EDIT 5/16/2013: In a move to simplify my Terms of Use and make my stock more accessible, I have decided to adopt a Creative Commons License - Attribution 3.0 Unported.

You are free:

:bulletblue: to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit my work

:bulletblue: to Remix — to adapt my work

:bulletblue: to make commercial use of my work

Under the following conditions:

:bulletblue: Attribution — You must attribute the work in the manner specified by me (but not in any way that suggests that I endorse you or your use of the work).

More specifically, you are required to credit and link back to me every time my stock is used, preferably also with a credit link back to my own website for free stock photos at www.freestock.ca. It has become my life and blood these days, and I hope you can appreciate the sentiment as a fellow artist. Some of my older photos aren't there because of quality issues, but you can use the search engine with relevant keywords to find a specific photo (if not you can still credit the image from my dA account).

---

That is all concerning my newly revised Stock Rules. Thank you kindly for the support, your feedback has been very helpful when I asked you about the possibility of switching to Creative Commons :) In the end I hope it will make life easier for you to read less rules, while encouraging a little more fair use and artistic merit by including credits. And yes, this also means you are free to use my stock in premade backgrounds! =D

Regards,

Nicolas Raymond

That's fine if you can credit me somewhere (and a link to my website preferable, freestock.ca). Does not have to be on the painting itself, but maybe include it in an online description of the painting.

Would like to say thank you for your stock images. I used "Jersey X - Exclusive HDR" as a background for one of songs and credited as well as linked back accordingly. youtu.be/c47J12vmi-E

Hello, I'm sorry If you have already answered this question, but do you mind if I were to use one of your designs in a background for a drawing? I would be sure to give credit of course

Thank you :)

Hi there, that sounds fine :) I would prefer it though if you could credit my own website for free stock photos: www.freestock.ca
