Stock photos and Book Covers

Why it's important to purchase photos from reputable stock libraries

If you use stock photos in your work, it’s important to know the differences between commercial stock libraries and free stock libraries.

Commercial stock libraries, such as Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Arcangel and much more ensure model and property releases are completed and that images contain no copyright infringements.

That means you’re legally covered when you publish their photos.

Many of the free stock libraries state in the small print of their ‘Terms and Conditions’ that the purchaser is responsible for any legal issues that might arise from publishing their photos.
