Stock Images From Dustwood Media.

Need stock photos or images for your website, social media profile, promotional materials, slideshows, greeting cards
or commercial products?  I offer a good selection of original stock images for your commercial, business, non-profit or
personal use.  Those on these pages are available for free download under a Creative Commons BY license. 

What Are Stock Images And Why Should I Care?

Stock images are images that you can legally use online or in printed materials.  Stock images may be in the public
domain, or are made available to you by the photographer.  Except for public domain images, the creator of the image
licenses it to you, sometimes for free, sometimes for a fee.  The creator decides what uses are permitted.  (For more
about public domain, copyright, and Creative Common licenses, see the Copyright page).

Whenever you find a stock image online, be sure to check the licensing so you know whether you can use the image
for what you need.

All of my stock images can be used in:
book manuscripts
album covers
promotional materials
letterheads, business cards and other business documents
product packaging
commercial products such as coffee mugs, totes, t-shirts, calendars
greeting cards for commercial sale or for personal or business use
prints or posters
reference photos for creating artwork
and more!
