Terms of Use For Images
Published in Free Photo Gallery

Please read these terms carefully. My photos may be used only in accordance with these terms. I've tried to keep them as brief as possible.

General premise

  • If you use a free version of a photo you must acknowledge Sally Stoneking (the photographer) and cbsally.com. I insist on this because it is a fair way of rewarding me for offering my work to you at no charge
  • If you make a donation or purchase a photo, the photo acknowledgement is optional

Type of use - applies to free and paid-for versions

  • Photos may be used for personal, educational and corporate work
  • Photos may be used in products that are sold, but only where the photos are used for illustration or decoration
  • Photos may not be used on products where the image is the sole reason someone would buy the product - for example greetings cards, mugs, calendars, T-shirts and so on

Websites - corporate and personal

If you use a free image on a website, you must place a text hyperlink on that website to www.cbsally.com. This includes forums, blogs and networking sites such as Facebook.

Simply copy and past the code in this box to your website. Or give the code to your webmaster.

Suggested HTML code

You may construct the link as you see fit, and it can be placed anywhere on your site, but it must mention Sally Stoneking / cbsally.com

Suggested HTML code:

The link will look like this:

Image: Sally Stoneking / www.cbsally.com

If you make a donation or purchase the photograph there is no requirement to place a hyperlink.

Printed media, including newspapers and magazines

If you use a free image in printed media, please acknowledge Sally Stoneking and www.cbsally.com as the image source. This includes newspapers, magazines, newsletters and company literature.

Books, eBooks and CD covers

Our images may be used to illustrate books, eBooks and CDs. If you use a free image you must acknowledge Sally Stoneking and cbsally.com as the image source.

If you purchase the photograph or make a donation to the gallery, there is no requirement to acknowledge us.

Software, iPhone applications and video games

My images may be used by software developers in applications and games. If you use a free image you must display a visible acknowledgement to the photographer and cbsally.com in the program, for example on the loading screen or "about" page.

If you purchase the photograph there is no requirement to acknowledge us.

Video productions

If you use a free image in video productions, please acknowledge the photographer and www.cbsally.com.

If you purchase the photograph there is no requirement to acknowledge us.

Emails - personal and marketing messages

If you use a free image in an email, you must place a text hyperlink within the email to http://www.cbsally.com.

If you donate to the gallery or purchase the photograph, there is no requirement to place a hyperlink.

School Projects

Images can be used freely in school projects. Please contact us if you need clarification.

Artist's Reference

Photos may be used as reference for artists, but exact duplicates must not be sold unless written permission and arrangements have been made. Please contact Sally for details

Image Manipulation

My images may be edited using software, however these terms still apply and you must acknowledge the photographer and cbsally.com (or purchase the image to avoid giving acknowledgement).

PowerPoint, Word and other end-use applications

If you use a free photo, please acknowledge the photographer and www.cbsally.com as the image source.

If you purchase the photograph there is no requirement to acknowledge us.

Unacceptable use

You must not:

  • Offer the images for sale or distribution
  • Claim them as your own work
  • Include them in "web templates" which are subject to mass-distribution, whether the templates are free-of-charge or paid-for. This is because of difficulties in ensuring terms are adhered to by the ultimate website owners. There are no exceptions to this rule.
  • Use them on merchandise where the image is the sole reason someone would buy the product, for example greeting cards, T-shirts, mugs and so on.

I have deliberately kept these terms brief. If you need any further clarification, please contact me. I will be happy to clarify my terms for your specific project. Although I make every effort to respond in two business days, please allow seven business days for reply.
