Hi

I have until now in all my designs used pictures from www.sxc.hu without having any trouble. However when I tried to upload my latest design it got rejected because I haven’t aquired some license to redistribute the images. This has never been an issue before but if authors needs to have e special license for every picture used in a template I would rather get the pictures elsewhere.

Are there any stock image website where you don’t need any license and are free to use all the pictures as you wish?

Getting permission from the image authors at sxc.hu is really easy. Just shoot them a message about the image your asking about and ask if you can use it in a website template that will be commercially resold on a multiuser basis. I’ve never been turned down and pretty much all the authors at sxc.hu that I’ve asked have said something along the lines of “Use it however you want.” and a few ask to see it in use and a few ask to be credited.

It’s no biggy and most of them get back to you pretty quick.

Yup, but it would be a bad idea for them to close down sxc.hu because it attracts a lot of people looking for free images which they can turn into paid buyers. Either way it’ll take awhile before any change to sxc.hu happens.

Thanks for the fast replys..

I read the welcome message which among other tings says: “Need a pic for your commercial website design?”

I just interpreted that this gave the right to use the image in a website design sold here but i was clearly wrong :)

I will send and email to the image authors to get their acceptance.
