  • Stock Photos for Templates

    I'm looking to research stock photos for use in newsletter templates, i've noticed some stock sites seem to forbid such use, any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Yes, templating is usually not allowed. You would have to contact the image house directly and arrange for special licensing. It will cost money.

    Just because a website tells you it can't be done doesn't mean they are unwilling to create a special license to grant certain permissions if the right amount of cash is flashed.

    Sometimes the image house is bound by contract to the owner of the image too. They have the ultimate say.

      Thanks for your response, its actually for a newsletter template that would be two pages prefab with text and graphics and then the other two pages the client would provide the text for and i would be placing it into the rest of the standard template i created. So it sounds like this would be too expensive to get pictures for...

          try www.istockphoto.com - not sure what their policy is exactly, but I think you can use them for commercial use. Not the best photos in the world, but there is some good stuf, and it's cheap!

          www.istockpro.com is the pro version

                  Draw it as stroked arcs. Pathfinder does far more than connect or unite shapes. It also divides, crops and cuts with a mask. You want to divide everything then unite back together the bits so it looks...

                  You are emphasizing teeth.
                  Your doubled text is de-emphasizing the company name.

                  Pathfinder as PD said. Create all of your shapes (don't worry about over and under yet) ... then select all and divide, then grab the "bits" that need to be connected and unite them.

                  Feels very separated. No cohesiveness. It reads more like a poster than a logo.

                  Less is more in a good logo. Needs to be more abstract. You want to be able to communicate the idea with the...

                  The advice I got when I was in art school over 20 years ago was "don't stay here." But by the looks of the maps PD posted, there are very few places to relocate to.
