    The license at 123rf doesn't allow for full transfer of the image license you purchased. According to those rules, it sounds like when you sign over the design and the images, you are telling the client...

    HotButton
    If the color behind the text is a solid color, your best bet is to make a swatch color that would simulate (approximate) the desired transparency and apply it to the drop cap. If there is some form of...

    Be careful of the colors you select. That bright light green is not reproducible in 4-color printing.
    Plus it is visually weak in comparison to the rest of the words....

  • Copyrights in blog posts?

    I'm curious about whether or not my blog infringes on copyrights or anything of that nature. I want to start posting more blogs like this...

    That's a question best answered by a lawyer. Not sure if it would fall under "fair use" or another exception to copyright laws.

        I feel people are fairly lenient about this online. If it's an online ad, link to the company who's advertising. People might be less friendly about a critique, but as far as I know you'll get either a request or a cease and desist before anyone attempts any legal action.

        If it were me you were critiquing, I'd be happy for the free publicity.

              Argue "editorial content." You are writing an article. You can do that just like you'd be able to do it in a newspaper op-ed.
