Stock Images & Restrictions

Website and Design Development

During builds, we use stock images from the following online sources. This is included in your package as part of the design of the website.

Where can I get free images?
When you are searching for “free” images you are actually looking for “creative commons licensed” or “public domain” images. These are images that can be used personally, commercially, and with no attribution.
See list above of Freshysites favorite stock image websites!

Can FreshySites provide images for additional collateral (social media, printed pieces, etc.)?

We are limited to only purchasing/downloading the images from our Adobe account and using them for the website build and projects. FreshySites is unable to share image rights outside of our company.

Recommended Options

  1. FreshySites can design/develop the collateral on request for additional images
  2. Establish an account with Bigstock or Adobe (or any online stock websites) and purchase images accordingly for your company's use.

Part III: Restrictions

Part IV: Miscellaneous
20. “Non-transferable” as used herein means that except as specifically provided in these TOS, you may not sell, rent, loan, give, sublicense, or otherwise transfer to anyone, Content or the right to use Content. You may, however, transfer Content to a third party for the sole purpose of causing such third party to produce and/or manufacture your goods incorporating Content subject to the terms and conditions herein.

Important Note: Why can’t I put an image I found on Google Images onto my website?

Here’s the thing -- technically you can put an image from a google image search onto your site. It’s so simple why not do it? Because it’s against the law and you can be heavily fined. Copyright law is no joking matter. 
The owner of that image on the internet has the right to tell you if you can or cannot use it. Some may say you can use it if you give them proper attribution (“Image provided by John Doe”). Others will say you can use it for personal use but not for commercial use. Meaning, you can print out the image and mail it to your grandma, but don’t put it on a coffee mug and sell them in your online store :) See above where you can find free images to use on your site!
How do they find out you took the image?

There is software available to track where images are on the internet. Many of which you can use yourself, like TinEye. Companies like Getty Images and iStockphoto have people on staff looking for images that are being used illegally.
