Thought I'd get a better response in this forum. Can I use a small part of a Fotolia image (standard license) in a commercial product since this is allowed with Adobe?

This seems fine to me. The final image is modified now and does not resemble the original so it can be used as per your requirements.

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out to the Adobe Stock community.

If you wish to use an Adobe Stock asset for commercial purpose, you will require an Extended license.

For more details on the licensing terms and restrictions of Adobe Stock, please see Stock Licensing & terms FAQ: Where can I find the terms and licensing information for Adobe Stock?

Feel free to update this thread in case of any additional questions.

Regards,

Twarita

I'm a bit confused... in a recent post you said:

"Although, if you wish to combine multiple Adobe Stock images and modify them, you can use a standard license.

However, the image is considered modified when the final modified version of the image shows no resemblance to the original image.

Note: Standard license allows up to 500,000 copies or views of the asset."

My take would be using only a small part should be construed as part of using multiple images to make a picture. Adding too many parts or additions may spoil the new image. My aim is going for simplicity and by using only a few modified small parts, it guarantees no resemblance to the original image.

Thanks

test2.jpgsure. Something like this. I hope it meets your requirements and approval. Fotolia 201367109, 141205696, 183509631. It is possible that I may only use 2 images if I am unable to find a suitable background to meet my needs.

Thanks.

If this doesn't work for you, perhaps you could require that at least one image has to an extended license. I think I could work with that.

Hi there,

If you're using parts of each image it would be modified but if you're using the image as a smaller version then it doesn't count to be as modified and would apply the general terms of use.

For commercial use, you'll require an extended license.

Regards,

Sheena

Sheena, thanks for your response. However, you did not critique or make a determination on the image that was submitted for review. I need clarification before I can proceed work. Based on your text -- using small portions of larger images, I think the image I submitted would qualify for commercial usage. However, this is only my opinion. You may differ.

The cost of using multiple standard licenses can be just as expensive as using an extended license, so it does seem fair.

Therefore, based on the image for review, does it qualify for commercial usage with standard licenses? If not, can you be specific as it relates to the image such as - portions used of one image was not small enough, etc, or make recommendations for compliance.

Thank you so much.

Can you provide the File ID of the original image from where you've taken the portions so that I can check and confirm?
