Hi everyone,

We just came across the guideline for using stock images from PhotoDune, including the following:

” You are not allowed to distribute or display any PhotoDune images in any digital format at a resolution greater than 1000×1000 pixels in on–line or electronic publications, including web pages, unless it is included in your site’s design.”

Isn’t that a little outdated? What about retina displays, or those giant full screen banners you see in many recent designs. Yes there is the argument of copycats etc. but on the other hand most Online-Demos of the Themes we publish here, are also completely accessible.

It just kept us from actually buying stock photos for our latest theme, which is a shame as there are many great photos available :-(

Thanks!

You gotta be kidding me?! I just purchased a ton of stockphotographs from Photodune for a new theme release. Please tell me this can be changed! I have used them for fullscreen sliders (1920×1100px) and some images have a width of 1090px but vary in height. It’s already hard enough to find quality content that we can use so why make it even harder?

Hopefully using them in theme previews applies for: “unless it is included in your site’s design”.

@ShapingRain,

Where did you get that info from by the way? I have checked the licensing but it doesn’t say anything about images that can’t be larger than 1000×1000.

10.You can’t use an Item in a digital format at a resolution greater than 1200×800 pixels, unless the Item is incorporated into a digital product (like a website design) such that the Item can’t be extracted.

Hi, we got that from here http://notes.envato.com/authors/using-photodune-images-in-your-marketplace-files/

it’s as confusing to us as it is to you.

Thanks @ SR! Man, that is quite confusing! I just received an email from Kingdog saying he would try to get some advice from one of the Licensing gurus so if they happen to read this thread, here are a few questions.

1. Are we able to use fullscreen photography that is subtly altered in Photoshop (filters, color changes etc.) at a size greater than 1000px?

2. As ShapingRain asked, how does this apply to retina-ready devices?

It appears the size restriction is a bit of an industry standard. Hopefully this will evolve with the introduction of retina displays.

Sorry Travis, but it’s still unclear to me and frankly doesn’t answer my questions. Do I need to wait for the licensing gurus?
