One of my students has another question. At first I thought I had the answers, but then I realized that this one is actually more complicated than I thought it was.
I am interested in using stock photography for some business materials. I am new to this whole online business thing, but have been socializing online since I was much younger. I’ve been babysitting for over 3 years and have been making some good money at it. I am going to college in the fall and want to continue with it. I want to maybe even turn it into a regular job since I’ll be all grown up and stuff, maybe live with a family or work with several families 20 or 30 hours a week.
Anyway, I want some stylish marketing materials with my picture on them and some cool text and other things that I’ve already designed. However, I’m confused about stock photography sites. Some of the images are free, and then there are all this licenses and commons licenses too I think. I have no idea what’s going on. One time I thought if you paid for something that you could use it for whatever you wanted, but then I found out that sometimes you can’t alter it even if you paid for it, or you can’t use it in certain materials. I have my own vision for my little business and I want to put text over the images and manipulate them any way that I want to. However, I don’t want to steal someone’s hard work or break the licensing rules. I believe in doing good things and good will come back to you. Can someone here explain the whole stock photo thing in terms that make a little sense?
