Hello!

This is my first post and I am quite new to photography. I have been submitting here now and then and trying to learn from my submissions. However i have been recently interested in photo manipulation tutorials found in youtube. I watch them like mad. Well i think should get to the point. ;)

Are there any free stock images that i can use as a base materials when combining a more complicated picture. Could i for example use a field from some picture and combine it with a larger scene and legally sell it in dreamstime?
I found some pictures where theres is a earth lightbulb made using a clipping mask. Are for example nasa images free to use this kind of way? Im guessing stock photographers won't go trough the trouble to travelling to space and take a picture for their lightbulb stock image.

I know it says it on lisences of the site but since my native language isn't english and those can be quite confusing so i figured i should try to ask some starters tips here for this matter.

Thank you all and have a nice day. :)

Ps. Im sorry if this have been asked before but i couldn't find anything with search

Neither I am traveling in your dreams to paint an artwork that for you resambles with one of your dreams :)

There are other means to realise such a image like the one you decribe... you can paint, you can digitally paint, you can use a 3d software.

Of course there is the hard way... but you really should avoid it. I hope this message does not confuses you!

You can't use the free images to create an image of your own and then sell it. If i am wrong maybe an admin can make it clear.

Quoting requirements of image:

- image must be your personal work and you must own the copyright upon everything within it

When you download free image - it does not transfer copyright on you - that means - you are not allowed to upload image composed of somebody else's images (simply because you do not own the copyrights to the used images).

There may well be some resources out there on the net offering free images with the right to resell after using them as the basis of new work,BUT since you can never be sure that the images you use are given away freely by the copyright holder and not some third party its best just to use your own stuff. A few weeks ago a guy on another site got caught for using someone elses free images for sale and had his account closed and forfeited all earnings. my principle is if you aren't good enough to do it yourself then either learn how to do it or forget it, dont try to use someone elses hard work for your own gain

I wanted to create a photo of a girls eye with an Earth image in the pupil. So I needed to find an Earth image, since I don't have any friends from NASA etc LOL I asked admins if I can use a free Earth image for such a purpose. The answer was "no", they said I should own the copyright of everything in my images, so free images are not allowed to use on our works. I don't know how people find and sell Earth images as RF stock, maybe some of them draw it by themselves, but I'm not that talented to draw an Earth from skecth. I think this little story can help you :)

I did a search for "Earth" and some of those are not artistic creations, but actual satellite images. Infact you can find the same satellite image used by different contributors.

I think that the only way that could happen is if these satellite images are in the 'public domain' and therefor usable for stock.

Hopefully somebody with more knowledge could confirm this, because this is something I have always been curious about.

Well i have been digging.

I found out this site:
Everystockphoto

Where you can find free and paid stock images with different licenses. You can choose NASA from the left bar and those satellite images start to appear. There are some I've seen used on paid stock sites and if i read correctly the NASA licence says that you can use and redistribute their images freely as long as you don't link them to NASA or their activities directly. It also says that there is different licences for images and pictures with people on them might need a release.

Again I'd prefer someone with better undestanding in English would read it. :)

I wanted to ask this to admins, but honestly I was too lazy to ask it, so I just canceled my "Earth in the eye" idea. Well...it was already a cliche with lots of other examples :)

If I have to get serious (and I don't LOL), we should draw our own Earth image looking at another Earth picture or smth like that. What is more, there are many tiny Earth's for sale, we can always grab one and take photos of it to use it in our works.

I'll still prefer to get a original photo of Earth, from space hahah
