other author of the watermarked asset. •You can only use the watermarked asset in your item preview, not the download file. •You need to credit the author of the watermarked asset and link back to the original asset page in your item description.

Can I use assets from the Envato marketplace without a watermark?

Yes you can if you buy a Regular License. This will allow you use the asset you’ve purchased in your item preview – you don’t need to use the watermark, and you don’t need to credit the author or provide a link back (but it’s always nice to credit your fellow authors if you want to!).
