Hello,

 

I do a lot of graphic art, and use images within my works. I'm confused on which license to go with. The images are heavily edited and altered. I know through Envato's network they specifically point out that works edited within poster art is allowed, but the Adobe terms are confusing me. The image is within the work (that I may or may not sell), but it's heavily altered/edited and not the focus of the design. Any help here on which license to use would be helpful. I attached an example of one of my pieces to help explain.

My question is, which license do you need for assets that you are highly editing? By @geoffriccio
The licence you need for the use you have, irrespective of the editing.

You will need an extended licence for merchandising. So, these two answers are the correct ones! Now, if I understand your dilemma correctly, you are asking if by modifying drastically the original work, can you use a standard licence? ...

If your question is, if you are allowed to edit stock assets, the answer is yes.

My question is, which license do you need for assets that you are highly editing? Sorry if I'm not explaining it correctly. I'm asking which license you need to create/sell poster work like in the attached image in the op. If you are changing the image dramatically, which license do you need to sell the work you created?

So, these two answers are the correct ones!

 

Now, if I understand your dilemma correctly, you are asking if by modifying drastically the original work, can you use a standard licence? That question will be answered by the courts in the case of a dispute.

 

It's like the sampling of music. When did you sample too much and need to pay the licensing fee and need the authorization?

 

I won't answer this for you, and I suppose no one will do. I, personally, would go for the extended licence.
