Just a quick note on stock rules.
These are the rules (or if in doubt, check the actual image page):creativecommons.org/licenses/b…
As for crediting, I'd like to simply be credited with my full name
if it's used as they are
on paper or some other website than DA. Username is fine at DA
. If linking back falls natural, as is usually the case at DA, then that's nice too.
If my picture is just a small fraction of your final work, then don't worry too much.
Whereas I don't put much restrictions to how my images are being used(well, no hate please), please take care when the object that is photographed is owned and/or produced by other people, because then they may have rights too. wiki.creativecommons.org/Consi…
I have taken pictures for a while for regular stock sites, and they don't generally accept pictures that can't instantly be used commercially, and it's tiresome to remove any and all logos etc. from a picture when a typical DA user will change things beyond recognition. But be aware that there are laws about this depending on how
you use the picture.
I merely submit my picture
, nothing else.
