You are free:
to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit my work
to Remix — to adapt my work
to make commercial use of my work
Under the following conditions:
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!
