We wanted to create a common-sense, plain language usage license for free stock images, granting broad commercial rights to users while allowing photographers to retain control of copyright and image resale & distribution.

This license is for image providers who want to collaboratively help others succeed in building a better business, product or portfolio, but not provide material for bulk redistribution or print-on-demand products.


Super simple license summary:

  • You can use images for nearly any purpose, commercial or non-commercial, without attribution.

  • You cannot sell, redistribute, or relicense the images, and you cannot sell products which derive their primary value from the image.
