I wonder about the use of Adobe Stock images as cosmetic items.
I want to use some tileable patterns as gear skins for a video game. (e.g. this image) The pattern would appear on the player gear (e.g. helmet) The player can select the pattern from a list of different textures. They can select the scale, rotation, and condition of the application.
Scale and rotation do what it says on the tin, it sets the texture at 1/4 predefined scales, and rotation sets the pattern's angle. Condition sets a mask that controls scratches and scuff marks on the gear.
What kind of license would I need to be allowed to use the image for this purpose? If I acquire a team subscription that allows 10 images a month, do I need anything more to be allowed to do this? If I need additional images can I use the credits from a credit pack? Do I need to spend additional credits when buying the images?
Look here for more information on licensing: https://community.adobe.com/t5/stock/links-for-licensing-terms/td-p/11366788 (Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based reading and interpreting the licence terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I cannot rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee)
