UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED AND/OR REQUESTED MY STOCK IS SOLD AS IS!
Disclaimer:
1. As is indicates that my stock images are sold in the formats seen here on display: .jpeg, .png, and .psd. I cannot re-save files into incompatible formats such as taking an image created in Photoshop and save it in Vector format.
2. Images on display, with the exception of small watermarked images, are the maximum size that I have. While I can scale down an image, I cannot upscale one without potentially losing quality.
3. While I can change the color of an image, not everything is feasible, please inquire first.

What constitutes commercial use:



:bulletpink: Any use from which you, the stock user, will generate profit, real or in online currency of any form. 
:bulletpink: Any use that will aid you, the stock user, in generating profit. Ex. Business Cards and Logos.
(You may use my stock in dA prints and deviant sponsored contests free of charge. I will not consider these actions commercial use.)

Commercial use includes but is not limited to:


:bulletpink: Things in print: Book covers, CD covers, e-Book covers, T-shirts, pillows, menus, banners, fliers, etc.

(See things in print above)


I want to use your image commercially, what do I do?


:bulletpink: Contact me by sending me a note or commenting on the stock you're interested in.
:bulletpink: Please be sure to read the entire commercial use journal (this journal) prior to contacting me.

:bulletpink: What you intend on doing with the image.
:bulletpink: What you believe to be a fair price.
:bulletpink: (Book) Print or eBook. Number of copies expected to print.


How should I pay you?


:bulletpink: After you have contacted me and we have agreed on a price I will set the stock of your choice up with a commercial use policy and make it available for payment in the option of your choice:
1. A download under the deviantART premium content platform where you may pay in points.
2. Or, you may send a dollar amount payment to my PayPal e-mail: katie_litchfield@yahoo.com

:bulletpink: Please do not send payment to my donation pool.

:bulletpink: In the event you want to use my stock for a book cover, I may waive the stock price in exchange for a free copy of the book and an internal credit.


Crediting Commercially Used Stock


:bulletpink: Purchasing my stock doesn't exclude you from crediting me if at all possible.
:bulletpink: The method by which you may be able to credit me may vary by type of commercial use.
:bulletpink: Credit using my name: Katie Litchfield
:bulletpink: When possible, credit using my name and a link back to my stock.


FAQ


:bulletpink: May I sell your stock as is?  No. Don't ever ask to sell my unmanipulated stock.
:bulletpink: May I make and sell pre-cuts from your stock? No.

So just to clarify, we can use your wing PNGs for commissions, just so long as we don't charge more than 400 points?
I just want to double check to make sure I won't break any rules

I would like to use two stock images for deviations as an example for an event on facebook for animecon. It is to show what we can do with photo's when it comes to manipulations. Would there be any surcharge in this case? I will post the images on deviant (not for selling purposes) when they are finished and off course backlink to you on deviant. (credits in an event image are not possible but I can put them on the events page when it's up.  It's moonscape and beauty in winter. (i still have to start deviating so might take a while to finish)
Kind regards Karin

Hello,

Thank you for inquiring. So long as you're not making any profit on the image itself, my images are free (provided they are not premium). Please link back to me where you can and show me the finished image.

Thank you,
Katie

Hi Katie,

 I am creating a book cover for Rev. Kimberly Marooney - Author - Angel Blessings  The book will be in print and is a manual,  also a postcard to hand out
I see that you may possibly take a book in exchange for the image but if not I need to know how much you would charge for this image. I'd like to show you what I have done with it but not sure how to attach the file here. thy-darkest-hour.deviantart.co…

Thank you, Love your work!

Hello,

Thank you for inquiring about using my wings. For a self-published type of book I usually charge $5.00 (via PayPal) and a mailed copy of the book that includes a credit.

Hello, 

Thank you for inquiring, I charge a small fee to use my wing stock commercially. However, if you're only using it to show customers what you can do and they aren't in anything for sale then please feel free to use them for free so long as I am shown the images.

Thanks,
Katie

Premium means that they cost for the download, however, a premium stock purchase does not include a commercial use license.

Does making a logo/poster that you're just going to post on DA (not make into a print or anything) count as Commercial Use?

Hello and I love your work. I am interested in using AirbrushedWings1 - White.png for commercial use, if possible and agrees with my pocket book. I am creating a logo for a non-profit organization for low income families/individuals. I did read above and hopefully this comment does not frustrate you if I didn't read the commercial usage of your work. Thank you kindly and respectfully yours.

Hello, 

Thank you for your interest in my wings stock, I'm glad that you like my images. 

Per your request to use Airbrushed Wings 1 - White for a logo, how does $8.00 sound?
If that is all right, its payable to PayPal katie_litchfield@yahoo.com and if at all possible, I'd like to see the logo.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but if we use any of your stock are we allowed to edit the colors slightly (like the saturation, hue, brightness, etc..)? Or would you prefer them to be left as is?

Hello,

It would have been a more appropriate question for my rules journal. No matter, I answer questions no matter where they're left. My stock is free to use in any manner so long as some sort of change/addition is made to it and I am credited appropriately and the use is personal. Basically: Anything with photomanipulation is okay.

For a little research before answering your question I took a quick visit to your gallery and your work is wonderful indeed. One thing I noticed though is that you've been pulling images from places like Google and wallpapers so I wanted to let you know that these aren't legitimate stock issues and it is potential copyright infringement to use these works that aren't designated as stock, I wouldn't want you to have to take any of your wonderful images down. help.deviantart.com/306/ help.deviantart.com/157/

Thank you for the reply and so sorry my question was in the wrong place.

And I'm going to try and dig to find the proper sources for the model images, I believe most of the ones I have are from the same wallpaper website. Thank you for explaining that to me, I appreciate it.

Hi! I am working on a dust jacket for a set of books for an author. All the current book covers are done, but we want a new look for the jacket. Only 10 will be printed and none sold. They are all gifts. How would you handle this if we wanted to use your wings on this jacket? These will not be distributed commercially. Thank you!

Hello,

Seeing as it is going to be free (given as a gift) and only ten printed, you may use them free of charge so long as I get to see the image, and perhaps a small credit if possible.

May I use this image (blond updo) for my daughter's hair for Cinderella?  Non-profit…just a fun project I'm working on and promised her I'd make her Cinderella.  Also, if I can use them, can I remove the side rolls?  Just want the bun.  Thank you.  :)
